Banana Soft Serve

Ok Banana Soft Serve is my latest food addiction, I just realized this tonight as I was making it!  Lets just say there was an over abundance of bananas in the house (and they were going bad) so I froze all of them! I froze 12 bananas, and that was after using 3 of them to make delicious Banana Muffins!  I used this recipe from Gina's Skinny Taste, although I just used chocolate chips and left out the cocoa powder!

But lets get back to talking about the 12 frozen bananas in my freezer and what the heck I have been doing with all of them!  Lets be honest I can only make so many different variations of the banana muffin!
So what have I been making, have I been going bananas over this simple recipe?  The answer to both of those questions is YES!

Fitness and Travel

Well I am looking at my calendar, and the weeks of travel drastically out number the days I am going to be home!  I don't think I have traveled this much in a while.  Since I am going to be on the road, or in the air a lot I decided to dedicate todays post on staying fit while you travel!
If you are a runner (my favorite form of cardio)  Look up trails in the area you are traveling, or plan a running route.  I have several different running routes I take when I am in Dayton at Marks house, and the lodge we are staying up North has a great bike path right out side of our cottage!  Cardio Check!  

Here are my stay fit tricks for while I travel!
1-Pack your gear.  I always bring my Nike+, Running Shoes, and exercise cloths!
2-Pack Healthy Snacks. Packing healthy snacks for flights, train rides, and road trips not only saves money but lets you control what goes into your mouth!
Some of my favorite snacks for the road are apples (and peanut butter) veggies, if I take the train PB sandwiches are always a go, granola bars, trail mix and yogurt!

3-Be inventive.  Sometimes I do not have access to a fitness center when I travel.  So for strength training I do lots of push ups, and I bring a pack of resistance bands!  I will also map out runs on local streets or bike paths!
Check out the resistance band work outs here.
4-Relax a bit, after all you are on vacation!
