Tart Beet Berry Smoothie

Starting off Friday morning with this tart beet berry smoothie bowl on my couch in nyc. I’m obsessed with the color of this smoothie and the tart beet berry combo is one of my favs. Super excited to go see a functional medicine doctor for a routine visit (said no one ever, right?!) I think functional medicine is so interestingΒ  even tho I have zero medical background (I am an engineer by degree). I’ve been waiting for this visit for months so hopefully it’s worth the excitement. Happy Friday!

Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Added Sugar Free Banana Bread πŸŒπŸž

My Monday morning at the airport is looking pretty good with this banana bread for breakfast 🍌🍞🍌🍞🍌🍞🍌🍞It is gluten free, dairy free, added sugar free and I am absolutely loving it. I was never really into baking but didn’t want to toss my overripe bananas last night before I flew out this morning so repurposed them to make banana bread.Β They are great to have as something sweet and i also love bringing it to the airport with me as a sweet, healthy breakfast.Β
