Gluten Free Banana Bread

Gluten Free Banana Bread

by Maria Alison at Ten at the Table

 

I am so thrilled to have Maria as my guest today sharing her Gluten Free Banana Bread. I know that Banana Bread is just an all time favorite of mine and always a treat. I can’t wait to try this recipe out! I hope you all enjoy this great recipe that will be perfect for sharing. – Angela

 

I like to take the gluten free option whenever there is one. And you can hardly tell that this banana bread is gluten-free. It’s moist, insanely delicious, and has the same texture and flavor as banana bread made with wheat flour! Sometimes I like to add chocolate chips to the banana bread, like I did today, and it just takes the banana bread to another level. The chocolate chips are completely optional but I use them for the flavor and the health benefits. You could also add in some chopped nuts if you’d like. read more

How to Get Stronger Nails Naturally

I normally had very strong and bright white fingernails… but when I was nursing I noticed that they weren’t as strong or growing like I wanted.

That’s when I started to do some research into what are some natural ways to make our nails healthy and strong.

 

 

Foods for Strong Nails

There are many different foods that can help strengthen our nails and many of these fit right in with a healthy diet too!

 

Gelatin

Adding gelatin to your diet can be an easy way to strengthen your hair and nails. Gelatin is a great source of protein and can help improve your digestion. It is also beneficial for healing inflammation in your digestion tract. You can make fun homemade gummies to increase your gelatin in your diet. read more

How to Restore a Non Stick Pan

How to Restore a Non-Stick Pan

I love using my Orgreenic Non-stick pan for cooking eggs and making grilled cheese sandwiches. I’ve had it almost 2 years now. I learned a while ago that I need to re-season or Restore a non-stick pan every 6 months to keep it working so foods won’t stick.

I had to learn how to restore a non stick pan before I went out and bought another pan just out of frustration. I tried these steps and it really worked! My eggs stopped sticking in the morning. I regained my sanity after not having to scrub the baked on eggs every day either.

I did this about 6 months ago… Adam and I noticed that our eggs were starting to stick again, so it was time to restore our non-stick pan again. I didn’t know if you knew how to reseason a non-stick pan, so I wanted to show you what we do.

Here is the pan we have:

How To Restore a Non Stick Pan

First, you heat the pan on medium to medium high heat for 2-3 minutes.

Second, you add your coconut oil to the pan and let it melt. We use about 2 tablespoons.

Swirl the coconut oil around in the pan so that it coats the entire surface.

Let the coconut stay in the pan until it starts to smoke.

Once the oil starts to smoke, remove it from the heat and set it aside to cool.

Once it is cool, take a paper towel and rub the oil into the pan again.

By heating the pan, you open up it’s natural pores and allow the coconut oil into the pores.

Now, your pan is seasoned and restored! Your eggs and foods shouldn’t stick anymore. You can also use this technique with cast iron skillets. 

 

Have you re-seasoned your pans before? How do you do it?

8 Trim and Healthy Pancake recipes

Pancakes bring up so many warm and fuzzy feelings inside me. They just scream Saturday mornings with the family. Traditional pancake recipes are full of carbs and sugar (with fat too!). All these together do not help a mama stay Trim or Healthy. 

These Trim and Healthy Pancakes are the perfect solution for you and your family. Keep the traditions going with slow Saturday mornings and gather around the kitchen table with some yummy pancake goodness without the guilt or blood sugar swings. These will leave you satisfied and not crashing in an hour.

I love Syrup so much too.

I LOVE pancakes smothered in lots and lots of syrup. I want every bite to be full of the syrup-y yumminess. Usually you have to worry about all those sugar calories in normal syrups… but not anymore!

Story of a Stay at Home Mom

Story of a Stay at Home Mom

If a mom pours a cup of coffee,
Then the toddler will ask for eggs.
You make her eggs and cheese, but then she decides she would rather have oatmeal and pineapple.

You decide to not fight about it because eggs sound good to you… With your coffee – that is cold now. So you put it in the microwave.

Just as you sit down with your eggs and coffee, the baby wakes up and needs to be changed and fed.

You run upstairs, change baby, come back downstairs and sit to nurse. Feeling hungry and thirsty now because nursing does that…

You put the baby in Exersaucer, put on PBS for toddler.

Sigh. Your coffee is cold. Put it back in microwave along with eggs.

Sit down with hot coffee and eggs. Eat one bite.

Toddler wants her snack… You fix an almond butter sandwich… Licking your fingers for a taste of food.

Toddler wants to play a game. ‘Let’s play tea party.’ Where she will pour you a cup of imaginary… Coffee.
