A perfect snack. Recipe coming this Monday… for our protein banana bread (it’s grain, gluten, and egg free)!


With all this eating, we had to burn some calories off, right haha.

Did a little sprinting the other day with the best running partner – JAX.

  1. My weekend was great! Yesterday, I went to the farmer’s market and I was craving something sweet, so I got an almond croissant. It really hit the spot!
    I also had a race this morning and I had a lot of fun 🙂

  2. I love these round ups – it’s been such a crazy week I felt like I fell behind! Baking failures never go to waste in my house. I had one this week but it just become a tasty protein smoothie bowl topping. 🙂

  3. I can’t wait for the protein banana bread recipe – banana bread is one of my favorite things ever but can be LOADED with added sugar, which I’m sure yours won’t be :).

  5. I’m so grateful that you guys have so many great recipes to post. I’m curious: what might you suggest for someone who wants to try your protein powder recipes but can’t tolerate whey (not even grass-fed, hormone-free, squeaky clean) and can’t tolerate grains or soy (of any kind)? I probably know the answer already, but you have so many awesome protein powder-inspired recipes that I would love to give ’em a try if I can…

    1. We would suggest hemp protein powder, that is another favorite of ours other than brown rice protein. We hope this helps.

  6. I am also looking forward to the banana bread recipe! As Megan said, we know your recipe won’t have a lot of extra sugar added like most banana bread recipes do. 🙂

  7. Round ups are so much fun. I should start doing them on my blog again too. Love to see what other people liked around the web and enjoy reading through. So thanks for the “How to do a Handstand” link up – I never managed doing one, so I’ll make sure to check this out.

  9. What is your sprinting routine?

    Posted on August 5, 2013 at 10:56 am
    1. we vary what we do in terms of sprinting, but the other day we did a tabata style sprint – 10 second rest and 20 seconds of sprinting for about 8 minutes total.
