Pssh, and they say bacon is bad for you. A picture with my boy, Bacon.
Good morning everyone! I’m getting ready to head off to the gym and get some chest/tricep action. Should I be a douche and put up a picture of myself post-workout? Haha :P
In regards to nutrition, I told you guys I was going to go a week without logging my macros onto MFP, simply because it was too taxing for me to keep doing the same shit over and over. So I said fuck it, I’ll eat what I want and however much I want of it, while keeping paleo.
^ That picture of me is the result of “the week long not giving a fuck what I eat while maintaining paleo experiment”. Oh, and that #405 deadlift I pulled? Yeah, I give some credit to my nutrition. Who jumps 17 pounds up their previous PR in two weeks like that?
Relevant, and completely necessary. I need this shirt.
I may eat the same stuff almost every day, but DAMN I can just never get tired of it. High amount of proteins, CRAZY amounts of fats, and low carbs, only getting them from plantains, yams, or vegetables. For today..:
Plantains and avocados are fully ripe and good to go.
I have a full loaf of banana bread ready to consume.
Eggs, bacon, butter, and possibly grass-fed hot dogs all in stock.
I’m currently running on about 20-21 hours with nothing consumed but water. I’m going to workout, take my BCAAs and might as well fast into the 24-hour mark, where I’ll be eating the same, delicious food. Don’t worry, you guys will be seeing it. ;)
Talk to you guys soon!
Paleo Cinnamon Banana Raisin Walnut Bread
Jesus, that’s a mighty long name for a food. Let’s just call it PCBRWB. Much easier.
3 Bananas *Go for ripe, approx. 300g total.
2TSP Raw Honey
1½ Scoops of Vanilla Whey Protein Powder *Controversial paleo? Only for those that aren’t 100% I guess. Sub in 1TSP vanilla extract, or more if you so desire.
½C Almond Flour
¼C Coconut Flour
¼C Walnuts *Crushed.
½TSP Baking Soda
¼TSP Sea Salt
Preheat your oven to 350F. Take all of your dry ingredients, mix into a bowl, and set aside:
Now, with your handy handy blender/processor, place the bananas, eggs, and honey into whatever you have and blend:
Next step? Pour the mixed concoction of raw deliciousness into the dry mix, AND MIX IT UP ‘MON:
Mmm, THAT ACTION SHOT THOUGH.
Next up, grease your bread loaf pan, whatever the hell it’s called, up with your choice of poison. I use PAM Olive Oil spray:
It really didn’t stick guys! :P
And pour your batter into the pan thingy:
Looks good, right? NOT YET.
..Then lick the spatula.
Alright, see that ½C of crushed walnuts you haven’t used yet? TIME TO MAKE THE CALL TO THE BULLPEN:
I won’t lie to you if I was short a few walnuts while spreading it on the bread..
Place in the oven, bake for 35-40 minutes (Depending on your oven; mine is convection), and kill some time while waiting for this delicious bastard to finish baking. They should be done after 35, but stick a toothpick in it and make sure it comes out clean, just to be safe.
Ready for some #bananabreadporn?
Alright, maybe I exaggerated a little.. But you get the point.
And that’s all there is to it guys! I honestly can’t tell you how long these last, because since I’ve made this, the loaf disappears within 2 days. And it’s not just me. For my family to like it enough to eat it says a LOT on how good this is.
Maybe I’m just hyping everyone up. Fuck, sorry if it takes like total shit and you’ll unfollow me and hate me forever.
By the way, I haven’t tried making this WITHOUT whey protein powder.. If you take it out, I’d assume just add ¼C of almond flour or something..
If you’re the group that likes it, high five. You can toast these bad boys in the oven/toaster and put some of that grass-fed butter. DELICIOUS!!!!!
