FFF: Veggie Egg White Mozzarella Scramble: Restoring the Muscles!





I make eggs for breakfast at least four times a week. They’re easy, high in protein, filling, and pair well with vegetables. Eggs are also good after a good workout for restoring the muscles. I usually make omelets, scrambled eggs, or hard boiled. Yesterday, I did the scramble with some extra fillers! 



This scramble had 1 cup mixed bell peppers, 1/4 cup mozzarella, 1/4 cup peas, 1 cup diced summer squash, and 5 egg whites. I always sauté the veggies and then add them to the scramble. Once the eggs are done, I mix in the cheese.
How do you prepare your eggs?!

The Nail Files by Yaya: Lets Go To Paris

Lets go to Paris...with our mani! Here's another DIY idea for your nails. Items I used are base coat, pearl polish, pink glitter polish, black polish, top coat, stripper and dotter.

Here's How
Step 1: Apply base coat to all nails
Step 2: Apply pearl polish to all nails
Step 3: Apply glitter polish to tips of nails. You want most glitter to be at the tips of your nails and less glitter going closer to your cuticles. 
Step 4: On one nail add polka dots 

Drawing the Eiffel Tower
Step 1: Start by drawing a v-shape
Step 2: Add three lines crossing the v horizontally. Add a smaller line to the bottom of the v, a longer line closer to the top of the v and a medium line in between but closer to the longer line. 
Step 3: Add a u shape that connects the tips of the v to the shorter line. This will represent the bottom of the Eiffel Tower. 
Step 4: Fill in and spaces you feel need filling.


Final Step: Apply top coat to all nails.

FFF: Chocolate Chip Banana Bread



When I woke up this morning, I went into the kitchen to pour myself a cup of coffee. I noticed the overly ripe bananas sitting on the counter and suddenly had the urge to bake banana bread. That is something my mom would do. My mom made banana bread at least once a month because no one in the house would eat bananas, and she continued to buy them. I didn’t mind, because I love banana bread. The best kind of banana bread is moist, falls apart easily, and has just the right amount of banana power.
I didn’t have my mom’s recipe on hand, so I went to the best source for banana bread…the internet. When it comes to baking, I like to find recipes with the best reviews. That way, you know it’s good. After doing some research, I found this recipe for banana bread on Food.com It had over 550 reviews and most of them were 4-5 stars. After writing up this blog post, I’ll be adding another review and another five stars to the page.
I like simple to follow recipes and this was definitely one of them. It took about 10 minutes to prepare and one hour to bake. While the banana bread baked, I sipped on my coffee and enjoyed the delicious banana bread aroma that filled the air. No need for banana bread candles when you can have the real deal floating around.

Ingredients: *1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 cup), *1 cup sugar (you can replace with 1 cup of baking stevia) *2 eggs, beaten, *3 medium extra ripe bananas, finely mashed, *1 1/2 cups flour, *1 teaspoon baking soda, *1/2 teaspoon salt, *1 teaspoon vanilla, *10 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips.


Directions:
  1. Cream together butter and sugar.
  2. Add eggs and crushed bananas.
  3. Combine well.
  4. Sift together flour, soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture. Add vanilla.
  5. Mix in chocolate chips (walnuts, pecans, white chocolate, raisins, and macadamia nuts are all great fillers)
  6. Pour into greased and floured loaf pan.

-Bake the loaf for 50 minutes at 350 degrees. Turn oven off and let the loaf sit in the oven for an additional 15 minutes.

I like banana bread when it is fresh out of the oven. But, if you are not going to eat it right away, store it in the fridge so that it will stay nice and moist.
I was extremely happy with the way the banana bread turned out. The texture and flavors were spot on. I move into my new place next week and I can’t wait to start back up baking and cooking new recipes. I know I’ve been slacking in that category, but it’ll all be back to normal soon!
