    Chocolate Chip Banana Bread - MSST

    Oh heyyyy banana bread! It’s been a while… I’ve missed u :)

    I’m going to have to say, this summer has been pretty rough in terms of my health and well-being. Don’t get me wrong: I’ve been having so much fun traveling (hereee), hanging out with friends, and relaxing by the poolside. However, I have literally destroyed my diet. I’ve been eating tons of ice cream, burgers, and chocolate… last month, the only things I ate one day were french fries, a couple cubes of watermelon, and a giant ice cream sundae! My body did not like that; I felt sick and bloated from the ice cream, and I could barely function because I had literally no energy.

    So, this past week, I’ve made it a goal to eat healthier and work out a little more in preparation for my upcoming #summermarchingbandgrind. I’ve been following a couple workout videos on YouTube, going on walks outside (yes, even in the crazy 100 degree Texas weather), and cutting out a lot of sugar from my diet. Obviously, I still treat myself, but I’m making sure not to skip meals and putting only wholesome foods into my body!

    I ended up purchasing a ton of bananas to use for acai bowls and smoothies. However, of course there was no way I was going to eat so many bananas myself, so the first thing that came to mind was to whip up a loaf of banana bread! Overripe bananas are perfect for banana bread. This is a recipe I’ve had saved in my notes app for the longest time! I was so so excited – I hadn’t made banana bread in ages.
