I could write a long list of excuses about how I’ve been straight hustlin’ at uni for the past month and that’s why I haven’t been keeping up with the blog, but what I’m going to say instead is that I effing SUCK! Blogging is my actual favourite, so even when I am crazy busy, I need to make time for it. Just studying and working all the time will make me go batshit, so this is me publicly making a promise to get back in the game. But like, fully commit. None of this fair weather blogging crap. So if you don’t see me posting semi- regularly, you need to hit me up on Twitter or Facebook and be like “blog, bitch!” and I totally will.
Ok so, for reals, what’s been going on? Well remember I was nommed for that sweet award? Yeah well, I totally won second place in the Food and Drink category! Got a badge and everything (legit). It’s over on the right-hand sidebar if you want to take a peek! The public vote counted for 1 of the 6 votes, and the remaining votes were split between a panel of judges. MASSIVE thanks to everyone who voted for me. I was delighted just to have the nom, but actually getting runner up is HUGE! Hundreds of blogs are nominated each year, and only a handful make the shortlist, so it’s pretty incredible to think that people think this is one of the best ones out there! Or maybe the judges were drunk? Either way, I’m over the moon
Ok so I have a really cool new recipe idea for you. Although the term ‘recipe’ is perhaps a bit too strong as there are basically two ingredients. Anyway, know how all the cool kids are eating avocado toast these days? (Just search #avocadotoast on Instagram if you don’t believe me). Well, it’s getting kinda passé at this point if you ask me. I’m sooooo over it.
I take that back. That’s a lie. It’s the best. BUT. If you do want to up your avocado toast game then read on!
Introducing BANANACADO TOAST. Yeah, that’s avocado AND banana. Together on the SAME TOAST. Shit’s crazy man!
A little sweeter than your basic avocado toast, but oh so delish.
I’m not even going to insult you with a proper recipe here. Just mash together 1/2 a ripe avocado with 1 ripe banana. Add a little lemon juice to stop it browning if you like, and then adorn with your favourite toppings! Here I used a raw seed mix (sunflower, flax, pumpkin, linseed, sesame) and a little sea salt (left) and a drizzle of coconut nectar and sprinkle of cinnamon (right).
K, let’s talk about potassium (lolol science joke!). But srs, bananas and avocados are like, WAY high in potassium. Bananacado is basically a new superfood that I invented. And, research shows that high potassium intake is associated with lower blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. But is can help reduce pain associated with chronic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. But as if you need an excuse to eat bananacado toast!
Banancado toast doesn’t give a shit about your arbitrary mealtime norms either, so just eat it whenever the fuck you feel like it. Breakfast? Sure! Lunch? Whatever! Midnight snack? Go for it! Just make sure you show it the respect it deserves by smashing it all over a worthy bread like the Food Doctor. Also good with some fresh, crusty rye bread.
So when you make this (which you inevitably will), what I need you to do is tag me on Twitter or Instagram and use #bananacadotoast and let the revolution begin!
In other news. Going to London this weekend which only means one thing: WHOLEFOODS. Beyond excited. My first visit since leaving the states. GOING TO BUY ALL THE THINGS. Expect a ‘That’s my Jam’ post sometime next week
Until then, be well little ones!
