Do you have a bunch of old bananas in your kitchen? Why not try making Banana Nut Bread or Banana Nut Pancakes? This simple recipe is extremely delicious, and when you taste the bread (or pancakes) you’d be surprised to find out that you’re eating something that is Gluten-Free, Lactose-Free, and has no processed sugars or additives.
Healthy food can taste great, and this recipe proves it.
2 1/2 cups Brown Rice Flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt
1 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground Nutmeg
1/2 cup chopped Pecans
2 Eggs, beaten
6 ripe Bananas, mashed
1/3 cup Raw Honey
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup melted Coconut Oil
Step 1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray bread pan with coconut oil spray.
Step 2) Mix rice flour, baking soda, sea salt, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and chopped pecans together.
Step 3) In separate bowl, mix the eggs, mashed bananas, honey, vanilla, and melted coconut oil cream.
Step 4) Add banana mixture to dry mix.
Step 5) Pour batter into your bread pan.
Step 6) Bake for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Depending on the size of your bread pan, you may have enough batter for two bread loaves or one loaf with extra batter to make some muffins or banana nut bread pancakes!
For banana nut pancakes, just pour some batter on a pan, and slowly cook the batter on a low heat until thoroughly cooked. Serve with maple syrup.
Whitening your teeth has become a fashion statement that seems to be here to stay. We all see the beautiful white smiles celebrities have, and we want the same bright smile too. You may have a healthy shade of white teeth, but compared to your friends and co-workers with bleached teeth, your teeth might just look yellow -but only in comparison.
Simply put, colored molecules found in some foods and drinks can get absorbed in your tooth’s enamel surface. This causes your teeth to become less white with time. If you want a brighter smile, you may want to avoid red wine, coffee, tea, cigarettes, mustard, and even blueberries.
Problem with Professional Teeth Whitening
Most, if not all Teeth whitenings contain hydrogen peroxide. This is a harmful chemical that can destroy your gums and nerves and will make your teeth very sensitive.
Natural Solution to Whiten your Teeth
Here is a little homemade remedy that will brighten your smile:
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
Step 1) Crush Strawberry and then mix in the Baking Soda.
Step 2) Spread Strawberry mixture onto your teeth and leave on for about 5 minutes.
Step 3) Brush and floss your teeth to clean out the Strawberry mixture.
Note: You can do this natural whitening to your teeth about once a week. You don’t want to overdo it, since the acid from the strawberry can start to damage the enamel on your teeth. Use in moderation, and enjoy your whiter teeth!
