Frozen Nanners!

Summer heat getting to you? I know it has me sweating... what better way to cool down (and get rid of those ripe bananas sitting on your counter) than making Frozen Nanners on a Stick?

That's right, there is no better way! Hooray!

Take some time out today to whip these up and I promise you won't be disappointed. They are delicious and hit the spot.

Acai the Amazonian Superfruit

The palm-like Acai (Ahh-si-eee) is one of the Amazon forest's most celebrated trees- all thanks to its luscious blueberry-chocolate flavored berries and their long heralded nutritional support for well-being. Acai is loaded with antioxidants that help protect against free radicals that can damage cells, including those of the joints, heart, skin, immune system and eyes! A staple of the Amazonian diet for centuries, Acai features a dense nutritional profile that is perfect for promoting overall health.

A study published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry confirmed Acai's antioxidant qualities. Study participants who received Acai pulp and juice, compared to placebo, were found to have elevated antioxidant capacity in their blood within four hours of consuming Acai. Another study that analyzed Acai's nutritional content found the berry to naturally contain multiple flavonoids and anthocyanins, antioxidant compounds that help support overall health and wellness.

and I was like, where'd who go?

I know, I know! I have been MIA for the last couple of weeks. 

A lot has been going on at our paleo household. Getting ready for summer, holidays, trips, high school graduations, and birthdays! Somewhere along the way, I fell off the paleo wagon... for two whole days to be exact!!! 

Memorial Day weekend catapulted me off the wagon and into the land of pancakes, strawberry frosted lemon cake, tortilla chips, more cake, pasta , more cake, and French Fries!!!! Oh my!

I am back on track now and feeling very guilty about those two days... but something just snapped, and I gorged! I must have put of at least 5 lbs and inches in my bloated belly!

So here I am, back and at it… eggs and an apple for breakfast, Mexican chicken salad for lunch, some nuts and banana for a snack and chicken with sautéed vegetables for dinner, followed by some fresh organic berries for dessert!
