Easy Banana Nut Bread

Ever wonder what to do with your extra ripe bananas?

Fun fact about me: I HATE eating ripe bananas by themselves–I much prefer my banana in the “perfectly yellow” stage–anyone else with me?

When I am low on time, rather than just throwing my overly ripe bananas in the compost pile, I like to peel & freeze them so I can later add to oatmeal or smoothies. BUT when I have extra time on my hands (like all of us during this quarantine phase), I love to bake with them!

Ripe bananas are a great addition to basically any baked good–cookies, muffins, brownies–and quick breads! Not only does it add a sweet element to baked goods, but mashed bananas can also substitute oils or butter in a recipe.

Easy & Healthy Banana Nut Bread

Banana nut bread is probably one of the most popular quick breads out there-so hopefully you’ll give mine a try! This is no lie-the BEST quick bread I have ever made–and I’ve made a lot!

The best part? This banana nut bread contains wholesome, nourishing ingredients! While there is a time and a place for rich & dense sweets & desserts, I like to make nourishing treats because:
*they still satisfy my sweet tooth
*they keep me full (more fiber)
*they make my body FEEL good

Intuitive eating is all about eating what make your body FEEL good–sometimes it may be white sugar + white flour + buttery banana nut bread–but other times, it will be the quick bread with more fiber + less sugar + more nourishing ingredients. All foods can fit into a healthy lifestyle!

Triple Berry Cobbler (Refined Sugar & Flour FREE)

It’s berry season! Which means strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries are typically on sale at the grocery store every.single.week and this makes me very happy!

IMG-3782

In the hot summer months, I have the luxury of owning blueberry bushes–so I can stock up on a bunch for the year! However, around this time every year, my frozen blueberry stash depletes…and I have to buy frozen or fresh at the grocery store. Luckily for me they’ve been on sale lately!

Berries are rich in antioxidants which battle the “free radicals” in the body to fight off the development of inflammation + chronic disease. Berries are also a good source of polyphenols (a naturally occurring chemical found in plants)–more specifically anthocyanins (blue/purple pigmentation in plants), micro nutrients and fiber. Studies have shown that these components are associated with improved cardiovascular health with “improved LDL oxidation, lipid peroxidation, total plasma antioxidant capacity, dyslipidemia, and glucose metabolism”. 1

There are endless ways to enjoy berries!

  • Fruit Salad
  • Homemade Fruit Salsa served with Cinnamon Pita Chips
  • Mixed Berry Smoothie
  • Mixed Berry Yogurt Parfait
  • Berries to top off an Ice Cream Sundae for dessert
  • Mixed Greens Salad + Berries
  • Berry Muffins
  • Berry Pancakes/Waffles (adding berries to the batter)
  • Banana-Berry Oatmeal 
  • Add on top of cereal
  • Eat on its own!

While berries are very enjoyable on their own, I love adding them to baked goods! Below you will find my refined sugar FREE Triple Berry Cobbler using only 3 Tablespoons of maple syrup in the whole.entire.thing to sweeten it up! Use whatever berry combination you like–I used strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries. This will be the PERFECT patriotic dessert for Independence Day coming up!

  • Other Berry Options:
    • Raspberries
    • Acai Berries
    • Boysenberry
    • Elderberry
    • Black Raspberry
    • Mulberry

ALMOND JOY Granola

It’s been a hot minute since I made homemade granola! Who else loves a good crunch with a yogurt parfait or on-top of a smoothie bowl? This girl does!

IMG_3807

Granola oftentimes gets a bad rap because many store bought ones are high in fat, calories, and sugar. While all of that is true, you can make granola in the luxury of your own home CHEAPER than you can buy it and you can make it more nutrient dense!

In this recipe, I use old fashioned oats (complex carb + soluble fiber), chia seeds (rich in omega 3 fatty acids + fiber), whole almonds (healthy fat + protein), and dark chocolate (antioxidant) as the base. Some other additives: maple syrup (only 2 tablespoons for the whole batch), unsweetened coconut flakes, stevia sweetened chocolate chips, and coconut oil. Find full FREE printable recipe down below!

NOTE: If you like things a little sweeter, feel free to bump up the maple syrup to 1/4 cup instead of 2-3 tablespoons.

10 Minute Ab Workout

We all have fitness goals–and building a strong core is one of mine.

Below you will find a demonstration of 5 different ab workouts with modifications. See instructions for workout below:

**Go your own pace, take breaks when you need it, and feel free to do the modification step.  Even if you’re just starting out, the modifications STILL engage the core and you can still achieve results.

Complete 2 rounds of each exercise for 1 minute each–resulting in a 10 minute workout. Try to complete ab workouts 3-4 times a week for maximum results!

  1. PLANK:

    • Engage the core and try to keep a straight line form (hips are not hanging toward the ground, butt is not up in the air). You may complete these with straight arms (working on the shoulders as well) or with your elbows down (focusing more on core)
    • MODIFICATION: Place knees on the ground, but still engage core (you will still get a great workout)
  2. SUPERMANS:

    • With your body lying front-side, flat on the floor, lift upper and lower halves of body (kind of like you are flying like superman). You may bend arms or keeps arms straight.
    • MODIFICATION: I find bending arms is a little easier, make sure you continue squeezing those muscles!
  3. BICYCLES:

    • Lying on your back, bring opposite elbow to opposite knee while keeping your belly button in and core engaged.
    • MODIFICATION: The higher you raise your legs, the easier the exercise will be, but still effective!
  4. LEG RAISES:

    • A little advanced, this exercise works the full abdominal region. In a back-lying position, keeping your legs straight, simply raise them slow and controlled up and down–really engage the core and try not to lose form.
    • MODIFICATION: Place your hands under the small of your back (this will help control the core easier).
  5. PENGUINS:

    • Lying on your back with knees bent, use your hand to reach to the back of your heels (working the oblique muscles).
    • MODIFICATION: The closer you bring your heels in to your butt, the easier this exercise will be.

 

 

I hope you all enjoy this workout! Make sure to tag me @livebetterwithkatdetter or #livebetterwithkatdetter if you try it.

Fresh Pico de Gallo

With summer just around the corner and gardens beginning to produce an abundance of fresh veggies and herbs, I decided to share my pico de gallo recipe.  Summer is the season of cookouts, BBQ’s, and grilling, and I guarantee this salsa will be a crowd favorite.

IMG-3656

About a year ago, I learned how to make this pico from a coworker who is from Guatemala.  I never made fresh pico de gallo before, and I was surprised that I liked it because I am not a big fan of tomatoes or cilantro…but combined with limes, jalepeno, and onion, this fresh pico is addictive.

And of course, pico de gallo is naturally nutritious! Tomatoes contain lycopene which is a powerful antioxidant (fights free radicals in the body to prevent  cancer and chronic diseases), onion (high in fiber, vitamin C, folate and potassium), cilantro (vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, fiber), and lime (vitamin C).

Full, FREE printable recipe below and make sure to tag @livebetterwithkatdetter and use #livebetterwithkatdetter in your creations!

  2. Dice 1/2 vidalia onion and add to tomatoes in serving bowl.
  3. Slice jalepenos in half. Using a spoon, scoop out jalepeno seeds (you may keep the seeds if you want extra heat). Dice peppers and add to tomatoes + onion in serving bowl.
  4. Finely chop fresh cilantro and add to other ingredients in serving bowl.
  5. Juice 3 limes into ingredient bowl.
  6. Add salt + pepper to taste.
  7. Marinate for at least 30 minutes or overnight to enhance the flavors.

Inside My Herb Garden: Basil

This is my first year cultivating an herb garden! Mind you, it is a super small scale herb garden, but I am so excited to have fresh herbs to add to my dishes.

I have various kinds of herbs in my garden, but today I want to highlight basil. I have THREE types of basil in my garden right now: sweet basil, Thai basil and purple basil.

 

Sweet Basil

Arguably the most popular form of basil, sweet basil is well known for its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties–making this herb perfect for anti-aging and decreasing chances of chronic diseases. This flavorful herb is used in many different cuisines but primarily known for Italian cooking such as pesto, bruschetta, caprese and various pasta dishes.

Sweet basil is rich in vitamin A (eye + skin health), vitamin K (healthy gut microbe), vitamin C (antioxidant + wound healing + immunity), magnesium (aids in metabolism), iron (transports oxygen), potassium (aids blood pressure), and calcium (cardiac function + blood clotting + strong bones). Adding a few fresh leaves of basil to your dishes will not only add freshness but will also boost the nutritional content of your meal.

IMG-3594

Thai Basil

Have you ever gone to a Thai restaurant and ordered a “Basilia” dish? You might be eating Thai Basil! Just like the name states, Thai Basil is an herb used in most Southeast Asia cuisines–especially Thai. Infused in many curries, sauteed with meats and veggies, or simply used for a garnish, Thai Basil is mildly sweet with a little more of a bitter, licorice-like bold flavor than sweet basil. In most recipes, Thai Basil can be substituted for sweet basil, making them interchangeable.

The nutrition profile of Thai Basil is similar to that of sweet basil being rich in vitamin A (eye + skin health) and vitamin C (antioxidant + wound healing + immunity) as well as vitamin E (antioxidant + skin health).

IMG-3599

Purple Basil

In all honesty, I had never heard of purple basil until I planted it in my garden! The deep, rich purple color is a nice accent to my other herbs, and it smells divine–quite similar to other basil family members. While there are similarities of this herb to other basil plants, this herb is more earthy, less sweet, and comparable to the flavor of cloves. Purple basil is primarily used for infusing oils and vinegar as well as garnishing dishes.

This herb is nutritionally comparable to other basil, meaning it is high in anti-aging and anti-cancer properties. In general, purple plants are high in anthocyanins, which are antioxidants that may offer anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and anti-cancer benefits.

IMG-3596

Incorporating basil into diet ideas:

  • make your own homemade basil pesto (traditionally made with olive oil +pine nuts + basil)
  • toss with other mixed greens + veggies for a salad
  • homemade salad dressing using fresh or dried basil
  • saute with veggies
  • add to pasta dishes
  • top fresh pizza
  • caprese salad with mozzarella balls + fresh basil + grape tomatoes all tossed in olive oil
  • combine with watermelon + feta for a refreshing summer salad
  • make a panini with fresh basil + mozzarella + tomato
  • freshen your water with basil + lemon
  • infuse olive oil with purple basil for a strong, aromatic flavor

 

As summer approaches and my garden starts producing large quantities of herbs, I will share some of my favorite recipes and harvesting hacks–this is all new to me, so I will be learning along the way! If you have any harvesting tips or tricks for me, comment below or contact me here.

Total Body Interval Training

Anyone stuck in a rut with workouts?
Here are some exercise ideas to incorporate into your workouts—whether they be at home, at the gym, or at a park!
Now that spring is here and the weather is nice, I love to go running but want to get a total body workout in as well…here are a few ideas to get a great total body workout in at your local park or greenway: ***i show modifications to most exercises in video so the workout is friendly for all fitness levels 😊

 

Interval Running/Jogging + Exercises:

•go to your local green-way/park and run/jog/walk (whatever your fitness level may be). Every time you pass a bench, stop and complete one round of 30 seconds work: 10 seconds rest of the exercises shown above. Complete as many rounds as desired, aim between 3-5 rounds. ***modify as needed!
•instead of doing exercises for 30 seconds work:10 second rest, you could choose repetitions instead. For example, when you come to a bench, do 12-15 reps of each exercise, 3-5 rounds.
These are just a couple of examples and the options are endless! The most important thing is that you MOVE your body and do something you love. Get out, enjoy the sunshine and build those vitamin D stores ☀️

What are your favorite types of workouts?

HEALTHIFIED Reese’s PB Eggs

IMG-3456

Easter is just a few days away, and if you’re looking for a more nutritious dessert to take to the family Egg Hunt, I’ve got ya covered!

One of my favorite Easter candies is Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs…why are they better than regular Reese’s? I have no idea…they just are! And I am thrilled that I was able to make a healthier version to fuel my body with healthy fats + natural sweetener + protein for a great sweet treat.

This recipe is essentially refined sugar  free (except for the sugar in the 85% dark chocolate I used) using medjool dates as the sweetener. Using natural peanut butter gives this recipe healthy fats and protein with no added sugars. Pro tip: look for nut butters that only have “nuts & salt” as the ingredients.

 

Below is the decadent recipe for Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs! Feel free to substitute recipe ingredients to what you have in your pantry. This is my version. Make sure you tag me in your creations! @livebetterwithkatdetter

  4. Chop dark chocolate and add to a microwave safe bowl with coconut oil.
  5. Microwave at 30 second intervals until smooth consistency.
  6. Fully dip eggs covering all sides and place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Homemade Granola Bars

Another one of my go-to mid day snacks! Perfect for a pre-workout snack or dessert.

This recipe is a variation of my chocolate chip peanut butter energy bites  , and they are  even easier to make.

IMG-3285

Essentially using the same ingredients with different ratios, this recipe does not require any ball-forming but just a simple mixture of ingredients and placing in a baking dish to refrigerate for a few hours.

This recipe contains oatmeal, natural peanut butter, honey, unsweetened coconut, chia seeds, and dark chocolate chips. Protein + carbs + heart healthy fat to get you going.

*Nutrition Fact on Chia Seeds: high in fiber (good for digestion & feeling full), protein, calcium (for bone health), manganese (antioxidant to protect body from free radicals-damaging cells in body), and magnesium (protein production, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation). Great addition to any baked good, smoothie, or jam.
