Pimp eats - Paleo Banana Muffins


Came home one night last week and was craving this banana cake that my girlfriend Talia made for me at her house a couple of days prior. Since I like to eat clean when I'm home I wanted to create a healthier version, so I found this Paleo banana muffin recipe and played around with it. And that is when this recipe was born.
WARNING- There is no sugar in this recipe except for chocolate chips (I wanted to create something as guilt free as possible), but it still tastes delicious. Here is the final recipe below, let me know how it turns out for you. 

Ingredients
  • 6 bananas (or for more sweetness substitute 1 of the bananas for 1/2 cup of organic apple sauce)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond butter (or any other types of nut butter- crunchy peanut butter is awesome as well)
  • 4 tbsp organic, grass fed butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder (gluten free)
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • pinch of kosher salt

Directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Combine bananas, eggs, nut butter and butter in a mixing bowl
  • Than add to the mixture the remaining ingredients
  • Grease your muffin pans (it will make around 12 muffins) and pop it into the oven. Bake the muffins from 30-35 minutes. Make sure you check at the 30 minute mark to ensure the middle stays moist.

fall in love with fall layers







Its not a surprise that I am a Fall type of girl. The crisp air, pumpkin spice lattes, and of course the art of layering. Layering is done primarily to keep you warm. Remember those days when your mother would put you in so many layers that you couldn't even bend your limbs, and you probably looked a lot like the Pillsburry Doughboy. Well as an adult we don't ever want to go back there, so here are my key ways of layering to always keep you looking great.

1. Don't pack away your summer dress yet- transition silk dress into your Fall wardrobe and the base of an outfit, the light fabric keeps the look from being bulky when adding on the additional layers.

2. Invest in a couple of neutral coloured sweaters- treat the sweater like the canvas by choosing a simple colour (like nudes and grays), it makes it much simpler to add to the canvas. 

3. Scarfs are always a good idea- they can keep you warm without over heating you like a jacket, and it adds a cool touch to the outfit by introducing a print or pop of colour. 

4. Use a belt to give you a waist- sometimes no matter what you do you may look bulky so use a thin belt and tie it around your waist to give you a shape.

5. Never forget to play with accessories- by adding a bold leather bracelet and a cool pair of sunglasses it keeps the look from being boring, as well as adding in texture and colour into the outfit.

A Day in the Country with Cadillac








This past weekend the amazing people at Cadillac gave me a car to test drive, so I took the opportunity to take it up to Langdon Hall (one of my favorite country side spas and restaurant). The beautiful Cadillac SRX was sleek and classy with all of the modern driving functions desired. I especially loved the luxurious interior and the massive sun roof. Not to mention 4 built in USB ports situated in different compartments of the car to make it easy to charge all of your devices at once. I really enjoyed driving the SRX as it was a great first time cross over car for someone like me who is use to driving small cars her whole life.
