WIAW-Carmelized Bananas!

Hi there! I almost forgot about today’s WIAW since we had President’s Day off and I kept thinking it was Monday all day yesterday! So technically, this post features Monday’s eats:)

Starting with Crockpot Oats, cashew butter, and the very last lonely slice (sadness) of my carmelized bananas. All I did was took 2 bananas and sliced them, rolled them in 1 T. sugar (I used coconut sugar but any kind works), heated a pan over medium heat, and cooked the slices for about 2 minutes each side. Just make sure they don’t burn- we tend to have enough of that in my house 😉


Then I filled up my Camelbak before going  to do barn chores and riding…


I also brought along  a homemade protein mini muffin (yum!) and a banana as snacks.


We stopped into such an amazing Mediterranean place for lunch since we were at the barn longer than we thought. I got the combo plate, which included dolmas, falafel, tabouli, hummus, and Greek Salad.


Before dinner, I snuck a few of these Kale Krunch chips. Their price tag is heavy, but I draw out my willpower and make them last for a week. Pretty impressive 😉


The before-mentioned dinner was chicken vegetable stir fry:



A few hours later, after making it through a mountain of AP History homework, I had these salted chocolate pumpkin seeds. I need to start making my own- so good! I spy a puppy in the background.


Product loving? Our fridge was practically down to peas and ketchup after skipping a shopping trip, so we went grocery shopping Monday. We got the staples (oatmeal, etc.), and I also picked up a few fun things like a few bars, kabocha squash, cashew butter, and coconut water powder. All for under $10, which was a nice surprise.


Also, don’t forget to enter my VitaTops giveaway– because who doesn’t like muffins?:)

Thank you to the awesome Jenn over at Peas and Crayons for hosting WIAW always and have a lovely day!

  1. Yum! Looks like you had a great day! Those salted chocolate pumpkin seeds look amazing I need to make/buy them!

  2. Those caramelized banana slices sound amazing; I should try that sometime! That Mediterranean food also looks delicious; I love all the food you mentioned:) I can’t believe you managed to make those kale chips last a week–they probably wouldn’t last two days in my house! I remember taking an AP U.S. History class my junior year of high school (I was home schooled, so I took it online), and it was a lot of fun, though tough at times!

    • It’s a ton of reading but I’m learning so much, so it all pays off:) And yes I had to ration those chips! I could easily eat a bag a day- they are so good! I’m asking for a dehydrator for my birthday (#foodbloggerproblems) haha. That way I can make my own raw ones:)

  3. The stirfry looks so good and I love Mediterranean food!

    • Thanks! Usually it’s a whatever-is-in-the-fridge kind of dinner, but I love Bragg’s, chicken breast or tempeh, broccili, cabbage, etc. And the occasional sweet potato. It sounds weird but it works so well:)

  14. That veggie stir-fry is making me drool!

  15. Aren’t caramlized bananas the best thing ever?! Your way of making them seems to produce much prettier bananas. I just throw mine in the oven– I should try them on the stove

  23. I’ve tried baking my own kale chips previously (drying them in the oven with a sprinkling of sea salt) but it is surely not as good as that bag you’ve got!

  24. I used to do caramelized bananas on my oats all the time. Just no time in the mornings anymore!

  25. Oooh carmelized bananas sound delicious! I would love to put some on my oatmeal or smoothie in the morning.
    And I love those kale chips. You made them last a week??? You have super will power my friend. I was snacking on a few today and looked down to find an empty bag 😦
    Sometimes they go on sale at Whole Foods though – almost every other month, you just have to look.

  26. Your lunch looks amazing! I absolutely ADORE falafel :).

  27. I’ve always wanted a camelback. But I have a water bottle that isn’t broken yet. That stir fry is amazing. Broccoli is the best!
