DAY 15: Monday, September 28th

DAY 15 AGENDA:

1. Let's kick off our third and LAST week of the 21 day challenge by another FORAGE
You could do a real primitive forage and go out into your surroundings to find mushrooms, apples, pumpkins, berries {depending on the season}, etc. 

You could also forage by finding a new shopping market with ingredients to make primal foods or even go out to a different restaurant to eat a primal meal. Remember, politely ask for substitutions as deemed necessary to create a primal meal!

2. Lastly, perform a moderate aerobic exercise of your choice, 30-60 minutes long and 50-70% of your maximum heart rate.

Dessert- dark chocolate chip banana muffins
I made these tonight and they tasted just like my mother's recipe I grew up on...only HEALTHY :)

Ingredients:
  • 2 mashed ripe bananas (brown spotted)
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 Tbs honey (raw, dark)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (REAL extract)
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (I chopped up an 85% dark chocolate bar)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine wet ingredients and mix well. Mix dry ingredients together and then slowly add to wet ingredients while stirring. Grease muffin pans (small) with coconut oil or butter. Place a tablespoon into baking dish or line them up on a baking sheet lines with parchment paper (they will hold form). Bake for about 15 min or until firm and starting to brown. Enjoy!
