Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie


Three ingredients . So easy and so delish. And the cherry on top?! You can satisfy that sweet tooth with it being good for you too.

Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie

3 ripe Bananas

3c old fashion oats

1/2cup chocolate chips (sugar free or 80% dark chocolate)

Smash bananas. Add oats. Should be cookie dough consistency. Add chocolate . Scoop onto sheet and flatten. These cookies do not change shape so they can be close together on the trays.

Bake 350F 12-15 minutes

This recipe , you don’t even have to measure. Eyeballing it is easy (and quicker)! Just make sure there’s enough oats. If it’s too “wet” the texture is more banana-y and you will miss that chewiness the oats bring. But no matter what you do with this recipe , they are still yummy!

Green and Healthy

1hab·it

noun \ˈha-bət\

: a usual way of behaving : something that a person does often in a regular and repeated way

“We are what we repeatedly do,” Aristotle proclaimed. “Could the young but realize how soon they will become mere walking bundles of habits, they would give more heed to their conduct while in the plastic state,” William James wrote. But how, exactly, do we rewire our habits once they have congealed into daily routines? We already know that it takes more than “willpower.”

Food Matters

I watched a documentary on food today. It was called “Food Matters”.

Let thy food be thy medicine,

and thy medicine be thy food.

-Hippocrates

They started off by saying how modern doctors receive little, if any, nutrional training. And their motto is “a pill for every ill” – and thats the way they want to keep it (for obvious reasons; they dont want a preventative course of action, meaning less money- they just want a temporary fix.)

“Good health makes a lot of sense, but it doesn’t make a lot of dollars.”

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

The documentary talks about how old the food actually is that is sitting in the supermarkets. After travelling 1,500-2,000 miles, they are at least 5 days old; and we are getting (if we are lucky) 40% of the leftover nutrients.

They also got into the facts about

  • raw foods vs cooked foods.
  • vitamins and their quantities
  • doctors and their (lack of) nutritional knowledge
  • healing powers of the body
  • depression and how to treat it
  • cancer & cardiovascular heart disease

I love Charlotte Gerson. She is interviewed throughout this documentary and she must be at least 80 years old.  She is hilarious! And so passionate and knowledgeable.

This documentary makes me want to go to the local farmers market, pick out fresh fruits and vegetables, and make my body happy!
