im just sitting inside still in my pajamas (dont hate) watching tv with my family, my brother in law and sis are here with my nieces they are 2 year old twins, and theyll probably be here all night.. 

I am also snacking on the best zucchini bread ever.  I use to avoid zucchini bread because ew it had veggies in it and now i cant live without zucchini!

 

Zucchini bread

Adapted from Oh She Glows

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup oat flour (I grounded oatmeal)
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup sugar (I use raw sugar)
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 ener-g egg (or flax egg or regular egg)
  • 1 & 1/4 cup shredded zucchini, packed
  • 3 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup (or other liquid sweetener)
  • 1 & 1/4 cups non-dairy milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)

Preheat the oven to 375.  In 2 bowls mix the dry ingredients ( flour, baking powder and soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, raisins, walnuts) in one then the wet in the other ( your set egg, zucchini, lemon juice, syrup, milk) then mix all together well and either put in a large loaf pan or 2 small ones (times vary for which pans you use) 50-60 minutes for the 2 small ones I used.

Hii everyone, im sitting inside waiting for hurricane sandy too come.. it says its suppose to be pretty bad here but we will have to see i like storms so!  In this blog you’ll see how I try to live a healthy lifestyle and get love to learn new things daily about how I can better myself.. im always readings blogs on here like clean eating chelsey, oh she glows , the fitness dish , detoxinista, chocolate covered katie, daily garnish, peas and thank you, happy herbivore, and averiecooks just to name a few!  i’ll tell you about some fashion buys, stuff im going through in school (i promise i won’t post pictures of anything getting dissected) how I train for my runs that I have just started, what I eat for fuel for these workouts and ofcoarse gossip.. anyone other gossip girll 90210 or hart of dixie fans out there?! 😉

some random stuff about me:

my name is kaity, im 23 years old i am obsessed with peanutbutter..anything and everything about it.. i also LOVE hummus i don’t know how i went so many years avoiding it because it was made with beans. I don’t like soda or mayonnaise at all. I live on long island NY and love it, right in the middle hour away from nyc hour away from winery’s and the hamptons and 20 minutes in each direction from beaches its awesome but I still would rather be in more of a nature(y?) scene because I love hiking, rafting, skiing, and all that fun stuff!

(me whitewater rafting in PA this past august, it was amazing i wish i could do it everyday!)

Im off to make some zucchini bread with all the zucchini I have and want to use it up before the storm incase we lose electric so why have them just go bad (good excuse right lol) ill post the recipe soon!

Do you like thunderstorms?
