Raspberry Green Tea Banana Bread

Raspberry Green Tea Banana Bread

Let me level with you: I have a shopping problem. Well, not really a problem, maybe more like a pattern. I read about something cool then I immediately start doing research on this cool then. THEN, I buy the thing if the research pans out even a little. (Research consists 99% of Amazon review-reading.) This pattern is how I came to be the owner of a 2 lb bag of matcha powder after reading that it is good for your skin. It’s bitter AF and tastes like sad grass, and I’ve been trying to use it up for three years.

Feel Better Broth

Boy, the mid-winter germs are out in full force! Even though it has been like 80 degrees almost every day this month, cold and sniffle season is heating up all the same. Almost everybody I know, from family to work, has gotten some kind of illness in the past few weeks. It finally hit me this week. I went to a ladies basketball game (Go Ladyhorns!) on Monday night and screamed my heart out (especially for the dancing dogs at halftime). When I woke up on Tuesday my throat was killing me. I chaulked it up to yelling, but by Wednesday night I was still in so much pain that I had to listen to my body. Poor body was sick. And when I’m sick, I go for my tried and true “feel better broth.” Somewhere between a tincture and a soup, this elixir soothes my throat and helps me rest so my body can recover.
