Chunky Monkey Vegan Banana Bread Recipe

Saturday, January 16, 2021

     I was browsing the Instagram explore feed when I stumbled upon a banana bread recipe. I love bananas and bread that's why I decided to click on the photo and check the recipe. To my surprise, it's not the regular banana bread that's perfect for afternoon tea or coffee. It's vegan! Have you tried this kind of food yet? According to healthline.com, Veganism is currently defined as a way of living that attempts to exclude all forms of animal exploitation and cruelty, be it from food, clothing, or any other purpose. 

     Therefore, the simplest explanation is that vegan food simply equates to plant-based. In order for you to cook vegan food, all the ingredients must be animal-free, and using plants like fruits, vegetables including nuts, seeds, whole grains, and beans to name a few is what all you need. This vegan banana bread is so easy to make and made up of five ingredients. It's filling because of the whole grains used instead of the usual bread flour. So without further ado, here's my version of Chunky Monkey Vegan Banana Bread Recipe, read more below.

     Going plant-based? I have good news for you! Did you know that using botanicals to improve one’s health is an age-old practice in many parts of the world, including the Philippines? Today, many consumers are going natural and are more conscious about the products they use.

     Not all-natural solutions in the market, however, are backed by science, producing sub-standard products that are ineffective and may be harmful to consumers. This is why for Filipino plant-based brand Sekaya, produced by Unilab’s natural products company Synnovate Pharma Corporation, the only way to create best-in-class natural products is through the convergence of nature and science. I love drinking tea and giddy to find out that SEKAYA banks on science to optimize the earth’s natural ingredients. This Filipino plant-based brand is “Prescribing Nature” by making the most out of tradition and science to produce safe, high-quality natural products. More information about the brand and its exciting product line below.

     In times where health is our number one priority, lifestyle modification is essential. According to nature.com, lifestyle modification involves altering long-term habits, typically of eating or physical activity, and maintaining the new behaviour for months or years. This can be used to treat a range of diseases, including obesity. I'm pretty sure that if there's one thing everyone would like to change or adjust, it is their eating habits especially the staples- rice and bread.

     Cutting on carbs but can’t drop that bread on your diet? If you follow me on Instagram, I’ve said in my previous post that we have a bakery before, and during those times, gluten-free and sugar-free bread has hefty price tags way, way back and the supply is limited. If you’re health-conscious, have diabetes and other medical conditions that require a Gluten-free diet or someone who swears by Keto, luck is on your side because Hearty Bread takes out all the guilt in indulging on your favorite go food. Join me in another healthy food trip as I share more information about Hearty Bread after the jump:)

Boost the Body’s Immunity Through Nutrition

Friday, April 17, 2020

     The 2019 novel coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has taken the world by surprise with its highly infectious nature and mortality rate. What’s most concerning is that while we know that COVID-19 is part of a large family of viruses that include Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV), there are many traits of this virus that we have yet to uncover, such as the dynamics of transmission. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it could take up to 18 months for the first COVID-19 vaccines to be made publicly available. Only an approved drug can treat or cure, or prevent the transmission of, COVID-19 and other diseases. In the absence of any vaccine to date, we are left with practical prevention measures, such as maintaining proper hygiene, wearing a mask when necessary, or maintaining social distancing. It may also be useful to keep our bodies strong, so that our immune systems function well. 

     After all, our immune system is one of the most effective forms of defense against viral infections. There are two categories of immune functions in everyone’s body – the innate immunity which prevents diseases from entering the body and adaptive immunity which eliminates or prevents the growth of pathogens, such as viruses and bacteria, in our body. However, increasing the body’s immunity is not as straightforward as it sounds. There remains much about the immune system that researchers are still working to understand, but what we do know is the tangible connection between the immune system and nutrition.

UNIQLO Sport Utility Wear Collection Launch

Saturday, January 25, 2020

     In my recent post, I shared my intentions this 2020 and it focuses on my health and overall well-being. It has been six months since I started eating clean and going to the gym for my Yoga and Pilates classes. I struggled in the first three months, almost gave up but I'm serious about changing unhealthy habits for a healthy lifestyle. What keeps me going? The support from my husband, family, and friends and my workout essentials like a mat, water bottle, and gym clothes.

     Speaking of clothes, wearing proper exercise attire or outfit motivates you to keep going and move without limits. It's an investment that you'll be wearing four to five times a week and will be a part of your wardrobe. Nowadays, sportswear is your best friend if you love to wear comfortable clothes. It can be your outfit going to school, office, or casual and social occasions. Welcome the Athleisure trend and UNIQLO has launched its Sport Utility Wear collection, a lineup that introduces a new type of clothing that can smoothly transition from sports to casual wear, seamlessly integrating sportswear features into everyday apparel.
