This Banana Bread is delicious, nutritious and will bring so many smiles to those around you. I am very sensitive to gluten so all my baking is gluten-free. However if you know you can consume gluten products feel free to use flour or regular oats. It will save you money, but for us sensitive bellies - it's worth spending a little extra on these ingredients.
FOR SERVING optional

Okay, so I am not really into the whole “dieting” thing as diets only leave us sad and fatter then when we started once the “diet” is over. So think of these as more tips for enjoying lots of nourishing foods.
Water! If you can only get one thing right, get this right.
55-65 per cent of your body weight is made up of water! Your brain consists of around 70 per cent of water, too. Crazy, huh! Yep, suddenly the need for adequate daily water intake seems to make a whole lot of sense…
Your weight in kg divided by 0.024 = how many millilitres of water your body requires each day.
So, if you were to weigh 60kg, an ideal daily water intake for you is 2,500mL or 2.5L
Stay away from multi-ingredient starches like doughnuts & bread or any sugary grains – this is kind on common sense?
Use fatty fish as a dinner protein. It’s meant to aid with sleep.
Eat single-ingredient carbohydrates like oats, sweet potatoes and rice as an energy...

Don’t let the industry fool you with their “secret” “unique” workouts, the benefits are free for anyone to reap.
WHAT IS THE RIGHT INTENSITY?
We have five main heart rate zones based on your individual heart rate.
The idea is to spend at least 12 minutes or more in the “EPOC Zone” which is to get your...
The Pilates Method was developed by Joseph Pilates, from Mönchengladbach, Germany. His father, a native of Greece, had been a prize-winning gymnast, while his German-born mother was a naturopath who believed in the principle of stimulating the body to heal itself without artificial drugs. As a child, he was very sick and suffered from asthma, rickets and rheumatic fever and it was in his striving to overcome these illnesses that led him to become interested in exercise.
Over the years Joseph studied Eastern and Western philosophies and other forms of exercise such as yoga, boxing, gymnastics and bodybuilding. In World War 1, Joseph was interned in a camp on the Isle of Man and it was at this time he developed a system of exercises using the resistance provided by the springs on iron hospital beds to rehabilitate soldiers within the hospital. This was the beginning of the Reformer and Cadillac machines which were intended to strengthen the human mind and body.
