Caramelized Bananas

I can’t believe I’ve made it this far in life without making caramelized bananas before. Don’t let yourself fall into a similar trap. Make them once, and you will soon find yourself stuffing and topping them on everything. Porridge. Crepes. Steak….

All it takes is three ingredients–> Coconut oil. Brown sugar. Bananas.

Just melt a bit of coconut oil in a pan. Stir in a spoon or two of brown sugar and let it get all melty. Then add in a sliced banana, and heat it until it looks kinda caramel-ly, but not too mushy. Add bananas to the food of your choice. Lick the pan. Immediately drink ice water to ward off tongue burns. (It’s impossible to wait.)

In this instance, I made a little porridge with almond milk, mixed in some chia seeds and coconut flakes, and poured the bananas on top. Then I went back to bed and ate. Then I got up, and snowshoed all the way up Hollyburn Peak at Cypress. It’s not supposed to be that long of a trek, but when you’re trying to avoid the ‘paid’ trails and you get a bit off track and go for a few loops, sometimes you add an extra 2 hours onto your trip. But that’s all worth it once you see the views at the top (if you get a clear day…), and more importantly, when you get to slide all the way down…

In conclusion: good fuel for a long day on the mountain, or wherever your day may lead.

Production Lunches

One of the best things about working in television- getting fed. Not always, and not on every show, but for the most part- if you are working on set during production, it is unlikely you will ever go hungry. Usually this will take the form of catering/craft services, but there are times when you must […]

Quarry Rock & Honey’s

‘Family Day’ is supposed to be a holiday. But instead of sleeping in, I found myself setting my alarm for 3:30am. A new requirement for the first day of a much anticipated new job. However, as I’ve been quick to learn, the good thing about starting work before the birds wake up (besides zero traffic […]

Hotdogs and Baseball

All I know about baseball is that you are supposed to hit a ball with a bat and run around some bases. I wouldn’t say it’s a game I’m too familiar with. So after spending an entire day last weekend in the hot sun at the Khatsalano festival, it was actually quite nice to be able to […]
