Yeah so my banana bread was a big hit yesterday, obviously.
But – and this is kinda hilarious – someone asked me what I sweetened it with, and I was like, “sugar?”
She says, “oh, hahaha! We thought you were healthy!”
Really? “Healthy people” (and they wouldn’t call me that if they knew how much beer I drink) can’t make banana bread? With sugar?
So I Googled “natural alternatives to sugar” and came up with:
brown rice syrup
Meh. I guess it could work. I’d love to experiment if I had the time. But when it comes right down to it, as long as you don’t eat the whole loaf (and you’re not a diabetic or prone to sugar migraines or whatever), I really don’t see the point.
And as for Splenda, don’t even start with me. I am pretty sure that garbage gives you cancer.
Anyhoo. I thought it would make a good discussion topic, but I pretty much know what you all are going to say: real sugar wins.
ULS! ULS! ULS!
Last night, I ran three miles in the wind.
Needless to say, it was not the miraculous run I had the other day, but it’ll do.
I’d love to blame the wind, but it happened to be blowing against me on the way back, when I actually picked up the pace a little. So whatever. I’m over it.
In other news, one more day one more day one more day one more day…
