Hi bunnies!

Some of you may have noticed my blog went down a few times last week. I had some technical difficulties, but thanks to Go Daddy, it’s all good now! The response to my last post about bridesmaid dress sizing was overwhelming! It’s absolutely crazy to see how many of us have been through the same situation with clothing sizes or that darn number on the scale. I loved reading all of your comments, and I’m sure that other readers appreciated them as well! You guys are truly empowering! I was also so excited to hear from some of you that had never commented on my blog before. It really showed me how powerful that post was and how much you appreciated it. Sometimes it’s hard to talk about weight and sizes because it’s often uncomfortable and embarrassing, but your support and responses make me happy to share my ups and downs! Just one comment from someone who says “thank you” or “I can relate” makes it all worth it! Knowing that I can help others with my blog is an indescribable feeling. I love you all very much!

Motivation Monday: “Take it day by day. Results don’t come overnight. Change doesn’t happen immediately. Keep working towards your goals.”

Over the weekend I found another “before” photo. Sometimes I really dislike seeing these photos, but when I see them next to my “after” I can’t help but be extremely proud of myself and how far I have come. I hope that these photos can help to motivate and inspire you to continue on your journey and never give up!
Before & After Weight Loss I have a super simple healthy snack for you guys. I love having Banana Roll-Ups for breakfast with some Greek yogurt, as a pre workout snack to fuel me through my barre classes or runs, or as a post workout snack. They’re easy to make and totally hit the spot!

Banana Roll-Ups
Banana Roll-Ups
Serves 1

2 soft taco size whole corn tortillas
1 banana
1 Tbs almond butter, peanut butter, or natural nut butter of your choice.
sprinkle of cinnamon to taste

Cover the tortillas with a damp piece of paper towel and heat in the microwave for 15 seconds. Spread the tortillas with nut butter. Cut banana in half and place on the tortillas. Sprinkle with cinnamon, and roll the tortillas tightly around the banana. Slice into half inch pieces like sushi, and enjoy!

Banana Roll-Ups
The Rabbit Food Pyramid Breakdown
Produce: banana
Whole Grain: whole corn tortillas
Protein: complete the meal with a side of Greek Yogurt or a cup of milk!
Plant Based Fat: nut butter

Why I like whole corn tortillas vs. whole wheat tortillas: First things first, in the rabbit food world, corn is a whole grain! There are less calories and carbohydrates for two soft taco sized corn tortillas than in 1 whole wheat tortilla. This way you can have more!

Stay tuned for an delish giveaway this week! xo

  1. Don’t nut butters have protein?

    These are so cute! I don’t generally like the taste and texture of bananas, so I only eat them before (and during!) a race, but I think this could be a great way to get a little more nutrients before racing! I’m always looking for NATURAL ways to fuel. Thanks!

    • Hi Sarah! Yes nut butters do have protein, but not enough for it to be a complete balanced meal :)

  2. thanks for the reminder that it’s a day by day process. i’ve just finished my 2nd week of clean eating and while i feel so much better physically i was sad this morning that the scale had barely nudged from my weigh in last week. it can be overwhelming when i know i have a lot to lose…so it is important to take those daily steps…

    • Hi Jessica! c=Congrats on your 2nd week of clean eating! That’s outstanding and something to be so proud of! I hit a plateau at one point where I was eating healthy and exercising and the scale wouldn’t budge. Sometimes it’s a good idea to take measurements, because even if you don’t see a change on the scale, you’re body composition is most likely changing :) xo

      • I find it is also really important to take measurements on how I FEEL. It’s not only about the physical, we should be doing it in order to make us feel healthy and more energetic too! :)

  5. Hey I love your blog! It’s inspired me to go vegan and start exercising and I’ve lost 13 lbs so far!! Also I love the “motivation monday” and at my school gym there is a sign on the door that inspires me and I thought you might like it! It reads: ‘If it doesn’t challenge you it won’t change you!’

    thanks and keep up the good work!!

  9. i, too often, fall off the band wagon when it comes to being healthy. seeing your before and after pictures have re-inspired me. and those banana wraps are going to become my best friend because they look amazing. even my southern “man of men” husband thinks they sound amazing. by the way, you were beautiful in your before picture and you are beautiful in your current picture!

  11. Not to dismiss the importance of eating healthy, because that is important no matter what your size, but you’re completely gorgeous in both photos.

    Love the banana roll up idea though – I often just have a plain banana and an english muffin at work, but I’m totally switching it up with this next week!
