In general, I eat 3 fruits on most days of the week. Normally, for ease of carrying to class and a little longer shelf life, I eat a lot of apples and bananas. As my third fruit each day, I normally choose fresh berries, pineapple, or melon to add some variety. Since I only like to go grocery shopping once a week, I buy the greenest bananas I can find. That way, I have better odds of eating them before they go bad. But I have to admit that part of me gets really excited when exactly 3 bananas go bad before I am able to eat them, because my banana bread recipe requires exactly 3 almost rotten bananas!
Both this week and last week, I ended up with 3 brown spotted bananas on my kitchen counter. (Why my summer internship is interfering with my fruit intake might need to be explored in a future blog…) I actually decided to make them in to muffins this time instead of bread so I could eat one either as part of a quick grab-and-go breakfast or for a yummy mid-morning snack. The chocolate chips I had laying around also proved a fun little addition.
Next time you find yourself in the same situation, just do an internet search to find a recipe that suits your taste and combines some baking staples you might already have in your cupboard! Enjoy!!
