Happy Sunday! I hope you’ll had an amazing weekend 🙂
I’ve been getting lots of questions lately about how I got started with my Instagram and Blog, so I decided to finally share with you how everything started and my life changing story with you’ll 🙂
THE OLD SHEINA
Growing up I was always a tall “skinny” girl. I started playing volleyball when I was 8-years old and my life was always about volleyball practices, laps around the gym, workouts, agility trainings, and tournaments. LOVED every second of it!
Even though I was an athlete for almost my entire life, my eating habits were not the best. Cookies, soda, candy and fried foods were big part of my daily eating routine. The years went by and in 2009 I received a full-schorlaship to come play college volleyball in a Junior College in Liberal, KS. When I first arrived in the United States I was overwhelmed by all the food options, and how much cheaper they were compared to Brazil. Even practicing 5 days a week for approximatly 3 hours a day, by end of November I had gained a little over 10 LBS (can’t remember for sure).
HAPPY WEDNESDAY! If you know me well enough, you know how much I LOVE going grocery shopping. I always look forward to go to the grocery store, and I like to take my sweet time when buying my groceries. If I need to hurry up at the store, I don’t even go! And fun fact, […]
Happy Tuesday!!!! As most of you know, I’m one of the Brand Ambassador for the local business CityShape Fitness, and I love seeing what it is doing for our community. CityShape has given me the opportunity to get know different studios around KC, to try new workouts (I even did my very first hot yoga class), and most importantly, […]
Happy Friday everyone! Hope you guys are having a great year so far. Can you believe it is already January 12th? Time is flying by, and February will be here before we know it! So, lets talk about fashion? I’ve partnered with the Legends Outlets (one of my favorite places to shop in KC), and received a […]
Happy Friday everyone! Hope you had a great (cold) week and have fun things planned out for the weekend. Life has been a little busy with school, work, getting ready to move to a new place, and everything else in between! But I can’t complain at all… Life is GREAT! Anyway, today I want to […]
Happy friday everyone! I know I know, it’s been a while… but life has been a little busy lately and I haven’t had time to blog as much. My house is under construction (which is driving me C R A Z Y), and my MBA classes are consuming almost all my free time. But better […]
How is your week going so far? I’m really excited for the Fall… My MBA classes started back yesterday and I still can’t believe how fast summer went by!
Anyway, lets talk about food? I love Banana Bread but this recipe specially is to die for! I used the Kodiak Cakes “PROTEIN PACKED – Cinnamon Oat” mix instead of regular wheat flour, and it definitely HIT THE SPOT! The banana bread turned out super moist and tasty!
Whisk the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt, and set aside.
In a different bowl, beat eggs, coconut oil, honey, greek yogurt and vanilla extract until well blended. Stir in the smashed bananas, Kodiak Cakes mix and chopped walnuts.
Pour batter into 9×5 inch greased loaf pan, sprinkle with some dark chocolate chips and some chopped walnuts. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until it passes the “toothpick test”. Cool for 10 minutes, slice and ENJOY with a cup of coffee!
Sheina’s tip: I like putting my banana bread slices in the toaster and then topping it with PB. Simply THE BEST!!!
