The Cheapest Bananas Ever

by Jillian on February 19, 2013 · 5 comments

All plans of blogging went to crap yesterday when The Bachelor came on. I must say, this is the first season I actually watched it religiously and I now know why you crazy people are obsessed. I also cant believe how much I actually liked Tierra on the first episode. What a train wreck.

Since there is a special on tonight at 9pm where Sean talks behind the scenes, I figured I’d better get everything out of the way before then.

Anyway, let’s recap my morning.



That about says it.

After a few strength circuits, we moved on to tabata style intervals. We did the following 5 exercises 8 times with 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off:

  • ceiling jumps
  • mountain climbers
  • lateral speed steps
  • burpees
  • sprints

Phew! I was a little nauseous at the end.



Green protein smoothie, the usual. Though I added some frozen coconut milk, the real stuff, from the can! It made it extra creamy.


Work flew by today. We have a trade show coming up in March and I have a ton of work on my plate. One thing I don’t forget to do is eat! I keep snacks handy all day and I eat a big lunch. I know that I need this to keep me going, especially on high calorie burn mornings.

I tried out one of the new Artisana packets on a rice cracker today. I really like it – the goji and milk thistle in it made it kind of sweet without having any funky additives. The pack was only 58 calories, too.


I did manage to run out on break to Target though. I needed bananas, can’t run out of those. Note to self: bananas at Target are cheaper than Trader Joe’s. Holy crap; 14 cents per banana? Knocked my socks off.



I made a quick sauce and boiled the remainder of the black bean noodles I had in my cabinet and combined it with baby kale greens for a protein packed meal. Seriously, the stats on the black bean noodles are insane, 20g protein per serving! I kept the grated cheese shaker nearby to cover it every time I ate the top layer with cheese. I know I’m not the only one who does this!


Alright, I need to grab my seat on the couch and possibly make a little something sweet. I’ll probably be Bachelor tweeting if you’re on!

What. Totally going to Target today. I only have one banana left, and I’d rather pay .14 than .64 at WF or Sprouts!

My target charges .24 per banana which is stil cheap but .14 thats crazy low.

The cheapest bananas I’ve ever found are the ones I steal from my roommate. Free ninety nine.

That’s crazy awesome for bananas! I’d go crazy for that price.
Coconut from a can is about a bazillion times better than from a carton. I can’t ever go back after tasting that awesomeness.
