Well, that’s not a fair statement. The bananas aren’t squeezed, they’re smoothed. The smoothie is one of the most simple, nutritious, and delicious ways to get have a quick meal. It’s like having a milkshake, but without all the fat and calories. After my daily morning workout (daily is used loosely here), I always make myself a peanut butter and banana smoothie. Not only is it absolutely delicious, but it’s really healthy too! Keep reading for the full recipe!
Veggie burgers are my new favorite junk foods now that I’m on a plant-based diet. Falafel are one of my go-to snacks now, too. If you think I’m speaking a foreign language, I kind of am, but they’re nothing weird. They’re just chickpeas that are ground, formed into balls, and fried. Sounds good? It is.

The contestant who fell below the red line goes straight home–no challenge, no voting! The cupcake challenge involved contestants getting their hands on a Biggest Loser golden ticket that gives them a one pound advantage.

Gone are the rose-colored glasses from these contestants’ faces. All it took was one elimination to wreak complete havoc at the Ranch. Within the first five minutes two contestants were already talking about wanting to go home. How anyone can throw away an opportunity of a lifetime is beyond me!
