Pumpkin Banana Bread. This batch was (one) kid approved.
You can add vanilla protein (1-2 scoops mixed with wet ingredients) but the bread won't last as long.

1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp baking soda

A new study looks at #health#benefits of #walnuts
A new study suggests that walnuts may be a particularly #goodchoice . And this isn’t the first time researchers have come to this conclusion. A previous analysis by the same #researchers (including 365 study participants in 13 trials) found that #diets#enriched with walnuts led to lower total and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol when compared with other diets. Since then, more studies with far more study #participants and longer follow-up have been published.
This #latestanalysis combined data from 26 previous trials that included more than 1,000 people; compared with those on a #regulardiet , those consuming a walnut-enriched diet had:
lower total cholesterol (by about 7 mg/dL, representing a 3% greater reduction)
lower LDL cholesterol (by about 5.5 mg/dL, a 4% greater reduction)
lower triglycerides (by about 5.7 mg/dL, a 5.5% greater reduction)
lower apoprotein B (a protein linked to cardiovascular disease) by nearly 4 mg/dL
While these #improvements in blood lipids were rather small, larger improvements (for example, a 12 mg/dL drop in total #cholesterol ) were noted when the comparison diet was a typical US or western diet (that is, a diet high in red meats, high-fat #dairyfoods , and artificially sweetened foods).
A diet rich in high-fat foods such as nuts always raises the concern about the potential for weight gain, but fortunately those on the high-walnut diet did not gain weight.
Researchers analyzing past studies on the #healthbenefits of walnuts have given us reason to make them a regular part of our diets and, perhaps, to choose them over other nuts. Hopefully, this type of research will lead to better #foodchoices and #betterhealth .
