We Got Chicks + A Sweet Tooth Recipe that doesn't contain sugar!

Well.....like I mentioned last week, we got chicks!!! 

I took Zander to the feed store with me, and we got to pick out all 8 of our chicks!

Here's a glimpse of them in their new home, the DIY brooder that we made.  We got 7 hens for egg laying, and one meat chicken (fyi that means after we raise it, we will kill it) sad for some, but just realize, we are helping that chick fulfill it's destiny!

They will stay in this brooder for about a month under a heat lamp, then we will move them outside to their new coop. (that we will build!)

After getting them all settled in to their home, we introduced the chicks to Zander! He gently petted them, but also kept one eye on them. He was not sure about these little guys!

 On a different note, since giving up sugar over 2 months ago, honestly I haven't been craving a lot of sweets much. Today however, it was mid-afternoon, and I got the craving for something sweet. So, in the midst of Pinteresting homemade rolls for dinner, I came across a banana bread recipe, and decided I had to make that! 

So I changed up a couple of things to fit me, and made some banana bread that turned out to be super yummy for me, and a perfect afternoon snack. Plus, I made it grain-free which is great since we still aren't giving Zander any grains, so he got to have his first taste of bread today!

Now I will be honest, the texture of this bread is not like your normal bread. It's a little banana-y which can come off a little too moist to some people...aka my husband. But, when you have given up sugar or if you are used to baking with bananas, then you get used to this, and honestly it tasted great!
