Hello there, I missed you guys! It's been an eventful few days. While Barbara spent the weekend working on organizing an upcoming Z-Health workshop for the new year, I was away at a 2 day music festival in Hamilton. I'm going to keep my rambunctious stories to a minimum though, because I have so much more to share with you. To sum up the weekend, it involved tons of great bands, probably too much drinking... and nachos 2 nights in a row. I know! I just can't lie to you guys though. At least they were gluten free! (they also came with a sombrero rental)

Next order of business. I'm teaching a MovNat 1-Day Fundamentals Workshop in Toronto this October 13th!If you have been interested in learning more about MovNat and experiencing it for yourself, then you ought to sign up. It's only about 3 weeks away, so check it now! You can find all the details about it here, or learn more about MovNat and our coaches on our NEW LFC WEBSITE!That's right, it's finally up. Anyone who wants information about where we coach or what we offer, can check us out at legendaryfitcanada.com.

Okay, I'm going to stop promoting myself now and let you digest all that. Speaking of digestion, onto the recipe. This loaf has the most comforting consistency and tastes pleasantly sweet, though it doesn't have any added sweetener in it. It's perfect either warm or cold, and goes great for breakfast, or makes a nice lite dessert. If your palate is not yet accustomed to enjoying baked goods without extra sugar, then you can always add a little honey or maple syrup to the batter, but we encourage you to try it as is and enjoy all the subtle flavors this recipe has to offer.
