I can almost taste you summer.
Last night I spent a solid 90 mins plus in the kitchen getting after some serious food prep. I would say my favorite item that came out of it was hands down my paleofied version of banana prune muffins.
You heard me right, prunes.
I'm a fan of prunes, and raisins, and dates.
Pretty much all food. Now if you're a prune hater, that's fine, but let me encourage you to actually try them if you haven't within the past few years. I feel like they get a bad rep for absolutely not reason at all.
Banana Prune Muffins
-1/2 cup coconut oil
- 2 ripe bananas
-1.5 cups of almond flour/meal
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1 tsp baking soda
-1 cup chopped pitted prunes
Let's be honest, I'm no chef. I literally just mashed/mixed all that stuff together in no particular order, poured into muffin liners, baked at 350 for 15-20 mins, and gobbled them up. Delicious, moist, healthy.
I gotta be real; I'm not an upper body girl. I've been working on it, and I'm starting to take some pride in the little bit of tone I've gained. I don't have an entire arms circuit that I follow; I tend to mix push-ups, tricep dips etc., into the interval-type workouts that you've seen me do.

My single favorite arm/shoulder/back/core workout? Plank rows.
"Kait that's cheating you only like it because it incorporates ab work too."
I typically hit plank rows with 10 lb dumbbells, 15 if I'm feeling sassy. Start out with a weight you feel comfortable with - even 5 lbs works. 8-10 reps each arm, rest, repeat. I normally go through it two to three times.
Get it girl/dude.
Cheers to some sweaty rows, followed by some prune muffins-
