Dailystills: November

October flew by, so it's time to share the Dailystills list for November! I'm really looking forward to doing this list, are you?

Are you joining us in November? Let us know on Instagram :) My IG account: @mandy_fisher and Shannon: @shanimal_. You're allowed to save this photo and share it on Instagram too, enjoy!

Not sure how Dailystills works? Let me explain..

 Grab your camera or phone.
 Look at the monthly list to find the prompt for the day. The number corresponds to the date of the month.
 Take a photo using the prompt as inspiration. So for October the prompt for day 1 is ‘Dressed up'. So take a photo when you were dressed up for Hallowee, a party or maybe dressed up for work, you name it!
 Now you’ve taken a picture, it’s time to share it on Instagram. Use the hashtag #dailystills so we can all see and like it! Note: There are also people who share their Dailystills on Facebook, Twitter or their blog. So no worries when you don't use Instagram, just share them wherever you like :)

Sportswear: My fave's from Nike's spring 2015 collection

On October 22nd, Nike unveiled their spring 2015 woman collection and I fell in love. You can check out the full collection here, but I wanted to share my two favorite items with you here.

Nike Flyknit Lunar 3
The Nike Flyknit Lunar 3 marries a Flyknit upper with a soft and responsive Lunarlon midsole to give runners an ultra-light plush and responsive ride. The evolved upper design features Flyknit with a tighter knit structure in the heel for support and a looser knit structure in the forefoot for increased breathability, stretch and support. The midsole features reformatted Lunarlon cushioning that delivers a lighter, more responsive plush ride. The Nike Flyknit Lunar 3 will be available beginning Feb. 12, 2015 in six different colors for women.

Isn't it a beauty! This is sooo on my wishlist :)

Nike Epic Lux Printed Tight 
The Nike Epic Lux Printed Tight offers solutions specific to the needs of runners. It features a wide elastic waistband and internal drawcord, ensuring that she can focus on mile two of her half marathon, not the fit of her tights. A zippered back pocket serves to house personal items such as keys, and reflective elements provide enhanced visibility for runs in low-light conditions. The tight’s soft Dri-FIT fabric works to pull sweat away from the skin to help keep her dry and comfortable, while ventilation is built into key sweat zones to provide cooling. The Nike Epic Lux Printed Tight will be available beginning Jan. 8, 2015.

Oh my, I need to save my pennies..

Recipe: Pumpkin banana pancakes

You might be familiar with my Banana and egg pancakes, or my Green and Clean pancakes. This time I made another variation on them. Specially for fall, I've made Pumpkin banana pancakes. They don't only taste delicious, they also look pretty cool in orange!

So, it's time to share another delicious and healthy option for a lovely pile of pancakes, this is what you need for two servings:
  • 1/2 small pumpkin
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 4 eggs
  • Pumpkin spice or just cinnamon
  • Greek yogurt or quark (non-fat)\
  • Coconut oil
  • Maple syrup
  • Fruit and nuts for topping
What you do:
  1. Cut the pumpkin in several smaller pieces, remove the seeds and pulp and boil it for about 10 minutes
  2. When it's soft, take it out of the water and remove the skin, it's pretty easy to peal it off when the pumpkin is cooked.
  3. Chop the pumpkin in smaller pieces and put it in a food processor or blender, add the bananas, eggs and cinnamon or pumpkin spices and blend it to a smooth mixture
  4. Put a tablespoon of coconut oil in a baking pan and make 4 little pancakes at the time. Be careful when you turn them! Bake them until they're brown and remove them from the pan. Continue doing this until you're out of batter.
  5. Pile the pancakes with a little bit of Greek yogurt or quark between them. 
  6. Top it off with quark, maple syrup and fruit and nuts you like.
If you want to try out these pancakes yourself, make sure you do it soon, now that the pumpkins are cheap! It's a perfect breakfast for fall. I hope you'll enjoy them as much as we did!
