Merry Veganuary and Happy New Rear??

December 31, 2017
Salad, vegan, veganism, veganuary, flatlay

January. It’s the month millions of gym memberships are born (and later abandoned), it’s the month many of us vow to go dry for 31 days, and it’s the month we all make promises to change our lives for the better. Well, in my usual dramatic fashion, I’ve taken it one step further this year. I’m already mocking myself for the horrifically hipster sentence I’m about to type,…

My 2017 Jigsaw: Mental Health & Marathons

December 28, 2017

“I realised I was far more determined than I ever thought possible.” As if I’d let 2017 slip by without writing something about this rollercoaster of a year. I mean, I know I’ve been really really crap at blogging recently, and that’s all about to change (don’t roll your eyes at me, I’m serious, I’ll get better) but I couldn’t end the year without writing a big ol’…

October 23, 2017

This recipe comes fresh from one of my spontaneous ‘F*@$ it! Chuck in whatever I have in the kitchen’ moments. I’ll be honest, the outcome of these moments aren’t always 100% edible (blueberries and instant coffee – what was I thinking?) But not this time. This time I somehow managed to create a delicious concoction with a flavour and texture that reminded me of a sweet scoop of…

Sweet Berry Smorridge

October 9, 2017

  When it comes to breakfast, I’ll choose the sweet option every time – unless I’m absolutely hanging out my arse in which case hit me up with the greasiest full english you’ve got – but recently, I’ve definitely been overdoing it on the sweet stuff. I’ve gotten into a really bad habit of swinging into Pret or Starbucks on my way to work to gore on jam…

An honest review of: STEALTH Real Fruit Energy Gels

Stealth Real Fruit Energy Gels Banana Review - HannahBanana blog - Runner - Marathon Training

First, for anyone out there thinking what are energy gels? Let’s get that bit out the way: Energy gels are little sachets of liquid that are usually made up of carbohydrates, sugar, electrolytes. sometimes protein and a lot of the time caffeine is thrown in there too, it all depends on the brand (which, by the way, there are sooooo many of). Typically they’re consumed by runners on…
