To prepare the banana nut bread recipe paula deen, I start off by throwing a few cups of washed berries into a bowl. Next, I add a small handful of chopped walnuts. I keep my walnuts in the fridge or freezer so that their omega 3 quality does not diminish over time. Next I'll add some hemp seeds which are an amazing source of protein. In one tablespoon you will get about 8g of protein. That is huge! So if anyone throws that good ol' question at you: "Where do you get your protein from?" if you are vegan or vegetarian, just tell them that you eat hemp seeds. Hemp seeds are also a great source of omega 3 fatty acids. Sprinkle 1-2 tablespoons of hemp seeds on top, or however much you want banana nut bread recipe paula deen. Next I add some sunflower seeds. I usually soak them to bring out the living quality of them and reduce the enzyme inhibitors, but if you forgot to soak them ahead of time then that's alright. Throw on a couple of tablespoons of sunflower seeds. banana nut bread recipe paula deen Ground flax seeds are a must. They are a great source of fiber, lignans, and again, omega 3 fatty acids. You can buy them pre-ground but to get the best quality seeds, just grind them yourself in any coffee grinder. You can also add a little flax seed oil to your breakfast cereal. Again, it's a great source of omega 3. Good fats are essential to our cardiovascular system and to our brain health. And now for the secret ingredient banana nut bread recipe paula deen: shredded coconut.
Coconut is another amazing source of healthy fats. The medium chain triglycerides are amazing for fat burning and endurance for sports. Coconuts have anti-bacterial properties as well. They will also help to sustain your hunger a little longer. I recommend using rice milk or nut milk on your banana nut bread recipe. You can make your own nut milk in the vita-mix no problem using some soaked nuts, water, and a sweetener. Don't worry about draining little chunks; just pour it right on the cereal! Lately we've been using banana milk. We just throw a banana in the blender along with some water and a drop of almond extract. It makes tasty "milk". Just think outside of the box and you'll come up with many, many different milks that you can use. Don't even get me started on cow's milk. Just please don't even bring it into the house! Now, you may get full pretty fast because this cereal is very filling.
But the really great thing about this cereal is that you can put it in the fridge and eat it later because it's not going to get soggy. You don't have to be a raw foodist to enjoy this amazing cereal. It is full of high quality nutrition and there is no nonsense that you don't want to put into your body like every single cereal out there on store shelves. We've got berries, walnuts, coconut, hemp seeds, flax seeds and oil, sunflower seeds, and some nutritious banana milk on our cereal. Mix and match whatever you want! One thing is for sure. If you want to lose weight or just simply feel great and maximize the energy that you are experiencing on a daily basis, raw and living foods are going to revolutionize your life, so give this cereal a try. You'll be dumping that old cereal in the garbage straight after! click here to see full banana nut bread recipe paula deen

Most people would say it’s a crime to modify a classic Porsche 356 coupe, but what do you do when you have one so full of rust that you can’t restore to its original form? Well, if your name is Chuch Olenyk, then you start transforming it into a Speedster.
Using only original Porsche parts, including from 911 and 912 models, Olenyk converted his rusty 356A into a 356A Speedster “Outlaw” in his home garage, all by himself over a period of seven years.
The car is nicknamed the “Outlaw” because it uses parts that weren’t available at the time it was originally built – you know, from the future.
The result is spectacular to say the least: the car looks more aggressive with its Speedster windshield and lower ride height. And it drives and sounds pretty good too, as Jay Leno found out towards the end of the video.

There are reports on the web that bestow the future Bentley SUV with an electric motor to help its large gas-guzzling engine provide swifter yet more efficient progress.
According to UK magazine Autoexpress, the VW-owned manufacturer has already confirmed that it is indeed the case, adding that a plug-in hybrid variant of the new utility vehicle could hit the market in 2017; precisely one year after the regular one, previewed by the EXP 9 Concept, makes its debut.
It goes on to predict that it won’t be the sole Bentley hybrid, and that it is, in fact, a sign of things to come. From what we understand, the entire range bar the Mulsanne will follow suite.
The tech used would be similar to that used by another of the group’s luxury brands, Porsche, in the Panamera and Cayenne hybrid models.
This rumor seems very likely, but we won’t know for sure until the SUV makes its debut sometime next year, before going on sale one year later. Hopefully, they can at least get the design right this time…

The UK’s motor manufacturing industry is on track to build more cars than neighboring France for the first time since 1966.
Rising sales of UK-made cars, both domestically and in key export markets, are expected to drive manufacturing to a new record level, which would mean France would be relegated from third to fourth place in Europe’s car production rankings, behind Germany, Spain and Great Britain.
Industry bosses estimate 2013 UK car production to reach 1.55 million cars, up from 1.47 million in 2012 and 1.35 million in 2011. At the same time, France’s car production is expected to fall to around 1.54 million cars for 2013, down from 1.66 million in 2012 and 1.88 million in 2011.
“We’re currently neck and neck with France but Britain’s car production is on an upward trend. France’s is on a downward trend. We’re about to cross. It could well be that the new figures will show that 2013 is the year in which we overtake them,” a spokesman for Britain’s Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
Auto industry chiefs forecast UK car production to continue its accelerated growth towards 2 million within three years, as a consequence of the investments made to increase production in the country.
2013 production growth was boosted by mainstream British-brands such as Jaguar, Land Rover, Mini and Vauxhall as well as super-luxury carmakers like Rolls-Royce and Bentley. Japanese carmakers including Nissan, Toyota and Honda also had a major contribution to production growth through their UK factories.
As for France, the fall in production is due to problems with the Euro, overcapacity, a stagnating domestic market and a lack of business confidence under the current government.

As the newest arrival and first sensibly priced (affordable might be kind of a stretch) rear-wheel driven Alfa Romeo since, well, the days of the Spider in the 1990s, the new mid-engine 4C has attracted some well-deserved attention from the press and gearheads alike, but does it make the cut against the competition?
That's what Autocar magazine's Steve Sutcliffe set to find out, at least partially, and by that, we mean on a twisty track.
Taking into consideration its mechanical layout and entry price in the UK at £45,000 (equal to $73,900 / €54,600), the 237hp Alfa 4C's direct competitor is a no brainer: the £41,616 ($68,400 / €50,500) Porsche Cayman (you can see how Carscoops readers voted in a poll between the two models here).
Just to shuffle things up and make the video review a bit more intriguing, Sutcliffe also brought along the Toyota GT 86 (Scion FR-S in North America). While not a real challenger to the 4-cylinder Alfa, it does have an excellent fun-to-price ratio that's really hard to overlook.
Since you don’t like spoilers, we'll just let take a look at the video below and then by all means, head to the comments for your thoughts.

A recent Reddit post from forum member Brake_L8 elaborates on how it was possible to transplant a Nexus 7 Android tablet into the center dash of a BMW 3-Series E46. The photos provided prove it looks pretty good once done up and it apparently works really well too.
The author goes into more detail about how it uses custom software that is activated upon turning the ignition key, as well as the need to move the climate control unit to make room for the touchscreen.
It looks fairly easy to do, but make sure you know what you’re doing before you set out to dismantle your dashboard. If you’re not sure of how, explain your idea to somebody who is more handy (i.e. a friend or a professional audio installer) and pay them a menial amount to do it for you.
The problem with buying an older car, say from the early 2000s, is that while it may still be desirable today and still competent from an engineering standpoint, it will lack most of the connectivity features that are now commonplace.
Any car similar to the E46 is still a nice, modern car to own, however the same problem of nonexistent infotainment persists (not limited to BMW) and given the more unusual shapes of the center stack’s openings, a great solution is difficult to find – plopping a tablet in in this way is definitely one way to go!

Visitors of the Detroit Auto Show who can’t afford a real 2015 Ford Mustang won’t go home empty-handed. That’s because toy manufacturer Revell is giving away the first official 2015 Mustang model kit free of charge to those who visit Ford’s booth.
To commemorate 50 years of Mustang, Revell will host a “Make ’n Take” event at the Ford stand during the show. At the event, children of all ages (yes, you too) and enthusiasts will be able to build and take home their own free Auto Show Edition 2015 Ford Mustang model before the real pony car even hits the road.
“For nearly 50 years, kids of all ages have been configuring and building their own personal full-size and small-scale Mustangs, and now they can build a new dream car and take it home,” said Steve Ling, Ford car marketing manager.
Revell’s 2015 Ford Mustang model kit can be easily assembled in minutes.
“I am thrilled Revell has the opportunity to work with Ford this year and provide kids and enthusiasts a chance to make and then take our 2015 Ford Mustang models home with them,” said Lou Aguilera, Revell vice president and general manager.
Revell introduced its first scale model of the Ford Mustang in 1968 and has produced more than 3 million small-scale Mustangs ever since together with sister brand Monogram, in scales ranging from 1/64 to 1/12.
The Detroit Auto Show is open for the public from January 18 to January 26.
