    My Run

    With a little help from my friend Lainey I have been able to make a pretty good estimate of the distance I've been running and it comes out to about .83 miles. I must admit I thought it was closer to a mile but I don't really mind. I can just loop in a a little more as I go and it's very scenic. Between my diet, this run, swimming two to four times a day and my employer paid gym membership I should be able to enhance and maintain my overall condition pretty well.
    Those are tennis courts on the left and two baseball diamonds.

    My Vegan Banana Brownie Recipe

    As some of you know, now that the kitchen is nearly done, I have started experimenting with cooking and recipes to try and improve my overall diet. Here is an example of a Brownie recipe I've put together that I believe is pretty good. Made without butter, white sugar, eggs, or dairy products these still taste great.

    1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk
    1 Banana
    1/2 cup Light brown sugar
    1/2 cup Dark light brown sugar
    1/3 cup Unsweetened Cocoa powder
    1/2 cup Whole Wheat flour
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    4 oz chopped Walnuts

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    Lightly grease with vegetable oil an 8 inch square pan.
    Blend Soy Milk and Banana
    In a large mixing bowl combine 1/3 cup cocoa, Sugars, 1/2 cup flour, salt, and baking powder.
    Mix in Soy/banana mix
    Spread batter into prepared pan.
    Gently place Walnuts over the top until well covered.
    Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes.
    (Cook until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.)
    Allow to cool for 15 minutes
    Remove from pan and enjoy
