Recipe for Banana Bread:
1 cup almond pulp
1 cup coconut
6-12 dates, not soaked
1/4 cup coconut oil
Mix the coconut and dates in the food processor. Then add the banana, coconut oil and almond pulp and process together to make a dough.
Spread on a teflex sheet about 1/4" thick then dehydrate overnight. Flip and dry the other side.
I went to the Christmas party at the nursing home where my 90 year old Mom is a resident. I passed on the finger foods but enjoyed the one-man band and Santa. Mom even got up out of her wheel chair and danced a couple of times.

Just a reminder of some advice I got not too long ago from Dr. John Fielder. You need to be squeaky clean in your habits, even when you are around people whose lifestyles are unhealthy else they will drain your energies. It's important to be very particular to ensure that this doesn't occur. This means not indulging in too many late nights, eating in restaurants, eating wrong foods, insufficient exercise in the fresh air and sunlight, insufficient rest, etc., and generally not taking time out for yourself. Worry is the icing on the cake. Your body and mind are telling you to stop it all and get back to sanity.
To health and happiness.
