Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome and banana soft serve.

Yep. I went to the sports medicine doctor and finally figured out what's going on in my knees. I suspected patellofemoral pain syndrome a while back after reading about Caitlin's experience with it but wanted to make absolutely sure.

Treatment starts soon with physical therapy and they promised that they'd get me running again! Seriously, you have no idea how happy those words made me. I may not run fast but I sure do love running! I'm also getting custom orthotics for my feet to help with the plantar fasciitis pain. Things are looking up.

We won't mention how old this all makes me feel.

We are super behind in posts due to going back to work, school and a regular schedule. This drives me nuts.


I have been making tons of guacamole lately. I am obsessed. I added a 2 lb box of avocados to our CSA list for next Saturday.


And I bought some corn and black bean salsa from our local farmer's market. This is the BEST salsa I've ever had. We're planning on buying more from him later today.


I made steak tacos to go with the guacamole and salsa. I used a packet of Trader Joe's taco seasoning to give the steak some flavor.


Yes, I am holding the plate up in my kitchen....


Seriously delicious. I used an organic onion and bell pepper to give it a little bit of veggie power. Next time I might try an all veggie taco.


Andy made us margaritas using Trader Joe's margarita mix. Have you tried it yet? It's got decent stats and is so tasty! I love that it's not super sweet.


Dessert was banana soft serve. To make this please read Gena's post on banana soft serve I'm telling you this was AMAZING. I added a little vanilla extract and some white chocolate wonderful pb to mine and LOVED IT! I can't believe this was made with frozen bananas!


Seriously Gena, you have changed my life. I love dessert but don't need all that dairy. This is such a perfect and cheap replacement!

Has a blogger recipe ever changed your life? Please share!

Glad to hear you're getting some resolution/treatment for your knee!! That guac looks totally delicious. Makes me want to get some mexican tonight. I would say Sarah's granola (suite apple pie) has changed my kitchen for good!

Your guacamole looks sooo good! Mine is always a total fail :( I think that I try to make it before my avacado is ripe enough. What do you put in yours? Hopefully your knee gets better sooner than later :)

Banana soft serve is the best dessert ever - I've made it a bunch of times and I'm still amazed every time it comes out of the food processor. My favorite is just to add a spoon of regular PB =)

I'm so glad you'll be back to running soon!

I have been blog stalking for so long, but fitnessista's breakfast cookies have been life changing!

P.S. I just got a really dirty word verification

You will love the foot inserts - I got them about three years ago - the pain in the back of my foot made it even hard to get out of bed in the morning - talk about feeling old!

Okay, I need to mail you some of my baja fresh salsa. I just made a huge batch and am canning it this weekend. Send me your address and I'll get it out to you next week!

One of my co-workers actually put some of my salsa in a coffee cup with a handful of chips to dip. He emailed me and said "if its wrong to drink your salsa out of a coffee cup, I don't want to be right!"

Happy Friday!

So glad that you know what's going on with your knee and will be getting some physical therapy. How awesome that they were able to promise you that you'd get back to running. That's awesome!! :)

I love making homemade guacamole!! And those tacos look muy bueno!! :)

Omg, I love banana soft serve. I need to make some tonight! I totally forgot I have some frozen bananas I need to use up! Glad you reminded me!!! :)

Lovely Mel- I always put in diced tomatoes, red onion, lime juice, garlic salt, cumin and chili powder!

I love making my own guacamole! Our recipes are pretty different but I'm sure equally tasty. :) I also have PFPS. My mom actually picked up some knee bands for me instead of the knee sleeves with adjustable straps I've been putting off (because of money, of course; I think I already told you this on Twitter, actually, sorry). Anyway, they seem to help. I'm starting to worry about my feet, too. Ruh-roh. My sister has plantar fasciitis, and PT and orthotics helped her a lot. Good luck!

I can relate to your knee issues as well as your love for guacamole. I could eat guac every day 5 times a day. Have you had Chipotle's version? I think it is one of my favorites.

I'm glad to hear you have a diagnosis and will be able to run again! I love banana soft serve..I usually add in some dark chocolate dreams.. heaven!

Hope your knee ends up getting better and you do to running again. I so need to go to a doctor for mine but am kind of scared. But then again, I had a running dream last night so maybe that's a sign? Or maybe it was just a crazy dream from too much beer last night?

I didn't know TJ's had margarita mix, I need to pay them a visit soon.

hope your knee gets better soon. i can imagine it's hard! the banana soft serve looks lovely - i love eating frozen bananas straight up with my fingers so i'm sure i'd love it all whipped up!

I don't usually follow any blogger's recipes...not to sound like a snot, but I don't even have enough time to make my own list of recipes to make!

HIP HIP HOORAY you can run again! I hope that puts you in a great mood each day! Do you run in the mornings?
