Hi friends! Thank you all for your “get-well-soons” on my last post. I think it’s working, I’m feeling better! 🙂
I’m so ready for spring! I hate this food rut that I’m in! I’ve been eating so much crap, it’s terrible. My body is craving fresh foods. Hurry up and get in season! It is sad that I eat so much crap in the late winter. It’s my worst time of year for everything. I would like to think of my blog as a “health food blog” but lately I’ve felt like that is a lie! :X
So, although I have been trying to eat better, I’ve really been digging pancakes lately.
My basic pancake recipe:
I use this pancake recipe on my “chill” days when I feel that it is okay to eat a not so nutritious meal for breakfast.
Remember breakfast = the day’s fuel!
1 cup flour, sifted (I use half white, half whole wheat)
1 tablespoon vegan sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup nondairy milk
1 egg replacer, prepared
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
You know what to do.
This mix can be used for just about any type of pancake: blueberry, strawberry, chocolate chip, you name it.
Just add in whatever you like!
But speaking of a nutritious breakfast…
Vega’s Shake & Go Tropical Smoothie
Literally, you mix it with water, shake & go.
I really like how simple this was! You just add it to 1/2 to 1 cup of water, that’s it! The taste was actually pretty impressive. Not too chalky at all! Finally! I didn’t feel like I was forced to chug down a nasty chalky vitamin drink, I could totally taste the pineapple.
Would I buy it? Maybe for a treat. I think these run about $2-3 at Whole Foods, I don’t think I would pay that much for this. But I guess once you think about it, $3 can’t really but you a very nutritious meal anywhere else.
Check out all of that iron, 30% in that little drink! Not to mention 11 grams of protein. I think I might start buying Vega products online once I start running this summer.
Have you tried any Vega products?
