Hands up who loves a pancake?
It's useful to know you can have your pancakes & stay on track with your health!
This is a firm family favourite & its just too good not to share it with you ready for pancake day.
For busy mornings, I batch ahead & store in the fridge for up to 3 days. They pop into the toaster for a quick re-heat!
Let me know how you get on & if you have a friend that loves a panckae please share this with them & spread the love.
Winter can mean a time full of indulgence. I find that if I can make healthy options a little easier to prep, or quicker to make, there is MUCH more chance I will get the right nutrients in & keep my skin & immune system up!
Smoothies can be a very fast way to get a boat load of nutrients in. What we put in them is really important, so that we avoid a sugar-bomb (which can worsen our PMS/Hot Flashes or skin-complaints).
Use this 3 check approach to creating a tasty quick smoothie that your cells will love!
- Protein - protein is the building blocks of our body & helps us feel satisfied. Choose high quality plant-based protein like hemp seeds/hemp powder or even go for the yummy chocolate or vanilla protein powders (I love SunWarrior & That Protein)
- Fats - every smoothie (and meal) should have some essential fats in. Fats that are good for our brain & heart function, hormone production & skin are: flax seed, nuts & seeds, avocados, coconut
- Carbs - chose your carbs wisely for your smoothie. Aim for green veg like spinach (which doesn't taste of anything once blended) or cauliflower (which just makes it creamy). Then for the sweetness add a few berries. Berries are the lowest glycemic of all fruits & are great anti-oxidants, mopping up toxins & helping our skin stay radiant!
This is my favourite Winter Berry Smoothie, I hope you enjoy it!
