A weekend is a great opportunity to slow the time down, not be in a rush and do what you like. I really enjoy cooking. At the same time, I never spend in the kitchen for more than forty minutes. Because healthy meals do not require a lot of time.
In the morning, I slowly crawled out of bed on an exercise mat. A little more than half an hour of yoga, and I my body is grateful to me. This afternoon, I play tennis which is an intense cardiovascular workout. So 30 minutes of yoga is enough to warm-up joints and muscles. After yoga – a green smoothie, shower and cooking breakfast. As always this happens with different recipes in my case, Russian pancakes recipe was converted into a one without gluten and sugar.
Ingredients for eight medium pancakes:
- bananas instead of sugar – 2 pieces;
- baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon;
- eggs – 2 pieces;
- coconut milk – 3 tablespoons;
- cup of quinoa flour (can be substituted for rice flour, if you need gluten-free option, or wheat, if you eat gluten);
- glass of water;
- a pinch of salt.
Bananas I mash in a blender, then mixed with all the ingredients. And I leave the dough for 30 minutes to infuse. Then I stirred and still about a quarter cup of water. I fry pancakes quickly with a little olive oil.
In the evening I made a variant of dietary jam. Just mashed in the blender two mango pulp (you can use any other fruit). I added five teaspoons of chia seeds in a mango puree, and put in the refrigerator overnight. The seeds swell and make the mass like a jam. It served as a topping for pancakes with strawberries.
The great compliment for this breakfast is a green tea with lemon and a little clove. It is not only a tasty and healthy meal, but also a way to hear one more time that I am the best wife in the world! 🙂
