DIETARY REBOOT – Days 7 and 8

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 7 and 8

“Like Sex With Your Pants On”… tee hee!

That’s going to raise a few eyebrows.

This is where  Whole 30  and I may not entirely agree.

I understand the concept  and if you would like to read about their

very amusing analogy you can find the article here.

It’s when it comes to making crêpes or pancakes

that I disagree, somewhat.

Thing is, sometimes we actually do enjoy  no-flour pancakes.

I mean really enjoy.

And not because we are avoiding flour.

Sometimes on our little boat I’m fresh out of flour

and all I have for morning crêpes is a banana and  eggs.

It’s a very smart, very healthy

and totally delicious alternative.

Pants on or not, today for breakfast

we are having Whole 30 compliant but not entirely sanctioned

Two-Ingredient Pancakes

I left out the baking powder

which gives a slightly lighter result.

Serve with homemade blueberry sauce (recipe follows)

Blueberry Sauce

what you will need

2 cups blueberries

1/4 cup water or fruit juice for a sweeter result

(I used the water I had added to our fresh pineapple)

2 tsp arrowroot powder

1 tbsp water

time to cook

Simmer blueberries and juice for about 5 minutes.

In a small bowl whisk together arrow root and water.

Remove blueberries from the stove

and stir in arrowroot mixture.

Continuing to cook after adding the arrowroot will destroy its thickening properties

So easy!

…and no sugar added.

The sauce will thicken as it cools.
