Just catching up? Read about the 10 days of Real Food Challenge *here*.
Today I started my morning off a little bit differently. I decided to bring some Pinterest recipes to life. I was going through my pins yesterday and I came across one for pancakes that would be acceptable to eat while doing the Real Food Challenge. They sounded interesting, but very good so I decided to give them a try.
1 ripe banana mashed + 2 eggs all whisked together +1 tsp cinnamon & 1 tsp vanilla=light, fluffy and naturally gluten free pancake. It made two pancakes, the first one didn’t turn out exactly round so it’s hiding underneath the top one 🙂 This pancake mixture reminded me a lot of a crepe. I will probably me making these again this week, but adding in some oats & almond butter for some breakfast “staying power”.
Madelyn decided that she’s been spoiled mommy enough with the awesome sleeping she’s been doing the past few days so she decided to pull an all nighter last night. So instead of eating lunch, we snoozed right through it.
For dinner we had leftover chicken from last night with a salad and potatoes. I snacked throughout the morning on the usual favorites (apples, almond butter and trail mix).
I’m almost done with the 10 day real food challenge and the biggest take away I’ve learned is to read ingredients. A lot of the prepackaged foods that we think are healthy, really aren’t that beneficial for you. My goal is to try to eat more real whole foods and less prepackaged food. Environmental > Factory. Of course I’ll allow myself a treat every now and then, but I’ll be a little more conscious about what ends up on my plate.
