Hemponut Pancakes!

Hemp/

Hemponut Pancakes!  (no grain pancakes)

-4 organic eggs

-2 tsp of vanilla extract

-1 1/4 cup of sweetened or unsweetened almond milk

-1/2 cup of coconut flour

-2 tsp of hemp flour

-1 tbsp of hemp hearts

-1/2 tsp of cinnamon

-1 tbsp of coconut oil for frying

Start by combining eggs, vanilla extract and almond milk in medium sized bowl.  Blend until mixture is frothy using a hand-blender.  Add in the coconut flour, hemp flour, hemp hearts and cinnamon.  Use hand blender again until texture is smooth (no lumps). In medium pan, over medium heat, add coconut oil until melted, then, using a ladle, add pancake mix to pan. Each pancake should only be about the size of your palm.  Give the pan a slight shake to even out batter.  If the edges of the pancakes start to get too brown (starting to burn), lower heat to med-low. When the outer edges of the pancakes are visibly firm (should be brown, not burnt), use a spactual (preferably a thin and metal) to flip. Pancakes are done when both sides are golden brown (about 2-3mins each side). These pancakes will not be as fluffy  as regular flour pancakes, but they taste great (have a coconut after-taste), and they are packed with protein for a morning kick start!  Top with maple syrup, bananas and crushed almond for a nice contrast of sweet, soft and crunchy. Berries with fresh mint is a nice topper too! Get creative!  Hope you enjoy this recipe and remember, be aware and eat with care 🙂

Kale Scambleeed Eggs and Ultimate Brekkie Smoothie!!

kale eggs and smoothie

Kale Scambleeed Eggs:

-3 organic eggs (2 with yolks, 1 only egg white if you want more protein without the fat)

-2 organic chicken/turkey brekkie sausages

-handful of washed, slightly chopped organic kale (any type)

-1 clove organic garlic (minced finely)

-tsp of rice bran oil, organic hemp seed oil or organic coconut oil

In a small frying pan, fry the garlic over medium high heat.  When fragrant, add sausage and cook until not pink in the middle (5mins).  Add kale and sauté (1 min). Crack in 2 eggs with yokes, add 1 more egg without yoke, if wanted. Using a spatula stir eggs, kale, sausage, garlic all together until eggs go from translucent and fluid, to firm and opaque (3-4mins).  Turn off heat and put frying pan contents on to plate.  Add tomato sauce (ketchup), salt and pepper, or any sauce you like, if you want.  I enjoy antipasto on my Kale Scrambleeed Eggs, gives it a pickled contrasting taste to the veggie goodness of the kale, and the saltiness of the sausage. Hope you enjoy this recipe, and be aware and eat with care 🙂

Ultimate Brekkie Smoothie!!  (all contents except almond milk are organically sourced)

-1/2 banana

-handful of frozen blueberries

-5 frozen raspberries and blackberries

-2 tbsp of hemp hearts

-1 tbsp of cacao powder (pure chocolate powder- high in antioxidants)

-1/2 avocado

-1/2 carrot

-handful of frozen or fresh kale

-1 cup of unsweetened almond milk

-1/2 cup of water (Britta filtered if possible)

Blend all ingredients with hand blender or regular bender until smooth.  This smoothie is super packed with nutrients, and is great for breakfast or a snack.  Not going to lie, it does not taste like Booster Juice Smoothies, those are packed with sugar from fruit juice which is high in fructose (not good for you).  If you want to make it sweeter please use something like Stevia (1 package) or honey (1 tbsp).  Drink and enjoy!! And always remember, be aware and eat with care 🙂
