This year I am attempting to eliminate dairy and slowly try gluten as well. I think both of them give me issues digestively. This morning I made some vegan/gluten free pancakes which turned out great. Add some maple syrup and they are wonderful!
Kid approved 🙂
Vegan/Gluten-free PANCAKES
  • 2 flax eggs (2 T ground flax + 4 T water, let sit 5 minutes)
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups non dairy milk
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 c almond flour
  • 1/2 c to 1 c brown rice flour
  • 1 c gluten-free all purpose flour

Make your flax eggs and let sit 5 minutes. Add apple cider vinegar, olive oil, and maple syrup.  Add dry ingredients and stir well. If mixture is too thin, add more brown rice flour to thicken. Cook on a hot griddle!

How much cheese do you/your kids eat? Have you tried dairy alternatives? I would love to replace with real foods (not alternatives). Trying to get the kids on board with more hummus and avocados and cashew dressing!

As far as the 30 day plan I was attempting – two smoothies a day went down to 1 smoothie a day – too expensive!! and boring!! I am enjoying one breakfast smoothie each morning though!

5 months! I hit 5 months last weekend. Now 24 weeks. Workouts have been good! Running has been hit or miss!
Favorite workout this week was from Blonde Ponytail:

I also got in a 5 mile run yesterday, slowly! About 11 minute miles. My littlest one came down the basement while I was running with my husband’s cell phone taking pictures. Haha. She is pretty good with her angle and the shot!
