Pancakes or crepes as they are known in France are one of my favourite things. You can have them as sweet or savoury, for breakfast, lunch or as a snack. Traditional pancakes made with refined flour are a high glycemic food as they will spike your blood sugar pretty quickly. This recipe is made with buckwheat which is actually a fruit seed and not a grain.
This daal is full of sweet and sour goodness. Lentils are a great source of protein and fibre making them a great choice for a filling and satisfying meal. The pineapple gives this recipe a lovely tangy twist as well as being great for digestion. Bromelain is an enzyme found in pineapple that is a great digestive aid.
Millet and cauliflower make a great alternative to rice and are super nutritious. Millet is high in protein and fibre, easy to digest, is gluten free and is high in B vitamins. It also contains the amino acid tryptophan, that can help you get a good night’s sleep.
This is a favourite in our house and makes a change to potatoes or sweet potatoes.
Cassava is staple food in many parts of Africa, Asia and the Caribbean. It is a starchy root vegetable from the tuber family and is a great source of fibre, vitamin C and manganese.
Porridge is a great, filling start to the day but it can get a bit bland after a while. Try this jazzed up recipe if you’re bored of your plain old porridge in the morning, I promise you’ll love it!
