It’s tough to beat a stack of homemade pancakes! Traditional pancake mixes will often contain LOADS of unhealthy ingredients such as GMO’s, chemical preservatives and refined sugars. Oh yes, and they will most certainly contain gluten which can be hard to digest for many people (myself included).
Here’s a pancake version that removes common gut irritants with yummy ingredients like plantains and pumpkin.
With 4 easy steps you can create your own fluffy, pumpkiny delicious pancakes that are fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside with a tasty golden shell. The best part – I’ve flavoured these babies with real pumpkin and spices to recreate that beloved pumpkin pie flavour.
These pancakes are the perfect gluten free, dairy free, nut free, egg free and Paleo friendly option for anyone with food sensitivities to wheat, grain, nuts, eggs or dairy. You could even make them autoimmune protocol friendly by substituting a few ingredients.
Bet you can’t eat just one! I suggest enjoying them with coconut oil, extra cinnamon and maple syrup.

I can’t believe how fast the summer went. September is here and that means it’s time to get serious! My son has started full-time kindergarten this year and he already has a whole week under his belt. I prepare most of the food in the home so I’m forced to quickly get organized so that I can provide healthy breakfasts, packed lunches and weeknight dinners. Sometimes a little routine after a busy summer doesn’t feel too bad. But I’m still going to miss those gorgeous evenings and the warm summer breezes!
For school I like to prepare nutrient dense meals to fill my kiddies and keep them as healthy as I can. Sending your kid to school is a bit like putting a sponge in a petri dish. The best thing we can do as parents is to give our kids the proper nutrition to give them a fighting chance and to help them recover from bugs quickly. I love Autumn but the sicknesses I could certainly live without. My son already has the sniffles today after the first week. Continue reading

I love the versatility of pulled pork! Add it to salad bowls, lettuce wraps, cauliflower rice or use as filling for your homemade taco shells. The options are endless and don’t get me started on all of the possible flavour combinations! Ok I’m starting: Smoky BBQ, chipotle, garlicky honey mmm…sooo many delicious flavours! I want them all.
I’m VERY pleased with how this Slow Cooker Sweet Orange Pulled Pork turned out. I implore you, PLEASE – DO NOT SLEEP on this recipe. After slow cooking in citrus and pure maple syrup for 6 hours the pork is falling apart and literally bursting with mouthwatering flavour. Continue reading

Oh sure you might know about kale chips… but did you know about brussel chips??
Crispy, salty, bite size deliciousness… these characteristics make for some quality snacking. I have pencilled in some quality snacking for today’s agenda and I always keep my appointments!
Next time you make some brussels sprouts, don’t toss out the outer leaves that are sometimes removed for cleaning. Set them aside and wash them well. These are the lovelies that will be getting crisped up with some lemon and dill. They make an awesome healthy snack for movie night (or whatever crazy shenanigans you’re getting into tonight). Your movie might not be great but this idea certainly gets two thumbs up. Continue reading
