What amazing "spring" weather we're enjoying at the moment! We've been spending loads of time outdoors barbecuing and possibly consuming too much booze on the weekend, especially last weekend (and the less we mention about the karaoke singing on the village green the better I think!)
During the week I try and balance out the unhealthy weekends by eating plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs and lean meat, but I do often struggle finding something to eat for breakfast that doesn't involve bread, other than eggs, mushrooms and spinach, which can get a little boring after a few days. I also prefer to eat breakfast around 10, which isn't particularly convenient on the days that I have to be out of the house around 8.30. On these mornings my healthy breakfast usually goes out of the window and I end up grabbing a crumpet or bagel for convenience.
I've now discovered a healthier alternative that gives me some extra nutrients in the morning, in the form of these Super Green Pancakes, which are great for eating on the go. Made from Naturelo Raw Greens Whole Food Powder, in a wild berry flavour, these pancakes are simple to make with just two additional ingredients.
Naturelo sell a range of premium supplements, including multivitamins for adults, teens and children. Their whole food powder is free from GMO, Soy, Yeast, Egg, Dairy and Corn, making it suitable for vegans as well as those trying to avoid these ingredients. The powder can be mixed with water or juice as a drink, but I prefer adding a scoop to pancakes and eating them with berries.
To be completely honest, I was a little apprehensive the first time I tried the product as I'm not keen on the after taste you sometimes find with protein powders, but I am absolutely in love with these pancakes, with their sweet nutty taste. It's really not necessary to serve them with maple syrup as the natural sweetness is enough, but who doesn't love a little syrup on their pancakes in the morning!
