Everybody knows pancakes are my favorite food. It is so hard for me to say NO to them. And I am not obsessed with food. I am just obsessed with pancakes.
The three of us (mom, dad, son), we just don’t indulge in sweets a lot. They make our energy to decrease drastically after an hour of consuming sugar, so we don’t get to be really productive. We avoid it the best way possible. But I crave sugar, and my guys crave sugar also. And we made our rules. We eat those fuel sugar stuff to keep up the good energy on high level and to keep the stress away. Our brain needs glucose so it can function properly and make us happy. Our favorite fillings are banana and dark chocolate, peanut butter, eggs, bacon, cheese and salad…
Buckwheat flour is high in fiber, antioxidants, and protein. You can leave out meat sometimes and make some alternative with buckwheat instead, and you will still feel full. It also contains vitamins (thiamine, niacin, vitamin B6) and minerals (manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, iron) and is non allergenic and gluten-free. Those who have problems with blood pressure and high cholesterol should consume it more often due to the high content of fiber.
You can cook buckwheat (1 cup buckwheat, 3 cups water) and you can make porridge of it, just like you do with oats! There is also a great healthy alternative of pasta, but let’s get back to the recipe my family is in love with!
