I don’t know if it’s my subconscious saying, “you have to go back to work soon so take full advantage of your vacation days,” or what, but I slept in again today… to am embarrassing 10:00 am.
Needless to say, breakfast also served the purpose of lunch.
Luckily it was filling and delicious!
Vegan Blueberry Pancakes
Makes 8 pancakes
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup spelt flour
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 1/2 cup soy milk
2 Tbsp. coconut oil
1 Tbsp. raw sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 Tbsp. ground flax seed
1 cup fresh blueberries
- Whisk together the flours, cornstarch, baking powder and salt.
- In a microwave safe bowl, combine the soy milk, coconut oil, and sugar. Microwave for 1-2 minutes or until the coconut oil is melted. Whisk together then incorporate the vanilla and flax to the liquid ingredients.
- Carefully pour the wet ingredients into the dry while whisking. Mix together until combined, the mixture may be a bit lumpy, but that’s ok. Gently fold in the blueberries.
- Preheat a non-stick skillet for at least 2 minutes then pour 1/4 cup of the batter onto the skillet. Cook until bubbles begin form in the middle and the edges are set then flip and cook the other side.
Tomorrow, my job as a teacher officially resumes.
To be honest, I’m excited to go back. I really miss being around kids and look forward to jumpstarting my creativity once again.
All day today, I did school-prep work on the computer. I also planned 2 new bulletin board displays that I’m really excited about. I’ll show you guys the finished product in a week or two.
Around 4 o’clock I was hungry again but didn’t want to eat anything too heavy before going to the gym, so I sliced up an apple to eat with a beautiful heap of peanut butter.
It has been raining all day today so getting out of the apartment and going to the gym took quite a bit of personal encouragement. But as they say, you never regret a workout, you only regret skipping one! This is true.
Once home, it was time to really feed my hungry body.
You’ve got to love a good stir fry!
No recipe here, but the veggies included 1/4 block smoked tofu, 1 carrot, 1 small zucchini, 3 mushrooms, 1/2 red pepper, 1/2 red chili pepper, 2 small cloves of garlic, a nub of ginger and 1/4 red onion. The sauce was just soy sauce, agave nectar and a splash of orange juice.
Ok, I guess that is kind of a recipe. Oh well.
So, I’m off to bed, wish me luck tomorrow as the teachers all gather back together. This will certainly be a productive week before the kiddies return!
