Pancake morning!

I should have said to make pancakes with maple syrup in my kitchen tip post! We’ve been on a restricted diet the past few weeks, trying to help my husband detox (he had a serious illness this spring and summer, but that’s a whole other story), so everyone was so excited this morning when I finally made pancakes again! And not just any pancakes, but a delicious recipe from Nourishing Traditions [1], where you soak the flour overnight in buttermilk or yogurt to start to break down the phytic acid and predigest the grains (this aids in the digestion of grains and the absorption of their nutrients). On a side note, if you’re interested, you can read this short article [2]that tells you about the concept more in detail.

Anyways, after not having had them for awhile, and having some really amazing grade B, organic maple syrup on hand (one of the yummiest splurges ever- grade B has a much stronger maple flavor!), they were such a hit with my husband and daughter! I think she managed to put away 6 of them!
