One week to healthy- day 4
Featured Image

Started my day with buckwheat pancakes.  It’s what I wanted.  I tried making some vegan ones first from a recipe I found on The Healthy Chef. Fail!  I followed the recipe exactly.  They did not work.  So I added more and more almond milk.  End result- disgusting!  I washed up my pans and bowls and made my own no fail version.  As you can see I topped my pancakes off with healthy plain yogurt and raspberries.  So healthy.  Ok fine.  I admit it.  As soon as I turned off the camera I also doused the things in maple syrup.  Hey!  I’m Canadian.  We actually are not allowed to have pancakes without maple syrup.  For today I am saying maple syrup doesn’t count as sugar bad.  Just for today.

I’m about to hop on my bike for a 40k ride before finishing my work day.  I will just have a boiled egg and some carrot sticks after the ride.  Tonight, I’m off to the folk fest.  I’ll let you know tomorrow what trouble (or non trouble) I get in with my diet at the festival.  My intent is to treat myself to a delicious onigiri.
