1 cup of nut milk
1/4 cup of chia seed
1/2-1 cup of blueberries
Combine nut milk and lemon juice and let it sit for 5 minutes, to make like a "fake" buttermilk. In mixing bowl, combine applesauce, and the buttermilk mixture. Add in brown sugar, salt, baking soda, flax and mix well. Add in flour, mix well. Fold in blueberries. Pour onto a non stick pan or griddle by 1/4-1/3 cup fulls. Turn when bubbles form on top of pancakes. Makes about 12 servings. Roughly 130-140 calories per cake :)
4 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp salt
2 tbsp raw cane sugar (or whatever sweetener you prefer)
1 cup warm water
2 cups warm water
Combine 3 cups of flour and remaining ingredients (except the warm water) in a mixing bowl. Once all ingredients are combine then add the warm water and mix. Add the remaining 2 cups of flour and mix until it forms a doughy ball. Knead dough for 5-10 minutes. Place back in mixing bowl, cover and let rise 30 minutes. Once 30 minutes has elapsed, pound the dough with your fists and knead again for 5-10 minutes. Shape into whatever bread form you desire (braid, french style, etc...) Cover again and let rise for another 30 minutes. Then bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Here is the not so local pile, friends from New Zealand, USA, Mexico and other area's of Canada were present. With all the fresh veggies and fruits in the house I'm excited to try a few new recipes I've found on your blogs! Thank you btw for sharing such inspiring recipes :)
Things have been busy the past couple weeks. We finally got a heat wave, so there has been a lot of swimming in the ocean, playtime at the water parks and lounging in the sun with good eats. I'm so exhausted today, because our weekend was filled with everything I just mentioned from morning till late at night. Mix that with heat, laughter, and running after little ones equals being tired today even after a decent sleep.
With all the busy days I've been making a lot of meals to go. I've been keeping things simple the past couple weeks. Easy peasy salads and dressings usually with a side of fruit.
I've also been exploring marinated vegetables...
Marinated Vegetable Salad
1 cup of chopped Broccoli
1 cup of chopped Cauliflower
1 cup of sliced Carrots
5 Radish bulbs (sliced)
4 ribs of chopped celery
1/2 cup of diced purple onion
Throw it all in a bowl and mix!
2 Tbsp of Olive Oil
1 Tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar
Fresh herbs (I used some Oregano)
Just throw the marinade into the bowl with the vegetables and mix :)
Hope everyone is enjoying summer!
