It has to be one of the best feelings – waking up refreshed after a great night’s sleep to the sun shining on a perfect Spring morning, knowing that it is still the weekend and reality can wait for another day. I have just had a healthy but decadent breakfast (so good I forgot to take a photo to share) of pancakes with caramelised banana, Greek yoghurt and berries. It was simple to make but tasted really good. Have a go!!
Healthy Wholemeal Pancakes
- 1 cup of wholemeal flour
- I cup of almond milk
- I egg
- A little pinch of salt
- A drop of vanilla extract
Simply whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl and fry in coconut oil until golden brown on both sides.
I had two pancakes drizzled with maple syrup and I fried a banana in a pan until golden and placed it in the middle. I topped it all off with a dollop of Greek yoghurt and a handful of fresh raspberries. Delicious.
Appetite sated, it is time for a little light exercise and so I am off to the forest with the dog. Time to enjoy the last of the daffodils and the cuteness of fields of spring lambs. But maybe, like Wordsworth, the memory of beautiful mornings can help get us through those days when we are fit for little more than lazing on the couch daydreaming. Of course Wordsworth had no instagram so he had no choice but rely on the pictures in his mind for his escapism. Was he any worse off I wonder??? Could we all do with a little more time to remember and reflect??
Have a great Sunday whatever you get up to, and take some time to notice the fresh flowers and the beauty that surrounds you xo
