Buckwheat Pancakes

27 Feb

I can’t stop thinking about these.

Buckwheat Pancakes

As a natural part of nutrition school, I’ve decided to TRY going gluten-free for the most part. I made these babies in ~10 minutes a little while ago, which even included making by own buckwheat flour in the Blendtec!

Testing a Gluten-Free Pie Shell and Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe

4 Apr

I was given a Piccola Cucina gluten-free pie shell to test out and decided to make one of my favourite pies – Lemon Meringue! I particularly like to make this pie when it’s cold out, to remind me of warmer times to come. It’s also perfect for the upcoming Easter weekend if you’re having company over for dinner. Give it a try with any type of pie shell.

One of the most challenging things about going gluten-free is trying to recreate foods – breads, pastries, pastas – exactly how you remember them to be. It doesn’t help that the mind tends to embellish fond memories, especially when it comes to food. This presents the perfect opportunity to practice aprigraha or non-attachment. An exact replica of your favourite gluten-y food may never exist. Practice letting go, accepting what is, and move forward, in this case to other recipes (of which there are many!) that are still delicious, nutritious, and satisfying.  To read the rest of this article and see the recipe for Buckwheat and Tuna Salad, take the leap to Bodhi Tree’s blog…
