Vegan American Pancakes

This morning I wanted to make some American Pancakes, but an vegan version. I have been changing my eating from vegetarian to vegan this past couple of weeks. It’s been easier than I thought, I haven’t really been missing anything, because I can eat pretty much everything I like. And I feel a lot better, more energy, not this stuffy feeling after eating and you can eat more :).

I made these pancakes today, they were super fluffy and I would say pretty identical to what I’ve eating before. And really fast, which was good as I was super hungry!

Recipe

1 cup flour ( I used wholewheat this time)

1 tablespoon sugar (I used organic brown sugar)

2 tablespoons baking powder (yes that much!)

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 cup soymilk

2 tablespoons vegetable oil ( I used coconut oil)

– Mix all the dry ingredients together, then add the soymilk and oil and mix until smooth.

– Then heat the pan, maybe little coconut oil depending on your pan and start making delicious pancakes 🙂

– I had some raspberries and kiwi and also little organic maple syrup, yummy!20140322-182113.jpg

Yesterdays run was quite amazing but for some reason I just didn’t want to go, but goodie that I did. The weather was soooo nice with lots of sun shine, few minus degrees and tiny bit snow, what more can you wish for :).
There was also a deer spotting, because on my path there was deer just standing there and then crossed it to disappear to the forest. It was maybe less than 10 metres from me and so so beautiful! So it was good that I went :). And I didn’t want to quit my challenge on the second day!
But one thing that I was worried before, happened already on my second day! I didn’t eat enough before my run, then after I was “too busy” to leave and didn’t eat enough, in the city I had too much fun with seeing my friend and didn’t eat enough… And so on. I didn’t even realize it before just before going to bed and tried to stuff myself with food, which ended up only making me feel really shitty :(. This morning I really felt it, I feel like I have a hangover without drinking, so now I’m slowly dehydrating and eating myself back to normal to be able to do what I’m set to do. When will I learn?!

Foodie

My food habits are pretty nice at the moment and going to a better direction all the time. I feel better everyday and the reason is the fuel that I put in myself.
Main things that I’ve dropped or slowly am loosing from my diet, are meats, milk products, breads and different wheats, processed foods and in general things that I don’t know where they come from.
Trying and learning more about plant based diet everyday, I’m pretty excited to find things that are awesome and totally new to me.
Hardest thing at the moment is the fact that due to my exercising I need more fuel and most days I’m not getting enough, just because I don’t realize to eat enough. I’m not used to use my body this much and that’s why I don’t remember to eat enough… Learning process for sure!
