I've mentioned my sweet tooth here before. What I haven't mentioned is how much distress my sweet tooth causes me. I, very simply, do not deal well with sugar any more. And moderation has never been my strong point. I get cranky. Major cranky. Then I eat more sugar and get even crankier. Then I stand on the scale and the result is the last straw that leads to the destruction of large quantities of chocolate via my stomach. I know, it makes perfect sense.
As I lay there, stomach completely distended wondering what I was thinking going back for handful after handful of chocolate covered acai berries, I remember what it feels like to actually feel good and grudgingly admit to myself that my diet is responsible for 98% of me physically feeling good, which tends to lead to me mentally feeling good. The final months of winter are hard enough for me without me making myself sick.
So I'm back on the Paleo Diet bandwagon. For 100 days. And my master plan is to have 100 de-lish paleo recipes up here when all is said and done. Will I manage 100 unique recipes? Probably not, but I'm going to try. So we'll start with Saturdays breakfast: Banana pancakes!
Ingredients: 1 banana, 1 egg, 1 tbsp almond butter, cinnamon
Directions: Mash banana. Whisk in egg. Stir in almond butter and cinnamon. Pour small pancakes onto hot pan. Flip gently. Enjoy.
