Gina's Gluten-Free Nut Pancakes

I finally made gluten free pancakes that taste out of this world!  I used a nut grinder (Vitamix dry container) to grind the oats and nuts into flour. Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nut flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 tbs baking powder (preferably aluminum free)
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 large eggs or egg substitute
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups milk of any kind (I used organic whole)
  • 4 tbs unsalted butter melted
  • coconut oil for cooking
Heat your griddle or pan on medium.  Add all ingredients except coconut oil in a blender and blend on medium speed until smooth.  Melt a little coconut oil on griddle and add batter 1/4 cup at a time until edges are slighly drying and bubbles are forming on top, about 2-3 minutes.  Flip pancake for 2 or more minutes.  Enjoy with pure maple syrup! Tip: If the batter is too loose, add more oat flour, if too thick add more milk.

NutriBlast & Multiple Sclerosis

nutriblastsCan NutriBlasts help with Multiple Sclerosis? A:  While everyone is unique, some may experience symptom relief when including more nutrient-dense foods into their diet. Dr. Terry Wahls provides an incredible example of the benefits of incorporating more produce into your daily routine. She discusses the specific nutrients that help nourish neurotransmitters and mitochondria. Fortunately, the NutriBullet can help you get more fruits and veggies into your diet; however, please consult your doctor before beginning a new dietary regimen. Dr. Wahls, who was diagnosed with MS, focuses on B vitamins, sulfur-containing vegetables, omega-3 fatty acids, iodine, and antioxidants. Based on these recommendations, here’s an appropriate NutriBlast recipe:
  •  50% kale
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 cup berries
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • seaweed powder (follow package directions)
Incorporate more leafy greens (kale, collards, spinach), sulfur-rich veggies (cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, asparagus), brightly colored fruits and veggies, seaweeds (for iodine), and omega-3 fatty acids (walnuts, chia seeds, flax seeds) to help potentially relieve symptoms brought on by MS.


Easy Smoothie Blender

Easy Smoothie Blender Other than my Vitamix blender, this is by far the easiest blender I have ever used.  The best part about it is, I blend a variety of nutritional ingredients in it.  It pulverizes vegetables, fruits and even nuts and seeds!  So you can easily add protein (nuts & seeds) to your smoothies for a full packed nutritious drink. How easy is that?!!
