One thing I definitely love are recipes that can be customized to the time of year. Take the humble pound cake for instance. You can make it with wonderful warm fall flavors like pumpkin, cinnamon and apple. Middle of winter, no problem- make it with almond extract and cranberries. Since its summer I decided to make a lovely citrus pound cake, studded with fresh raspberries and drizzled with a beautiful elderberry glaze!
Oh how I love chia seeds! They are such a mightly little seed. And it makes sense since the word "chia" is the ancient Mayan word for strength! A serving of 2 tablespoons has 4 grams protein and an amazing 11 grams fiber! This means you will stay full longer and won't be reaching for that mid-morning snack. High in Omega-3 fatty acids, anitioxidants, calcium, magnesium... the list goes on.
I'm sure you have seen those amazing bright pink, purple and blue smoothie bowls all over instagram. I wanted to try out these fun natural food colorings from a company called Raw Nice. Based in Sweden they have a line of natural food coloring powders made from fruits and veggies! I decided to try out the Beet Root Powder and make some deliciously pink pancakes. They are almost too pretty to eat (almost) 😉
