Dreaming of pancakes

I woke up at 5.30 am again today, time to smile a sunny morning, even if it was still dark. I didn't always love mornings, but do now! Sound sleep, refreshed, energy 🌞😀🌞😀 I drank my cup of morning tea,  searching for a gluten free, vegan pancake recipe to try for breakfast 😀🌞😀🌞😀🌞
I go to do my qigong under this! So blessed and grateful. Feeling the energy 💟🌞💟🌞💟
So, after much searching, I decided to roughly base my recipe on a recipe share by, Cooking with Plants on You tube. It was for pumpkin pancakes, with peanut butter topping. So, my recipe is quite different. I wanted to use sorghum flour, since I tolerate that well. After years of being scared of food, then diagnosed with celiac disease, on top of allergies to many other foods, I'm feeling so well again on a Vegan, plant based diet, my confidence is back and I'm having fun doing something I love again! Recipes, baking, cooking, ingredients, I love it all, of course the eating too. 
So, to start with, I blended the wet ingredients in my food processor

1 banana
1 cup cashews milk
Splash of vanilla

Then add
1/2 cup sorghum flour
1/4 cup tapioca flour
1/4 cup sweet rice flour
1 Tablespoon coconut sugar
A pinch of salt

(I buy all my flours from great prices and free postage, even to Australia.)

Blend this up

Heat the pan
Add a little nuttelex coconut butter, pour small amounts of batter into the pan. Leave until the bottom is brown, as you do with usual pancakes, the only difference is they don't bubble. I don't like the taste of baking powders and the like, but you can easily get bubbles by adding this. The pancakes are still fluffy without.

Flip, and cook the other side

Better than non vegan pancakes! 
You better believe it 😁😉😁
I really,  really, really enjoyed these! I don't feel sick after eating  them, I don't have a heavy tummy, I'm energised and ready to go! Happiness!  Too much excitement for the morning! It's 8am and I've already had the best day ever! I love mornings!

Good morning!

Good morning 🌞🌻🌞🌻🌞 I spent a relaxing morning, wandering around my garden at first light, watching my garden wake up. Then the sun came up and my sun catcher was shining so brilliantly, sharing the sun's message, "It's going to be a wonderful day" 😀🌞😀🌞😀🌞😀

It's world Qigong and Tai chi day!

It's world tai chi and qigong day! Qigong has changed my life! I could barely walk, or even stand or move my arms through the routine I will share with you, last year, after 20 years of full body, crippling autoimmune arthritis and 10 years of adrenal disease. I've worked up to doing this routine 2 times per day. I'm stronger, healthier, calmer, happier and more energetic in my daily life. Getting our Qi moving is just as important as the food we eat. I can't proclaim loudly enough how much I love qigong and how beneficial it has been for me. I don't see I'll ever stop progressing with this ancient exercise. I 💟 qigong
