Take Time to Honor the Pancake

We love a good celebration, and could there be any better than January 28th, National Blueberry Pancake Day? We don’t think so! There is something endearing and delicious when you wake up to the warm smells of pancakes cooking in the kitchen, watch the butter slowly melt into the tender bread and pour the thick, dark maple syrup until drips over the edges. Yes, we love our pancakes. Unfortunately, for many of us adulthood and health conscious eating has put our blueberry pancake days behind us. We find this entirely unfair, so we decided to take back this time-honored breakfast by reinventing a classic with a whole new healthy twist. Since we’re taking the time to celebrate breakfast, we thought it might be fun to celebrate lunch and dinner too. Take a look at three excellent recipes that bring back the flavors of childhood with the nutrition we all need by adding unflavored Terra Origin Bone Broth Protein with Turmeric.

Breakfast – Blueberry Pancakes

Health benefit: When having pancakes for breakfast, the biggest let down is the lack of protein to hold you through your morning. These pack 17+ grams per serving!

Servings – 1

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of oat flour (You can put raw rolled oats in a blender until they become a powder.)
  • 1 scoop of Terra Origin Unflavored Bone Broth Protein with Turmeric
  • 1 tsp. of baking powder
  • ¼ tsp of salt
  • ¾ cup of blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 mashed medium banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup coconut milk (substitute your favorite dairy-free milk)
  • 2 tbs. coconut oil

Directions:

In a large bowl, whisk together oat flour, protein powder, baking powder, and salt. In a smaller bowl, mash the banana and whisk in eggs, vanilla, and coconut milk. Then add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk until all the oat flour is completely moist.  Lastly add the coconut oil and blueberries and stir until well combined.

Place a little coconut oil in a skillet and preheat over medium heat. Once hot but not popping, pour in a scoop of the batter. Cook until you see the standard bubbles begin. Check the edges and when browned to satisfaction, flip.

Lunch – The Almighty Grilled Cheese and Tomato Sandwich

Health benefit: A cheese sandwich, with the right bread and cheese, can offer a variety of nutrients, but the combination of bread and lactose can create havoc on your digestion. We’re adding in anti-inflammatory turmeric and types I and III collagen-based protein to make sure lunch is packed with digestive support.

Grilled Cheese and Tomato Sandwich

Ingredients:

  • 2 thick slices of protein seed bread (recipe below)
  • Cheese is based on preference. You can go with vegan cheese, but for this sandwich we like:
  • 1 tbsp. of soft herbed goat cheese
  • 1 thin slice of provolone
  • 1 thin slice of parmesan
  • 3 slices of heirloom or Roma tomato
  • 1 tbsp. ghee

Directions:

Layer the sandwich with the goat cheese on one slice the tomato in the middle and the cheese slices on the other piece of bread. This allows the cheese to melt around the tomatoes. Heat the ghee in a skillet until hot. Place the sandwich in the hot ghee and flip when brown and crunchy. Enjoy!

One Bowl Blender Bread

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup almonds
  • 1 heaping cup of mixed raw seeds (chia, flax, sunflower, pumpkin, hemp, sesame, etc.)
  • 1 ½ cup almond or oat flour or mix (grind raw whole almonds or raw rolled oats into flour)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 scoops of Terra Origin Unflavored Bone Broth Protein with Turmeric
  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup olive, avocado or coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • ½ tsp. salt

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Pulse the almonds in a blender or food processor a few times to break into pieces. Add your cup of seeds and blend until coarsely ground. Then add in the flour, baking soda and protein powder and blend until mixed. Add the eggs, almond milk, oil, honey, vinegar and ½ teaspoon of salt and process until well combined.

Next, cover an 8'' x 4'' loaf pan with parchment paper and pour the batter into the pan. Bake for 45 – 50 minutes, or until the bread is golden-brown and a knife or fork inserted in the center comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and let cool completely. Slice it up for your protein packed sandwiches!

Dinner – Vegetable Stew

Health benefit: Vegetables have a ton of healthy benefits all on their own, but they lack collagen to turn that stew into a gut healing miraculous broth. Now you can have all the benefits of beef stew without hours of roasting bones!

Servings – 2

Ingredients:

  • 2 sticks of celery chopped
  • 2 large carrots chopped
  • 1 medium yellow onion sliced
  • 1 leek thin sliced
  • 1 heaping cup of fresh spinach
  • 1 cup of chopped oyster mushroom or chanterelles
  • 1 medium yellow squash chopped
  • 1 cup of fresh or frozen corn kernels
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 scoops of Terra Origin Unflavored Bone Broth Protein with Turmeric
  • 2 tbsp. thyme
  • 3 cloves of garlic mashed
  • 1 tbsp. of fresh basil
  • Salt, pepper to taste
  • 3 cups of water

Directions:

Place the mashed garlic and olive oil in the bottom of a 4 qt. soup pot, heat off. Chop all your vegetables while the oil and garlic infuse. Then turn on the stovetop to medium heat, add the onion, leek, carrot and celery and sauté until the onion is translucent. Add in the thyme and basil and sauté another minute till it gets slightly browned.

Add in the water, squash and corn and bring to a boil for 10 minutes. Add the mushrooms, spinach, salt and pepper and boil another 10 minutes or until the vegetables have the texture you prefer. When you turn off the heat, add in the 2 scoops of bone broth powder. Mix well and enjoy!
