I’ve got two two things on my mind.
Avatar & iPhone.
I saw Avatar just a few hours ago and it was epic. I loved it. If 3D is the direction movies are going in, then I’m ready. I even saved my 3D glasses, I’m super ready.
and iPhone… my dear iPhone. I got it yesterday and I love it. I am still in the honeymoon phase and don’t want to let it out of my sight. I think I have it mastered and I have been going app crazy. To go from a Blackberry to an iPhone is like going from a old, beat up, paint chipping Ford Taurus to a new shiny Benz.
I was ready for my Benz.
As you know, weekends blog posts are dedicated to my 1o in Ten challenge. I have been eating well though I wish I worked out more last week than I did. There is no reason to be upset with myself, I always have next week!
….back to the iPhone. I downloaded a cool app that I know will help me as I try to shed some pounds. It is free, so I am sure many of you with iPhone’s have it. It is called ‘Lose It‘. You tell it how much you weigh and how much you want to lose. It calculates your daily calorie needs and as you eat you type in what you eat and the calories will be deducted from your calorie bank.
But what you log into Lose It needs to be healthy, right? So how about some healthy, low fat, Whole Wheat Pancakes, with a rich Blueberry maple Syrup?
Whole Wheat Pancakes
- 2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 TBS Brown Sugar
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Sugar
- 2 TBS Flax Seed
- 2 cups Milk 1% or Skim
- 1 Egg
- 1 TBS Canola Oil
- 1/2 cup Mix-Ins Nuts, fruit, chocolate chips
- Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl. Add the dry ingredients first, and pour the wet ingredients on top. Stir until combined and add your ‘mix-ins’ last (I used pecan pieces).
- Heat a large nonstick pan until hot. (I make a small test pancake and when it starts to cook I know the pan is ready. Then you can taste the pancake and see if there are any adjustments you would like to make).
- Use a ladle to pour batter into pan, into the desired size of your pancakes.
- When bubbles appear on surface, loosen the pancake and flip to the other side until brown.
- Keep hot in a slightly warm oven (or covered) and make the rest of the pancakes. Serve with your favorite toppings, or blueberry maple syrup.
Blueberry Maple Syrup recipe
- 1 cup Blueberries, frozen or fresh
- 1 1/2 cup Maple Syrup
1. Combine in a small sauce pot and turn to medium heat. Let mixture simmer and reduce to 1 cup, which will take around 15 – 20 minutes.
I am normally not a pancake person and usually prefer a crispy waffle, but there were heaven. You could totally fool anyone with these waffles, as they don’t have a ‘healthy’ taste. And by that I mean they don’t taste like cardboard. Add some chocolate chips to fool your kids (shhh, the healthy part will be our little secret!)
The pancakes are soft and lightly sweet. I added pecan bits to mine which added a nice crunch, but you could add anything to them. The blueberry maple syrup is rich and a little goes a long way. It would also go great on waffles, and even ice cream and desserts.
