Most days, we set out to experience the world with our own perspective- Our own shoes. But what happens when empathy is a core value with no set line? How do we draw it? What if we don’t know how to express or experience it in the first place?
As the weather cools off and the evenings free up, I have found myself starting to cook more often. There’s something about Fall that makes it one of the most peaceful and gratifying things for me to do!
I get asked quite a bit about my favorite go-to recipes and things to keep on hand. So here we go! I love to stay with a gluten-free, whole-food approach to anything I make at home. These are three of my quick and easy favorites!
Grilled Pineapple, Onions, & Jalapeno
Stay with me here.. It LOOKS very strange. It’s actually very good and as a bonus, it’s adjustable!
Slice a fresh pineapple however you like it. I prefer chopped. Add a sliced jalapeno and chopped onion and grill until it’s slightly browned. Trust me on this one.
Who doesn’t love pancakes?! On to the next one:
Easy Egg-Banana Pancackes
This one is just as easy! I take two fresh eggs and mix them with a banana until it’s a relatively smooth consistency. The eggs will allow the banana to set. I grill mine over a little bit of coconut oil until they’re cooked through and drizzle with raw, unfiltered honey. Perfection in the form of protein and potassium for breakfast.
The next one comes with a disclaimer: These will be gone before they hit the counter. It may be best to make these under cover of night before the other house mates catch wind of it.
(Hey.. I had to think of something besides “Magic”..)
You can adjust this however you’d prefer. I like to take a little of each in a bowl and add the honey and coconut oil until it’s pliable but holds together. Spread the resulting mixture into a thinly oiled pan until they’re a little over an inch thick. I cover them with wax paper and let them set for about an hour in the fridge. This is one that may take some trial and error. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve ended up with something more like granola cereal instead. No matter what, it will be just as good!
I hope you’ll try these and enjoy!
