Health Isn’t an Option - It’s a Lifestyle.
Food is only unhealthy if you make it that way. There’s always a healthy alternative!
A weekend favorite at our house is buckwheat pancakes. When we make buckwheat pancakes, we get our kids involved so they can learn how to cook, build a positive relationship with food, increases fine motor skills, reading, math, and safety skills along with their vocabulary and scientific concepts. Not to mention buckwheat is healthier for them, so we avoid common brands like Bisquick, Aunt Jemima, and Krusteaz since they put so many additives into the mixture and it’s those additives that cause health problems.
In one box of Bisquick pancake mix you consume: monoglycerides (which can be contaminated with toxins like lead and mercury during the manufacturing process), corn starch, salt, DATEM (an additive that can lead to “leaky gut syndrome”) and dextrose. When you make buckwheat pancakes from scratch, you avoid all the additives food manufacturers...
