They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but I say it can also be the most delicious! Whether it’s having a solid, healthy breakfast to start the day or making breakfast for dinner, breakfast foods are one of the best food groups
I did so many tests to finally get a good paleo-friendly, gluten-free pancake recipe that’s ACTUALLY fluffy, and this is the winner right here!
Since perfecting these buckwheat pancakes, I’ve made them on a regular basis and I’m pretty sure it’s going to remain a weekend breakfast staple for a long time to come. I personally love having a more hearty breakfast to start the day or fuel my workouts (you can find another one of my favorite breakfast recipes here!)
This recipe is a great way to balance out clean eating with comfort food, and an example of how a healthful eating plan can still include yummy treats that don’t throw you off track of your health goals. You can even experiment with using different berries for the compote to find your own perfect brunch treat!
These Buckwheat pancakes are also in the cookbook for my new 28-Day Gut Health Reset Program. I know what you’re thinking….
Fluffy buckwheat pancakes on a gut healing program?
Don’t let the name of buckwheat flour fool you. It’s actually a seed and not related to wheat at all! Buckwheat is a gluten-free cereal grain similar to quinoa and amaranth. It’s full of minerals and antioxidants, making it a better choice nutritionally all around.
Buckwheat flour is also a good source of fiber, which is an important part of a healthy gut. Your microbiome can be directly impacted through the types of fiber you regularly consume so getting a variety of fibers from different sources is a big factor in a healthy gut. So you’re actually doing your gut a favor by eating these buckwheat pancakes
Gut Health is NOT about Restriction
Another important thing to mention is that my Gut Health Reset program is NOT about restriction. At the beginning of my own gut healing journey, I put so much pressure on myself, telling myself that I wasn’t being strict enough, that if I just cut out this food or that food THEN I would finally feel normal again…
But it simply doesn’t work like that!
I know that small changes can lead to big shifts in your body, and that it’s just as important to give yourself what your body needs rather than cutting out as much as possible until there’s nothing left to eat.
I also know that if I had support and guidance while I was on in my own healing journey I would not have had to suffer as long as I did.
In the 28-Day Gut Health Reset Program, I’m giving you a step-by-step blueprint to follow to heal your gut naturally. It’s full of recipes, meal plans, supplement guides, and so much more!
If you’ve been looking for ways to heal your gut naturally but haven’t been sure where to start, the 28-Day Gut Health Reset is for you.
