Hello blog friends!!  Hang on, it's going to be a long, bumpy ride! (Well, it's actually only long - not bumpy.  But long and bumpy sounds way better than just long, don't you think? ;)  Start with a recipe?  Sounds good to me!


So when I heard that this week was celebrating pancake day and peanut butter day, I decided to celebrate both them at once and maaaaaaaaake....


Peanut Butter Pancakes!

Ingredients:
1/3 cup buckwheat (or other) pancake mix - my savior on school days!
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons wheat germ
2 tablespoons peanut butter
3 tablespoon unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons almond milk


Directions:
Combine all ingredients together in a bowl and cook away!

Why are pancakes so good?


More pesto oats with steamed broccoli and carrots:

Awesome as always!  Another food that's awesome?  My Apple Spice Brown Rice baked!  Baking makes this dish 10x better!
Picture
Let's see.... What other munchies have I been enjoying lately?  Ah yes!  Yummy nummy green [purple] smoothies!  This one contained Greek yogurt, chia seeds, LOTS of spinach, blueberries, almond milk, and cinnamon.
Picture
I also tried this bread that I bought way back when I was in Hawaii!  It still isn't moldy - maybe because it was like vacuum packed?  There aren't any preservatives, but it's still kind of creepy...
Picture
Creepy but delicious!  Slathered in coconut butter:

For lunch I've been loving pesto sandwiches (simply pesto spread between two pieces of bread).  So simple yet my favorite sandwich ever!
Picture
Peeking in is some raw carrots, fresh tomatoes, and steamed broccoli/cauliflower/brussels, fresh mango, and Endangered Species 88% dark chocolate (I switch between that and Baker's 100% each day).


And this is my latest obsession:

If you haven't tried banana chips yet, you must!!!  WAY too good!


And, another recipe!  Behold, pesto and chickpeas combined to form:


Pesto Chickpea Enchiladas

Ingredients:
2 corn tortillas
About 2 tablespoons pesto
About 1/2 cup chickpeas
Chopped onion
Enchilada sauce
Greek yogurt for topping (optional)


Directions:
Spray the bottom of a small baking pan with non stick spray and spread some of the enchilada sauce on the bottom of the pan.  Spread about one tablespoon of pesto down the center of each tortilla and top with about 1/4 cup of chickpeas on each tortilla and sprinkle on some chopped onion.
Picture
Roll up the enchilada and place, seam down, in the pan.  Repeat with remaining tortilla.  Spread some more enchilada sauce on top and place in a 350 degree oven for about 20 - 25 minutes.
Picture
Yet another incredible meal! 


And now I want to mention a few non-food related things (what did she just say?  NON food related?!)


So first, in chemistry yesterday, we had a yoga brain break!  We stopped class for about 5 minutes and our teacher led us in a sequence of yoga.  How awesome is that?!  I really think that yoga brain breaks should become a part of everyday class ;)  Honestly, I felt SO much more concentrated after the yoga!


Second, check out my really cool school project!
Picture
Yes, it's a mole falling down a waterfall.  There's the Moletnomah Falls (based on a falls in Oregon spelled Multnomah) and there's Mole T. Nomah (the mole) falls.  Did you get the pun?  I had so much fun with that project :)


The daily question:  Have you ever had a yoga brain break in school?  Which food picture above do you think looks the yummiest?


Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

That's so cool that you guys did yoga in CHEM class!! My chemistry teacher last year was just about the strangest man you'd ever meet...we would never have gotten to do that! All of these pesto recipes sound so great and I can't wait to try your enchiladas!! Don't worry about being behind on comments girl, I get temporarily behind like everyday too! :) (PS! Your hair's so much lighter then I was expecting in this pic!!)

I think the peanut butter pancakes look amazeballs.
i would like some RIGHT NOW! But i have to go to the gym and that would make for a crappy workout!
I'm also a big fan of banana chips - I usually make a trail mix with them!

How neat that your teacher let you all have a yoga break! I'd love it if my teachers did that. Chemistry and yoga should always go together. :)

Aren't banana chips amazing? They're even more disgustingly delicious with a drizzle of honey on them.

Think a situation where we want to travel a long way to eat food we like. Or if we drive in to a restaurant and we don't get tastier food. And also we have to wait for a long time after the order is placed. Online food ordering is a complete solution for these problems.

When it comes to different types of hot sauces being manufactured in the world today, the Habanero hot sauce is considered as an icon. Chili peppers are types of fruit plants that belong to the Capsicum genre and Habanero is regarded as the most hot and spicy pepper that comes from this genre. The Habanero pepper is small in size, appears in oblong or round shape and has small creases.
