Vegetarian, High Protein, High Fiber
¾ Cup water
3 Bananas, cut into ½ inch slices (see note*)
½ Teaspoon cinnamon
¼ Cup mini chocolate chips
Avocado oil spray or butter, for cooking
Maple Syrup or Honey, for serving
1. In a small bowl, combine the pancake mix with water. Mix well, until thickened and smooth. Sprinkle the banana slices evenly with cinnamon and press 3-4 mini chocolate
chips into each banana slice.
2. Over medium heat, spray a nonstick skillet with avocado spray or lightly grease with butter. Alternatively, you can use a pancake griddle if available.
3. Use a wooden skewer to dip the banana slices into the pancake batter, then transfer to the pan. Cook until golden brown on both sides, about 1 minute per side.
4. Serve warm with a drizzle of maple syrup or honey.
*Note: These pancakes work best if the banana is slightly underripe. The texture will be more firm, and not mushy after being cooked.
TIP OF THE WEEK
Whether you’re off to school this year or you have a child who is, learn how to stay safe this school year with these 5 tips to help you avoid getting sick!
Drink Lots of Water: Water helps your body to flush out toxins and helps keep you hydrated, so that your body can fight off any potential infection. Make sure to pack a water bottle in your school bag, to ensure you’re drinking enough water during the school day -- and add some unsweetened flavour drops if you find drinking more water challenging!
Take a Multivitamin: Being deficient in crucial vitamins and minerals can suppress your immune system, making you more vulnerable to getting sick. Taking an Everyday Multivitamin can help ensure your body is working it’s best! Available in men’s, women’s, and kids.
Pack Healthy Snacks: Fill your lunchbox with healthy snacks, made from fruits & vegetables! Fruits & vegetables are packed with Vitamin C and antioxidants that can help boost your immune system and keep your body working its best! Snack on gummies, bars, crackers, and bites made with real, organic fruits and vegetables!
Get a Good Night's Sleep: Lack of sleep can weaken your immune system, making your body vulnerable to germs and viruses. Ensure that you are turning off all electronics an hour before going to bed and getting a full 8 hours of rest. If you have trouble falling asleep, drinking a calming nighttime tea can also help you to relax and fall asleep sooner!
Carry the Essentials On You: Be prepared for school by carrying around hand sanitizer, and having Beekeeper’s Naturals Propolis Throat Spray on hand for when you feel that slight tingle in your throat starting.
