Try these banana and honey buckwheat pancakes for breakky this week! I used buckwheat flour as it is more nutrient dense than white flour. Despite its name, buckwheat is not wheat. It's a seed, which means it is gluten-free and safe for people with gluten sensitivity.
It’s also the perfect ingredient for balancing the heaviness of kapha tendency that sets in at winter-time, so is a great pantry item to have on hand when you are craving things like pancakes. Kapha dosha is increased in cold, wet and soggy weather conditions and should be monitored as we approach winter. Signs are heavy head, runny and blocked nose and ENT, fatigue.
When I feel like a healthy savoury breakfast this Sri Lankan lentil dish is always perfect, and hits the spot served with spinach and wholemeal pita. It’s not uncommon to have lentils for breakfast in South Asia and my version took about 10-15 minutes to prep and cook.
