1. If I have checks to deposit, I walk to the bank (20 minutes in each direction).
2. I walk to the grocery store. Then carry my groceries. Great for my arm muscles, too :)
3. If I have a drink with friends in the evening, I walk to the bar. Yup, that also means walking back.
4. I walk the dog. Wait, does that count? :)
1 1/2 cup self-rising flour
1 1/4 cup milk
3 tablespoon oil
1 tabelspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoon sugar
a little bit of ground cinammon
Put ingredients in a bowl.
Mix well until blended.
Let the batter sit for about 20 minutes.
Grease a teflon pan with very little butter.
Add a ladle of the batter, and fry for about 2-3 minutes.
Flip over and fry the other side. Repeat…
I serve them with honey, fig jam, and home-made chocolate syrup.
1. Shop well. Make sure you buy fresh produce, poultry, fish, dairy, eggs, bread, pasta, rice, etc. at least two times a week. If you don’t have fresh food in the house, you’ll have to resort to fast processed stuff.
2. Cook. If you don’t know how, then learn. Processed food makes life very easy for those of us who can’t cook. Home-made food, however, is better and tastier. It also doesn’t take that much time to prepare as the processed food companies want us to believe. A good dinner from fresh, unprocessed ingredients can take anything between 10 minutes to 4 hours. It all depends on how complex you want it to be.
3. Learn to make staples at home. Jar your own pickles. Make a chocolate syrup(for pancakes, f’ex) from scratch. Bake bread. It’s easy, it’s fun, it’s fresh and tasty, and it’s free from all the nasty stuff that the food industry puts in our food.
