As we mentioned we had a productive weekend working but we did enjoy some free time. Which for us means –> recipe testing! haha
Over the weekend we think we found our new favorite pancake recipe.
But wait — isn’t this picture of a waffle???
Yes. We were hoping for crispy waffles but instead these waffles reminded us more of pancakes. They had more of a pancake texture and flavor. If that makes sense. The texture of these waffles are nice and soft. Melt-in-your-mouth.
Nothing wrong with that though as we love our pancakes.
Making waffles is fun though.
Here is what we did:Print

Perfect with some goat kefir mush on top! We stirred in some coconut oil and psyllium husk into goat kefir to make a creamy topping for our pancake waffles. Not that sweet but we liked it. Learning to like less sweet things.
mmmm cannot wait to make these again
Moving onto some fitness happenings over the weekend.
We also tried a new yoga DVD that we finally ordered after loving Travis Eliot’s 30 minute yoga short and sweet DVD.
The Ultimate Yogi – Yoga cross training
It is an hour long yoga, but we only did 45 minutes. We were only planning on doing 30 minutes of it, as we were short on time, but we were enjoying it so we did a little bit more. We still managed to leave our yoga mat feeling strong, focused, relaxed and ready for the day! We look forward in doing this yoga from time to time. We really like Travis’s yoga style so we hope to continue to try out more of his yoga.
The other night we enjoyed a lovely dinner outside – grass-fed beef with plantain chips, turnips, arugula, coconut oil and black sea salt.
Simple balanced meal and oh so good!
And we could not end a blog post without mentioning runny egg yolks 😉 we love them especially with some plantain cake (a new recipe we filmed coming soon to purelytalk)
Shout-out time :
Plantain love is taking over the world 😉
Lots of plantain bread love.
The love of making our favorite gluten and grain free plantain bread continues.
xoxo we love you all
Have a wonderful Tuesday.
till next time,
