Thick Paleo Blueberry Pancakes

Pancake Saturday is now officially a thing in my house.

I think I’ve kept a streak going for about 6 weeks now. Each Saturday has been different as I’ve toyed around with buckwheat, vegan, plantains, bananas, even chia seed versions! These are the classic blueberry variety. No shame in keeping it simple. The simple recipes are the ones that endure the test of time. The kind you’ll find me making 5 years from now, 20 years from now, and hopefully 40 years from now for my grandkids.

Now, if you want it to be more fancy than a plain ol’ blueberry pancakes, just add TOPPINGS! Check out the picture below for my epic add-ons. Elvis would have been proud.

Not only do toppings make them fancy, adding a bit of lemon juice and almond extract lends a distinctly blueberry muffin-like flavor to this pancake. Grab the ingredients and make some this weekend for you and your family OR friends! (don’t forget a big ol’ slab of BUTTER!)

Pro Tip: use thawed frozen blueberries for better flavor and less moisture in the pancake!

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌶 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad 🥑🍋🌶🥒
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
