Happy Monday morning!

First, regarding the lentil cake recipe – it’s in the Clean Eating magazine with the ice cream cookie sandwiches on the cover. Other than that, I don’t think I can post it online, can I? I’m not sure of all the copyright laws, etc. I know they have some recipes on their website, but I’m not sure if that one is up.

I know I’m having a redo of a breakfast I had last week, but I just wanted it so bad this morning!


Yup, I had cannoli-cakes again, with all the same toppings!


The amount was a bit different since I only had 1/3 cup of egg whites left, but it was still perfect.

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup egg whites
  • pinch salt
  • cinnamon
  • vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp or so baking powder


Cook in the pan then top with ricotta, peach, raspberries and a drizzle of local honey. Yum, yum, yum.

With all this ricotta, you would think I was Italian!

But I’m not.

I know that I’m American Indian, French Canadian (I think) and North Carolinian  đŸ™‚

Coffee is brewing and I’m working!

What about you? What’s your background / heritage?

I cannot stay away from these oatmeal pancakes!


I can’t remember now why I bought ricotta this week, but I’m glad I did! I love using it on my breakfast cookies, so I thought I would try it out on the oatmeal pancakes.


I love how ricotta just makes you feel like you’re having some type of danish or cannoli. The cinnamon and vanilla in the pancake batter went really well with the ricotta, fruit, and honey on top.


The pancake batter was my usual:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • pinch salt
  • pinch cinnamon
  • couple drops of Honduran Vanilla

After cooking the pancakes, I put about 2 Tbsp of ricotta on each one, topped with some peach + raspberries and drizzled about a tsp of orange blossom honey on top.


Yup, this one will happen again. I love the honey + ricotta combination!

I also ate the rest of my peach on the side and had 2 big glasses of water.


Next Honduras post at lunch! I had to finish some stuff up after my computer turned off on me last night and erased part of it  đŸ˜¦

How do you start off your day on a good note?

I try to have a big glass of water, no matter what, as soon as I’m up and out of the shower. I’ve found that if I don’t, it’s really hard for me to drink a lot of water during the day, but starting out with it makes me thirsty for it for the rest of the day.

I also listen to our favorite morning radio show and watch a little of the news to find out what the weather is going to be.
