Fluffy Buckwheat Pancakes with Apple Butter

The easiest, healthiest, fluffiest pancakes I ever tasted. If you have whole buckwheat groats, an apple, and a blender, you've GOT this! The night I invented it, I lay wide awake staring at the full moon. I had just discovered that fine ground "flour" as we know it is neither healthy nor Paleolithic.

History of Breakfast, What Happened to Our Food?

By Jane Barthelemy.  In times of total uncertainty, we need to have a good laugh. What if you could trace our worst chronic diseases (and COVID-19 comorbidities) back to the discovery of the New World and industrialized food? Tongue in cheek, I'm not joking. This article examines the undeniable history of our beloved first meal, in light of world money and food addictions. Yep. Especially sugar. For sure, breakfast wasn’t always corn flakes or toast with jam. Nowadays, what we eat is determined much by personal habit, but at what cost?
