Pumpkin pancakes are seriously some of the best pancakes you will ever taste. They are wholesome and filling and so moreish. This is a pancake everyone will love.
I have woken up tired today which is always a great feeling. Eye roll..I haven’t been able to get to sleep over the last few nights. I have been tossing and turning loads and in the interest of getting to sleep, i refused to pick up my phone/laptop/a book. I would love to say it worked a treat. I might as well have picked all three up at the same time and juggled them in the air. What a waste of a night.
As soon as I let a little sugar back in my life, i feel exhausted and i get a spot on my forehead. Why can’t it grow somewhere no one will see. Like under my armpit or summit. Why bro? By the way, from my posts people will assume I am some super healthy person. Actually I am at the very beginning of my ‘journey’ (Shoot me, I can’t find another word). I literally have one year to go before I get to my target and it will be a long process so please don’t be expecting some slinky, shiny person. As some would say.. it’s a marathon, not a sprint. I have a lot of cleansing, detoxing and healing to do. Don’t pick up your violin yet. I’m not a victim but I have been through a few things here and there, like most people my age. Things that are within my capacity to deal with and things that heave helped me to grow as a person. People who know my life story would say they are pretty major things but ‘there is always someone worse off.’ However because I didn’t deal with said things, they impacted on my health.
In my course, we learnt that emotions have a huge impact on health and I am not one to open up. Like most people I have experienced real sadness and instead of working my way through those emotions, I ended up bottling things up. Sooooo not wise or cool.
By the way sometimes I read my posts back and laugh my head off. I sound so much more intense then I am. Sarcasm doesn’t translate well in writing I am told. Yet I just insist on using it because it is as much a part of me as my legs are. Hi legs.
Anyway, I am going to make some pancakes now. Please excuse these pictures. They are so wrong. I apologise. Old pictures always make me jump back and we are working on updating them as we go along.
