I was just searching through the recipes here at SP and saw a recipe for pancakes with whole wheat flour and some reviewers said they were too heavy. Does anyone remember the great old-fashioned buckwheat pancakes? I see the health food store I shop at carries freshly ground buckwheat. They were my favorite when I was young. If anyone has a recipe, I would appreciate it (not the box mix, though).
I will keep searching and if I run across a great recipe I will let you know in case anyone wants to try these.

I love strawberries, cherries, all kinds of herbs, mushrooms!, zucchini, yellow onions, brussel sprouts (yum!), spinach, almond milk, and sushi!
This is a great thread, and can give us all some awesome ideas! Thanks ;)

My newest favorite health food is freeze dried apples. They seriously are sweet and taste like candy to me! Really, really good. I like the cherries and strawberries that are freeze dried as well, they have a crunch that reminds me of cereal and they are tart-sweet. Really yummy!

I never thought in a million years I would writing down this morning breakfast as a favourite meal, but here it goes. I have been having oatmeal with blueberries and banana and sometimes I will add walnuts, or some goji berries every day for about 2 months and I LOVE IT! I even crave it now!
My other favourite for lunch or dinner is spaghetti squash done up with tomato sauce, onions, garlic, mushrooms, diced tomatoes and zuchinni- YUMMY! It tastes better than the high carb pasta in my opinion.
I have to tell about my new favourite food. It is Goji berries. I have been buying them dried, and I add them to my oatmeal in the morning, or grab a small handful- 20 grams and enjoy! They are alot like raisins when dried. They are expensive -15 dollars (Canadian) a pound, but worth every penny. The antioxidants are HUGE! Up to 10 x that of blueberries! They are 1 of the most nutritionally rich foods. You can get it in many forms, athletes drink the juice. Do yourself a favour, give them a try!
Di, I finally found a bread recipe that works great for me... I was eating the other stuff but this is super yummy. There is no milk (or milk products) in it, and the only fat is from 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Send me SparkMail if you want it.
I overcame my spiritual obesity, now for the physical!
What I have been doing is deleting any cow products from a recipe and substituting canola or olive oil for butter and fresh or evaporated Goat's milk or apple/white grape juice or just water for the milk. I usually have to make some small adjustments to maintain the appropriate texture and consistency but I enjoy the experimentation. To get the sour cream taste I have found blending soft goat or sheeps cheese with some goats milk works well. It worked great in the Chicken Paprikas Gulyas Soup I made for a campout potluck this weekend. A lot of Hungarian and Indian foods have milk and cheese in them so up had to come up with something since I like them both. In "Alaska Sourdough" by Ruth Allman, the recipes mostly do not use milk products since they were developed when milk was a very rare and expensive commodity in Alaska. Another book I found at my local library was "The Milk-Free Kitchen, Living Well Without Dairy Products" by Beth Kidder. She developed her recipes after her son came home from his first semester away at college and told her he had gotten sick and the doctors at the student medical center told he was allergic to milk. She is very practical mom and her recipes and suggestions are also. There is also a listing of cheeses that are from cows milk, goats milk and sheep milk. It has been very helpful in making the changes in my cooking.
Well, I can give you the link to the recipe BUT it won't work for you if you're avoiding milk since the recipe calls for about 1/2 a cup of nonfat milk powder. For anyone else, I make this just as is except I leave out the cumin. Couldn't imagine why I'd want that for nutbutter sandwiches. LOL
To eat good for you and great tasting homemade food! Ok, so give on the whole wheat recipe that uses mostly whole wheat flour. I've been making my own bread to be able to avoid milk products, corn products and saturated fats! found a couple interesting cookbooks at goodwill, especially the one on alaskan sourdough by a born and bred alaskan lady who grew up there. Thanks di
I finally found a recipe for whole wheat bread that actually uses more whole wheat flour than white (2 1/2 cups to one)and isn't a brick! We've been inhaling that along with my homemade jam this week. the jam does have sugar in it but no garbage like HFCS and it's all made from fresh fruit.
