A healthy balance
I do my best to steer clear from too many processed foods, such as white sugars and oils. But I believe that we should not see food as something to be fearful about, so I just try to maintain a healthy balance, and if a recipe calls for sugars or oils, I try my best to substitute them with healthier alternatives, such as dates or coconut sugar and nut butters. But I think, in general, when it comes to food, it’s most important to receive it with thanksgiving. That’s the best nourishment one can get, in my opinion.
1 cup flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 cup almond or soy milk
3 tbsp cashew butter
3 tbsp date or maple syrup
1 cup blackberries
1 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp date or maple syrup

Place all pancake ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse until ingredients are well combined but not over mixed. Let sit for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, heat a nonstick pan over medium-low heat. If necessary, grease the pan with a small amount of coconut oil. Ladle pancake batter into the pan to form small pancakes. Cook for 2 minutes, then flip with a spatula and cook for another 2 minutes. Continue same process with remaining batter until all used up. Stack pancakes on a plate. Blend sauce ingredients and pour over pancakes. Top with more blackberries and decorate with mint leaves.
