Spelt Flour Banana & Blueberry Pancakes

Spelt is ancient grain, from the same family as wheat, barley, and rye. With the rise of industrial agriculture and efficient farming, wheat has become our grain of choice.

For general health the spelt grain is also more water-soluble than wheat, which makes it easier for the body to digest. Due to the many minerals and vitamins spelt contains, it can help regulate metabolism, increase circulation, improve the immune system, lower blood sugar, and reduce bad cholesterol levels.

These Pancakes are light fluffy and extremely moreish. If you wish to make the savory version of these all you need to do is leave the banana and blueberries out of the batter.

GRILLED SARDINES WITH TOMATO SALSA

One of the most underrated and overlooked fishes out there! you don't usually find these on top of the menu at your local restaurant or even in the chilled fish section in your local supermarket. Sardines are easily accessible in the canned fish isle in the supermarkets however the fresh are sometime not so easy to get hold of. They can be bough in the local fish mongers or fish markets.Sardines do not contain as many toxins and metals as large predatory fish, such as tuna and swordfish. Similar to salmon and Mackerel sardines are high in omega-3 fatty acids which play a major role in controlling heart disease by helping break down bad cholesterol in the body.
