Now in its final week, the month- long New Year – New You fat loss bootcamp is coming to a close this Saturday.
28 individuals are already showing signs of increased energy, and report feeling great on the programme.
This Saturday each participant will be weighed and bodyfat tested to see how much they’ve improved on the programme.
As part of the programme, we all follow a Wheat- free eating plan (as well as avoiding sugar, alcohol, caffeine and dairy).
Spelt, however is allowed on the programme and this makes a great alternative to Wheat.
With pancake day looming, I thought I’d post up this healthy alternative to this annual tradition.
Spelt is an ancient grain and basically a cousin to wheat which is what most of us are familiar with. The benefit of spelt is that it has a few more nutrients than wheat and it also doesn’t seem to cause the gluten intolerance that wheat does. Spelt is a great source of manganese, protein and fiber. It actually has more fiber than wheat. Manganese helps your body absorb other nutrients and spelt is one of the best sources of this mineral.
I buy my spelt flour at Infinity foods in Brighton, but most supermarkets are now stocking it too.
Why not give this recipe a go for breakfast tomorrow?
- 1 cup spelt flour
- Dash of sea salt
- 1 teaspoon. ground cinnamon
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 cup soya milk (or oat milk is fine)
- Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and combine with a whisk. Add the beaten egg and milk and mix until combined.
- Heat a pan over medium heat and melt some butter. Spoon batter onto the skillet and cook on the first side until bubbles form on top and they lose their shine. Flip over and cook for another minute or so on the second side.You can add mashed blueberries and banana for a delicious dish!Enjoy and be sure to share this post using the buttons below!
