Today, my best friend from Germany sent me these wise words from Ratan Tata's Lecture in London, which I found very inspiring and want to share them with you. πŸ’«πŸ™Œ
οΏΌπŸ‘‰1. Don't educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be Happy. So when they grow up, they will know the value of things, not the price.
οΏΌπŸ‘‰2. "Eat your food as your medicines. Otherwise, you have to eat medicines as your food."
πŸ‘‰3. The one who loves you will never leave you because even if there are 100 reasons to give up, he/she will find one reason to hold on.
πŸ‘‰4. There is a lot of difference between "human being" and "being human". A Few understand it.
οΏΌπŸ‘‰5. You are loved when you are born. You will be loved when you die. In between You have to manage...!
πŸ‘‰6. If you want to Walk Fast, Walk Alone..! But if you want to Walk Far, Walk Together..!!!
πŸ‘‰7. Six Best Doctors in the World

It is about layers! πŸ‘†πŸ₯žπŸ˜‹ Kicking off our long weekend with a stack of vegan gluten-free buckwheat and oat pancakes, layered with raw raspberry chia jam and banana. Served with frozen coconut yoghurt and passion fruit. And of course, finish off with a drizzle of maple syrup. πŸ‘Œ The recipe is below if you want to give it a try. Happy weekend!
:::
1 fax egg (1 tbsp flaxseed meal + 2 tbsp water)
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 Tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp natural almond butter
pinch salt
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup oat flour
1/4 cup buckwheat flour
:::
1. Mix flaxseed and water and let set for a minute or two. Then add melted coconut oil, maple syrup, almond butter, baking soda, baking powder, salt, vanilla extract and whisk to combine. Add almond milk and whisk again until well combined.
2. Add oat and buckwheat flour and stir until just combined. Let batter rest for 10 minutes.
Lightly grease your frying pan with coconut oil and pour 1/4 cup of the batter onto the frying pan. There should be 6 pancakes. Flip when bubbles appear in the middle and the edges turn slightly dry, being careful not to burn.
Cook for 1-2 minutes more on the other side. Serve with strawberry, raw raspberry chia jam, banana slices, coconut frozen yoghurt, passionfruit, a light drizzle of maple syrup, or whatever else you like.
