A few simple tips to cook healthy pancakes, to reduce their caloric content, but keep the traditional taste. And maybe even improve1. Alternative to milk
Eating large amounts of dairy products can cause increase of cholesterol. In addition, milk contains the protein casein in bound form as a calcium salt. this protein is poorly absorbed by the body and as shown by "the China study" Dr. Colin T Campbell, and excessive use increases the risk of tumors and cancer.
Pancakes can always be prepared in water or any plant milk — almond, rice, soybean, poppy, coconut, etc., which can be cooked at home.2.Less sugar and salt.
Pancakes are often eaten with toppings or sauces, so the amount of sugar and salt can be reduced significantly, but we often forget.
Adding spice to recipes, the desire to "needs more salt" dish is always reduced. In savory pancakes put turmeric, cumin, herbs, red or Cayenne pepper for spice and aroma.
Refined sugar stimulates the growth of fungal and yeast infections which in turn cause the toxins and excess weight. Against the background of a weakened immune system develop allergic reactions, impaired production of stress hormones, chronic stress provokes a new round of infections.
Baking sweet pancakes, you can use natural sweeteners that are not afraid of high temperatures, stevia, dates, prunes, bananas. Honey can be added as toppings to the finished pancakes because honey cannot withstand high temperature.
3. The flour is gluten-free.
To make the pancakes light for digestion, will help alternative to wheat flour — gluten free flour (b/g flour). Now in health food stores buckwheat, rice, soy, linseed, coconut, soy, chickpeas, quinoa or amarata and their blends for every taste and budget. The excess of gluten in the diet causes a feeling of heaviness and flatulence, allergies, clog the intestines.
In addition, ordinary wheat flour or other variety is devoid of virtually all of the useful properties of grain and only contains fast carbs, and therefore no vitamins and the risk of extra pounds.4. Without baking powder and yeast.
Crepes out of mineral water that will eliminate the need to store baking powder. Puffy pancakes with holes will because of homemade baking powder (soda+citric acid).
Yeast getting into our blood, eat our vitamins, minerals, proteins. And at the same time, they excrete their waste products – toxins. I.e., the parasitic yeast in our body.

Cooking pancakes is meditation and creativity!
If, during cooking, we think about work, problems and a thousand other things, in the end, here burnt there too... And the food turns out "empty" and not so tasty, because you are mentally not present in the process of its preparation.
