I don’t think I’ve met anyone that doesn’t like pancakes. So far in my 25 years of existence, I’ve only met people that like pancakes. Probably because pancakes are delicious. They’re a great breakfast food! But conventional pancakes have eggs, dairy, or butter, which isn’t exactly healthy. So I made a delicious sweet potato pancake that is actually filling and healthy. It only has 6 ingredients too! The simpler a food is, the better in my opinion. This is also an oil-free version so it’s very low in fat, high in carbs and fiber. They might not be the regular fluffy pancake, but these are packed with nutrients.

Make this for breakfast, or a delicious snack! Best served in the company of friends or family. Food tastes better shared!

Sweet Potato Pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon Powder
  • 3/8 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 1/4 Cup Mashed or Blended Sweet Potato
  • 3-4 Tbs Coconut Sugar (Or sweetener of choice)
  • 1 1/4 Nut Milk of choice

Instructions:

  1. Mix the flour, cinnamon, and baking soda together in a bowl, set aside.
  2. Mix together the sweet potato, coconut sugar, and nut milk together (you can use a blender if you’re lazy like me)
  3. Mix both the dry mix and the wet mix until fully incorporated, best to use a spatula or wooden spoon to avoid over mixing.
  4. Heat up a non-stick pan and cook the pancakes on medium high. Wait for bubbles before flipping the pancakes. (If you don’t have a non-stick pan, just use a regular pan and put some coconut oil or vegan butter on the pan to prevent sticking)
  5. Serve with your choice of fruits, vegan syrup like rice syrup, coconut syrup, agave nectar, etc. You can also top it with vegan butter, nuts, seeds, etc. The possibilities are endless!

I hope you get to try this out and let me know how you like it!

 

Peace and love,

Tahooooooo || #PinoyVeganEats

#PinoyVeganEats, Learn, Local, Nourish

I live in the Philippines and there really aren’t that many vegan options here. We do have a lot of sweet vegan options though and a lot of them revolves rice., but that’s for another day and another post. This time I just want to talk about Taho.

What is Taho?

It’s pretty much silken tofu or tofu pudding with arnibal (Sweetener) and sago or tapioca pearls. If you don’t like sago, you can always ask them not to put any, and if you want more arnibal, you can also ask them to add more. This is usually served hot, but you can get it chilled also in some places like chinese restaurants, if I’m not mistaken. There are usually sold by a guy carrying this metal container carrying it on his shoulders. I should have taken a photo of him, but you can just google it if you really want to see it. If you’re in the Philippines and you hear someone shouting “Tahooooooo”, it means there’s a guys selling it walking by and you should grab a mug and buy some.

Is it Vegan?

Yes! Although if you get the chilled ones, you need to check and make sure they did not use any gelatine (aka something gross that is derived from animal bones. ew, right?). The hot one don’t contain any though so that’s safe for you to ingest!

Use a mug.

Since I am trying to live zero waste or at least as close to it as possible, I like to use my own container whenever I buy some taho. Although I haven’t had some in many months, but that’s usually how my family does it because they usually serve hot taho in a thin single use plastic cup. So I do advise that you use a mug instead if you can.

I’ve let some friends try this before who were visiting the Philippines, some people like it and some people don’t. It’s all a mater of preference. This is a popular breakfast option here in the Philippines because it is served hot in the morning. It’s quite hard to find it during the day time actually. If you find yourself in Baguio City, you can even get taho with Strawberries in the arnibal which is even better than regular taho in my opinion, so you should definitely give it a try!

 

Peace and Love,

2 1eI’m baaack!

Well, I never really left, but I was off for a really long time. I just lost inspiration to post, mostly because I was still a bit lost. I’ve been able to do some soul development though and I am excited to get back and start fully sharing myself. I’ve been doing a lot of rebuilding, and I am excited to share everything I can.

I started this blog because I wanted to help inspire people, help motivate people to start eating better and caring more for their bodies. As I went along on my own personal journey I learned so much about myself, although of course there is so much more to learn.
