These pancakes are a nice low-carb alternative to regular pancakes. After bringing back the incredible book The Real Meal Revolution from our trip to Cape Town in 2014, I’ve been trying to reduce carbs for the entire family, including the children. I tried many different low-carb pancakes, and it took me some time to find the right substitute for wheat flour and still create something that the kids would eat. These pancakes here are my children’s favorites so far. They like them with a mix of applesauce and mango sauce and fresh fruits.
With Chili Con Carne you can never go wrong. It’s great as a midnight dish if you’re having a big party e.g. for New Year’s eve, and it’s also one of my kid’s favorite foods. All three of them like it very much, which does not happen often these days. I cook it almost every other week because it’s a good source of nutrition for their weekday meals and very easy and quick to prepare.

My kids are not big eaters in the early morning before school, but I always try to give them at least a little bite before they leave the house. A few months ago I had a conversation about healthy food with my oldest daughter Zoe (yes, she is already interested in cooking and asks a lot of questions about healthy food and junk food). That’s when we came up with the idea of starting the early mornings with nice smoothies, to also help the kids concentrate in school. When living in Cape Town we had a healthy little restaurant (Kauai) right next door and we often stopped by to get some delicious and freshly made smoothies. I couldn’t find anything similar in Luxembourg, so why not make our own smoothies at home to start the day?
