Gluten-Free Pancakes

Here’s what my nutritionist friend said, Dorothy., about getting your body back to normal after taking steroids. Nothing to do but continue eating healthy.

I asked, “Hi Dr. T,  What do I need to take after a steroid prescription for my body to come back to normal?  Probiotics and potassium? I can’t find anything on a quick internet search.”

“Hi,

I would recommend drinking orange juice and eating other things that are high in potassium.  Such as beans, potatoes, bananas and other fruit.  It is very dangerous to be too high in potassium so I am afraid the supplements could bring you up higher if you are not monitoring your levels.  It is always safe to consume more potassium but not necessarily take the supplements.”

2 dates, soaked

1 T. cinnamon
1 T.coconut oil

Blend the banana to puree it. Mix in a bowl with the rest of the ingredients. The batter will be pretty stiff. I use a spoon to shape it into a pancake and smooth it out. The batter will keep in the fridge for several days.
Dehydrate for 4 hours at 105 degrees.

Orange Syrup:

Word/Phrase of the Day – Jugo de naranja – orange juice

Tip of the Day – You know what’s funny, is that my whole life I’m not interested in orange juice. It doesn’t go well with my body, even though the taste is so good. And these last two weeks, orange juice appeals to me so much! I must’ve needed it. So go with your body!
