This week’s Friday’s Find makes this Smoothie Queen very happy.  Not only is it made by a company that I already love, but it opens up flavor options without added sugar.  I love So Delicious Coconut Milk, but I usually purchase the unsweetened version to avoid sugar.  I have to admit that I do look longingly at the Vanilla, because it is truly sooooo delicious.  In coffee, over cereal, in smoothies, it’s just wonderful. But since I’ve cut out sugar, the vanilla sweetness has been but a lovely memory.

Until now.

This week I happened to see a carton of So Delicious Sugar-Free Vanilla Coconut Milk at Whole Foods.  While I was thrilled to see that it didn’t have cane sugar, I took a good hard look at the ingredients hoping that I wouldn’t find artificial sweeteners instead.  I was glad to see that it is sweetened with stevia and monk fruit.  Sweet!  Tempted to fill my cart, I decided to take just one box and see how I liked it first.

So yummy, and healthy too!

Despite the name, buckwheat is not wheat, it is actually  a pseudocereal, in the same category as amaranth and quinoa, and a great way for non-gluten eaters to get fiber and whole grain into our diet.

Buckwheat is commonly used as a staple in the cuisines of Japan (soba noodles), Korea, Northern Italy, Eastern Europe (kasha), and Western France (savory crepes)*.

This recipe is a great alternative to regular buttermilk pancakes and gives it a healthy spin and an earthy flavor. (more…)

It's fun to make pancakes into the shape of pumpkins! Photo: A. Fothergill

If you live in the Bay area, you know pumpkins are in great abundance in the fall. Even if you don't roast them yourself, pumpkin-themed recipes are as ubitquous to the bay area as clam chowder is to New England. To figuratively put the frosting on the cake, if you are eating gluten-free, don't worry, this recipe is easy and delicious. Get out the cinnamon and the cloves...it's time to make pancakes!

Gluten-Free Nutty Buckwheat Pancakes

They have a pleasing aroma, brown color, and a hearty bite. Buckwheat is famously healthy, strengthening blood vessels and supplying essential vitamins and minerals. Note: buckwheat is not a grain or a member of the wheat family. Rather, it is the seed of a vegetable and belonging to the rhubarb family. Early settlers named these nourishing, native seeds 'buckwheat' because they could be used like wheat when ground into flour. (more…)
