food as medicine.

The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.

– Thomas Edison

food is powerful.

If you are looking to change things up for breakfast, try these sweet potato pancakes! Subtly sweet and a great grain free alternative. Since I am feeding 3 growing boys, finding clean burning carbs is something I am always looking for.

Serves 4

  • 16 oz. (450g) sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into cubes
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • ¼ cup (30g) walnuts or pecans, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup

What you need to do

  • Cook the sweet potatoes in a pot of boiling water for around 15 minutes. Then drain and let it cool.
  • Place the cooked potatoes in a high bowl, add the eggs and cinnamon, and blend with a hand blender until smooth.
  • Heat ¼ tablespoon of the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and add 3 portions of batter (around 2 heaped tablespoon per pancake). Fry the pancakes for about 3 minutes until golden brown and done. Turn halfway and repeat with the remaining batter.
  • Divide the pancakes onto plates (3 per serving), sprinkle with the chopped nuts and drizzle with maple syrup, to serve.
