Being healthy doesn’t mean going without your favourite foods, it just means getting creative. Think of any favourite food and there is nearly always substitutions you can make to take it healthier. Take our crepe recipe for example, using wholegrain flour. Wholegrain crepes can be served at breakfast with honey and cinnamon or can became a nice main dish with differentÂ filling such as our ricotta cheese and green onion recipe.
1 cup whole grain flour
1 ½ cup of water or low fat milk
½ teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon canola oil or olive oil
In a medium sized bowl combine the flower, salt and water and mix well until it gets in a liquid and homogeneous state creating a batter. Heat the fry pan and grease lightly with oil. Pour in 3 tablespoon ( or 1 small ladle) of the crepe batter, rotate the pan to spread across the pan and make it even. Once small air bubbles come to the surface flip to cook the other side. Make as much crepes as you can. If you are having a hard time keeping the batter together, add 1 egg to the preparation to make the batter more workable for you.
