Eating healthy + a Low Carb Pancake Recipe!

Eating healthy just got easier for us! Earth Fare is opening a nice big store in our town. It's always been our favorite place to shop in Asheville and now we have one here! YAY! We are SO excited!

We love their 'homemade' soups and bread...and organic produce...nuts and dried fruit...oh and cheeses! Well, we love everything they sell!


 Lots of articles in our local magazines this month.
 And now for the Low Carb Pancake Recipe! I have Christine at Preferably Prim to thank for this recipe. So go there to see the beautiful photo she took of hers. Mine are still on the griddle and they didn't spread exactly round like hers! haha!


You use one egg, one banana and one tablespoon of flour...that's ALL! She gives the directions for mixing it together HERE! They did not give me a sugar rush at all! I ate mine hot with butter on top (no fruit) and they were delicious! I've made them a 'few' times now, Christine! Thanks!

I’m joining Thankful Thursdays.

That is great to have that store that you like open up by you. It's so nice to shop for healthy foods. I will have to try that pancake recipe out since it looks so easy to make. Hope you have a great day.

Hello, the store sounds awesome. Something like the Trader Joe's here?

The pancakes sound yummy, I love bananas. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

Karen Ann said...

Hmmm.. might try that pancake recipe! Thanks for sharing...

Good Morning! How nice to have this store near you. Thanks to you and Christine for the recipe. Always nice to try something new and especially if it is healthy. God bless you both today. xoxo

I've never heard of Earth Fare, but it sounds like the kind of store I would like to go to. The pancakes sound so easy and so good. I'm going to try them.

Eating good food is very important for health. Interesting pancake recipe - I've seen similar ones, but I have never tried them.
Have a wonderful day!

We loved shopping at Earth Fare when we lived in Arden. Enjoy your store!

Linda said...

Eating healthy becomes a way of life. Other than craving salt, my diet is a pretty healthy one. Now I can't say the same for Louis Dean and he is a heart patient and should REALLY be eating healthy!

NanaDiana said...

I make those, too, Diane. I always use a heaping Tbsp of Bisquick because I don't have self-rising flour. They don't have to look pretty to taste good, you know!!! lol Have a wonderful week. We are wading through rain here. xo Diana

Vee said...

I have no idea of this store, but it sounds great! The pancakes sound interesting.

Betsy Adams said...

Your pancakes are similar to the ones we make. Ours are made with pumpkin (instead of banana).... No flour at all in ours...Delicious!!!! Think I'll try yours sometime... Thanks!!!

Never heard of Earth Fare... Maybe there is one in Knoxville --but definitely not here in our small town!!!! I need to check it out and see where one is...

Sounds like you both are doing well---getting exercise and eating healthy.... PROUD of YOU.

Hugs,
Betsy

I didn't know EarthFare started in Asheville. Sure took a long time to get to our city. I can imagine how you will enjoy having one nearby!

Christine said...

Hi Diane! So good of you to share the recipe today! It remains one of my favourite quick meal ideas and I'm thrilled you've benefited from them too!
Your new foodstore will be so good!
Hope you are both doing well.
Hugs and thanks!

Susie said...

Diane, I am not a lover of pancakes...but honestly these sound so good. I think I would like them. I'll give it a try. :):) Hope you and your sweetheart are feeling great. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

The food store sounds wonderful! They must be doing well if they opened back in '75. Your pancakes look good :)

Cherdecor said...

Earth Fare sounds like a great store! I was excited about the pancakes until I read down the ingredients to flour. I am gluten intolerant so I cannot eat flour. It sounds like a delicious pancake.

happyone said...

Those pancakes look really good. I'll have to give them a try. I LOVE pancakes and have them often for breakfast.

Dianna said...

I've not heard of Earth Fare before...I know...I lead a sheltered life. :) But it sounds like a lovely place to shop for good wholesome food!

Your pancakes look so good! I'll have to check out Christine's site to see about the directions for mixing, etc. We love a good pancake.

Linda Walker said...

Hi Diane,
My daughter has been making these (actually without the flour) and loves them. I enjoy them too! Lucky you!! getting a new store. I am not familiar with Earth Fare but sounds like you've shopped there before and like it! Hope all is going well!

Michelle said...

I have been eating low-carb and feel much better for it! I will be trying these pancakes. Thanks for linking up today and have a great weekend!

Stacey said...

I have seen this recipe before and it looks yummy. We love pancakes at our house but admit to soaking them in butter and syrup. We've been losing weight here so maybe your recipe is what we should do.

ann said...

We do not have Earth Fare here, but it sounds like a great place. Lucky you.

Gina said...

Diane, wow- those ingredients make sense and are simple to throw together. I'm afraid I'd add syrup tho. xo

Rose said...

I want to try that recipe!

Happy that a store you love is coming nearby.

Marilyn @ MountainTopSpice said...

What an easy pancake recipe! I will have to give that a try, how nice to eat a pancake without the sugar rush! And I've never heard of Earth Fare but it sounds like a marvelous place to visit and eat!

Deborah Montgomery said...

Sounds good -- I love pancakes, so I guess the healthier the better!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I absolutely have to try that recipe.... wow.
