Pancakes, Tuna Sandwiches, and Black Pepper Chicken
This week brings easy, delicious, healthy options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I absolutely love these buckwheat and banana pancakes, which I came up with when making breakfast for a friend who doesn’t eat eggs or dairy and doesn’t love wheat. I like the challenge of making super healthy food that doesn’t taste like it belongs in California in the 1970s. If my son likes them, then anyone will like them!

If you only buy one organic item, it should be the chicken. Cook with love! Make it great!
