t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


Apple "Pancakes"

My friend is seeing a nutritionist to lose a bit of the "baby fat" we all unavoidably struggle with. She gave me this recipe I love.

Apple "Pancakes"

4 egg whites
1/3 c rolled oats
1 apple (banana is great too)
dash of cinnamon

Throw it all in the blender and mix well. Pour into a pan and cook as you would a pancake.

You can either make one really big one, or a few smaller. If in the mood, put a teaspoon of pure maple syrup. I don't recommend sugar or "sugar free" syrups. Go natural. Delicious. High in protein and fiber. As a vegetarian I need all the protein I can get. I also have begun to cook with cast iron. It is heavy, and a little less convenient but you can actually pick up trace minerals like iron. A mineral crucial for runners and veggers like myself.
