HEALTH: Early Morning Madness

Dazzling rays of sunshine stream through your window. From somewhere within the depths of a vivid dream, the ringing of your alarm clock jolts you to reality. Another morning unfolds, and you’re quite sure it will be much like the rest; a hectic mess that leaves you with no time for breakfast. STOP! You may be in a rush, but skipping breakfast won’t help the rest of your day go smoother. In fact, studies have shown that eating a balanced breakfast helps improve your mood and energy level, as well as maintain a healthy weight.

Despite the morning hurry, take some time to have breakfast. Not a cereal and milk person? Here is a tasty recipe from Black Hills Health & Education Center, an OCI ministry in South Dakota. You can even make the crepes ahead of time and just heat them up. Enjoy!

Fruit Filled Crepes

2¼ cups water
¾ cup raw cashews
1½ cups whole grain flour
2 Tbsp. honey
½ tsp. salt
1. Place all ingredients in blender and blend well. Mix should be thin.
2. Add more water if needed.
3. Cook on non-stick griddle at 400 F degrees until lightly brown and turn over.
4. Do not over cook until crispy or they will not roll.
5. Pour about 2 Tbsp. fruit sauce in the middle and roll up.
6. Place in pan seam side down.
7. When all are rolled, pour a little sauce down the middle of the crepes and serve.
Crepes freeze nicely.
Makes about 16 crepes (8 servings)
