a serious nor’easter is headed towards the city and it’s creating record-braking low temperatures, leaving me wanting to wear nothing but the warmest of attire. this sweater was part of H&M’s buy one get one free sale and is super fuzzy and perfect for a freezing monday. xoxo.
Food Fridays: Fluffy Low Carb Blackberry Pancakes
these are so easy to make. even if you don’;t have a lot of time in the morning, make them! unlike their carb-heavy counterparts, they’re loaded with nutrition and actually start you out on a great foot nutrition-wise for your day.
each medium blackberry pancake (makes 12) nets at 34 calories, one net carb, 1.4 fiber, 1.2 fat and 4 protein. here’s how to make them:
you will need:
2/3 cup atkins flour
three tablespoons stevia
four teaspoons baking powder (or soda)
1/2 teaspoon salt
one teaspoon cinnamon (or more)
three egg whites
one cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
two tablespoons flaxseed meal
1/3 cup ripe blackberries
1. combine all ingredient except for blackberries. mi well.
2. add blackberries and use the mixer to smash them. mix should be fairly watery and blue/black in color.
3. coat a pan with coconut oil spray on medium heat and depending on pan size, cook two to three at a time, slightly thinner vs thicker in terms of batter amount tends to work best. flip when you see bubbles forming on the surface.
4. coat with butter and/or sugar free syrup. for those on paleo, use organic maple. enjoy!

a month or so ago i went on a road trip upstate originally to go apple picking and ended up stopping at an alpaca farm and speaking with the owner, who uses the fur to create amazing sweaters. i learned that like cashmere, alpaca fur is incredibly soft, but more durable.
that makes it the perfect fabric to look for when shopping for a sweater made to last. this H&M one was a bit more expensive for the brand ($60) but it’s super thick and has an amazing fit. definitely a piece i’d recommend investing in this season. plus, its gray, so it goes with everything.
