NOM. Serious, serious NOM action going on today.
So, I discovered this recipe on YouTube, but I forgot exactly where I got it from. Whoops. If y’all know, give me a heads up!
Anywho, YouTube has become my go-to for healthy meal ideas as of late. There are so many clean-eating food gurus sharing all of their favorite recipes, & I’m addicted to watching all of them! I’ve found a gazillion channels dedicated to gluten-free/vegan/paleo/vegetarian/etc. lifestyles, and how to eat like a queen while living them.
If you’re looking for easy healthy meal ideas, you gotta go to the Tube, man.
Today, I’m sharing these versatile, 5-ingredient “crêpes” that I fill with different things for breakfast, lunch, dinner & dessert. They’ve been an H+H snapchat favorite for a few months now, & I finally got my life together enough to shoot & share!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
3/4 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
1/2 Cup Water
3 Tbs Applesauce
1 Cup Gluten-Free Flour ( or Whole Wheat if you’re not GF! )
· Combine almond milk, eggs, water, & applesauce in a medium/large bowl.
· Mix in flour.
· Let sit in fridge for at least an hour.
· Pour into a thin layer on oiled pan, & let cook. Flip to other side when set.
· Fill to your liking!
Usually, I make the crêpe batter, store it in an air-tight container & use it up over the span of a couple days for different meals. That way, you’ll always have something sitting in the fridge for ya when you’re hungry.
I fill my b-fast crepe with eggs, and I usually add spinach, bell peppers, onions, and cheese to them. Then, I top with avocado & hot sauce.
I’ll wrap my lunch crepe up with cheese & turkey, and sometimes I’ll add spinach, mustard, & pickles. Like a sandwich, basically. Always add avocado on the side, of course.
I’m a fruit maniac, so I’ll always throw some fruit in my dessert crepe. Line the crepe with peanut/almond butter, melted dark chocolate, or nutella, then add your fruit. Top with a little whipped cream, extra chocolate, more fruit, & cinnamon.
Another idea could be to fill the crepe with ICE CREAM ( Halo Top has super light flavors! ) & top with whatever goes with your flavor choice. OMG. Yes.
For my dessert crêpe pictured, I just filled it with mixed berries ( frozen & heated in the microwave ) & topped with whipped cream. It took maybe 1 minute to create.
Clearly, I’m most excited about the dessert crêpe, because omfg.
I’m really into these babies because, as a pastry-fiend, living a gluten-free life has really killed my vibe. Bakeries are my THING ( even though they always made me feel like total ass after, it was usually worth the pain).
These GF crepes are SO glorious, & I don’t feel like I’m really missing out on anything. Score.
PS– I keep telling myself that I can eat gluten ( because I’ve never been tested for it… I can share my going GF story if y’all wanna hear! ), & I’ll do something like eat a whole pizza ( this might’ve happened a few days ago… idk ) and think I’ll be fine.
I inhaled a whole pizza in one bite on Wednesday, & I STILL feel so, so ill today. My migraine has yet disappear, and my stomach is in knots.
FUCK THAT. No more gluten. I need to stop my little moments of denial. That’s the first stage of mourning, right? Mourning my old, gluten-filled life. LOL.
Welp. That’s it for today, y’all. I’m off to happy hour in Santa Monica with my babes. What are you people up to this weekend?
As usual, come hang on snapchat: payton_sartain. TTYL.
