This week, being a GP, feels hard. I feel sad. I care about my work. I give my patients all I have. My colleagues are the same. But despite everything weโ€™ve done this past year, itโ€™s never enough. The GP bashing feels personal. Far from the clapping, itโ€™s wearing us down now.

Recipe: Blueberry-Walnut Pancakes

Grain-free, sugar-free and dairy-free

Do you miss seeing a stack of pancakes on the brunch table? Now you donโ€™t have to. These grain-free, sugar-free, dairy-free pancakes are the perfect guilt-free treat. Theyโ€™re easy to make, and the whole family will love them. Yum!

Ingredients

3 large omega-3 eggs
ยพ cup almond milk
ยฝ tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
ยฝ cup coconut flour
ยฝ teaspoon baking powder
ยฝ teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of sea salt
ยผ cup roughly chopped walnuts
coconut oil, for greasing the skillet (about ยผ cup)
1 pint fresh blueberries
ยฝ cup arrowroot
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and then add the almond milk, lemon juice, and vanilla. Whisk until well-blended. In a separate bowl, mix together the coconut flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt and arrowroot. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, ยผ cup at a time, while continuously whisking. Once combined, gently fold in the walnuts.
  2. Grease a large skillet and place over medium heat. Once the skillet is hot, use a ladle to pour 3-inch pancakes onto the skillet. Cook until bubbles appear, then flip. The pancake should cook on each side for about 2-3 minutes. Repeat with rest of the batter. Add a tablespoon or more of coconut oil to the hot griddle, as needed.
  3. Make a blueberry sauce by simmering the blueberries in a small saucepan with 2 tablespoons of water for 10 minutes before serving.
  4. To serve, place 3 pancakes on a plate and top each stack with the blueberry sauce.

[AD]I havenโ€™t eaten red meat for over 20 years and my choice for burgers has always been limited! But now @McDonaldsUK has launched a new plant-based burger which actually looks and tastes like the real deal โ€“ I couldnโ€™t believe it wasnโ€™t meat. My good pal and chef extraordinaire @GizziErskine and I went down to McDโ€™s HQ to find out more about the burger and were so impressed with everything we learnt. The McPlant has been co-developed with @BeyondMeat so it looks and tastes like meat and most importantly for me, the cheese tastes just like McDonaldโ€™s cheese! Itโ€™s a great option for both vegans and meat-eaters who are looking at having more choice. Youโ€™ll be able to try the McPlant at over 250 restaurants from 13th October ๐Ÿ’š #McPlant @McDonaldsUK
