On Monday I started a week long detox, eating just fruits and vegetables. The first few days was hard, I saw meat and bread everywhere I looked. It was especially hard when I walked by a bakery, with these awesome smells coming from inside! But last night I was thinking you can actually live eating only fruits and vegetables, not hard at all. I mean I set this goal for myself and I´m sticking to it, although if I wanted to I can stop it any time! Nobody asked me to do it.
I started it because I felt so bloated, tired and stressed. I made a sauerkraut soup on Tuesday and it´s been a little bit of a struggle since Rob is eating yummy meatloaf for dinner 🙂 I´m so proud of myself. yay! After only a few more days, I see the difference already!
Here is what I based my detox on DETOX
Anyways, back to the pancakes! A few weeks back I made these awesome Japanese pancakes. I had never put vegetables or anything salty to my pancakes before so it was so exciting, I couldn´t wait for them to be ready so I can taste them!
O-konomi-yaki – the name comes from the word okonomi, meaning “what you like” or “what you want”, and yaki meaning “grilled” or “cooked” so basically you put whatever you like in your pancake. But shredded cabbage is the main ingredient!
1 cup flour
3/4 cup chicken stock
2 cups of chopped cabbage
2 slices of salmon
6 slices of bacon
1 cup of crushed spinach
Whisk together flour, eggs, chicken stock and pinch of salt. Mix. Add cabbage, salmon, bacon and spinach.
Recipe said to serve with mayonnaise and tonkatsu sauce. I was not very fond of this sauce. I did it for the first 2 pancakes to see if it adds something special but the rest I ate without a sauce or mayonnaise and it was much better!
