Mmmm Syrup

So today for lunch, I made multi-grain cranberry and banana pancakes. For the first time ever, we used REAL maple syrup. I had not really thought much about the traditional pancake syrup I usually buy (Hungry Jack), but when I read the label, the first two ingredients were corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup. Yuck! So last night on our weekly grocery trip, we picked up some real, organic maple syrup that actually came out of a maple tree in Vermont. It was of course much more expensive than the processed variety, but well worth it. It tastes much better too! And you only have to use a very small amount. Now this is not to say, that I am promoting putting maple syrup on everything we eat. It does contain sugar, and it shouldn’t be used too often, BUT it’s so much healthier than the processed variety. So, in summary, we are slowly but surely making better food choices. Tonight for dinner, I will attempt a tofu scramble, which is basically tofu mixed up with a whole array of veggies, like you might do with eggs. We’ll see how that goes!
