Dinner // Vietnamese sandwiches

Do you like Vietnamese sandwiches? I've only had them a few times, but never made them myself. Egan and I decided to give them a try for Sunday dinner. We followed the recipe/assembling at Oh Dear Drea blog.
I really loved the combination of flavors. (mint, sriracha, basil, pickled mango/radish/carrots, marinated tofu, lime, cucumbers) It was an easy meal and they were so good.
Another plus, all the colors! Just how I like my food---fresh and colorful.

Went to Nekter Juice Bar for acai bowls and fresh pressed juice. Utah, are you listening?

Breakfast // Pancakes with no syrup

We made pancakes one morning while I was visiting my twin sister in California and she didn't have any syrup. No problem, I warmed up some frozen berries, gave them a mashing, and drizzled some honey to sweeten it up.

Healthy Wholewheat Pancakes
adapted from Favorites cookbook
1 cup wholewheat flour (I used freshly ground)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon sucanat
1/2 teaspoon real salt
1 cup almond milk
1 egg
2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce

Combine all ingredients and mix. Bake on hot griddle.
