“It’s a Beautiful Day” (….for Ziggy Marley’s Pancakes)

Okay, Okay, I know, the world’s falling apart, but we still gotta eat….

…and we’re gonna get through this COVID-19 thing.

I admit, I’m an idealist at the core, and always find the positive in the negative….


Life is still beautiful, the world is still beautiful…though sometimes you have to look hard to find it…

…if you’re not sure where to start, start by looking at the beauty within yourself. (Note to Self: That was a great, original, spontaneous comment 🙂 )


It’s still “A Beautiful Day”, the title of one of my fav’ Ziggy Marley songs. (Ziggy is son of the legendary Bob Marley)


And now that I got most of my readers stuck at home, it’s a “Beautiful Day” to start cooking healthy for one’s self at home…

So I wanted to share Ziggy’s video recipe of Blueberry Pancakes…


Prepared by Ziggy Marley and his half sister, Karen, in the video below, ENJOY!!!



Also, as a bonus video, Ziggy and Karen make a coconut smoothie…

 

Ziggy Marley: “It’s a Beautiful Day”
(Live, House of Blues, Chicago, 1999)


(…You know me, any excuse to post one of my fav’ songs. Not that anyone cares, but I was actually at this show, don’t see myself in the crowd though, I was back by the bar. House of Blues was always such fun, Ziggy was Jammin!!! YA MON!!)

Hi Ja (Jeffrey Annes),

Then its a “Beautiful Day” for you!!!!

Sometimes I don’t need to write a complicated, overly scientific article to promote nutrition science. Like a good recipe, sometimes simpler is better.

Ziggy is so cool, you can see and hear his father in him……

Thanks for reading and commenting (and don’t forget, REAL MAPLE SYRUP ONLY!!!! 🙂 )

He Doug, as always another great post! Headed out for groceries(highlight of the week). I have been “slippin” with the food choices lately. Getting ready to nip that in the bud! Be safe/stay well.

Hi Ms. Lori,

Always great to hear from you. I get a little ego thrill I admit when someone writes in and appreciates something I put out.

So far as slacking off your diet, try not to worry about it, I think the subconscious sends signals when it’s time to get back on track.

But yeah, with the post, I just wanted to put out a little “easy reading” and positive energy to relieve the stress and anxiety of this COVID-19 thing. And Ziggy’s Rasta Jamaican voice gives that soothing, calming effect.

Thanks for another warm-hearted comment…

Hey Doug,
I love the part in your response ” the subconscious sends signals when it’s time to get back on track”. With that being said, organic chocolate covered almonds, HERE I COME! Stay well!

Hi Lori,

LOL!!

I grab a gourmet chocolate bar from Whole Foods (I love the Hazelnut and Sea Salt Chocolate) every weekend. I take almost zero sugar during the week so its my weekend treat…

…with no regrets and no guilt.
