Homemade Pink Pancakes with beet

Pink pancakes

First you will need to steam some beets and after they cool, you puree them in a food processor or get a can of beets and puree it in a blender if you want it to be faster. Don't get beets with vinegar added. :) You will need 1/4 cup of the puree and you can freeze the rest for later.

These pancakes are very healthy and a full protein meal.

Dry Ingredients

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup white four

1tsp baking soda or powder

1/4tsp of salt

Wet Ingredients

2TBS butter

1 egg

1 cup milk or buttermilk

2TBS maple syrup ( i didn't use any)

Ingredients to add later

1/2 cup of ricotta cheese

1/4 cup of beet puree

1tsp pure vanilla

1/2 tsp of cinnamon

Fresh or thawed frozen raspberries

Take the dry ingredients and mix them all together.

Melt the 2TBS butter in a pan or microwave and mix it with the wet ingredients.

Mix the wet and dry ingredients together until there are no lumps.

Add the beet puree, ricotta cheese, cinnamon and vanilla to the mixture. If it seems to runny then you can add a little more flour to make it like normal pancake batter.

Now using 1 tab of butter in your skillet, pour the batter in small amounts into the skillet. Once the tops bubble, slip the spatula under them and flip. Use more butter each time you add another pancake to the skillet.

After each pancake is done, put it on a plate and cover to keep warm. When all pancakes are finished cooking, add a dusting of powdered sugar if you like and sprinkle with the raspberries. They are delicious and melt in your mouth. I like mine with just butter, but honey or pancake syrup is yummy also. :)

GOOT: topical meds for healing colds, flu and skin ailments.

How to Fight Colds and Flu with Garlic Based GOOT

Garlic gives GOOT its healing power

Garlic has long been touted the king of natural healers. In the home remedy GOOT, garlic is used, along with coconut oil and olive oil to make a healing salve. This all natural salve has been used successfully to fight colds and flu. Each ingredient has the ability to fight infection. Together this trio creates a synergy that makes the powerhouse of germ fighting, healing GOOT.


Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Things You’ll Need:
3 TBSP coconut oil (heated enough to melt it)
3 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
3 TBSP minced garlic (about 3 to 4 good sized cloves)
Small blender or coffee grinder
small lidded jar for storage

Step1 Blend warm but NOT hot coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil and minced garlic in the blender or coffee grinder OR just crush and chop the garlic.

Step2 Strain this blended mixture into a small jar to remove any of the bigger pieces of garlic that didn't get blended in. Place a clean lid on the jar.

Step3 Place the jar of GOOT in the refrigerator and in about an hour it will be solid like a salve. Keep this refrigerated until ready to use.

Step4 Rub the GOOT onto the bottoms of the feet of the person who is sick. Put socks on the feet to keep the salve from rubbing off on furniture or carpet. Rub the GOOT onto the chest of a person who is coughing. Keep warm clothes over the area that has the GOOT on it. Rub the GOOT onto the neck of a person who has a sore throat or strep.

Step5 Continue using the GOOT until the person reports feeling better or is no longer displaying symptoms of cold or flu. People have reported feeling some relief from cold and flu symptoms after the first use of GOOT.

GOOT can also be used for rashes, stings, burns, bites, earaches, hemorrhoids, yeast infections and just about anything you can think of that calls for medicine. Its safe and works wonders. You can put it anywhere and i do mean ANYWHERE on your body. :)


You may want a second person to help you put socks on children after you slather goot on their feet. The GOOT turns to liquid when it touches skin and can be messy.

GOOT should be labeled and tossed after 2 weeks. Keep in fridge.
