life is messy kitchen- banana pancake recipe
You see these Banana Mama pancakes up above? Well they are a reward for this MAMA and best of all from Mayi Carles new book, Life is Messy Kitchen!!!

I should share that I am NOT a morning person this wasn’t always true but it is very true now that i’ve become a MAMA. I wanted changed and so this year I set out  to make 2 things right; own mornings once again and get in the kitchen to make new dishes! I have to tell you it hasn’t been easy and most days I skip breakfast because by the time i’m done getting kids off to school it’s 10mins ’til noon! 

Today was different! I woke up at 645am! Got dressed and went straight to the kitchen. I had my heart set on Banana Mama Pancakes because I love banana’s and I love pancakes. I also wanted to try the Infused Strawberry Sauce from Life is Messy Kitchen to go with them! YUM!

life is messy kitchen- berry sauce

The strawberry sauce turned more into a berry sauce as I used a mixture of berries in place of the fruits and other ingredients the recipe from Life in the Messy Kitchen called. It was delicious!

I had a successful morning to say the least and while busy as a bee in the kitchen and getting kids to their school bus on time my belly was full and happy!

So let me share why Mayi’s newly released book is important to my goals. The reason getting up early and getting in the kitchen became goals and priorities is because my healthy lifestyles haven’t been the best. When I would read Mayi’s blog Heartmade Blog she’d always share about her family’s love for smoothies and delicious flavorful snacks that were actually full of nutrients. Life is Messy Kitchen is an opportunity to try new things that encourage happy and clean eating!
