Who does not love them? At least on weekends, pancakes for brunch are almost a must. Unfortunately, these sweet temptations are not exactly conducive to good health, as they are mostly made from wheat and various forms of sugar served as toppings.
Wheat and especially the gluten it contains are a problem for many even without celiac disease, even if often unnoticed. Gluten can promote inflammation in the intestines and strongly influence digestion, promoting chronic diseases along the way. Bloating, severe fatigue, and brain fog are part of everyday life for many and may be a sign of sensitivity to gluten.
In addition, wheat belongs to the empty carbohydrates as well as sugar. They cause our blood sugar levels to rise rapidly, but unfortunately also to plummet just as quickly. This process not only makes us tired, and everyone knows the low that they often have after eating, but over time can lead to chronic cardiovascular disease and, incidentally, robs our body of nutrients.
All of these factors contribute to the fact that we age faster and usually faster than we would like. But don’t worry, we won’t leave you with this little scare.
Of course, it is important to enjoy food and that includes pancakes.
