Five years later, I give the oatmeal pancake a whirl
If you’re anything like me, blogs come and go in your reader. While I have a core set of about fifteen(ish) smaller blogs that I love to read regularly and comment on frequently (I try!), I’m also constantly adding new blogs to my reader. Some of them I end up loving, and they become a part of that core group. Some of them I read for a while, decide they’re not for me, and just move on.
I used to read a lot of the “big” healthy living blogs—you know the ones I’m talking about. But, over the years, and for various reasons, I began to drop them from my reader one by one. Some of them started to feel like one long product endorsement. Some of them seemed bored by their own content. And some of them I just didn’t really relate to any more.
In fact, the only “BIG” blog that I still read—and that I have always read—is Kath Eats Real Food—KERF, that is. She was actually the first “healthy living” blog that I started to follow—five, maybe even six years ago. It’s crazy to me that I’ve read this blog for so long—it’s probably crazy to Kath too that she has readers who have followed her through so many ins and outs of her daily life. Sometimes when I’m reading KERF, I feel like Jack Twist:
…because especially now that I have a baby, there are certainly better things that I could be doing with my time than reading blogs. But there’s something about KERF that I just can’t give up. It’s been this weird constant in my life for so long—wake up, make coffee, eat breakfast, read KERF—and for that reason alone, I love it.
This is ALL to say that five years ago, Kath posted a recipe for an oatmeal pancake that became a kind of internet hit, and this morning, I finally got around to making it myself. Me, late to the party? Never!
The recipe for Kath’s oatmeal pancake is here. I gave mine a little extra protein boost with an added scoop of vanilla protein powder, and it was delicious. Thanks, Kath!
Hope you have a great Sunday!
