Happy Egg Pancakes

We love eggs! Our eggs come from happy free range, drug free chickens, at a local Ontario farm. We cook our eggs in different ways, but we recently learned that there are benefits to eating raw eggs, specially the yolk. According to the Food Chemistry journal, the yolk has twice as many antioxidant properties as an apple! They are rich in carotenoid antioxidant compounds, which is why their color is yellow. We created an egg pancake recipe that we topped off with a raw egg yolk (see recipe below). If you buy your eggs from local organic farms, you should give it a try!
Below: Egg pancake topped with a raw yolk for antioxidants and a refreshing bowl of watermelon (drizzled with a little honey) for additional antioxidants and nutrients! Eat watermelon 20 minutes prior to eating egg pancakes.
