Banana uplifting pancakes.
I’ve been out of it the past two days. Knowing that my cat was sick and I’d have to put him down was weighing on me hard, and still is. Easter was a blur, and yesterday I couldn’t do much more than lay on my couch, cry, and occasionally eat terrible foods. I don’t think a healthy food has passed my lips in two days, and I’m fine with filling my emotional void with food on extreme circumstances.
This morning I was craving something special. I skipped yoga as I didn’t sleep much or very well, and scoured the kitchen. Being sad also meant I haven’t gone foodshopping, and have limited food at my fingertips. What did I have? Plenty of super ripe bananas. I pulled out Vegan Brunch, halved the recipe, and enjoyed three light fluffy banana pancakes. The recipe was so simple and my pancakes turned out just right, for once.
Now I’m going to crawl back onto my couch, and just let myself be sad for the loss of my beloved cat, Sebastian. Yesterday was the hardest day I can remember in a very, very long time. He was such a sweet, affectionate, loving animal. It broke my heart to have to let him go so unexpectedly.
