When looking at our skin and how we take care of it, we must consider it as another organ of the body that needs nourishing and keeping healthy. Did you know that, 60% of what we put on our skin from lotions and potions is absorbed? That's right!

So I did some research and found myself sitting, highlighter in hand, staring at 55 pages of legislation with multiple browser windows in front of me, growing increasingly frustrated that what I was reading was, firstly, hugely open to individual's interpretation and, simultaneously, so full of inaccessible language that I needed explanatory notes to understand it.

Introducing you to... A Flax Egg. The Flax Egg has been around for quite a few years and often used in gluten free baking. Ordinarily, we find that it is not the most ideal alternative due to the heaviness and sliminess - thankfully, this is just what we want in a pancake!

There's no exact measurement for the amount of ingredients here; mix and match whatever veggies you like, add some sprouts, rice noodles, shrimp, different herbs, etc. The beauty of these is using what you have on hand or changing it up with what's in season for different colours, flavours, and textures.
