How to Create Pancakes for Health Nuts

How to Create Pancakes for Health Nuts

When trying to stay healthy, it’s hard to see other people enjoying delicious pancakes and other baked goods that you might refrain from eating. However, with this quick and easy recipe (not to mention delicious!) you can make pancakes that taste even better than other people and are far healthier at the same time.

The best part about these healthy pancakes is how simple it is. You only need three ingredients to make these pancakes.

1. 2 ripe bananas
2. 1 egg
3. 1 tablespoon of almond butter

To make this, all you have to do is mash the bananas in a bowl until most of the lumps are completely gone. Add a single egg to the bananas and mix it all together until it is a (mostly) homogeneous mixture.

      Your batter should look something like this. With this mixture, just scoop the size of pancake you would like on the pan (preferably using coconut oil!) and then watch as your banana batter turns into a delicious treat! Serve with berries (the bananas make them sweet enough already) or honey and you’re ready to go!

        Science Says Guitar Players’ Brains Are Different From Others’

        Science Says Guitar Players’ Brains Are Different From Others’

        There’s nothing quite like picking up a guitar and strumming out some chords. Listening to someone playing the guitar can be mesmerising, it can evoke emotion and a good guitar riff can bring out the best of a song. Many guitar players find a soothing, meditative quality to playing, along with the essence of creating music or busting out an acoustic version of their favourite song. But how does playing the guitar affect the brain?

        More and more scientific studies have been looking into how people who play the guitar have different brain functions compared to those who don’t. What they found was quite astonishing and backed up what many guitarists may instinctively know deep down.

        Guitar Players’ Brains Can Synchronise

        You didn’t read that wrong! Yes, a 2012 study[1] was conducted in Berlin that looked at the brains of guitar players. The researchers took 12 pairs of players and got them to play the same piece of music while having their brains scanned.

        During the experiment, they found something extraordinary happening to each pair of participants – their brains were synchronising with each other. So what does this mean? Well, the neural networks found in the areas of the brain associated with social cognition and music production were most activated when the participants were playing their instruments. In other words, their ability to connect with each other while playing music was exceptionally strong.

        Guitar Players Have a Higher Intuition

        Intuition is described as “the ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning” and this is exactly what’s happening when two people are playing the guitar together.

        The ability to synchronise their brains with each other, stems from this developed intuitive talent indicating that guitar players have a definite spiritual dexterity to them. Not only do their brains synchronise with another player, but they can also even anticipate what is to come before and after a set of chords without consciously knowing. This explains witnessing a certain ‘chemistry’ between players in a band and why many bands include brothers who may have an even stronger connection.

        This phenomenon is actually thought to be down to the way guitarists learn how to play – while many musicians learn through reading sheet music, guitar players learn more from listening to others play and feeling their way through the chords. This also shows guitarists have exceptional improvisational skills[2] and quick thinking.

        Guitar Players Use More of Their Creative, Unconscious Brain

        The same study carried out a different experiment, this time while solo guitarists were shredding. They found that experienced guitar players were found to deactivate the conscious part of their brain extremely easily meaning they were able to activate the unconscious, creative and less practical way of thinking more efficiently.

        This particular area of the brain – the right temporoparietal junction – typically deactivates with ‘long term goal orientation’ in order to stop distractions to get goals accomplished. This was in contrast to the non-guitarists who were unable to shut off the conscious part of their brain which meant they were consciously thinking more about what they were playing.

        This isn’t to say that this unconscious way of playing can’t be learnt. Since the brain’s plasticity allows new connections to be made depending on repeated practice, the guitar player’s brain can be developed over time but it’s something about playing the guitar in particular that allows this magic to happen.

        Conclusion

        While we all know musicians have very quick and creative brains, it seems guitar players have that extra special something. Call it heightened intuition or even a spiritual element – either way, it’s proven that guitarists are an exceptional breed unto themselves!
