Outstanding Breakfast Options: Protein Power Pancakes

We have all heard the saying “eat breakfast like a king”. Why should you eat like a king, you ask?

The benefits are numerous:

  • Breakfast gets your metabolism revving, helping to burn more calories through your day
  • A quality breakfast provides much needed macro and micro nutrients- key for maintaining a healthy immune system as we approach cooler weather
  • Eating breakfast helps to keep blood sugars stabilized (and consequently hormones stabilized), better ensuring quality energy and sleep.

…and more!

Here are my top protein packed, energy fuelling, yummy –in- your- tummy breakfast choices:

  1. Protein Power Pancakes.

The reason I love these so much is that you get that warm, comforting pancake texture but without all the white flours and sugars. The flax in this recipe adds some healthy fat that helps keep you feeling fuller longer and the nutmeg and cinnamon bring an added sweetness while helping to naturally lower your blood sugar. This by the way is great for those trying to drop body fat.

Stay tuned next week for the next yummy breakfast choice!

Pair up these pancakes with a Vanilla Blueberry Bliss Smoothie!
