How to Eat Breakfast

Oh, pancakes.  Oh, breakfast.  The best way to start a Sunday!

Now, breakfast may be the best meal of the day, and as health experts say, the most important meal of the day.  My logic is that breakfast is the best opportunity for healthy nutrients and tasty combinations.  Why not fully enjoy and know that tasty food is doing good in my body from the beginning :)  

For some reason I wake up hungry and ready to eat every morning.  Some people don't feel the same way and I do feel bad for them.  Maybe you get nauseous or you just simply aren't hungry in the morning, BUT...breakfast IS important!  Finding a way to sneak in some food in the morning may be a new system you need to get used to doing.  

There will be much more to say about breakfast, since it is my favorite.  I have learned for myself and from others that breakfast foods can be a challenge to make healthy.  But I love creating healthy ways to start my day and can't wait to share some of them with you.  Check out this recipe for pancakes and get cookin!

Banana Pancakes:

2 bananas, mashed
2 eggs
2 T. flour (I used buckwheat flour)
1 T. peanut or almond butter
1/2 t. baking powder
pinch of cinnamon
splash of vanilla extract

Blend all ingredients with a hand mixer, or use those muscles, and pour into pan!  Then eat some delicious and fluffy pancakes :)  Chocolate chips may be needed, and possibly a thin spread of more PB!


What are your favorite breakfast dishes?  What do you think about breakfast?

  1. Pancakes are my all time favorite! A year ago I started eating gluten free and have a great recipe (if anyone is interested). I always look forward to the weekends because that means brunch...lots of yummy food and all morning to enjoy it!

  2. Almond Flour Pancakes
    3 Eggs
    1 1/2 cup Almond Flour
    Cinnamon (To taste)
    2 Tbsp Honey
    1 Tbsp Water
    1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
    1/4 tsp Salt
    1/4 tsp Baking Soda
    Butter/Margerine

    Mix together ingredients and cook on a frying pan. I always like to add berries/banana/nuts if I have them on hand.
