AFC Grass-Fed Whey Protein Oatmeal/Vanilla Fluffy Pancakes W/Bananas and Blueberries
Starting your morning off to a great, nutritious start with the most important meal of the day, breakfast, is an excellent way to be alert, full of energy, and ready to conquer the day. However, some of us make a really destructive decision each day. This decision is skipping breakfast! Skipping breakfast not only starves your body of necessary nutrients to power you through the day, but it also slows down your metabolism. Slowing down your metabolism will make it harder for you to burn fat and have adequate energy for the day. This is why eating breakfast in the morning is so important. Even if you have a small breakfast such as 3 boiled eggs, you will be fueled instead of empty. An analogy to help better explain this is, when your car runs out of gas, it WILL NOT move. But, if your car has gas in the tank it will move just fine. A car is a machine, and so is your body. Therefore, the same concept applies. Even if you don't want pancakes for breakfast, you can cook these pancakes, in advance, to have them at any time of day, for lunch, a snack, or dinner. Create your own routine for eating these delicious pancakes that best suits your needs!
