I’m not kidding when I tell you that I never imagined myself eating this healthy. What’s even more incredible is that I’m feeling the best I’ve felt in a long time on a high FAT diet.
My energy is all the way up! I think clearer, my mood is positive and my sleep apnea has greatly improved. I’m 40 feeling like I’m 25 again. I’ve been loading up on vegetables and fruits (mostly berries & kiwis) and I’ve stopped consuming breads, rice and products with added sugar. My results are amazing and I will be showing my progress soon on a later post.
For now, I want to share one of my go to meals that I make every 2nd Sunday, my delicious Cinnamon Pancakes.
I generally have these with some fruit, light whip cream, syrup (Mrs. Butterworth’s– no sugar added) and bacon.
I eat 3 or 4 of the pancakes and never feel lethargic or bloated. I can probably have the whole portion and feel fine, but I always try to keep 1 or 2 for my daughter.
Each pancake contains about 245 calories and contain 9 grams of carbohydrates. I’m not on a ketogenic diet so my plan is to stay under 100 net carbs per day and under 60 grams of sugar so this is great.
If you follow a strict ketogenic plan, than this may not be for you.
As an added benefit to my fitness goals, this meal contains 11 g of protein per pancake. A healthy choice indeed and perfect to break fast.
Enjoy the recipe below, the nutritional facts are also listed. The prep and cook time is about 20 minutes.
Oh, and please do not try this or any new diet trend because some Joe Blow advertised it online. What works for me and them may not be right for you. Know your dietary limitations.
