Yummy Breakfast Alternative - High Protein Pancakes

My high protein pancakes topped with 1/2 banana and no-sugar-added jam. Yum!
Are you looking for a high protein alternative to nutrient-lacking pancakes? I saw a recipe in Oxygen magazine and changed it up a bit. The taste was great -- although I'd add on fruit, sugar-free jam or sugar-free maple syrup to pump up the flavor.

You'll end up with 3 belly-filling pancakes for 240 calories. That's low enough to be able to add on fruit or sugar-free jam and keep it within a reasonable calorie count per meal.

Here's the recipe:

Are You Using The Recession As An Excuse To Eat Bad Foods? 12 Quick Tips To Eat Right

Quite a few people are blaming a poor diet on a bad economy. They believe that the recession is preventing them from eating right because food costs are high and that it's difficult to shop healthy in this type of situation. Eating healthy for many has become a very low priority in the face of increasing financial stress.

While this attitude is understandable, it's ultimately self-defeating. A poor diet contributes to poor health and with so much bad news everywhere it's vital for people to continue taking care of themselves lest they make a bad situation worse. A bad diet can lead to cardiovascular disease, obesity, strokes, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, strokes etc. while also putting a person at risk of getting cancer.

8 Reasons Why You Keep Falling Off The Diet Wagon

Tom Venuto is a natural bodybuilder, certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) and a certified personal trainer (CPT). I've learned so much from Tom through is e-book, Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle. No hype, no gimmicks -- Tom shoots straight from the hip, and tells you the truth about fat loss.
Clearly, we have an obesity problem in America and many other countries across our planet. Yet, I propose that we do not have a weight loss problem today. In case you’re confused at this apparent contradiction, consider these statistics: According to a study from Oxford University published in the International Journal of Obesity, within 3 to 5 years, about 80 percent of all ‘weight losers’ have regained the lost weight, and often gained back a little extra. According to research by the National Weight Control Registry, that relapse rate may be as high as 95 percent. For comparison, relapse rates for drug, alcohol and tobacco dependency have been reported in the range of 50-90%. This means that lots and lots of people have “successfully” lost weight. But not many have kept it off. Therefore, we don’t have a weight loss problem, we have a weight-relapse problem; we have a “not sticking with it” problem. Wouldn’t you agree?
