Amazing protein pancakes

These pancakes are great! 

Plan time to grocery shop after a vacation

We just came back from a trip to the U.S. Virgin Islands (I know, poor us).  While we made both our breakfasts and lunches on the trips, we splurged on dinners and I splurged on calorie-dense tropical drinks (I choose the lowest-sugar ones I could). We got home late, thanks to both of our planes…

Food closer to original form = better for you

So, both concluded that we’d be better off sticking to a food closer to it’s original form than one created through a highly lab-intensive process. SHOCKED, shocked I tell you! (sarcasm)

EXACTLY the amount of food I wanted

Originally, I…

Product Review: Met-Rx High Protein Pancakes

I found this Met-Rx High Protein Pancake Mix at my local grocery store and, despite the high cost ($20!), I decided to give it a try with my much-loved Cary’s Sugar Free Syrup.

Bad hypoglycemic low blood sugar drop, lesson learned

A couple of weeks ago, I went to brunch with a friend. We met around 10 am and I had a couple of breakfast tacos and some amazing french press coffee. I didn’t overeat, but was full. I was meeting my boyfriend at his house for dinner and he eats early (5:30 ish).  I wasn’t…
