I’ve always heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I wholeheartedly agree. I can’t stand starting off my day with an empty and growling belly. I will feel exhausted and I can’t focus when I don’t eat and let’s not even talk about my mood because I take “hangry” to a whole new level. I’ve always been that way. As a kid, my mom always stressed the importance of starting the day off right with a hearty breakfast. I was lucky enough to have a stay at home mom for the vast majority of my school aged life and she made us breakfast every single morning and back then I would grumble and moan and groan about having to get up 15 minutes earlier than I normally would have just because Mom wanted us to eat. Then I would go to class and hear some of my friends stomachs growling while we were trying to focus and learn, that’s when I realized that I might be losing a precious few extra minutes of sleep but overall my day was much better for it!
Now, Brandyn and I set our alarms early every morning so we can get up and make a hot breakfast and drink a cup of coffee together before we have to get ready and start another crazy day at the Pharm. We work together in a pharmacy and I won’t go into detail but pharmacy life is a rollercoaster ride all day everyday. It’s mentally and physically exhausting so starting our day off peacefully is necessary for our sanity and overall wellbeing.
All that being said, I ADORE breakfast food. Heck, I even love breakfast for dinner! We usually do bacon and eggs, sausage and eggs, ham and eggs… you get the idea. But I love pancakes and I’ve been on a mission to find a way to have pancakes every now and then without cheating on our low carb lifestyle and boy oh boy have I found a winner! This recipe is a must try for pancake lovers who are on the low carb train!
