Protein Pancakes & Balsamic Glaze

Eat like you love your body today!  Happy Valentines Day to everyone!!  Whether you are celebrating with you special one or your little kiddos like me you will likely have a choice of healthy versus not so healthy today.

I chose a healthier option today to show my body the love rather tear it up with too much sugar and fat.  Instead of topping the pancakes with chocolate syrup I opted for a delish balsamic glaze, yummy sweet and a little tangy!!

Our celebratory breakfast was Protein Pancakes with mixed berries and a Balsamic Glaze.

21 Day Fix Crepes

I am on day 4 of my 21 Day Fix Extreme and I already am missing my giant veggie loaded salads.  I decided I would swap my veggies in my morning egg for my lunch.  So I was stuck, what can I do for breakfast now?!  I still wanted my eggs for my filling boost of protein after my morning workouts.  The first thing that came to mind was CREPES!!    One problem typical crepes have lots of butter, milk, flour and eggs.  I decided I was going to attempt this 21 Day Fix approved concoction anyways.  The outcome…..AMAZING!!!
