I’m sure most Americans have heard by now – its National Pancake Day at the International House of Pancakes. That means free food comprised of a lot of flour and a small amount of eggs and dairy, topped with sugar.
Here’s my favorite pancake.
It’s a Frittata – baked in a cast iron pan. This is 3 days worth of breakfast.
I always start with a base of sautéed vegetables. I use mixed peppers and onions and then add a green – either spinach or kale.
Once the vegetables are softened, I remove from heat and add 9 eggs. You can also add some cooked bacon or other meat, and cheese if your program allows dairy.
Then bake for 30-35 minutes at 375 degrees.
Starting the morning with a good dose of protein and a serving of vegetables is a great source of energy or recovery from early morning exercise.
