More Butter. . .More Syrup. . . . I LIKE. . .

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Here is my BIGGEST breakfast weakness. . . Thing is, I only want them when I make them. I tend to make them on the weekends but this morning I woke up & my son & husband wanted pancakes, bacon & turkey sausages. Mother had to make sure her babies go out into the world fed. Here's my favorite cartoon about pancakes. . . . .

See you get the pancakes, more butter, more syrup, more butter, more syrup but as you can see, Chilly Willy had to pay a price before he could have those mouth watering pancakes. . . YUMMY!! If were accountable with over indulgence as we have to pay to play (eat) how many times we would over do it fully knowing the consequence? Being overweight leads to hypertension, diabetes heart disease & many other life threatening diseases. With proper nutrition think of how healthy & fit we could all be?

Look at these Red velvet pancakes served with whipped cream cheese and butter pecan syrup, they look amazing! How can proper nutrition fight against this?

You can eat one pancake like I do & a slice of bacon, like I do. But I do need to ease up on the syrup & butter? lol Today, I did walking, tonight its weights, pilates & step aerobics., so see I can eat the cookies (pancakes) & feel less guilt. To some degree we have to either pull back from the table or do more push ups, squats, sits up & cardio with weights. . . . lol

God bless & give yourself 10-15minutes of fitness daily to make it a habit.

    I love my homemade pancakes and I know how to make them healthier by adding oats and milled flax seed and low fat buttermilk gives them a great taste. I also use honey when I have
    it or sugar free syrup. I will use real butter because it has health benefits. Thank God I don't make them everyday. LOL I try to make a lot for later and freeze them, but I just don't want them after I freeze them.
    My sister and brother ate the same pancakes my mother made and who got all the weight? Yep me...LOL.
    Thanks Dee for sharing!!!! emoticon

    Now I'm hungry before I go to bed. These looked delicious. The problem though is that it's hard to have only one. Ah, well. How many minutes on the treadmill to burn off a pancake? :) -- Lou

    Oh my, those pancakes looked so good. I don't cook them but will occasionally have 1 or 2 when I'm out for breakfast on the weekend. No syrup and most of the butter gets pushed off the plate. Never heard of the red velvet pancakes but they look and sound good.

    Push back or push up!

    Dee I love Butter and Syrup too! I'm more of a waffle(nutri-grain) eater. I use smart balance and sugar free log cabin syrup. I love turkey sausage links by Jimmy Dean. I cannot tell a difference and trust me if anybody can it's me, but I pray on this stuff One thing with the butter is that instead of putting it in my all my food, I put it directly on it and you don't need as much to taste it. It's all in our eyes is what I had to figure out cause I had a weakness with overloading my potato with tons of butter and was taking the taste away and now it's healthy and I'm losing all this weight. I'm not going to know what to do with myself when I get there.=)

    Well done. My hubby makes the pancakes and waffles, and I prefer the waffles, but not very often. He used to make them every week. Now, it is just once in a while.

    I'm so lucky that I don't like pancakes. It's not that I don't like em, its more that they sit like lead in my tummy. Now, when I make em from scratch, I never get a tummy ache.
