This morning I decided to make pancakes for breakfast. I've been making my goals all week, so I decided a treat was in order. I've had a box of pancake mix in my pantry-chocolate chip banana pancakes- yum! Then I started reading the nutritional info. Something like 60 grams of carbs, 14 grams of sugar, and 980 grams of SODIUM! Wow. I couldn't believe how much salt was in a package of pancake mix. I tossed the mix and looked in Spark Recipes. I found a great recipe for whole wheat applesauce pancakes. I tweaked it a little- added a pinch of cinnamon and a half cup of blueberries. Topped it with some sugar free apricot preserves and had a great, indulgent breakfast that was guilt free. As a matter of fact, I'm feeling pretty darn good about it.
