Banana Protein Pancakes

So if you didn’t notice, I truly believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. In all my years as a trainer, I’ve never seen a client be successful at losing or maintaining their weight if they were not a breakfast eater.   Starting your day right sets you up for a successful day of eating and choice making in general. However, that doesn’t mean you should just grab anything. Fill your body with high nutrition, low fat food and your body will run like the amazing machine it is.

Healthy Banana Bread

My kids and hubby are crazy picky! None of them are breakfast eaters but as they’ve aged and matured have realized that they need something in the morning. Mostly breakfast entails cold cereal if they’ve left enough time (they are teenagers after all) or a quick grab and go protein shake. I’ve learned that one way to make sure they eat more is to have things on hand that they can grab and go. You will almost always find a fresh baked from scratch item on my counter for my picky eaters. This way I know what is going into their bodies, can sneak in what I want and they will always eat something. This banana bread is moist, healthy and down right yummy!
