Weekends are the perfect time to enjoy an indulgent breakfast. But “indulgent” doesn’t have to mean unhealthy!
In fact, you can enjoy delicious breakfast foods – like these Paleo buttermilk pancakes – that will fill you up and keep your blood sugar stable and your metabolism cranking on all gears.
But let me stress something important…
The pancakes I’m talking about are VERY different than the buttermilk pancakes that come in a box (like Aunt Jemima) or those served at IHOP and other breakfast restaurants. And they’re far better than “whole wheat” or even “organic” pancake mixes you’ll find at the store.
In fact, whole wheat raises blood sugar more than nearly all other foods – including table sugar and candy bars!
And that’s really bad news for your health. High blood sugar levels promote the storage of belly fat… it triggers inflammation… and increases the risk of fatty liver, diabetes, heart disease and many other chronic illnesses.
But the good news is that you don’t need a gram of grain to make delicious breakfast foods that your whole family will love… and that you will love feeding your family.
