Who doesn't love pancakes?! I just don't love all the sugar they can provide - What if I told you there is a delicious pancake mix that provides lots of protein, very little sugar, and is a good source of fiber? Well it's true... Kodiak Cakes do exactly that! They are made with whole grains, can provide up to 21g of protein, has 3g of sugar, and 5g of fiber per serving! There are quite a few flavor options, and while I haven't been able to try them all yet, I love the dark chocolate!
You can add plain water to the mix, or use milk and add an egg for extra protein. I like to top mine with fresh fruit and sometimes a little sugar free syrup. And honestly, they don't even need the syrup! It's the perfect amount of sweetness and provides a protein-packed breakfast. They can even be purchased in on-the-go cups - you just add water and heat in the microwave for those busy mornings!
For those of you with a gluten intolerance - they have gluten free mixes, as well as organic and superfood options! Check out their website linked below to see everything they have to offer!
So I guess it's time that I post on here that I was accepted into the Nicholls Dietetic Internship. I'm incredibly excited to finally start this journey to finishing my education to become a Registered Dietitian. This has been a dream of mine and it's finally happening!
I often hear people refer to me as a nutritionist and a dietitian - but did you know there is a difference? While I have my bachelors in dietetics, I'm not a registered dietitian, YET! But once I complete my internship and pass the National Registration Exam for Dietitians, I will be an RD!
