Protein Pancakes with Krusteaz

In Recipes

I’m going to be honest here, I’ve never made pancakes before. I know! Shocking! Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve eaten my fair share of them, I’ve just always thought they were a lot of work to make so I always opted for other easier breakfast options. Krusteaz recently sent me a box of their new Buttermilk Protein Flapjack & Waffle Mix and instead of having Ed make them (Hey! He’s the cook in the house!) I tried my hand at it. And let me tell you, Krusteaz makes it so easy to enjoy delicious protein packed pancakes in minutes! Krusteaz Buttermilk Protein Flapjack & Waffle Mix is made with 100% whole grain flour, with 15 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber per serving when you make them with water. If you want even more protein, just substitute milk for the water. If you even more protein, you […]

Amazon Summer Favorites

In Style

Just because it is September 1st does not mean that summer is over! I’m not saying that I’m not super excited for all things fall – pumpkin spice lattes, chunky sweaters and fall scented candles, but I just can’t believe that summer will soon be coming to an end. I’ve rounded up my favorite Amazon purchases that I made this summer. These are pieces that I’ve worn over and over again. Pieces that I will wear all the way until the warm weather ends. Since I’m in the Midwest that could be October! We never know. 1. Sunflower Midi Dress – My #1 favorite Amazon purchase this summer is this sunflower dress. I can’t tell you how many times I wore this dress this summer. It’s comfy, it’s flattering, and it’s the perfect midi length. I also think it offers a good amount of support to go bra-less. It’s such a great […]
