Health Shouldn't Be A Battle

Pick-Me-Up Almond Pancakes


Prep Time

10 minutes

Prep Notes

I just ate heaven on a plate. In fact, these pancakes were so unbelievably tasty that they really do speak for themselves. They don't require any additional recipe "pushing" from me.

The best part? They are totally meant for boosting your mood! I'm not talking about the orgasmic feeling you'll have while eating them ("I'll have what she's having!"...Please tell me that reference is not lost on anyone. That would make me feel old and I refuse to feel old!).

Let's talk almonds...They are these little energy-packed magnesium pellets made for converting energy in your body more efficiently and sending a smile to your brain (think "happy" pills without the need for a prescription or refills)!


Moving on to Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia (That joke cracks me up every.single.time! Lame, I know.) These little seeds are packed with Omega 3 fatty acids. The reality is, Omega 3's have a list of benefits longer than a mile. I don't have time for all of that right now, but since we're talking mood, I'll just say "Trust me! They'll make you feel good".
