Recipe For Protein Pancakes From Trainer David Kirsch

Breakfast, DK Style: Power Pancakes

The following post was written by New York-based trainer David Kirsch.

I'll be the first to admit abiding by a sound nutrition plan does require discipline. You will have to make some adjustments to your eating habits, changes to your diet, and eliminate some foods for good (it’s all for the better!). But quite often, just a simple switch in a recipe can make all the difference between a healthy and heavy, tummy-bloating meal.

My Power Pancakes prove that you don’t have to sacrifice the experience of an enjoyable breakfast while following the DK plan. Rich in protein and whole grains, they feature the essential components of a sound breakfast — and contain no white flour or sugar! A great way to start the day after a morning workout, you won’t feel weighed down (or have the urge to go back to bed).
