A Breakfast Anyone Can Make Time For.

Today peoples lives are so hectic with work and family while trying to keep their social life in tact. Work seems to pile up, household issues and bills never seem to be finished or paid off, and there never seems to be enough hours in the day to get everything done. Due to the craziness of life, more and more people are not getting an adequate breakfast in the morning, and most, skip it altogether. Drive through windows at fast food restaurants early in the morning are becoming the norm. Dessert coffees, muffins, and donuts are more popular. People just don't seem to have the time to be able to prepare and make their own healthy, balanced breakfast at home anymore. This is an issue.

Breakfast, as we have all been told since the time we were able to listen, is the most important meal of the day. This holds true because, during sleep your body goes into a catabolic state, breaking down much needed muscle. So during the first hour upon awakening, one should eat a balanced meal of a fast acting protein, a slow digesting carbohydrate, and fat. The fast acting protein will rush into the muscles, ending the catabolic state of the body, stopping the break down of muscle. This recipe contains two different fast acting proteins (whey and egg white) to ensure that the body go back into it's normal anabolic state for the rest of the day. The Protein Pancake Cookie, not only has protein, but it is balanced with a slow digesting carbohydrate (oats) and fat (flax and peanut butter) necessary in aiding the protein in becoming absorbed by the muscles, and to keep you full and energized for hours, so you can get shit done.

The Protein Pancake Cookie may not add hours to the day, but it only takes seven minutes to prepare, cook, and enjoy ensuring that you get a healthy, balanced meal to start your hectic demanding schedule such as life.
