 Protein pancakes: taste test ranks protein flapjacks for nutrition and flavor 
Mancakes. Yes, they're a thing. And they're just one of brands of protein-packed pancakes showing up on grocery shelves. Protein flapjacks are nothing new: Google "protein pancakes" and you'll find thousands of DIY recipes centered on ingredients like cottage cheese, chia seeds and mashed banana. Clearly there's a niche in the market for a good-tasting and good-for-you protein pancake mix. A nutrient-rich pancake can be a solution to the conundrum of finding a carby comfort food that still is nutritious.

“Healthy” Breakfast Cereals 
Breakfast sets the tone for the day when it comes to our energy levels, our ability to focus and learn, and even our cravings. The right breakfast leaves us energized and feeling solid until lunchtime. The wrong breakfast leaves us bottomed out, craving more carbs. And since cereal is one of the more popular breakfast choices, we’re Getting the Skinny with Molly on the best and worst of the seemingly healthful cereals!

 Get the Skinny in the Kitchen: 3 DIY Freezer-Friendly Breakfasts 
Let’s be honest, mornings can be insane. So while we may wish we had the time for a freshly-made home-cooked breakfast, the reality is that we need something fast that we can grab & go. With a little planning and prep work, it’s easy to make nutritious breakfasts ahead of time – then freeze – for a nutritious breakfast on the go.
