LOW CARB PANCAKE

Good morning! How are you?

Hope you had a great Easter!

I loved my Sunday… I got to spend some quality time with my American family and friends, we had a delicious “country style” lunch with a homemade cheesecake and easter cupcakes for dessert, played outside games, died eggs, and enjoyed the beautiful and peaceful day out in the country!

I do believe that being healthy is living with BALANCE and that we need to treat ourselves sometimes WITHOUT NEUROSES… I enjoyed every bit of that homemade cheesecake with a strong and warn Brazilian coffee, which was worth every single calorie!!

And to help us to get back to our healthy eating routine, today I am going to share with you a LOW CARB pancake recipe for a delicious breakfast or even snack.
