Healthy Breakfast Idea: Pumpkin Protein Pancake Recipe

It’s important to start your day off with a healthy protein packed breakfast in order to kick start your metabolism and fuel your body for success.  Eating more protein in the morning will help rev up your metabolism and keep you feeling full for longer, which will lead to eating less throughout the day.  Breakfast is just that: breaking the fast!  The body is in a fasted state when you wake up because you have gone approximately 6-8 hours without any food, so it’s very important to get something healthy in your stomach almost immediately.
