Protein Pancakes with Caramelized Pineapples

Yaaaay…. Monday……

Let’s be honest. I have a 6am flight this morning. I got 3 hours of sleep. Awesome….

This is going to be one serious case of the “Mondays” for which there is only one cure, a kick-butt breakfast! I am taking myself away from the work-doldrums with a breakfast fit for a tropical vacation. Slow-cooked pineapples make a decadent topping for delicious and healthy protein pancakes.

Fuel your body right and carpe the heck out of this diem!
