Monday Musings (flapJacked, T Shirt Printing, & Yumvelope)

Must Try

Lauren Zembronhttps://www.healthyfoodforliving.com/
I am a 34 year old living outside of Boston with my wonderful husband, energetic daughter, sweet son, and playful dog. I have degrees in both psychology and guidance counseling, and have worked in a variety of school settings. I strive to find a balance between the two basic food philosophies of “eat to live” and “live to eat“. I believe that food should be (and is!) one of the great pleasures of leading a healthy lifestyle.

1. Saturday morning offered the perfect opportunity to try the Buttermilk flapJacked Protein Pancake Mix sent to me from the company’s owners.

Stirred with a cup of cold water and ladled into a warm skillet, this mix yielded light and fluffy pancakes that rival your favorite diner short stack; though they are a bit less sweet (that’s what maple syrup is for!). The simple mix-and-stir method is especially appealing to me now that mornings aren’t quite as laid-back as they were B.L. (Before Lily).

One 4 oz pack serves 2; each serving clocking in at 200 calories, 3 grams fat, 1.5 grams saturated fat, 6 grams fiber, and a whopping 17 grams of protein. Not too shabby when it comes to pancakes!

I still have two other varieties to taste and share with you, so stay tuned.

2. The sweet Emily from T Shirt Printing offered to emblazon a tee shirt with my blog’s logo, and it turned out perfectly!

It took zero effort on my part; the company was able to download the image directly from my blog and print it onto a high-quality, soft, fitted tee. Unfortunately, the shirt is a bit too snug on me, (I mistakenly requested a small), but I’ll save it for Lily when she gets older ;).

3. Yet another freebie (I love being a food blogger)!

I was lucky enough to be able to sample this month’s snack box from Yumvelope.

So far I have only sampled the granola (which was really tasty!) but I’m eyeing the dark chocolate bar and bagged cookies ;).

4. Speaking of cookies, I made – yet another – version of my beloved coconut-oat macaroons, and will be sharing the recipe with you this week. If you’re a chocolate-lover, you’re not going to want to miss it!
