I'm a human being on planet earth. I've lived hundreds of lifetimes. In this incarnation I'm here to advance medicine.

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!
