What’s for breakfast? If you’re trying to lose weight, it may feel like you’re stuck eating the same bland, boring, low-calorie meal day after day. This morning, try something different! These protein-packed, homemade pancakes can be whipped up quickly with a whole-wheat pancake mix, fiber-rich (and filling) quick oats and egg whites. Replace sticky, thick syrup with reduced-sugar strawberry jam for sweetness without all the extra calories.
