It's Not Easy Being Green

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all of my Irish friends!

I like the color green. :)

I had the worst case of insomnia last night and felt like a complete zooombie this morning.  I texted my sweet husband and asked if he would be willing to pick up some pancake mix on his way home from work.

I was in the mood for something with lots of whole grains and currently don't have a recipe or whole wheat flour to make pancakes from scratch.  So Bruce picked this mix up for me to try.

My one hang up with pancakes has always been that there is literally no nutritional value.  These pancakes are filled with fiber and whole grains - so I actually feel like I have energy right now!

This helped too.

My verdict on the taste is this - if you like whole grains and healthy-tasting food, you will really like these.  But I'm not going to lie and say that they taste like Sweet Flapjack Pancakes.  They don't.  There's definitely a different taste to them - I liked it, though!

Have a good one!


  1. I've been wanting to try that particular pancake mix. I'm glad to know it's good for someone who likes whole grains and healthy-tasting foods- that means it's right up my alley!

  2. I had pancakes this morning, too! Sometimes there the only thing to hit the spot.

  3. I don't know if you have Trader Joe's by you, but their multigrain pancake mix is excellent!
