Almond Flour Love

Today's workout: Bike 4 miles easy (still recovering)

DC weather has been all over the place. Last week, we had our first real substantial snow.

Yesterday was 70 degrees. I'm sure the swinging temps played  a role in my recent run-in with the flu and walking pneumonia. When I started feeling the symptoms coming on, I knew I needed to get Tubby to the daycare since I didn't know how long I would be in urgent care. Problem was my car was in N.C. and I was too fatigued to walk him that far. Lucky for me, most cabs in D.C. will allow you to take your pup along for the ride, at an extra cost of course.

Spoiled city pup.

Now that my appetite is back, I have been craving breakfast in the mornings again. My favorite go-to breakfast is Almond Flour Pancakes from paleoplan.

I tried these out when I was looking to incorporate some paleo into my diet, but I found I enjoy these so much more than regular pancakes. The fact that they are healthier for you is a nice bonus :)
