Take your pancakes to a whole new level with these Healthy Bacon Cauliflower Pancakes!
It’s been 10 months since I’ve had Weston. 10 months of not shedding any additional baby weight. I’ve gotten down to my pre-baby weight but I’m still ABOVE where I need to be.
Years ago I lost about 50 pounds through Weight Watchers and just watching what I ate. I’ve always said that you can’t help a person lose weight because they have to want to do it and be 100% committed. After Labor Day, I decided to commit to losing weight again.
As a food blogger this is an extremely hard task to do at home. I am constantly sampling my food because I want to make sure it tastes good before I get bombarded with negative comments/reviews. I’m also making and eating the recipes before I have a chance to input the nutrition value into the system which complicates things. That’s when I’m hoping and praying that my “healthy” meal is actually a healthy meal.
Going forward you will see some healthy meals and the occasional I’ve fallen off the bandwagon dessert or meal. I mean I do give myself a cheat day at least once a week and my kids won’t stop begging for that ooey gooey chocolate dessert.
Today, I’m sharing these Bacon Cauliflower Pancakes with you. I made them years ago when I was on Weight Watchers and decided that it was time for a redo. I might have added a bit more cheese because I was able to get more out of them. I call that a win-win.
As of now, I do not add nutritional facts to my recipes due to the fact that different products can alter the outcome. Feel free to calculate on your own.
