Did you know March is National Nutrition Month? That means it’s time to kick your healthy eating into high-gear. Start by eating cleaner foods and purging the junk. Speaking of clean foods, I had a fun time putting together a recipe for Zemas Madhouse Foods. This company is run by a mom who wanted to create something healthier and cleaner for her own kids.
I used Zemas’ boxed Sweet Potato Pancake Mix to come up with this yummy version. My family devoured it.
This Sweet Potato Pancake mix is not only healthy and delicious, it’s so versatile. Throw in mini-chocolate chips and eat it plain on the go, or try wild blueberries with shredded coconut like this recipe calls for. If you have access to wild blueberries they work well in this dish since they’re smaller. Any way you make it, know that you’ll be making a healthy choice!
