I had a taste for pancakes today, and since Tony and I are going to start South Beach tomorrow, I figured it was now or never!
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 3/4 cup skim milk
- 2 eggs, beat separatedly before ading to mixture
- 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) melted butter
Mix dry ingredients first. Mix wet ingredients. Slowly add the wet mixture to the dry mixture until well combined. Let sit at least 10 minutes (or more). This let’s the baking powder do it its thing and makes for very fluffy pancakes.
I heated my stove to 225 degrees and once the pancakes were done, put them on a cookie sheet to stay warm until the whole batch was cooked. I had two pancakes, sf syrup and 2 ounces of sausage.
I am trying to come up with a menu plan for our first 7 days of Phase I of the plan. This includes a list of things that cannot be eaten:
- fatty cuts of meat
- dark meat
- ALL STARCHES!
- ALL FRUIT!
- Whole Milk
- ALL ALCOHOL!
- ALL SWEETS!
I think I have breakfast figured out – ham, spinach, zucchini egg cups. It may be a lot of repetitive eating this week, we’ll see!
Off to do some more research – pretty sure I am going to have chili dogs for lunch to watch the Sox beat the Cubs and it will be our fairwell to bread, so I already have my pizza dough rising as we speak! 😀
See you at lunch!
