Flax and Chia Seed Protein Pancake

     I am not sure a Pancake could get any healthier ( ...or yummier :)!  Talk about killing two birds with one Pancake!!!  The macros will have you chirping with joy, 372 calories, 3.5g net carbs and 50.3g protein (not including peach slices).  This will give you the strength to fly thru your day and soar to new heights.  Spread your wings and experiment with Flax and Chia Seeds, and see if leaving the nest of boring breakfasts behind brings a new feather to your cap. As an added bonus, I have included an EGGSellant article on the health benefits of Flax Seed, you will find a complete history of Flax Seeds along with the benefits and nutritional value, http://www.nutriinspector.com/flax-seed-health-benefits/.  This is one to tweet about  ;)
