Greens Powders Pancakes

A couple of companies make a green powder that is a mix of nutrients and the essence of various fruits and vegetables. This kind of product is a game-changer for me. A small scoop of this product puts you well on your way to cover your bases in terms of getting proper nutrition. They are giving us a short-cut to eating properly and covering all the nutritional bases we, as hunters, need to watch. Eating properly and moving and sweating every day are at the foundation of my philosophy of well-being. My super greens are a staple of my diet and you need to check it out.

I’ll use this in the field when I am going days and days without something fresh, or at home when I want to be at my best. I’ll add it to smoothies with berries, or drink it alone. Combine this with a post-workout protein mix and almond milk, and you’ll be recovering strong after a good workout with a delicious drink.

Greens Powders Pancakes

Take your favourite pancake recipe, whether it’s from scratch or from a dry mix. Add a scoop of your favourite green powder. If it tastes good, add two scoops the next time and see how it turns out. Keep adding more until you find the taste too strong.

I also add blueberries and use almond milk instead of dairy milk.
