Nothing feels like a Sunday morning more than slowly waking up in your warm and cozy bed and then heading downstairs to create a full and hearty breakfast  – that is unless you have kids, then I at least hope that you woke up and didn’t step on a lego getting out of bed.

Either way, breakfast is a time to come together with loved ones and fuel up before you go about your day. It is a key meal in regards to jump starting your metabolism and providing your body with the fuel it needs to function efficiently.

However, what you may NOT know is that many common breakfast choices are packed with ingredients that can leave you feeling too full, bloated, gassy and lethargic.

While eating boxed pancake mix may be quick and easy, that powder is made of bleached and enriched flour and partially hydrogenated oil. Not to mention that it is also loaded with trans-fat, which many doctors say is the worst type of fat to eat – YUCK!

But don’t worry, I have a natural, sweet and savory Sweet Potato Pancake recipe that will be be enjoyable and easy like Sunday morning. Top it off with some Breakfast Greens to give your day a healthy jumpstart!

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
