Food Villains #11: Pancakes

July 13, 2014 1 min read

Pancakes are a traditional American breakfast, and one that we've all enjoyed many, many times. There's nothing like a "stack o' flapjacks" steaming on our plates, complete with butter, maple syrup, honey, and other delicious toppings. However, pancakes are almost always made with white flour, so they're empty calories--and A LOT of them! Stuff the pancakes with nuts or chocolate chips, and you just increase the calorie and sugar count of your breakfast without adding ANY value whatsoever.

With each serving of these pancakes, you get:
  • 1,543 calories
  • 109 grams of sugar
  • 2,259 mg of sodium
  • 77 grams of fat
That's like 75% of your total food intake sitting on your plate. Add a milkshake and a brace of eggs, and you're done for the day! That's the problem with pancakes: they're just so darn high in calories. The problem is, all that white flour will shoot through your system, leaving you hungry in just a few hours. My advice: Make it a protein-heavy breakfast.(Change out the starch of pancakes for the protein of eggs and bacon. With fruit, some OJ, and perhaps a few potato wedges or a hash brown, you're still getting FAR fewer calories!)
