Kicking the New Year off with a Healthy Spinach Treat

Happy New Year! I'm sure there are a lot of resolutions floating around out there and some, 48+ hours into 2011, they may already have been broken. No fear! You can kick things off on the right track b eating healthy right now. I (as you can read from past entries) do not always err on the healthy side. It's much easier for me in the summer/fall when I'm visiting farmers markets and stocking up on local produce, but in the winter? It's tough! I've been trying to shed a few more pounds though and in the frozen foods aisle of Whole Foods have discovered a fabulous new staple.

One of my absolute favorite treats to eat are Dr. Praeger's Spinach Pancakes. Sounds tempting right? These little cakes have 10 ingredients. That's it! Spinach my friends is number one. You think you're eating a potato pancake but all that healthy goodness is still there. Each pancake is 80 calories and just 4 grams of fat. There are 2 grams of fiber (that's 10% of your daily value folks) and 15% of your Vitamin A intake. I'll often eat two of these for breakfast and through in an egg and some fruit to start off the day.

Good stuff!


  1. Yum! Those were seriously Aiden's favorite thing to eat for over a year! Bummer is that he isn't as into them now...

  2. Hmmm sounds like I will have to try these...I had tried their veggie burgers and didn't like them so much. Will give these a try though, good idea!:)
