The Best Pancakes in Cleveland

They were traditionally eaten in quantity on Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day, a day of feasting and partying before the beginning of Lent. Pancakes are traditionally eaten on Shrove Tuesday, which is known as “Pancake Day” in Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, and Australia, and “Pancake Tuesday” in Ireland and Scotland.

    Adding protein to your breakfast helps keep you fuller for longer. Good protein sources at breakfast include Greek yogurt, eggs and cottage cheese.
  • Whole Grains Eat whole grains to help you stay sharp and focused throughout the morning. Whole grains are slower-burning carbs, so you don’t digest them as quickly. Plus you’ll get some essential vitamins and minerals. Try oatmeal, whole-wheat toast or a whole-wheat English muffin. For those really busy on-the-go mornings keep a stash of something easy go grab and go and that has whole-grains listed as the first ingredients, like Belvita Golden Oat Breakfast Biscuits.
  • Fruits or Veggies Getting your produce at breakfast isn’t as hard as it seems. Choosing fruit or veggies gives your breakfast more vitamins, minerals and feel-full fiber. Try adding fruits to yogurt, a smoothie or eating them on the side of whatever else you’re having. Go for green in a green smoothie or add some vegetables to your eggs.
