Ducks 'n a Row: Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes With Fresh Blueberry Topping

Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes With Fresh Blueberry Topping

My go-to eating plan is low-carb. I enjoy it - feel great on it - and I lose weight! Only problem, carbs keep "calling" me and, eventually, I do find them again. When that happens, the weight comes back, too. 

That is why Trim Healthy Mama caught my attention, as my friend Sarah was shrinking before my eyes (Sarah lost 24 pounds in her first month on THM - her hubby lost 29 - and she looked radiantly beautiful! I couldn't help but notice.)

The clincher was when I found out I could stick with my beloved low-carb eating and still have an occasional healthy high carb (+ LOW fat) meal that would jumpstart me into quicker weight loss. Quicker? Really? Oh yeah! 

For more information about the THM eating plan, check out their website or get the book. It is available in the public library or you can order it from Amazon right here: Trim Healthy Mama Plan - The Easy-Does-It Approach To Vibrant Healthy and a Slim Waistline

These oatmeal pancakes are one of my favorite THM - E meals (E is for energy. That is what the high friendly-carb - low fat meal is called.) Someday I may write about the whole plan but I am still a beginner so I'll wait on that. 

This "beginner" has lost 11 pounds painlessly and I am loving THM all the more. That 11 pound weightloss came with many stops and starts, I might add. Such as the windstorm that knocked our electric out for 5 days ("McD's driveup here we come!") followed by a 26 inch snowstorm just a few days later and hubby in the hospital - seriously ill - twice. Each time, I did not concern myself with any special plan. We were in "survival mode." Interestingly, I never gained back any weight. I held steady until I went back on THM and began to lose again. Amazing.

There is no need to be on Trim Healthy Mama to enjoy these pancakes. The ingredients are healthy and they taste great. Some people like to grind the oatmeal into a flour-like consistency. I actually prefer them made with the oatmeal straight out of the round box. It adds lots of texture and taste. The pancakes are so filling that you may say "this is just ONE serving?" But, trust me, it is!
