One of the most difficult things about sticking to a healthy lifestyle is missing out on all those holiday-related treats and special occasion snacks, but it doesn’t have to be that way! With a few tweaks you can share the traditions without sacrificing your fitness goals.
And where better to start than Pancake Tuesday! It’s the one day of the year that you won’t be judged for eating pancakes and ice cream for dinner, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you should.

Thanks for these great ideas - I'm not a fan of bananas and a lot of the healthy pancake alternatives have banana in so I'm glad not all of these do.
