Dr. Tim Says....
[This is another in our series on the How and Why of Eating Healthy.]
"Just what the heck is a calorie and what do I do with it?!" I hear this a lot from my patients and knowing the answer is the basis for success in eating well and losing weight.
The calorie is a unit of measure of energy, sort of like the watts on a light bulb. It takes more energy (watts) to burn a brighter bulb just as it takes more energy (calories) to climb the stairs than using the elevator. Calories Count
I love these little pancakes and you can use the basic recipe with almost any flavor you want. The dill is great but herbed with oregano, thyme or basil really brings out the flavor. You could, however, turn them Southwestern with about 1/2 teaspoon of cumin and a bit of chili powder.
This recipe is safe for Coumadin (warfarin) users, is low in sodium, and is both gluten-free and lactose-free. Those with GERD / Acid Reflux should avoid it.
