Breakfast: It's what's for dinner!

Like I said I would do before, I took advantage of the lack of parental units and my picky older sister and made an unusual dinner. I couldn't really think of what I wanted, but as I was looking through the pantry and saw this pancake mix I bought last weekend
It doesn't say so on the front, but this mix is made with whole grain flour. Gingerbread is one of my favorite foods too! I made three pancakes. One with pure maple syrup, one with a sliced banana, and one with frozen blueberries. I heated the blueberries in the microwave so they were warm and mushy!
Ignore the burnt pancake! I have to say these weren't overly gingerbread-y. They were just barely spiced. I think next time I'll have to add my own nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. I also had an egg on the side for some protein. Tonight, I had a clementine, whole grain graham crackers with peanut butter, vanilla Ben and Jerry's, and a mini dark chocolate from my advent calendar. No pics, sorry! I've challenged myself to eat everything from the advent calendar this year, and not exercise it off like I have in past years.

Tomorrow I have an orchestra rehearsal after school, then I'm going to my first group therapy session. Hopefully it will help! I probably won't be on until after dinner.
