Happy Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday/BEST DAY OF THE YEAR.1902710_10152044552578152_1884169739_n


It’s National Pancake Day! Celebrate like you should, folks!

As anyone reading this blog for more than 5 minutes probably knows, I’m a HUGE advocate for pancakes for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner (they’re my pre-long run fuel!), and I’m a firm believer in the ol’ “everything in moderation” adage.

You can find lots of yummy pancake recipes (inluding Paleo ones!) on my Recipes page.

As far as my favorite mix, I always turn to Kodiak Cakes. They are a delicious (and relatively nutritious) option for making a stack at home without dirtying up my kitchen too badly. Pssst – I just checked their website, and they’re offering 30% off at checkout with the code “PANCAKE.”

In case you want to sneak out for some flapjacks at lunch, IHOP is giving away free short stacks today to celebrate this special day, too! You’re encouraged to leave a small donation for a charity while you’re there.

And don’t worry, I’ll be having all the pancakes today. 😉



Will you be having pancakes today? How are you celebrating Mardi Gras?

    I grew up in Louisiana and now live elsewhere, but fortunately I’ll still get to celebrate with the king cake my husband made for us. That’s what Mardi Gras is all about for me!

      That’s awesome that your husband makes one! I was in New Orleans a couple years ago during Mardi Gras, and it was so fun seeing the homemade king cakes around!
