I recently read (skimmed and looked at the pictures) a blog regarding how Americans eat basically dessert for breakfast; and while this may be true in some sense, I honestly do not consider Lucky Charms a dessert. If you’re going to eat dessert, at least consume something more satisfying than puffed wheat and faux marshmallow. In my travels around the world, I have found that in the U.S (for the most part) breakfast is an actual meal. In many European countries, you receive a plate barely adequate for a toddler, holding a pastry and a tiny cup of coffee. Some will argue “well the U.S is obese because of such practices including an unhealthy breakfast”, and I say, “prove it!” Throwing out facts just because they seem like facts, is probably what makes Americans fat. For those who want to eat dessert and lots of it for breakfast, while not feeling bad because it’s 7am, and you’re wolfing down cake, check out this recipe! It’s packed with protein and with under 1g of fat per slice, you could eat the entire pan, or share it, if that’s your thing…
