These pancakes make a great breakfast after a hard exercise session. Your body needs protein for repair and quality carbs to replenish glycogen and electrolytes, so you need to choose foods rich in potassium that will help regulate fluid balance in the body and lower blood pressure. Potassium is also necessary for nerve and muscle contraction.
Studies show the blueberries contain antioxidants called polyphenols as well as vitamin C which can also play a roll in the recovery process and heal oxidative stress after a workout. These pancakes hit the mark in every way. A great source of protein, potassium, antioxidants and carbs to help your body refuel.
