Tasty Thursday: Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes

Hello friends! Here's what I did as a workout during my lunch break today:

35 minutes on the elliptical
 
Weight Training:
Dumbbell plie squats 3x20
Stationary lunges 3x20
Dumbbell lateral raises 3x20
Dumbbell upright rows 3x20
 
 
 
As I was working out today, I began reminiscing about marathon training and I how much I missed running my long runs and then going home to eat a big and hearty breakfast. I started thinking, if I were doing a long run this Saturday, I would eat pumpkin pancakes afterwards. But what the heck? I think I'll have them anyway! =)
 
Here's a healthy version of pumpkin pancakes thanks to Running to the Kitchen. They are inspired by the Paleo diet and of course, the Fall season!
