I love anything with coconut in it, so these pancakes definitely hit the spot this morning. Coconut was the dominate flavor with a little bit of pineapple, banana, and vanilla coming trough in each bite. I topped my pancake with sunflower butter and more shredded coconut. Delish!

Feel Great Weight

A few years ago, I worked a 9-5 desk job in an office where the kitchen was a ever-present buffet of donuts, muffins, cookies, and other larger-than-life pastries. I honestly can’t remember too many days when there wasn’t some sort of sweet treat tempting me to eat it. I often fell victim to those goodies when my stress levels rose, and instead of dealing with what was actually stressing me out, I temporarily masked my feelings with the treats. I didn’t recognize this pattern was happening for a long time””until it led me to gain several pounds.

Even now when I feel stressed, I still crave sugary carbs, which are loaded with calories and fat and not helpful when it comes to maintaining my Feel Great Weight. It’s not always easy to overcome those emotions, but these tricks have certainly helped me (and will help you!) get a handle on stress eating: Stressed Out? Tricks to Avoid Emotional Eating.
