We all know the famous saying, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”, but it really is! I may be sort of biased since I am an avid breakfast eater and a Dietitian. However, when you come from a household that offered breakfast every day whether it was a grab-and-go breakfast or a hot breakfast then those habits just kind of stick.
Most recently, I was gifted the Barlow’s original pancake mix from Barlow’s Foods. Barlow’s Foods is a black, woman owned business that provides pancake mixes and assorted breakfast staples located right here in the heart of Atlanta. After reading the story of how Barlow’s Foods was created, this bag of pancake mix meant so much more to me. Named after the founders’ grandfather, Barlow’s Foods is an example of how people can make such a great impact on our lives. So much so that it turns a vision into a reality.
What I love about the Barlow’s pancake mix is that it is made with whole ingredients, no preservatives, and no artificial flavors. Included with the mix was a three fold recipe card with dairy-free, vegan, and egg-free recipe options. I prepared the pancakes by following the vegan recipe– we are not vegans, but we do consume almond milk, which made sense when selecting the recipe that I was going to follow. The ingredients needed were almond milk, vegetable oil, vanilla, and brown sugar.
Sundays are our designated hot breakfast mornings and let me just say…..not one pancake was left on a plate. Everyone in the house approved the pancakes….yes, even EJ! I’m really looking forward to the next time that we have a hot breakfast, because Barlow’s pancakes will be on the table.
