Since this is our annual nutrition issue, I plied our staff for their favorite go-to recipes that are tasty and clean. Here’s what they came up with. Enjoy!

I literally eat these pancakes every single day, and have for like the last ten years! I change the flavor up all the time, though, sometimes adding cinnamon and applesauce, or a little hot chocolate mix if I am feeling decadent. This version is my fav: It’s made with pureed canned pumpkin which adds some great fiber, vitamins and minerals to the recipe.
Makes 1 serving
5 large egg whites
1 whole egg
1/3 cup quick oats
1 heaping tbsp each chia seeds, oat bran and ground flax meal
¼ cup pureed pumpkin
cinnamon, to taste
Mix all ingredients together in bowl and cook as pancakes. Eat with maple syrup. (I do!)
