Carb Up At These 5 NYC Spots For National Pancake Day
Everyone knows that breakfast food beats any other, not only because it provides us with the energy that we need to start the day, but also because it’s without a doubt the most delicious. Nutritionists all over the globe agree that breakfast – even when on a diet – is the one cheat meal we get each day. This does not mean we should eat cake and pizza every morning with our coffee, it simply means that we can feel free to add some healthy carbs, sugars, proteins (of course, all in moderation) to our early day meal and our bodies will use it as fuel for boosting our energy rather than store it as fat! Pretty great right? On that note, join us in eating our carbs away in celebration of today’s big holiday: National Pancake Day!
Whether you’re a maple syrup classic, a melted butter lover or a chopped fruit and yoghurt health nut, nothing is more satisfying that a good old stack of pancakes to start – or end – the day. Because our favorite Chefs are also human, and they too understand that breakfast food is often better during dinner time, many have actually included them in their lunch and dinner menus for all of us New Yorkers to enjoy. Check out our roundup of the best NYC spots to celebrate today’s carb heaven and eat up – this heavenly day only comes around once a year!
