Morning meals are traditionally packed with empty calories. But substitute a few ingredients and you can enjoy the same tastes and textures with fewer carbs, more protein, and just as many pancakes.
My team at Men's Fitness has compiled a list of easy swaps and delicious recipes to help you start your morning off right.
Here's just a taste of the recipes inside the September digital edition of Men's Fitness.
