It's Pancake Day!



Happy Shrove Tuesday everyone!! Or as it's mostly called...PANCAKE DAY!!! And do you know what that means? Yes...you are indeed right, PANCAKES!

The expression "Shrove Tuesday" comes from the word shrive, meaning "confess". As today precedes Ash Wednesday it is tradition to make pancakes. These are associated with this day as a way to use up rich foods such as eggs and sugar before the fasting season (Lent). 

And I know some of you are put off with the amount of calories a pancake has in it...okay few of you are put off, but for those who are do not worry!
The NHS have said,“Within a healthy balanced diet, a man needs around 2,500kcal a day to maintain his weight. For a woman, that figure is around 2,000kcal a day". 
So lets say for argument sake, a pancake has about 200 calories in it per 100g. If you were to eat 3 pancakes it would add up to 800 calories so that leaves you more than enough for your lunch and dinner. 
But do you know what. ITS PANCAKE DAY for goodness sake! This only happens once a year so stop counting those calories and slap on the Nutella and smuther that thing in strawberries and cream! Hahaha.


Have a very sweet day guys, enjoy! :D
