Inspiring fitness lovers to have their cupcake and eat it too!

Good Morning!  Happy Friday!

If you follow me on Instagram you have probably noticed the past couple morning I have hit the repeat button.  I’m sorry to be so boring, but Wednesday and Thursday I had pancakes for breakfast.  These weren’t your average pancakes though.  These were amazing protein pancakes with a twist!

You have probably seen my blueberry protein pancakes before, (because I eat them at least once a week) and sometimes I even eat them in the car!  Who eats pancakes in the car seriously?  Only me, I guess.

Instead of just protein powder and egg whites I decided to add a little bit more substance to these pancakes and it worked!  It kept me full for about 4 hours.  That is a long time for me.

Here are the recipes:  Both turned out well!

Blueberry Double Protein Pancake:

Double the Protein, Double the Fun.  Protein= Oats, Cottage Cheese, Protein Powder! POW!

The first batch I made went like this:

  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 scoop protein powder

** Mix in a blender until smooth.  Pour batter into skillet and flip away!  Top with syrup and more blueberries 🙂

Batch 2:

  • 2 tbsp oats
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • splash almond milk

** Same Directions as above.  Topped with crushed walnuts and a few blackberries.

You need to try this protein packed breakfast asap.

You could also top these with melted Nikki’s Coconut Butter!  That will happen 🙂

Sunday was a baking day like usual…If you missed it I made blueberry muffin bake (Again? you ask, but it’s so good- my new favorite!) in the morning,  paleo pumpkin walnut muffins,  quinoa granola bars,  and I cooked some chicken and bacon for chicken Cobb salads for dinner, whoo!

So for breakfast I knew I wanted some kind of baked good.  I chose the Paleo pumpkin walnut muffin warmed in the microwave with a banana and melty almond butter! Yum. Quick and easy for a nurse on the go!

LUNCH

I had a bunch of leftovers:  turkey meatloaf muffins, moroccan inspired quinoa salad, and some chopped veggies.  There was also a bag of pita chips lying around at work so I grabbed a few handfuls 🙂 I love pita chips!

After dinner last night I had about 85 Girl Scoot Shortbread Cookies while I watched the bachelor!  Thanks mom for bringing them over (sarcastic).  I purposely didn’t buy any this year because I knew some would wind up at my house one way or another!

This is how I felt after!  This is one HUGE cookie.

For some reason I love these the best!

Have a wonderful day!
