Good Morning and Happy Monday to you!

I had a pretty relaxing weekend, how about you guys?  Nothing too crazy happened except for I watched a lot of Breaking Bad.  I have to admit I have been a blog slacker lately, and I am blaming it on my new obsession with that show!  My husband and I are catching up on Netflix and we are on Season 3!   We watch at least one episode per night (sometimes up to 3 or 4!) so if I miss a day of blogging that is why!  We have the new seasons on DVR for when we are all caught up.

1.  Because of my new obsession I saw this fun game on a “Blood Sweat and Cheers”.  What a great way to spend a Sunday night….I could have some really sweaty, or drunk nights if I played this throughout all the seasons on Netflix 😉

Workout like an addict

2.  My sister-in-law just announced recently that her and my brother are expecting their first child!!  Yay, I am going to be an aunt!

5.  Ava Anderson Non Toxic Products

Ava product for the body.

I get an itchy rash type thing on my legs, and it is usually after I shave.  The dermatologist has classified it as “folliculitis- or inflammation of the hair follicle.  This has been going on for years and I always have to buy expensive lotions, only use disposable razors a couple of times and get shaving cream for sensitive skin.

The most recent product I have tried and LOVE is the Ava Anderson hand and body lotion.  This stuff is the bomb!

The ingredients are awesome too.  Here are some of them:  organic aloe vera gel, organic coconut oil, organic shea butter, sweet almond oil, etc etc.

I hope you try some of these fun finds 🙂

Do you watch Breaking Bad?

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 🙂
