Good Morning!

Peas and Crayons

Thanks Jenn for hosting ūüôā

Here I go with another WIAW and this is a great one because I had pancakes!!  You might have seen these on Instagram or Facebook and now I share the recipe with you!



BB prot pancakes 1

These are super easy because it is the exact same recipe as my Protein Waffles!


1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used UMP)
1 egg
1 egg white
1 tsp baking powder
1 stevia packet

Add in : Blueberries

bb prot pancake 4


Whisk all dry ingredients together until smooth.  Really whisk away!  
Slowly add in water until a batter forms.
Fold in blueberries.
Cook on each side for about 5 minutes.  
You may need to turn down the heat at the end and make sure the inside cooks without burning these little guys!

Top with more blueberries and whatever other toppings you desire. ¬†I used a little bit of sugar free syrup, just a touch ūüôā

This breakfast is less than 300 calories if you are wondering ūüôā

Holy YUM!


Okay on to my snacks.  After the gym I had my Beverly International UMP Protein shake.  This is the same powder I used in the pancakes.

I had a few errands to run so I also ate a banana.

Eric and I had a date night finally!  We went and saw Identity Thief and ate dinner at the same time!  They have a reserved 21 and up section where you can order food and drinks and the seats are so much more cozy.

I got the grilled chicken sandwich with a side house salad with balsamic on the side.  It was very good!

Halfway through the movie the waitress accidentally knocked over Eric’s drink and it went right in his lap! ¬†I felt so bad for him!


When I got home I snaked on some pistachios and a Chobabi bite while I packed lunches.

With Cheesy Sweet Potato Crisps from How Sweet It Is

Cheesy Sweet Potato Crisps

protein waffles 042


2 sweet potatoes, peeled
2 egg whites
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon rosemary
1/4 teaspoon pepper


Preheat oven to 425. Set a wire rack on top of a baking sheet. Spray rack with non-stick spray. (I actually forgot this step-woops)
Grate sweet potatoes (I used a food processor) and squeeze all the moisture from them. Less moisture= crisp up better in the oven.
Add sweet potatoes, egg whites, cheese, pepper, and rosemary in a large bowl and mix until combined.

Scoop out 1 tablespoon of potato mixture (I used an ice-cream scoop) and set on wire rack. Press as thin as possible. Repeat until potatoes are gone.
Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until potatoes and dark around the edges and crispy.
