It’s strange how your body reacts from food. Saturday night was Mike’s mom’s birthday and we went out to celebrate. Lets just say 2 pieces of bread, fried calamari and a huge piece of carrot cake later- my body was screaming-PLEASE STOP! It was all sooo delicious but I was paying for it the next day. Sunday I was really achy (half just from being sore), I had a headache all day and above all just did not feel good. I went to bed early- and woke up late. I had every intention of going to the gym this morning but when I woke up for my alarm- my body was telling me I needed a few more hours of shut eye. So I listened and thank god I did. I woke up 2 hours later like I had just awoke from a coma- I guess I really needed some sleep! However, I feel 100x better this morning and I will be at the gym this afternoon!
For breakfast this morning, I have been looking for recipes to incorporate my protein powder without it being in a shake. So I came up with these: Blueberry Vanilla Protein Pancakes
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 cup gluten-free flour
1 scoop of vanilla creme whey protein powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
splash of cinnamon
1 cup blueberries
I suggest smashing the blueberries up. The gluten-free flour makes the batter liquidy and the pancakes not very fluffy so it was a little difficult to flip them and keep the blueberries from rolling all over the pan. This won’t be a problem if you substitute with another kind of flour. I also added some honey on top for a bit of sweetness
They were yummy-very vanillaey. And I love pancakes so these hit the spot.
Now that I’m starting my day on the right foot- I have lots to do! Going back to school. Later tonight I’ll post my workout as well.
Have a great day!
