Quick and Nutritious Dinner!

Greetings squad!!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a nutrition post and last night we had the perfect quick and nutritious dinner! Right now my girls are knee deep into soccer practice and games. We have lots of late nights between that and my teaching schedule. There isn’t a lot of time or desire at the end of the day to make a healthy meal. Well Trader Joe’s to the rescue once again!

Protein Pancakes

Greetings and Happy New Year squad!!

I hope you are all feeling motivated and excited to attack 2016! I know I am! Today we’re talking Protein Pancakes which is part of my New Year’s Meal Plan. These pancakes are fabulous. Packed with protein, fiber and clean, simple ingredients.

  • 1/2 to 1 full cup of oatmeal, 1-2 eggs, 1/2 cup cottage cheese, sprinkle of cinnamon and a dash of vanilla extract if you’d like. Mix well. If you need more moisture add a little water or nut milk of choice.
  • Cook in skillet like a pancake. Be sure to really spray your pan well. These are a bit stickier than regular pancakes.
  • Top with a nut butter of choice or coconut oil. Yummy!

A couple tips, you might have to play around with the measurements of your ingredients. Today I made 6 good sized pancakes that I packed in foil and placed in the fridge. That way they are ready to go for a couple of days. To make 6 pancakes I did a full cup of oatmeal and 2 eggs. I’m not afraid of egg yolks so I use the whole thing! You can of course do 2 egg whites if you’re not into yolk. I topped my pancake with Trader Joe’s Crunchy salted peanut butter with flax and chia seeds. I love this stuff! It just melts beautifully on a warm pancake.

Download my meal plan today and you will find a selection of healthy recipes. My plan is to help you make excellent food choices everyday. It’s not a starve yourself program and it’s not about what you CAN’T eat! It’s about eating consciously, starting each day with a plan and feeling healthy and strong in 2016! Pick it up today!!
