Every Good Day Starts With A Good Breakfast
Lately I’ve been trying to eat healthy (It’s January 10th, isn’t everyone??), but I’m having problems finding something that keeps me full until lunch. I get up around 5AM and work out, then eat breakfast (usually something like oatmeal, protein shake, or eggs) and then don’t eat lunch until 12:00-12:30…by then I’m STARVING. In reality I’m starving by 10, but I usually get a coffee around then so my body knows that I’m not actually dying! Today I decided to try out a new breakfast that is a spin on the old classic: pancakes!
I started out with 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, 1 egg, 1/2 cup bisquick, and 1/2 cup milk. (I basically used the regular pancake recipe, but I cut the egg and milk in half, and only used 1/4 of the recommended bisquick – then added in my protein powder to make up the difference). I also added in a cup of sliced strawberries. You could add butter, syrup, chocolate chips, etc., but I kept it simple because I’m trying to stay health conscious.
Then I mixed all these ingredients together.
Once they were mixed together smooth I spooned them onto my griddle. (while they were cooking I sliced up my strawberries!)
And Voila! Chocolate Protein Pancakes with strawberries on top!
No added sugar, no butter, no syrup, yet still DELICIOUS and very filling! We’ll see how far this gets me in the day because these are so quick and easy they may have to become a staple!
