EAT BREAKFAST!!! No way around it! You absolutely need to get your metabolism going and feed those muscles with some healthy, lean protein and good carbs first thing in the morning!!! I was watching Biggest Loser last night and Bob Harper pointed out that the one thing obese people have in common is they skip breakfast. So important to make sure you are eating something healthy in the morning! Whatcha cooking up today? Let’s start the day off right!!!
APPLE CINNAMON OATMEAL PROTEIN PANCAKES (adapted from The Lemon Bowl)
1½ cups oats
1 apple, shredded
1 banana, mashed
½ cup milk
2 eggs – whisked
2 scoops Chike Nutrition Vanilla protein powder
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
¼ teaspoon salt
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside.
Heat griddle or non-stick saute pan over medium-high heat. Spray with non-stick spray once hot.
Pour pancakes on to griddle, ¼ cup at a time, and
cook until first side is browned – about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook additional 2-3 minutes or until second side is browned.
Continue working in batches until all of the pancake batter is gone.
