Since I had some time this morning, I made a nice healthy breakfast for Mark and I. The last two days have been dismal to non existent in the nutrition department, so I went to town this morning concocting a healthy, nutrient packed meal!
|Looking very Patriotic!|
1/4 cup almond flour( wheat, soy, or traditional white flour can work too)
2 ripe bananas ( The original recipe calls for three, but I prefer just using the two)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/4 cup nut butter ( I have used almond, soy, and peanut butter)
optional* I add chia seeds while the pancakes are cooking for added goodness
- Place all ingredients in the immersion blender and blend away!
- Pour into a sprayed pan and cook away!
- Add berries if you'd like

-place a tbs of margarine and a tbs of garlic into the frying pan on high
- once hot, add baby spinach and 'shrooms
- While cooking, blend together 2 whole eggs and three egg whites
-add egg whites to veggie mixture and stir
* optional- add shredded cheese if you desire
What to do today....
Well other than my run (I'm still hopeful), I plan on getting together with my mom to plan a potential getaway for April vacation. We are thinking of visiting Destin FL, or Jamaica. I also need to grade MANY more projects!!!
Other exciting pieces of news:
Tomorrow I will participate in my first Cycle-a-thon for rare cancers! We are cycling at a gym in Boston, and I am super excited. The event was supposed to be Sunday 2/10, but was rescheduled due to our IMMENSE amounts of snow, driving ban, and parking restrictions. Tomorrow will be a ton of fun, and I'm thrilled to share that our team has raised almost $7,000!!!!!
