Breakfast of Champions


Hello!  Happy Saturday! 

I hope you had a wonderful Friday night, and that you’ve taken some time to rest, relax and rejuvenate on this lovely Saturday.

This morning I woke up and watched Thursday’s Season Finale of Grey’s Anatomy.  It was crazy intense!  Anyone else catch it??? 

After a gripping two hours, I was in the mood for some breakfast.  But I wasn’t in the mood for eggs, or cereal, or oatmeal.  I wanted something filling, but light. 

I did a little food blogging research and decided on Protein Pancakes. 

I modified The Fitnessista’s recipe for Perfect Protein Pancakes.  And because I’ve decided to cut back on my dairy consumption, I decided to replace an egg white with Angela’s Vegan Egg White

Ingredients:

-1/2 scoop protein

-1 chia seed vegan egg white

-1/4 C almond milk

-2 T whole wheat flour

-1/2 tsp cinnamon

-1/2 tsp vanilla

-1/2 tsp packed brown sugar

This breakfast was super easy and quick.

First, I made the “egg white.”  I was a little skeptical, but I must say this is ah-mazing! 

I took 1 tsp of chia seeds and soaked them in 1/8 cup of water.  After about 3 minutes, they were seriously the consistency of an egg white!  I couldn’t believe it!

I mean look at this!  Chia seeds are my new favorite super food.

I then mixed all of the ingredients together in a small bowl.

Once the pan was good and hot, I added the batter and did some fancy unpictured flipping 😉

I topped them with a little Earth Balance, maple syrup, and sliced strawberries.

Who said the Breakfast of Champions had to be Wheaties???  These kept me full for more than 4 hours today!

Well, I’m off to do Yvonne Strahovski’s workout from Shape magazine and finish getting ready for the party. 

Have a great night!
