It’s finally Friday!!!! And have I got some fun stuff for you…
Well, Wednesday evening I did my 5k and then some… ended up just tacking on an extra mile. Shake and salad for dinner; nothing super exciting.
Yesterday morning I took a BodyPump class at 24Hour, and while Martha had me worried when she mentioned it in her previous post, I decided to give it a shot anyway. It was a pretty good class; I love anything where weights are combined with cardio, especially when I can make them heavy weights. My hamstrings are STILL in pain.
Work yesterday was BUSY… re-edited the kindle and print copies of the book for a giveaway that will happen next week. I’ll keep you posted on that.
When I wasn’t editing, I was drooling over photos of dessert and other baked things on these blogs:
Namely, I wanted pancakes.
I am a firm believer that pancakes should be eaten
everyday at least once a week. They should really have their own food group.
Unfortunately, even not on the cleanse, pancakes are not very nice to my insides (or my waistline). The fact of the matter is, you won’t get sexy eating nothing but pancakes (and if you do, I hate you).
That’s why I concocted a cleanse-friendly pancake recipe for me to enjoy
whenever the hell I want in moderation!
“But Sam, I’m not on your gross cleanse, why do I care about this recipe?”
Because, snarky reader, you can make this with any protein powder, or even your choice of flour for that matter. So maybe just be grateful I came up with some fan-flipping-tastic pancakes for you to cram in your face.
Just kidding, I love you. But really, cram these in your face, STAT.
Clean Carrot Cake Pancakes
- 2 scoops Standard Process Shake Powder (or 2 rounded T your favorite protein powder/flour)
- 1 T coconut oil
- 1/2 cup carrots (could sub zucchini to keep glycemic index lower, but I really wanted carrot cake)
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 dropper stevia (I used English Toffee; YUM)
- 3-4 egg whites (or 1-2 whole eggs)
- 1 T cinnamon
- 1 t ginger
Blend everything in a blender until mostly smooth; the carrots should still be a little chunky in there. Over medium heat, spoon pancake dollops into pan and help into a circle shape. (Don’t worry about making it too pretty; who cares!? It’s pancakes!!!) Cook about 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. If on the cleanse, serve with a small dollop of coconut oil; if you can eat to your heart’s content, try topping it with chopped nuts, coconut butter, greek yogurt or a little honey. Go crazy! PANCAKES! I think I have a problem…
What, one recipe not enough?
But because I love you so much, I guess I can hook you up…
Yup! That’s me! We’re going to try to have new episodes every week, but we’ll see how it goes with this book promotion and everything…
Have a recipe you’d like to see done, or a favorite food you need “cleaned-up?” Drop me a line! I’d love to hear from you 🙂
