2 ingredient protein pancakes!

Ok- so like i’ve mentioned, Scott & I have been trying to eat uber healthy and 80-90% clean

with that being said, eating healthy can also get old. real fast. So in order to not get into that typical ‘i’m sick of veggies and oatmeal’ after day 4, i’ve been frantically searching the internet for new and tasty ways to eat clean and healthy.

 lets be honest, my toughest critic is my husband. I can either be strong against cravings or really really weak and binge eat on double stuffed Oreos along with him. So yes, variety (including healthy desserts) is extremely important.

breakfast has posed to be a problem area- we often don’t have a lot of time between me feeding Gordie and fixing Scott’s lunch and Scott getting ready and having to be out the door at a certain time in order to get to school-

So quick, healthy and delicious breakfast are a must- especially since were on the go all day long

so there is nothing more wonderful than and easy, two ingredient, HEALTHY, protein packed breakfast!

I found this little gem of a pancake recipe on one of my favorite fitness blogs- Blogilates! (and yes we use paper plates- we’s classy individuals.)

these pancakes are 100% natural- gluten free,low calorie and best but not least it’s EASY AND HEALTHY!!!!!

Now- for the recipe.

Protein banana pancake recipe!

Ingredients:

– 2 eggs

– 1 banana

WA-BAM! Thats it! So now you cut the banana up in a bowl and mix n’ mash the two eggs (Leave the yolks!!)  in till its a lovely frothy batter! it’s ok for it to have banana chunks. Oil a pan, preferably a skillet if you have one, with EVOO, Pam or coconut oil. Heat the pan to low-medium heat, scoop some batter in the pan and let it sit for 30-40 seconds and then flip! waaaa-laaa! you’ve got breakfast!

If ya wanna make it fancy and a little bit more complicated you can add in some cinnamon to the batter.

The pancakes are totally scrumptous as-is but you can totally top it with some low-fat plain yogurt and fruit preserve 🙂

heh. it kinda looks like an egg..

Summer pasta.

Yesterday i was to lazy to drag myself out of bed to make the hubs some lunch before he left for work in the morning. This whole 3rd trimester and not sleeping well is really throwing off my groove.

So i said i’d either bring it to him or he can come home and eat. He chose the latter.

I was just going to do the typical- sandwich, salad and fruit- but he pretty much has that everyday.

So i decided to file through my ever growing recipe board i have on pinterest!

and thats where i found this little gem

Quick, easy and extremely flavorful! I was happy, the hubs was happy and baby, im sure was in a food coma.

He went from hard kneeing and jolting to calm minutes after my first bite.
