I guess hard work and effort pays off huh?
Yesterday was a day that called for breakfast for dinner. So protein pancakes it was. Okay, so I cheated and used cottage cheese. I know I'm not supposed to have any form of dairy, but a little bit at one meal is not going to kill me. My real competition diet starts in June so it was my last pancakes for awhile.
Anyway, they were oh my god good. I combined:
- 1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese (mine had pineapple in it which I didn't realize til the end)
- 1/2 scoop chocolate whey protein powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 egg whites
The batter makes about 4 pancakes. I cooked them for about 5 minutes on each side.
For a healthy topping instead of syrup, which I'm not a fan of because its so messy-fresh fruit. I took about a handful of blueberries and melted them in the microwave for about 30 seconds. You get a delicious topping that is super healthy with only natural sugar.

What is one thing you're proud of lately?! Brag it up!
BTW- I'm so shocked by yesterday's post that so many of you love beets! I guess I just haven't had them the right way. You guys convinced me to give them a second chance.
