Hello Three Day Weekend!!

I made it another week! Even though this one was only a four day week! 🙂 yay! I have survived yet another week preceding Standardized testing, National Choral Competition, and AP Tests :/ , while attempting to make my other teenage commitments, i.e., social life, sleep, food, and then some sleep.

But when I woke up this beautiful spring morning, I was in for a shock…
snow?

Yep, snow. Having been born in July, this girl is NOT a fan of cold weather, especially in April. I don’t live in the Arctic Circle either..

Oh well! At least I’m sitting at home relaxing for a few minutes. And besides, a great breakfast makes any morning a good morning! I decided to start off my breakfast with my own recipe of a Chocolate Protein Pancake inspired by Peanut Butter Finger’s Chocolate Protein Pancake with my own twist.

In a bowl I mixed together:
* 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (mine has 100 calories and 18 g protein)
* 2 tablespoons of water
* 1 large egg white
* sweetener to taste ( In my case, a generous tablespoon of Splenda!)
* about a tablespoon of a mashed banana

Protein Pancake Ingredients

I then mixed these ingredients very well until the concoction was uniform and smooth and put it in a small skillet that had been sprayed with Pam. I let it cook until the top started to bubble, then flipped it. In the process of flipping, I totally mutilated my pancake… but it all tastes the same! 🙂 This pancake is hard to flip because it contains egg white, making it be more like an omelet to flip. I topped this pancake with some sugar free syrup, but any toppings would taste great! Next time I may try throwing on a few strawberries and maybe even whipped cream. How could that be bad? If I had wanted a more banana chocolate taste, I would have added more banana, but I could barely taste the tablespoon I did add.

Approximate Nutrition for Protein Pancakes:
130 Calories/25 grams of protein/5% DV Sodium

My breakfast was rounded up with some Yoplait Light Thick and Creamy Cinnamon Roll Yogurt (I am OBSESSED with this stuff) and a cup of coffee.

Now that I am completely stuffed, I’m going to try and catch up on a few things on my day off with some quality lounging and relaxation thrown in! 🙂
