You Can Change- Just Put Your Mind to It!

19 Apr

This past weekend, I had the honor of competing in one of the biggest NPC Division shows in the Nation.  The WA Emerald Cup.  It was amazing fun and I came out in 3rd place.  All in all, felt great and even more so, when I looked at my first picture competing and then compared it to now.  In just a year’s time, I have realized that I have made amazing strides!  Just take a look!!!  The difference is truly amazing!  I was just a tiny thing when I first started out.  It is just mind-blowing to me!

Simple & Delicious Banana Protein Pancakes

9 Apr

These are delightful little pancakes that resemble banana bread and are a great choice to make for breakfast or even a yummy snack.  Only 4 simple ingredients to make them which makes them even friendly for a healthy diet.  Hope you enjoy!

In a blender:

3 ripe bananas

6 egg whites

2 cups of old-fashioned oats

1/2 cup of water (or maybe more depending on the thickness of your batch) Batch should not be runny-should be almost the consistency of cake batter.

**Optional ingredients***

1 pack of no calorie sweetener

1 tsp. of baking powder for extra fluffy pancakes

Blend well in your blender for 60 seconds.

Use either a skillet at 325-350 degrees or  a pan over medium heat.

To serve, you can do the simple sugar-free syrup or you can spread natural organic peanut butter like  Adams 100% natural peanut butter, along with slices of banana and sugar-free syrup  on top (my husband’s favorite way to eat them).
