Protein pancakes! made in a blender with no refined grains, no refined sugar, and loads of healthy proteins. I reeeeeeally like where this is headed.
Pan-Cakes! Pan-Cakes! Pan-Cakes!
With peanut butter and chocolate chips and a little bit of maple syrup, which is just how I ate them growing up, post-swim-team practice, sometimes mushed together into a big pile of “scrambled pancakes” because me and my teenage squad didn’t know what we were even doing with a pan and a spatula, but we knew we needed those chocolate-kissed carbs in our systems immediately, stat, SOS, even if it meant squished together into pan remnants topped with sprinkles and chocolate chips and syrup.
This is that, reincarnated.
Grown up. Diva Status. Healthier. More Delicious.
Also: I don’t really swim anymore. I’m having a mid-post moment of sadness about that. I should get back into the pool routine again, right? The water is seriously so cold sometimes that I would consider not going just to keep my body from freezing solid, but really, I should get back in. Swimming gave me the hungriest appetite ever, and these days with my *literal* job being making food and eating? Yes and yes. We need to make these two things work together.
Pretty sure I once wore a t-shirt that said swimming is life, the rest is just details. Anyone? Ironically this is still true for me still except it’s about food. Food is life and the rest is just details and PLEASE someone make that into the next gen of those t-shirts. I will be at the front of the line when you launch.
Friends, may the odds be ever in your favor to have protein pancakes for breakfast all summer long. So you can swim or get your brain and body powered up do whatever else it is that you do.
Like, just try to look at this and tell me it doesn’t look good for you.
