Good Eats!

So, I feel like I have been making more treats than I normally did before I started this 360 days of no sugar thing! Maybe because my husband continues to request a weekly treat . . . is he doing it to test me??? Well I haven’t broken yet and am doing great! I’m really focusing on finding healthy alternatives (like a few recipes I’m going to share below!)

I also feel like I have to talk about and document all these treats I’ve been making and abstaining from. It is empowering. So, I’m sorry if any of these make you crave sweets! But, do not worry, I will share a yummy recipe for some Cinnamon Swirl protein bars that tastes more like a breakfast cake, or bread.

But, before we get into treats, we have to talk about this amazing dish I had at Jaco’s last night! I am not a huge fish person, but I’m working on bringing it into my diet more often because of the health benefits. This was a Mahi Mahi with pureed celery root and grill asparagus. Oh my lanta it was so yummy! If you are ever in Pensacola, go check out Jaco’s on Palafox Pier! Sam and I got to watch the sunset overlooking the ocean and a whole bunch of expensive yachts. Epic.

And, here are the scones I made Sam tonight. Don’t they just look delish? I’m not giving you the recipe for these. You don’t need it.

And here are my awesome Cinnamon Swirl Protein Treats! I originally got the recipe from this girl’s blog called Mouthwatering Motivation. So, head on over to her blog to check out the recipe (since she made it, not me). Mine don’t look quite as good as hers because I didn’t put peanut butter on top of mine. But they sure were scrumptious!

And now for a recipe from me! Because this one I created on my own from a conglomerate of recipes I’ve been trying over the past few months. These are called Delicious Berry Protein Pancakes. And these are hands down the best protein pancakes I have EVER Made! They almost taste like the real deal. They have yet to pass the husband test, but if they do I’ll let you all know!

196Here are the ingredients!

27g oat flour

12g oats

18g Trutein Cinnabun protein powder (this stuff makes all the difference)

2 egg whites

1 egg

110g Chobani Plain Greek yogurt

1t vanilla extract

1t baking pow

dash of salt

stevia to taste

Mix it all up. Fry em up. Eat em up.

I topped mine with 120g of frozen berries that I microwaved and sprinkled with stevia.

Makes 3 large pancakes! Macros: (1/3 of recipe or 1 pancake) Cal: 152, Fat: 3.3g, Carb: 17g, Protein: 14.6g

I ate 3 the other day because I was combining 2 meals. In the future I’ll have to halve it!

But Seriously, oh my gosh I could eat these every day! These may be the best pancakes I’ve ever made!

 

On to a happy note. I PR’d on my pullups last week! So happy with myself. I used to not be able to do even 1 chin-up, then I could do 8 chin-ups, and then I couldn’t do 1 pull-up . . . and now I can do about 4 on a good day! Check out this post about my pullup goals!
