Well in living and accepting a clean eating lifestyle some changes might have to be made to your diet and subsititutions or restrictions may need be depending on your goals. In my case, I am on a “cutting” diet, trying to cut down my body fat and gain and tone lean muscle. In doing that, I had to find foods to vary up my diet a bit so for Breakfast I decided to try Protein Pancakes. This wasn’t my first attempt I had tried Michael Kory’s Protein Pancakes but the taste and consistency wasn’t for me. In search of something tolerable I googled a search and found two recipes that were actually pretty good.
The first is by Joy Bauer http://www.joybauer.com The recipe is as follows:
1/2 c. rolled oats (quick Cooking)
4 egg whites
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Spray a nonstick pan with cooking spray and cook like a regular pancake. It tastes pretty good and is filling. I only ate one pancake with peanut butter a scrambled egg and turkey bacon but I’m sure you can have two pancakes with bananas or blueberries and some sugar free syrup. Just try it experiment and have fun!
The second recipe for Protein Pancakes I tried are courtesy of http://www.paleomg.com and have three simple ingredients I swear that’s what it says in the recipe. The recipe is as follows:
2 bananas mashed
2 eggs whisked
1/2 cup of vanilla protein powder. Prepare the same way as you would a regular pancake. They cook up pretty nicely and smell really good and overall look more pancake like. As far as the taste I haven’t tried them yet but I’m sure they’ll taste great.
There are two more recipes I haven’t tried which also look good and are similar one comes from a Biggest Loser alum Hannah Curlee who runs http://www.myfitspiration.com with her sister Olivia Ward Biggest Loser winner season 11.
This one looks really good too it’s by Julie Harrington a registered dietician http://rdeliciouskitchen.wordpress.com/2013/08/04/chocolate-protein-pancake/ I just might have to try this this weekend.
You can eat some of the things you want while cutting you just have to find the right changes and subsititutions. Let me know what you think and remember Eat Clean!
