All I’ve seen plastered across social media today (TORTURE) is pictures of everyone’s pancake stacks, dripping in syrup or Nutella but Pancake Day does not have to be avoided – there are healthy options out there! The recipes for Protein Pancakes are all over the internet; but these are not always easy and often unsuccessful from what I have read!
Tonight Brandon found an easy two-ingredient recipe, tried it and it worked! Here it is;
- 1 Medium Banana
- 2 Whole Eggs
Blend the ingredients and then fry using a small amount of butter or oil. It really is that simple! Make them small in order to get a good thickness. They don’t win any awards for beauty but they taste amazing and make for the perfect healthy indulgence!
Today was my first day back in the gym after 3 days off and I loved it! I’m hooked on working out – there’s definitely worse things to be addicted to. I felt refreshed, had loads of energy and I worked my body HARD!
My workout was;
- 5k Run (350kcals burned)
- Bicep Curls – 4 sets/12 reps (3kg)
- Skull Crushers – 3 sets/10 reps (3kg)
- Deltoid Raises – 3 sets/10 reps (2kg)
- Tricep Dips – 3 sets/10 reps
I’m using low weights when I work my arms as I’m not aiming to gain size but rather retain definition! I’m quite lucky as I already have naturally muscular arms and shoulders, meaning this does not require heavy lifting or 1000 reps of each excercise!
As I was back in the gym my intake increased:
- Black Grapes
- Graze BBQ Smokehouse Crunch Pack
- Chicken and Couscous
- Chicken w/ Fajita seasoning, Peppers and Onions
- 2 Banana Pancakes
And it’s off to bed before I do it all again!
