Happy, happy Wednesday friends!!!
I hope everyone’s week is flying by like mine is. It’s the last full week of school, so I’ve got tons of things to get done and it’s making my week shoot on by! No complaints from this tired teacher, that’s for sure.
8:15 – Oat Bran Protein Pancakes
I had heard of oat bran pancakes before, but I decided to play around with a few different recipes and modify them to add some extra protein! Lemme tell ya, this was a recipe success!
3 tbsp oat bran
2 egg whites
1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
1/4 cup fat-free cottage cheese
1 packet of Truvia
Mix all the ingredients together and cook over medium heat as you would a regular pancake. FULL of protein, and so delicious!
10:00 – Snack
Handful of pistachios (recycled picture but I was JUST as happy to chow down! )
12:00 – Lunch
Mixed greens, chicken sausage, tons of veggies, and some cottage cheese and lemon juice. Best homemade salad I’ve had in a long time. I was tempted to lick the bowl clean (it was indoor lunch and my students were around me… otherwise I totally would have.)
4:00 – Snack of unpictured cut up veggies and some onion dip (made with Chobani greek yogurt instead of sour cream.)
7:00 – Dinnertime
After a long gym session, Bobby and I were both starving when we got home. Luckily, dinner came together in a flash! I drizzled some brussel sprouts with olive oil and sea salt before throwing them in the oven for about 25 minutes to roast. While they were cooking I broiled some salmon. A sprinkle of sea salt and pepper on top before putting it under the broiler until it looked cooked to my liking! Easiest and tastiest recipe I’ve found yet!
8:15 – Dessert
After dinner I wanted something to satisfy my sweet tooth but not ruin all the hard work I had put in at the gym earlier. Arctic Zero Ice Cream to the rescue! I still have a hard time believing the nutrition stats, but I guess it goes to show you some things are too good and ARE true! I had a few spoonfuls of this before settling down to relax with Bobby and catch up on some TV.
I hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday!
Do you indulge when your sweet tooth asks for it, or do you try to keep it at bay??
What is your favorite snack of ALL TIME? Mine has to be Honey Wheat pretzels dipped in cottage cheese. Yum, now I need that. Now.
and of course… What was the best thing you’ve eaten this week so far?!
