My Take on Reduced Carb Protein Pancakes

Sometimes I struggle to break the habit of eating the same thing all the time, especially if I like it but I think it’s good to try and switch it up or eventually I get bored of eating the same thing I use to once love! So I decided to create my own simple take on protein pancakes for when I’m not working out.

Using the same principles I learnt on my 90 Day SSS Plan, I used my meal planner to work out a recipe.

It’s dead easy to make, from mixing it, to on the plate ready to eat in 15 minutes. Its fulfilling, sweet and delish so give it a whirl.

Ingredients

  • 40g MyProtein Powder (I’m still using Mocha flavour)
  • 100g 2:1 Eggs to Egg White
  • 3g Coconut Oil
  • 30g Sour Cream
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Ginger
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/2 Cardamom Pod
  • Garnish with Frozen Berries (I love Blueberries & Raspberries with it)
  • Drizzle with Honey 🍯

Mix the MyProtein powder into a bowl, add all the spices, stir in the eggs and sour cream until you get a batter mixture.

Check the batter and add a littel water as required to make the batter a dropping consistency.

Add the coconut oil to the frying plan and when it’s melted, whack in the batter and cook through.

Finish with a topping of frozen berries and drizzle with honey.

Serve and enjoy.

A Great Tip for Meal Planning – Number 2: Staying Focused 

Something which I find helps me stay focused and motivated each week, is planning my meals and workout days 1 week in advance, especially when I’m travelling away with work. I suppose you could plan ahead for longer but I find it difficult to plan longer than a week at time, as my work can take me all over the world and change so much in a month I’d be forever changing my Meal Planner. 

As part of my training plan, I eat 3 meals a day and 2 snacks. Depending on when I’m training or working out also depends on if I’m eating a reduced carb meal or not. 

My Weekly Meal & Workout Planner

I log which days I’m working away and which meals I’ll be eating in the hotel, which prevents me from making the wrong choices and feeling really guilty afterwards. 

I also log things like, snacks that are limited to 3 times a week and number them at the side to keep track of how many I’ve had in a week. Logging my meals and snacks helps me make sure I’m having a variety of foods each week, I’m terrible for eating a lot of the same thing and have found in the past it can hinder my weight loss. Suppose I’m a bit of a fussy eater! 

Planning ahead means we can buy all the food, prep the meals in advance and box them up to put in either the fridge or freezer, making it so much easier on the day to take the meals away with me. 

It’s definitely helped me, being organised and planning ahead is one of the keys to keeping focused and staying on track to a fitter and leaner lifestyle. 🙌

Joe Wicks Lean in 15 – Chocolate and Banana Overnight Oats

Think this is my new favourite post workout breakfast option – The Overnight Oats!

I actually kept seeing this recipe on Joe Wicks @thebodycoach instagram and Snapchat so I thought I’d give it a go, as it seemed dead easy to make in advance and you can eat it on the go! Happy days!  

All you need to do, is the day before you plan to excerise wack some oats in a bowl or Tupperware box, put a banana, protein powder (I’m using MyProtein Impact Whey Mocha flavour at the moment), almond milk and cocoa powder in a blender whizz it up and when it’s done pour it over your oats and stick it in the fridge overnight. When you want to eat it, just take it out of the fridge shave some dark chocolate over it and voila it’s done! 


I didn’t think I would like it cold but it’s actually really nice to eat, it’s full of chocolate flavour and it’s filing which is what I need after a workout! ⭐️ 

Beef Jerky Wars

Kings Traditional BBQ Jerky vs Laverstoke Park Farm Original Beef Jerky. 

In the search for the best Beef Jerky, 2 of my favourites I’ve come across so far are Kings and Laverstoke Park Farm. 

Both completely different tastes to each other but both proudly British, packed with protein and gluten free. 

Kings Traditional BBQ is sweet, slightly on the softer side to chew but thinner strips, made from British and Irish beef. Whereas Laverstoke Park Farm Original Beef Jerky is tougher, thicker chunks, made from British beef, no added sugar or additives and packed with a peppery taste. 

Kings Traditional BBQ Beef Jerky

Both are a great protein snack but for today I think the winner for me is the Kings Traditional BBQ Jerky as it’s sweeter, slightly easier to chew on and a touch more satisfying on my palate but it was a close call.
