Protein Pancake

Thursday, December 17, 2009

I am at Starbucks studying and the sweet sound of Christmas music fills me with this over-whelming sense of joy. I am smiling for no reason because there's this sense of warmth and distant happy memories that are playing in my mind. I am drinking a Non-fat Pumpkin Spice Latte as I type.

I was suppose to have my free training session this morning, but my trainer called to me tell me he locked himself out of his apartment with his keys. I didn't mind, I used this opportunity to study for my exam today.

 I was a little relieved because I was scrambling to pack my clothes and scarf down my breakfast. So after he called, I took my time eating my protein pancakes. It was a nice change from just eating oatmeal!

Chocolate protein pancake! (two stacked on top of one another)

  • 3 egg whites

  • 1/3 cup of quick oats

  • Cinnamon

  • Pumpkin Spice

  • 1/4 teaspoon of Vanilla extract

  • 1 packet of vanilla stevia

  • 1 scoop of Chocolate Whey

I whisked everything together and cooked it over a griddle with cooking spray.
Microwaved 1/3 banana w/ cinnamon and drizzled it with Almond Butter.

It was delicious and I was glad I took my time eating it. Gulped it down with a nice cold cup of Almond Milk. It was very cold (the refridgerator was on it's coldest level.)

********Last night:

I made myself a green monster. It is so much easier to use frozen spinach because I don't have to worry about fresh spinach wilting, so I have frozen spinach readily available anytime. It also made the GM very thick and much more frozen (the way I like it).

  • Frozen Spinach

  • Unsweetened Almond Milk

  • 1 scoop Vanilla Whey

  • Frozen Medley (strawberry/mango/pineapple)

  • Wheatgrass powder

  • Salba

  • Chia seeds

It was very Green, as far as color and taste. I used my Magic Bullet, I have a love hate relationship with it. I love that it is easy to clean, I hate that it is not powerful enough to crush and blend frozen items. I spent a majority of the time trying to blend in my frozen fruits, making sure I don't over heat the motor.

My unpictured oats from yesterday. I am loving the blackberries! my first time using it in oatmeal.

I also bought cute boots this week. I've always wanted boots but didn't think I could pull it off, but this week I just went for it. This can dress up any outfit. The cool thing about these boots is that it is versatile. It can be worn short or long (if you remove the straps above). two for the price of one! $30

I hardly have the time and desire to treat myself. The only thing I ever splurge on is FOOD. That is where all of my money goes, but this week I've gotten myself into this phase of buying things for myself. Yikes! it's got to stop!

I was almost this close [--> ] to buying a Dior Mascara last night, because my mom has it and it works magically. But I didn't because I know that there are a lot of department store brands that works as good. If you are looking for an affordable mascara that works great: Revlon Lash Fantasy works great!

Taylor Swift even uses it. I am so influenced with a lot of the things I buy from media and posts, I am a consumer at her worst!

But I've used and re-bought this mascara for so long (three times counting, soon to be four).

I'll be working a lot during my break so that will make up for my spending.

I think there are good splurges and guilty splurges.
My good splurges are on healthy groceries, and my guilty splurges are on Starbucks!

What is yours?

I am definitely guilty of splurging @ Starbucks too often. Oh, how I love T.Swift. I think I'll go buy that mascara just because : )
