- 1/2 cup – Rolled Oats
- 1/2 cup – Cottage Cheese (full of calcium caseinate)
- 1/2 cup – Egg Whites
- 1/4 tsp – Baking Powder
- 1/4 tsp – Cinnamon
- 1/4 cup – frozen or fresh raspberries (or other fruit)
- 1/2 cup – Whey Protein
- 1 Mix all the ingredients, except raspberries, in a food processor and blend until nice and smooth. Remove the blades and delicately fold in the raspberries. Coat a non-stick pan with a little cooking oil if you want and heat it over medium heat. When the pan is hot enough, cook your pancakes one at a time until set and golden, about 1-2 minutes per side. I like to divide my batter into 3 small pancakes, but you may choose to make one large, 2 medium or 3 small pancakes, whatever works for you.
Everyone and their mothers make protein pancakes. I find these make the best ones. Granted you can just mix protein powder, eggs, and oatmeal but I swear they don’t always turn out great, good but not great. Adding fruit makes it TEN times better though 🙂 These are quick and easy and great for pre or post workout.
Onto my life. Actually never mind. I am a shit show.
Gym Life: Getting back into the gym and although I am not pushing myself as hard as I can, I am still trying and still doing as much as I can. Hopefully working out everyday will finally get me to where I need to be physically and mentally and even better than the day before.
I AMMMMM however taking my first Crossfit class tomorrow with a little lady I met on Instagram. Pretty freakin excited not gonna lie. I have been wanting to do Crossfit for awhile but its always been so expensive and I have never lived near a close gym. Well just so happens I was texting this girl and she asked me if I ever thought about doing it and my immediate response was “FUCK YEAH!” So tomorrow morning, bright and early I will be having my ass handed to me. I think I would actually do really good at this shit but I suppose I’ll find out tomorrow haha.
What is CrossFit?
CrossFit describes its strength and conditioning program as “constantly varied, high intensity, functional movement,” with the stated goal of improving fitness (and therefore general physical preparedness), which it defines as “work capacity across broad time and modal domains.” Workouts are typically short—20 minutes or less—and intense, demanding all-out physical exertion. They combine movements such as sprinting, rowing, jumping rope, climbing rope, weightlifting, and carrying odd objects; they use barbells, dumbbells, gymnastics rings, pull-up bars, kettlebells, medicine balls, and many bodyweight exercises. These elements are mixed in numerous combinations to form prescribed “Workouts of the Day” or “WODs”. Hour-long classes at affiliated gyms, or “boxes,” typically include a warm-up, a skill development segment, the high-intensity WOD, and a period of individual or group stretching. Performance on each WOD is often scored and/or ranked to encourage competition and to track individual progress. Some affiliates offer additional classes, such as Olympic weightlifting, which are not centered around a WOD.
