I thought I’d do a quick update on how the Paleo diet is going. I’ll admit…I’m hungry and a little tired, but feeling better every day I continue to stay strong! I’m trying to get into a routine so that I don’t sit around wondering what I should eat. In the mornings I have a greek Vi shake within an hour of waking up and before my workouts. Today after my spin class I made a delicious Vi shape pancake soooooo good. I posted the recipe HERE. I cook up extra food at dinner to have as lunch or snacks throughout the day and also bought a bunch of Larabar’s for a quick grab and go. So far so good. One week down, five more to go! Looking forward to my cheat meal!!!
Yeah yeah I know…it’s Tuesday. Better late than never right? School started and Cole had his first day of Kindergarten. Tear. He’s such a big boy…so I’ve been a little preoccupied!
So usually I will make a dinner to post for my Sundays with Cyndi, but if I were to do that from this Sunday here would be the ingredients and instructions…
leftover Chipotle burrito bowl
On Saturday night, go to Chipotle, get a burrito bowl, don’t eat it all, put in fridge, reheat Sunday.
Sooooo instead you get breakfast!
I’ve been playing around with different recipes trying to find a yummy Vi Shape pancake recipe that I can be addicted to. Some I’ve made are too thick, some too runny, etc. So if you don’t have the Vi Shape shake mix, you can try and substitute another protein powder, but I can’t guarantee that it will turn out the same…or you can just buy the shake mix and love life!! 😉
2 scoops Vi Shape shake mix
2 TBSP ground flaxseed (just bought a big bag at Costco, cause it’s Paleo friendly!)
1/4C unsweetened coconut almond milk
2 egg whites
Blend all ingredients in a blender and pour onto frying pan on med/high heat. Turn when edges look cooked (be careful to make sure the bottom is nice and brown otherwise you’re going to make a mess when you try and turn it). Serve with 1 TBSP peanut butter (my fav is Skippy all natural with honey) or whatever you want to put on it!!! SO easy, SO yummy!
