Happy Friday, friends!!
Today’s FAVORITES include 2 recipes, my new favorite breakfast, fave kitchen tool, new silverware and cups for the kids, plus more!
Let’s start with these delicious pancakes! They were SO good and filling. The protein in them it kept me full until lunchtime.
In a blender, mix these ingredients:
- 1/4 cup of Egg Whites
- 2 tbsp Protein Powder
- 1 tsp Flax Seed
- 1/2 Banana
- 1 1/2 tsps Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 2 tbsp Oats
**Next stir in 2 tbsp of blueberries into the mixture
- Heat 3/4 tsp of Coconut Oil into a frying pan. I used a silver-dollar pancake pan.
- Pour batter and cook pancakes for 2 minutes per side
- A spoonful of blueberries
- 1 tbsp of Maple Syrup (I heated the syrup up in the microwave)
- Sprinkle of Cinnamon
My FAVORITE Kitchen Tool
I had to mention this FAVORITE kitchen tool because I use it daily. It’s easy to use and clean, efficient, good quality, not expensive, and it doesn’t take up too much real estate on my kitchen counter. I love using it for smoothies, pancake batter, smoothie bowls, shakes, and soups. You can find it HERE.
New Kids Cups & Silverware
Luke is getting older and he doesn’t want to drink out of paw patrol and kiddie looking cups. It was time to purchase more mature looking cups for him and his friends. I like the natural earth tone colors and that they are made from natural bamboo. You can find them HERE.
Luke was not cutting his food the correct way and part of the problem was our silverware was too large for him to use it properly. I was tired of cutting his food and decided it was time to pull the trigger and purchase a silverware set. This set is affordable, the kids like the fruit on them and its a new FAVORITE for me to not have to cut up Luke’s food. Mission accomplished! You can find the silverware set HERE.
Creamy Apple Pie Smoothie
I’m loving making a variety of smoothies to keep things interesting, and give my body a variety of nutrients. This smoothie hit the spot and really does taste like apple pie!
New Favorite Breakfast
Have you tried this Acai Bowl from Trader Joe’s?? You can find it in the TJ’s freezer section. I was pleasantly surprised with how good it was. I highly recommend picking one up on your next visit to Trader Joe’s.
How GOOD does this look?!?!
