You can make your pancakes ahead and freeze them. All you have to do to warm them up is pop them in the toaster.

today I tried peaches and kiwi with my cottage cheese, it was really yummy too!

I'm used to ranting without anyone noticing ;) so thanks for being a seldom listener LOL :)

I've been off work for the last few days so its been nice to decide what I want to eat, and make it, and plan for a really great meal.

I found an awesome recipe for whole grain pancakes, which i made extra and kept them for leftovers and they taste just as good re-heated!!

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup oatmeal (coarse or blended to fine consistencey if you like)
1/4 tsp salt
pinch of cinnamon, cloves and allspice
1/2 cup applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
3/4 skim milk (add more to desired thickness)
1 tbsp of baking powder

Mix all ingredients until smooth, adding small amounts of milk to desired thickness. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, put dallops onto a pan pre-sprayed with spray oil to coat and cook at medium heat. Add about 5 or 6 blueberries directly after putting the batter on the pan. Flip when bubbling and cook until it bounces under your finger but isnt squishy.

Serve with 1/2 cup of extra blueberries and 2 tbsps of low calorie syrop, or 1/2 cup of yogurt of your choice with the berries. Refrigerates and freezes well for use another time. I LOVE THEM. You can also add 1/4-1/3 cup cottage cheese mashed with a form or the same amount of ricotta cheese for extra protein.

let me know how you like them :)

I've been getting in the routine of preparing my breakfast before I go to bed... Routine isn't routine unless it's made one, right?

Either myself or my boyfriend boils a dozen eggs for the week, and we store them in water to cover, in a tupperware container (change it if it starts to get discoloured). I'll eat 1-2 eggs a couple times a week, and usually I'll have a slice of whole wheat toast with whatever topping I please (low fat/low salt/low cal of course) and I'll take a yogurt to eat on the go along with a bag of cherries, or another kind of fruit. Everything except the toast is night before prep. It really only takes a few minutes. Also I really like 1/3 cup cottage cheese, 2 tbsp ricotta cheese (not necessary but I like it), 2 tbsp fat free yogurt, and 1/2 cup of whatever fruit you like (I like strawberries, blueberries and pineapple--be careful with pineapple as it makes it curdle if left together too long). I add a dash of splenda sometimes to add a little more sweet, and sometimes a pinch of cinnamon or clove powder too. Try different variations. If you don't like the texture blend it up. Its so high in protein, its satisfying. Yumm!

I always try for one type of food group at every meal and always aim for high protein/high fiber within those catagories. I find if I have a high carb meal I compensate with cravings for a week because of it. :( I hate it!!

A few things I do want to pass along: if your body is not used to having a high fiber intake, your stomach will get crampy and give you lots of gas. Increase your fiber intake slowly over a period of a month. Not only will you feel better for doing it slowly, it can make you constipated if you don't drink enough water to compensate for the increased fiber!!

Also, many dieticians I have seen in the last few years have told me this: Have one 1/2 cup (yes half cup) of juice a day if you MUST, but its no better than drinking pop. There is not a lot of good coming out of juices other than sugar and flavour. Because of this, you will drink it and have cravings for more food within 2 hrs. Milk is a much better beverage for the morning, as it has protein which has sustenance.

Check the labels on your protein bars. Understand the labels and how they are good at hiding sugar on them. They are called many things these days, I'm sure more I've never even heard of. The harder bars are so because they have less oils and fat, which make bars soft and pliable.

Food is FUEL, and although I understand how life is busy, we need to make time to fuel our bodies.

sorry for the rant :) I love cooking/baking and find that without preparation, I fail, as I get sucked into the rushed lifestyle that being on time wins, and meal prep takes second place :(

Those fiber one bars kill my stomach, the South Beach protein bars are pretty good. I've been eating those.

I had some leftover wheat tortillas from this weekend, so I topped one with 1T peanut butter and sliced fresh strawberries. It was filling and yummy!
