I just signed on this morning and it appears I did not post my dinner post last night? I could have sworn I did. Ooops! Here’s a quick recap of post-lunch yesterday.
I “worked” under the umbrella in the backyard until about 5, and then had a yummy snack of 2% cottage cheese, a sliced banana & 5 grapes. It was good and looked like this:
Dinner was outside on the deck under the umbrella again, and it involved this huge plate of meat:
DELICIOUS juicy grilled pork chops! Mmmmmmm
Here was my plate:
With some brussels & carrots. I would be proud to say I finished that chop, but I didn’t. I left about a third of it behind…
With a side sally:
Anddd these beauts came to visit in the canal!
Dessert was .8 ounces TJ’s 72% dark..and then dessert #2 was 2 Flying Dog Road Dog porters 🙂 Both were equally delicious!
Anddd on to this morning. A DELICIOUS new breakfast!!
The mix for one big pancake included:
1/4 c. Quinoa Flakes
1/8 c. Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 Tbsp Ground Flax
1/3 Tsp baking powder
2 Tsp brown sugar
1/4 c. Almond Breeze
2 Tbsp egg whites
Tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 c. water
I mixed together all the dry ingredients in a bowl:
And then slowly added the wet ingredients one at a time. I hadn’t planned on the water, but the batter was a little sticky, so I added it. Into a pam-ed nonstick skillet it went:
And came out golden and fluffy!
Perfection topped with a sliced banana and 2 tsp pure maple syrup:
Overall I think the quinoa flakes were a very interesting addition to the pancake. You could definitely taste the quinoa flavor, but it was good! And quite a fantastic way to pack in some early morning protein if you ask me!
Anddd now I have tons of work to catch up on after this marathon post. Have a good day!
