Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Hooray for a fun holiday! I love the collage of green I’m seeing everywhere today.
Are you wearing green today?
You bet your booty I am!
When I saw this t-shirt a couple years ago, I scooped it up immediately.
Are you Irish?
I’ve always felt a little left out on St. Patrick’s Day since I’m not even the tiniest bit Irish, so this t-shirt makes me feel better about my German and Swedish heritage (at least I think that’s what I am).
I thought about trying to make something green for breakfast, but that idea went out the window pretty quickly when I remembered the recipe I saw in Oxygen magazine yesterday for chocolate protein pancakes.
Chocolate for breakfast? Yes, please.
I only needed three ingredients to make the ‘cakes.
I blended 1/8 c. cottage cheese, 2 egg whites and a scoop and a half of All the Whey chocolate peanut butter cup protein powder with my immersion blender until I had a smooth batter.
After cooking the pancakes on the griddle (two minutes per side), I was ready to diiiig in.
I topped my pancakes with sliced strawberries and syrup and enjoyed them with a hot mug of tea.
The pancakes were absolutely delicious!
I think they would also be yummy dipped in Greek yogurt. Somethin’ to think about for the future…
Today’s workout was a goodie! I took a BodyPump class and followed it up with 25 minutes of light cardio on the elliptical.
Great way to start St. Patty’s Day!
Hope the luck of the Irish is with you today!
