Greek Yogurt Protein Pancakes

One benefit of be unexpectedly sidelined from New Year’s Eve partying is not waking up with a hangover in the morning.

No hangover meant that I had no problem putting effort into making a yummy and healthy breakfast to ring in 2012.

I made myself a plate of strawberry banana Greek yogurt pancakes by blending the following in a small bowl with an immersion blender:

  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 6-ounce container Chobani strawberry banana Greek yogurt

After topping the pancakes with a sliced banana and syrup, it was time to eat!

Definitely a yummy way to start the day.

I actually have a pretty bad case of the sniffles and feel all-around crappy and lethargic today. I really, really hope I’m not getting sick! I’m taking all of my vitamins and drinking lots of fluids to help ward of any impeding sickness. Booya!

Other than attending church, today has been spent at home with Ryan and Sadie. Ryan and I started reading The Maze Runner together a few days ago and are hooked!

I actually bought the book for us to read together months ago based off of a recommendation I received from Michelle who swore I’d love it since I seem to find dystopian novels compelling.

She was right. It’s gripping! I think we may finish it today and I highly recommend it to any of you out there who loved The Hunger Games series or Divergent.

Other plans for the day include cooking up a New Year’s Day feast with Ryan, including all of the typical New Year’s Day foods!
