Base Recipe for LowCarb Protein Pancakes

Hey all! This is an oldie, but a goodie. Try this recipe – do it now.

I  posted this recipe for super clean protein pancakes right when I started this site. People LOVE them! Bonus that they’re extremely clean and tasty. I have these on the weekend usually when I want to spend some time in the kitchen with a coffee. It really doesn’t take that long, so they can actually be made during the week.

Now I know everybody has their own version of protein pancakes. I came across this one years ago and I’ve stuck with it. The reason being that it’s really clean. Some recipes get carried away with oats, “clean” flours, even sweeteners… but I like it simple. I know exactly what’s in these and they leave me satisfied. They sometimes turn out a crepe-like texture which is fine by me.

Consider this recipe a base – and add your own extras. Apples and cinnamon?  Pumpkin puree? Go for it!

New Journal! Introducing the TrainRite Compact Fitness Journal

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I was working on a new journal format completely based upon the feedback from my users over the past year. Again, thank you all who took the time out to give me feedback and allow me to create the best product for you. I’m thankful for all of the positive feedback I continue to receive for my traditional TrainRite Exercise and Fitness Journal. 🙂

So here it is: the TrainRite Compact Fitness Journal  – a truly collaborative effort from people like you. 

New Features:

  • Compact. Somehow more compact than the original, this version is also more a ‘traditional’ book shape making it strong and sturdy
  • More sets. Many of you animals wanted more than 4 sets per exercise as in the first journal, so you’re in luck – this book’s got 5!
  • More logging for cardio or classes. This version has 3 spaces per workout for cardio or other non-weight training activities.
  • We like notes. A space for notes! ‘Nuff said.

And as always…

  • No frills, no wasted pages.
  • Waterproof cover and backing
  • 10 exercises per workout
  • 90 workouts worth of logging
  • A planning chart for creating 12 unique workouts that is always with you

Quinoa Salad

Quinoa Salad

So I just wanted to post a quick photo of what I’ve basically been eating all week. It’s so simple to make and an amazing side to a protein (I prefer fish) and some steamed veggies. This recipe makes quite a bit if you’re eating it as a side like I do. I’m new to this quinoa business…but I really like it. I’ve also made some quinoa burgers which I’ll feature separately. Recipes will all be posted under the “FOOD!” section…
