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!

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…

Deconstructed Taco! (….salad)

Tacos are great! So in an attempt to recreate a healthier version… I came up with this deconstructed salad.
It’s also great. Honest. You may miss the taco shell and cheeses – but you have to make sacrafices sometimes, right? This was satisfyiing enough for me anyway 🙂

It may look like a ton of ingredients, but a lot of that is spices that can be left out/exchanged. The majority of your time will be chopping fresh vegetables.
Enjoy!

Soup’s OK – but it’s no main course…

I like soup. Ok, I kinda like soup.

I just never want it for dinner, you know? It just doesn’t seem satisfying at all, almost a solid food’s garnish. Admittedly I’ve never actually made my own soup, until today. It was actually really good! Heavy on the garlic, so I”ll tone that down next time. I love posting recipes on my site for you, but it’s really for myself too. I’ve made so many dishes in the past that were simple, healthy and really good… all to be forgotten. Selfish? Not entirely! I get many of my recipes online and try to tweak them for my own liking, or to cut out ingredients I either don’t have, or think is excessive. So if any look familiar that’s because they’re all out there 🙂

Take this Butternut Squash & Asian Pear Soup Recipe – heavy cream? Not necessary when you have the squash. I used almond milk instead, but I’m convinced water would have been fine. The curry addition is a good idea too.

Check out the recipe here – feel free to use as a based and adding your own flavour! Just don’t eat is your main dish.

Favourite Snack: Tandoori Masala Roasted Chickpeas

photo 1

This is a great snack that I usually make once a week, and bring in my lunch.

They don’t take much effort to make at all, just a little bake time. You can literally exchange any of the spices for something you like better; like garlic/chive/dill, cilantro/lime, sea salt and pepper, and so on. Many people do sweeter versions with cinnamon and sugar…so there are endless combinations. The process is the same for each.

Find the recipe here, and enjoy!
