Well, that’s another holiday gone for the year. Has anyone else noticed how fast this year is going? We are fast approaching May, and as excited as I am to finish my MBA next month, it is also starting to terrify me thinking about trying to find a job within the healthy eating/nutrition industry. If anyone has any suggestions/job openings they know of, I would really appreciate any information!
As I could not really fly home to England for Easter Sunday, I decided to make the most of it by eating lots of Cadbury (of course) chocolate, and adapting my favorite post long run pancakes into a more festive creation after my 20 miler. I love these pancakes, they are high in protein, carbohydrates, and fiber, and are easy to make when all your muscles are too tired to do a lot of preparation. I also make this batter before I leave for my run, so it is ready upon return.
I thought these would be good, but they were even better than I expected, especially with this cream cheese glaze from Erica’s lovely blog I discovered yesterday. Of course I still drizzled syrup over the top, but I enjoyed the one without any just as much as the ones with. As I made a double batch, I am enjoying the leftovers today to start off this Marvelous Monday.
I present to you my new and improved, hearty greek yogurt pancakes! Happy Monday…..especially if you have the day off work! Unfortunately I still have classes today……but I am still feeling good about the week as I am going to New York for the day on Wednesday, and it is Penn Relays week!
- Each pancake is packed with 15grams of protein, and 45g of carbohydrates. Talk about the perfect post workout meal!
- Carrots contain lots of Vitamin A for a healthy immune system, and keeping that eyesight sharp in the summer sun. Carrots also have anti-inflammatory properties
- Pineapple contains manganese, which is crucial for bone strength and connective tissues
- Oats are high in fiber, and help keep you fuller for longer….meaning less of the munchies later.
- Nutmeg is great for pain relief, just what you need after a tough workout!
|Hearty, Healthy, Happy 🙂|
