WIAW 19: It Was All Good.

Happy Wednesday! In case you missed it, go check out the latest KINDSnacks giveaway - it’s extra special this month!!

Do you ever have one of those days where every single bite of food is delicious?

I actually try to make every day like that, because there’s just way too much good food out there to settle for something sub-par. In fact, there’s not much that bums me out more than having a bad meal at a restaurant (first world problems, I know).

Monday was one of those delicious days…. and it all started with breakfast.

After an early morning of teaching Spinning and Bodypump,I was craving pancakes! I came right home and whipped these up!

Peanut Butter Banana (high protein) Pancakes

3 T Peanut flour

2 T coconut flour

1 T egg white protein

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/3 liquid egg whites

1-2 T almond milk

sweetener of choice, to taste

Mix dry ingredients together in a small bowl. Add in egg whites and whisk gently. Add almond milk to reach desired thickness. Drop “piles” of 3 T full of batter onto a skillet over medium heat. Cook until edges are golden brown. Flip, and cook one additional minute.

I also cut up bananas and let them grill on the skillet for about 30 seconds on each side to top these off. Yummmmmmmm….

For lunch, I started with a salad made of romaine lettuce, roasted carrots and eggplant, cucumber, tomato and chopped peanuts.

I also had a bowl of “high protein cereal” that I made from 1/2 of a P28 flat bread.

(I promise that I’ll go into more detail about this one soon!)

A little later I munched on a few of these chickpeas that Heather sent to me (they’re so addictive!)

I also made a smoothie with Sunwarrior vanilla protein powder, peanut flour (again!), almond milk and one whole apple.

I sprinkled a little sea salt on top, which just makes everything better!

For dinner, I made smoky apple maple glazed tofu.

I got the idea for this from the amazing tofu that I had in Boulder, and am still trying to perfect the recipe (which I’m hoping to have ready for tomorrow). I had it along with roasted Brussels sprouts and sweet potato.

Dessert was a satsuma orange (I’ve been obsessed with these ever since discovering them last month!)

And a piece of Mexican chocolate.

That was an impulse buy from the store the other day. Can you blame me?!

Have a delicious day!

  1. All your meals do look incredible! I’ve been buying the Mexican Stone Ground Chocolate from Trader Joe’s–it looks like very similar packaging. It is SO GOOD. I love it! :)

  2. I’m excited that it’s citrus season…I bought delicious oranges and tangerines. Bummer that the tangerines are loaded with seeds, but they’re worth the ‘effort’.

  3. Wow…that all even sounds so good! and those pancakes….!!!

  4. Everything looks delicious! I need to try the protein pancakes.

  5. All looks delicious! Protein pancakes are such a great way to start the day and clementines are so in season at the minute – theyre deliciously sweet :D

  6. Wow – you’re right, everything does look delicious!

  7. everything DOES look good. I just pinned that smoothie for later.

  8. Ohhhh… today might have to be a pancake morning. I’m a sucks for PB, and those look insanely good. Miss you!

  9. You certainly did have a great day. Those pancakes look fabulous and I love the apple smoothie idea.

    You have a delicious day too! :)

  10. Yummm! You’re right, all of your eats sure do look delicious! I just love those days! I’m intrigued by your “high protein cereal”!

  11. I want those chickpeas!! =)

  12. Wow. It all looks soooo good! I love high protein b-fasts (I like protein french toast–soo good!)

  13. Totally digging the tofu! Looks yum! As do the pancakes!

  14. I am jealous you got to try the flatbread, but I LOVE the idea of ‘make your own cereal.’ I’ve been wanting to try something of the sort…the closest I’ve gotten was making my own flavored Cheerios. I did go through a phase of using flat-out wraps to make crackers, so I bet I could make a ‘cereal’ if I took a sweeter route.

  15. I am soooo obsesses with roasted chickpeas right now. And likely, forever.

  16. Your tofu dish looks tasty delicious & def something I would love to try!

  17. OMG neeeeeeed to see this p28 cereal recipe!!! :-)

  18. I made your Peanut Butter Banana Protein Pancakes this morning and they were SO good! I added flaxseed and chia seeds to the batter, which made them a little dry, but they were still tasty! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
