Fluffy Protein Banana Pancakes

 Delicious Fluffy Protein Banana Pancakes

I came up with this recipe, because I was trying hard to make my kids happy while sticking to my meal plan.

I am doing Body Beast and trying to feed my muscle.

They came out great.  I liked the texture.  They are more dense than normal non protein pancakes however, they are not as dense as many other protein pancake recipes I have tried.  And I have tried a few.  So when I told my family I was making protein pancakes again- well- it was not received well.  So the pressure was on!  And these lived up to their picky expectations. They are great tasting, have a great flavor, and good texture!

My oldest son ate 4! He is in the picture below.

Slow Cooker Brown Rice

Serves 8

Prep time: 5min

  • 2 C Organic Brown Rice
  • 2 Tbs Organic Coconut Oil/ Butter
  • 1-2 tsp salt (optional)
    IMG_1372.JPG

Directions:

  • If your slow cooker boils then I would use the butter to line crock. (finding a slow cooker that cooks without boiling food is important for good tasting food that has it nutrients still in it)
  • Add water and clean organic brown rice to crock.  Stir in Salt.  add butter cubes to top.
  • Place Lid on and turn to desired temp.
  • If this is the first time. I suggest checking the rice periodically. As each slow cooker is different. Do not open lid if it can be helped.  This slows down cooking time and loses the valuable moisture. Once you’ve made this- note the time it took and you’ll know for future rice recipes.
  • Enjoy

Water is Vital

Yes,  I  know you’ve heard it before!  

Yes, it’s worth saying again!  But this time LISTEN and ACT! 

 Being Hydrated should be a Priority as part of our health!

Water does so many important things:

  1. Fatigue Buster
  2. Muscle Fuel
  3. Clearer Skin
  4. Helps Control Calories
  5. Keep Kidneys Healthy
  6. Remedy for Headaches
  7. Carries Nutrition and Oxygen to Cells
  8. Cushions Joints

Just to name a few!

Do you track how much water your drink?  

Try it you’ll be surprised!  I’m willing to bet it is not enough!

Here is a simple equation for how much water you should drink-

body weight divided by 2 = how many Ounces of water per day

Water is boring you say- It doesn’t have to be!

Keep it simple and fresh! Be creative.

Add Organic Frozen Pineapple Pieces or Frozen Organic Blueberries to start.

I will be adding a whole page of recipes next week! Stay tuned!
