I love pancakes, but I know that when I eat them A) I eat too much and feel sick afterwards B)I'm hungry like an hour later and C) I can feel my thighs inching towards one another. However, I have found a new recipe that sounds like dream. Here is our newest video, as well as the recipes to have a yummy/healthy brunch on Mother's Day.
Dara's favorite brunch ideas:
We at Peapod Fitness aim for high energy, high nutrition, and high taste. Go for locally grown ingredients to feel even better-good for you, good for the environment, good for us all! To read more about eating/shopping locally, we recommend THE REAL FOOD REVIVAL, by Sherri Vinton (amazon.com).
Fit and Fabulous Pancakes
1 cup of whole grain oats (NOT INSTANT)
1 cup of egg whites
1 small banana or 1/2 large banana, fairly ripe
OPTIONAL ADD INS:
1 teaspoon vanilla extract, banana extract, maple extract, etc.
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tbsp peanut butter or almond butter
1 tbsp chopped almonds or walnuts
1 tbsp flaxseed
Blend all ingredients together in a blender until it reaches pancake batter consistency. Feel free to add in optional ingredients for extra flavor...
Pour onto hot griddle or skillet, lower heat to ensure even cooking. Makes 4-8 pancakes, depending on size. Drizzle with honey and fruit for the optimal dining experience...
Egg White Omelette Extravaganza
4 egg whites plus one whole egg, beaten to a froth
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup mixed fresh vegetables, finely chopped (peppers, onions, mushrooms, spinach)
1/4 cup lowfat cheese (ie., feta, goat cheese, cheddar, monterey jack)
1/2 cup fresh spinach
1 ripe tomato
2 slices sprouted grain bread (ie Ezekiel bread)
Pour egg whites into a skillet, cook over low heat, moving the sides every so often to allow liquid to move to the side of the pan. In a separate skillet, heat olive oil and toss in fresh (preferably locally grown)vegetables and cook until tender.
Once egg whites have cooked through, add in cheese and vegetables. Fold over to create an omelette. Place on plate alongside sliced tomatoes and spinach. Drizzle salad with olive oil and pepper. Serve with 1-2 slices warmed sprouted grain bread. High protein, high fiber, high taste...equals high energy for fun activities!
