Crêpes

pesd

I have always been curious about crêpes. Never knew what they were like… We have never been the family that goes out to breakfast so a crêpe was so foreign to me! 
 
Crêpes are a French pancake usually filled with cream, fruit, chocolate, etc. 
 
<—- These are filled with yogurt and fruit drizzled with Justin’s vanilla almond butter.
The recipe for them are pretty simple actually! All you need is the ingredients below and a little patience:
  • 1/3 cup flour of choice (oat, whole wheat, or white)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 6 T egg whites
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 T unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • sweetener if desired

 Pour thin layer over small sprayed pan. Cover and let cool about a minute. If it doesn’t look cooked all the way on top, flip. I rolled these up with Red Velvet Elli quark and topped with banana, chocolate protein glaze and chocolate chips!

**If you want chocolate flavored crêpes, just add 1 T cocoa powder**
 
These take as much time to make as pancakes and will definitely be worth the effort👍

Cake Batter Ice Cream Review

 

 Cake and ice cream. That combo takes me back to when I was a little girl and had that for my birthday parties. Two decadent treats that fit together like a puzzle. It is complete❤️

When I saw this flavor, a part of me knew there was no way I was never going to try it. I’m not the biggest fan of chocolate ice cream so I tend to like a mix of flavors. This suited me just right.👌 

 “Cake Batter ice cream with a chocolate frosting swirl”🌀 

Ben and Jerry’s is so creamy and flavorful. The cakey flavor was so perfect and the swirl….. Oh, don’t get me started! AHH-MAZING! It literally was chocolately frosting😍   The only thing that turned me off with this one is that it’s “chunk less”😢 That NEEDS TO CHANGE! People need chunks in their ice cream! It would improve this flavor GREATLY!

 On a scale of 1-10, I would give this flavor a 7. Definitely worth trying if you crave cake👍

Creamy Chicken Vegetable Pasta

 Sometimes, all you have to do is go in the kitchen, and start experimenting to come up with some pretty delicious creations…. Which is exactly what I did with this pasta.

This recipe only serves one so if you want to make for two, just double it☺️

What I used:
🍅About 1-1.5 cups brown rice pasta
🍅Shredded chicken breast
🍅Cherry tomatoes
🍅Asparagus
🍅Fresh spinach
🍅Olive oil
🍅Minced garlic 
🍅Nutritional yeast
🍅Greek yogurt
🍅Parmesan cheese

First, boil your pasta and set aside.
Then, chop up your vegetables and sauté with olive oil and minced garlic. I also tossed the shredded chicken with Mrs. Dash seasonings and garlic powder for more flavor! 

To make the “creamy sauce”, mix 2-3 tsp nutritional yeast with about 2-3 Tbsp greek yogurt and set aside.

In a bowl, combine all your prepared components together and cover with parmesan cheese! 👌

I really was surprised how yummy as cheesy the sauce turned out and will definitely be making it again! I would love to hear if you try it!

Combat Crunch Bars

IMG_7583

New protein bars make me happy! ☺️Especially when they taste like straight up chocolate bars from the wrapper! What else could you ask for? 😄

Combat Crunch bars by MusclePharm do NOT DISAPPOINT! PURE DELICIOUSNESS 😍

First of all, they have 20g protein, 12 g fiber, and are gluten free! This flavor is the chocolate chip cookie dough (also bought chocolate peanut butter cup and cinnamon twist to try soon)

Let’s get down to the point:
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough🍪
You take a bite into its crunchy, chocolatey shell into its taffy-soft, cookie center that melts in your mouth. The “crunch” is from the embedded cookie pieces in the shell.
 
I didn’t leave anything behind. It was a definite 10/10 and I look forward to trying all the other flavors.

Cinnamon Twist❤️

After trying the chocolate chip cookie dough flavor, cinnamon roll was next on my list. ✔️

 I am the biggest fan of cinnamon out there. I don’t think there are days I go without some, it’s perfection👌

MusclePharm is an outstanding protein brand! I have yet to try the protein powder but these bars have convinced me to get on that ASAP!
 
I’ll walk you through this…
When you first open the package, you get a slap in the face of cinnamon✋💥
 
It’s outer shell is a crunchy white chocolate cinnamon with a soft, taffy-like core of cinnamon heaven. Too good to be true? Quite possibly. But it’s true and you better go get your hands on these bad boys! 👍
 
I found mine at a GNC store but can also be purchased off bodybuilding.com or their website!

powerThe White Chocolate Raspberry was just as amazing as the rest ❤

Blueberry Lemon Pancakes

 These pancakes are adapted from my “Patriotic Pancakes” that you can find under pancakes☺️ 

Ingredients:
💜1 scoop vanilla protein powder
💜1/3 cup Kodiak Powercakes mix
💜2 T oats
💜Dash of cinnamon 
Mix dry ingredients then add:
💜1/3 cup egg whites
💜1/3 cup milk of choice
💜1-2 T greek yogurt
Mix all together until there are no clumps or dry pieces. Prepare on a well sprayed griddle and WALLA! I prefer these pancakes cooled so it’s more cakey.
 
Elli quark is amazing!!! It’s a German Style sweet cream with just as much or more protein as greek yogurt. It’s naturally sweetened with stevia and erythritol. I find mine at Whole Foods and they have many flavors to choose from😊 
 
Great topper for my pancakes with blueberries and coconut💜
