Paleo Coconut Pancakes

I was in the mood for pancakes this morning and I haven’t had them since before starting Whole30.  Although, I didn’t want to eat wheat since I have noticed I am pretty sensitive to any type of gluten.  I went searching for some recipes on the good ole faithful Pinterest and found an awesome blogger Nicole.  She writes a blog called Gluten Free on a Shoestring.

The recipe was perfect.  It had coconut in it, no dairy, gluten or sugar and quite frankly I didn’t even eat it with syrup.  Landon even scarfed up a few pancakes too.  So I can easily say this is husband and kid tested and approved.

We are really trying to limit Landon’s gluten and refined sugar so this was right in line with that.

Breakfast Smoothie

Want a quick breakfast that provides tons of nutrients, energy, protein and actually tastes good?  This smoothie is for you!  I have really taken smoothies under my wing in a pinch. When I need something that is chocked full of nutrients but doesn’t require me to cook a full meal then this is my go to!  Smoothies are filling and really tasty!  You would be surprised that this combination is very sweet!!!

Beast Breakfast Coconut Quinoa

This recipe is from the Beast Program.  Beast Breakfast Coconut Quinoa is a great recipe because quinoa is a grain like seed that is high in protein and balanced in essential amino acids.  When cooked, it’s light and fluffy with a mild, slightly nutty flavor.  This is a great alternative to oatmeal.

This recipe is from the Beast Program. You’ll need to cut your serving size in half unless following the Beast Program.

Cinnamon Quinoa Bake

A lot of people have never heard of quinoa or are deathly afraid of it!  But don’t be, it is absolutely delicious.  I explain it as similar to rice in the sense that you cook it the same way.  But it has a chewier consistency and is actually a complete protein.  So it is packed with your healthy carbs and your sustaining protein all in one food!  BONUS for those of us who are clean eaters, vegetarians or need to increase protein!  Plus it gives you that carb consistency without the after affects!

This recipe was given to me by a friend and when I made it I fell in love!  Add in some fruit and it’s even more delicious!  Check it out!!!

Mancakes

Yes I said it right, MANCAKES not pancakes!  I first learned about mancakes from my coach Deidra and then I watched Maegan post about them all the time and how awesome they are.  I decided that I just had to give it a try.  ACTUALLY, my husband decided he was going to make them!!

I am hooked and there are so many different ways you can make them!  Today I’m sharing one of our favorites. If you are looking for a way to eat pancakes but keep it clean and not overkill it on the carbs this works great.

You can make them ahead of time, let them cool and then store them for later or you can eat them immediately.  Either way they are delicious.

If you try it definitely let me know what you think!!!!

Quinoa Power Cereal

As I flipped through the Les Mills Pump nutrition guide looking for some new recipes to try I came across this tasty Quinoa Power Cereal as breakfast option.  If you don’t know anything about quinoa I will give you the scoop.  It is a type of grain, but it is very high in protein.  Cooked similar to rice, it has more of a chewier texture.  Quinoa has a slight nutty flavor and totally satisfies my need for something crunchy like cereal.  Such a great way to make sure that you are getting in enough protein during the day and giving yourself complete meals!   Stay full longer and are left satisfied instead of hungry!  Give it a try!!!

Mason Jar Overnight Oatmeal

I have this obsession and it begins with an “O” and ends with an “L” CAN YOU SAY…..OATMEAL!!!!

I have found this most amazing recipe for Mason Jar overnight oatmeal that I have to share!  I made this with my boys and they are all stacked in the fridge and ready for the week.  We made these in less than 30 minutes (it took a little longer bc I had little hands helping me).  This little jars are perfect to throw in your lunch bag, eat for a snack or share with your kids!  Super easy and full of flavor!!!
The great part is that you eat them cold so you don’t even have to warm them up.

 

Oatmeal Protein Pancakes with Raspberries

I am a huge Instagram fan and I seriously love following Clean Eating moms that post yummy recipes.  I have been seeing lots of body builders and fitness competitors post about protein pancakes.  I mean seriously they look amazing, like so amazing that there is no way you could eat those while doing contest prep.  So I decided to give this one particular recipe a try.

So the ingredients were simple, it was easy to make but my pancakes look NOTHING like the girl who posted them.  I mean honestly, she had to of made at least 10 batches before she got it right.  I even messaged her on Instagram to get her secret for perfect looking pancakes!!!

But despite the look of them, the taste is out of this world.  I mean ridiculously good!!!  I add a little honey to the cream topping because I wanted more sweetness.  But the almond extract was just what it needed!!  You have to try this recipe!! It will CHANGE your LIFE!!!

So many people ask me, “What is a quick to go meal to stave off my hunger and possible binge eating?”  I love berry smoothies! So, why not make a Quick Protein-packed Berry Smoothie!  So, using a good quality protein powder (I use protein powder from Healthy Performance)  and a few ingredients you can create a powerful nutrient rich and protein packed smoothie to keep you satisfied and healthy.
