Rain or shine, Sunday’s are always the perfect day for pancakes. To continue my welcome to summer, I decided to make some berry-filled pancakes. Peanut butter and berries pancakes to be exact.
You can’t really see it too well, but these pancakes are filled with juicy raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries.
PB & Berry-licious Pancakes
1/2 cup kodiak cake mix
1/2 cup water
2 heaping T organic low-fat cottage cheese
1 T ground flax
~ 1/3 cup mixed berries (halved raspberries and blueberries, sliced strawbs)
Mix away! Pour into skillet at medium and cook about 5 mins on each side or until browned.
The berries sweeten up the pancakes and keep them moist and doughy, just the way I like it. It’s still super dreary outside, but these pancakes really brighten up any morning.
Well, I’m off to bake up a batch of vegan samoas (perhaps with brown rice syrup instead of brown sugar this time) and then its off to Dicks Last Resort for my sisters birthday tonight. Have a nice and relaxing Sunday!!
Thats what it was today. I went out for a run this afternoon and I was REALLY feelin it. Dinner and drinks last night definitely played a large role in my excruciating run this afternoon. My plan was to run 5 miles, but I only made it 2.3 miles before I stopped. I probably could’ve made it a little further (but not much) however I kept thinking about how hot it was and how tired I was getting and how dehydrated I was. I ended up talking myself into just running .5 miles and walking .25 until I reached 3 miles and then it was down to just running .25 miles and walking .25 miles until I reached 4 miles. Than I just walked for 2 miles. My mind was not thinking very positively today. I’ve realized that what I eat really affects my physical ability the next day and last night’s 3+ glasses of vino and sangria didn’t help at all.
The effects of overeating and alcohol = No bueno.
You know what IS bueno though?? This!
Yepp! The return of breakfast :) I was a very happy girl this morning and enjoyed every last bite of this oats/oatbran, cottage cheese, peaches and blueberries combo.
These past couple days/nights have been busy busy and I haven’t exactly had that much time to make anything spectacular, but I have been enjoying this quick and yummy combo.
A pineapple ring filled with cottage cheese. It’s nothing life-changing, but it’s an easy to make snack and combination of two of my favorites.
Okay, it’s officially WAY past my bed time. I’m going to drink a HUGE glass of water to re-hydrate my very dehydrated body and then I’m off to bed. Night oaties!
