Before & after I lost 60 pounds icon smile Have Fun Getting Fit

I was overweight half my life & used to think that eating healthy was boring & miserable.

I was wrong.

After losing 60 lbs, I became obsessed with doing too much cardio & eating too little calories, while also calorie counting. Then I realized that eating healthy is AMAZE, super yummy, & it’ll change your life.

I started playing with food . . .and having a blast. I created new recipes – made them and the most fun part . . . taste testing!! Now, I have teamed up with my friend Sarah to bring you the most FUN cookbook!

We’ve been working on yummy & healthy recipes for the past couple of months. And it is ready!!

Chocolate Shakeology Protein Pancakes

Chocolate Shakeology Protein Pancakes Chocolate Shakeology Protein Pancakes

The past week I have been so inspired by some of the accounts I follow on Instagram to start experimenting in the kitchen. I was overwhelmed by the response on my pictures that people actually wanted the recipe to what I was making. I used to be terrified of cooking & never thought I could make something look so “pretty.” Since so many people have asked the recipes, I decided to do another post! icon smile Chocolate Shakeology Protein Pancakes

 Yesterday I made these delicious Chocolate Shakeology Protein Pancakes with Strawberry Sauce. They’re clean eating, delicious, & easy!  They’re very similar to my Clean Eating Banana Protein Pancakes from a few days ago. Here’s how I made them! icon smile Chocolate Shakeology Protein Pancakes

I blended the ingredients below & then poured them from my blender in to an oiled pan. Just how you would make any other pancake:

  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 scoop chocolate Shakeology

Then I made up a yummy strawberry sauce to top them with by blending:

  • 6 strawberries
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup 0% fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tbsp honey

So, there it is! My Chocolate Shakeology Protein Pancakes with Peanut Butter Cookie Dough sauce layered in between from today is very similar.

Chocolate Shakeology Protein Pancakes with Peanut Butter Chocolate Shakeology Protein Pancakes

These were the same exact recipe for the Chocolate Shakeology Protein Pancakes above.

The Peanut Butter Cookie Dough sauce I made by blending:

  • 1 can garbanzo beans
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup natural chunky peanut butter
  • 2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup stevia

I will be sharing my recipes from the past weekend later this week for my tasty spicy mustard marinade from grilling out skewers & also my Clean Eating Blueberry Compote Granola Parfait with Homemade Coconut Ice Cream.

Clean Eating Protein Pancakes

Banana Protein Pancakes Clean Eating Protein Pancakes

I never actually thought of posting recipes on my blog because I don’t think of myself as a talented chef in the kitchen icon smile Clean Eating Protein Pancakes But so many of you asked me for my recipe for these clean eating banana protein pancakes.

These may not look the best, but they were so yummy in my tummy yesterday! One of my friends I met on Instagram, Samantha, makes so many amazingly delicious recipes every day that I’ve joked with her saying that I’m going to hire her to be my personal chef. icon razz Clean Eating Protein Pancakes Please check out her amazing blog with all her yummy recipes.

I used to despise cooking & when I was working full-time I really didn’t do much of it. I used to always think that cooking took forever. But, now that I only work 20 hours a week from home (or wherever), I’ve been experimenting with cooking more. I’ve realized that eating clean doesn’t have to be boring. One of my new hobbies will now be cooking icon smile Clean Eating Protein Pancakes And making these clean eating banana protein pancakes makes me want to try many more versions! I was even able to use my new yummy vanilla Shakeology in the recipe!
