I didn’t manage to do my High Intensity Interval Training workout today. My excuse is that getting up at 6am to read my bible, cook a protein high breakfast as suggested, get ready for work and prep lunch is enough of a task. 5.45am to work out is just too much on top of that, particularly when I’m chasing people around all day like a sheepdog. Then again, chasing after people probably has the same effect on my body. Anyway, on with the today’s menu…
|Mix all the ingredients into a bowl or jug to form a drop scone like batter.|
|Fry for a few minutes on one side.|
|Flip over and fry on the other side until done. Voila, you have tasty protein pancakes. Top with what you like.|
I didn’t top my pancakes with anything but tomorrow I’m considering bacon and possibly mushrooms. I’m sure they’ll be fine with vanilla…
Lunch today was largely the same. Houmous on rice cakes, beef and chicken salad and cayenne oil to dress it. So nothing too exciting or ground shaking.
This was where I fell down today. You see, I was attending a presentation after hours at work but had no time to pick up extra food/forgot to do that. So instead of buying expensive, high in everything bad, sandwiches from the cafe, I picked up a love life soup from Waitrose. While still processed and microwaved, I felt it was a better option that the sandwiches as it contained under 10% sugar. It was Italian bean soup with plenty of veg in it too, so high in everything I’ve been told to eat. Whether that makes it better I don’t know, but it removed a bit of my guilt. What I can tell you was it tasted gooooood but I shall not be having it again anytime soon. Alongside it I had my remaining houmous, veggie sticks and soya yogurt for pudding.
And then I had 3 halves of sausage rolls at the presentation. I avoided the cakes and biscuits (YES!!!) but fell foul of the savouries as I gave in to my cravings. Let’s hope I can do better tomorrow when I’m travelling. Note to self; must not step in to Burger King or MacDonalds.
