While it seems like just yesterday that it was midterms (probably because it basically was) that time has come again. I only have 3 midterms this week, while this may be the most I have had in one week as an undergraduate student it will certainly be nothing compared to when I am in graduate school. I can look forward to having approximately 8 exams at any given time in the coming months.
Well at least for now I can take advantage of this time to breath a little!
Try it you will absolutely fall in love as I have!
However, due to a slight change in schedule for the week I have not been able to make my weekly grocery trip so I have been scavenging the cupboards.
Some of my favorites include chia pudding for breakfast and also protein pancakes.
For the chia pudding:
1 cup almond milk
3 Tbs. Chia seeds
2 dates (pitted)
Cinnamon to taste
**Blend til you reach a nice consistency and chill in refrigerator over night. Top with favorite fruit in my case I did black cherries and kiwi and it was heavenly!
Protein pancakes were inspired by toneitup.com
I used their recipe and tweaked it slightly.
3 egg whites
dash of cinnamon
scoop of favorite protein powder (I used doTERRA’s Vanilla Trim Shake)
1 Tbs. almond milk
1/4 cup of oats
1 banana mashed
Mash the banana and add the remaining ingredients. Spray a pan with nonstick spray and put on medium heat. Pour some of the batter on and wait for the bubbles to form before flipping.
I made a filling to add between the layers
2 dates (pitted)
1 Tbs. natural peanut butter
dash of almond milk to help blend
Add all ingredients to a jar and mash with fork or blend if you wish.
Spread between pancakes and enjoy!!
