Breakfast – Plain Oatmeal Pancake with Maple Syrup
Oatmeal pancakes are a quick, easy and nutritious breakfast. They are also high in protein, keeping you fuller, longer. Here is my oatmeal pancake recipe – I’ve changed it up a bit lately, and since I’m eating clean, I’m skipping the chocolate chips and topping it with fresh fruit instead – although today I used 1 tbsp of pure maple syrup.
1/2 cup quick cook oats
1/2 cup egg whites
1 tbsp agave nectar
1 tsp cinnamon
Mix it all together, and cook it up like a regular pancake.
Morning Snack – 2 Eat Clean Caramel Coconut Chewy Bars As I popped in at home to change after team teaching BodyAttack and before heading back to the gym for my Skinny Jeans Workout, I needed something sweet. I grabbed them out of the freezer and ate them immediately…they were so good!
Lunch – Open Faced (not because I wanted to, but because we only had one slice of bread!) Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich
Dinner – Pork Tenderloin, Corn on the Cob and Asparagus. Asparagus has to be one of my favourite veggies, especially when grilled on the BBQ. I like to mist it with olive oil, add some salt and pepper and let it sit for about 15 minutes before grilling. Yummo!
Evening Snack – Eat Clean Lucky Ginger Spice Cookies – seeing as I ate the last of the Chia Seed Peanut Butter Cookies, I needed a new treat. These cookies were very easy to make and are delicious! recipe comes from
