occasionally i slip back into some not-so-great eating habits, but when i am in the habit of eating healthy, i start to look forward to treats that are good for me. namely, fruit

the promise of a banana and WHOLE TABLESPOON of peanut butter after a workout is half of the reason i go to the gym in the first place


waking up in the morning knowing i get to have fruit with cottage cheese gets me out of bed so fast

these types of treats are good for you, tasty, and won’t leave you craving more sugar - 100% satisfaction

Blueberry Oatmeal Protein Pancakes

workin’ it for the camera 


i adapted the recipe from my favorite food blog The Healthy Foodie 



  • ½ cup Rolled Oats
  • ½ cup 1% Cottage Cheese
  • ½ cup Egg Whites
  • ¼ tsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ tsp Cinnamon
  • *i added ¼ tsp pumpkin pie spice 
  • ¼ cup frozen (or fresh) blueberries
  1. For the pancakes: Simply mix all the ingredients, except raspberries, in a food processor (i’ve also used a VitaMix. and a Magic Bullet works) and blend until nice and smooth. Remove the blades and delicately fold in the blueberries.

2. Coat a non-stick pan with cooking spray and heat it over medium heat. When the pan is hot enought, cook your pancakes one at a time until set and golden, about 1-2  minutes per side. I like to divide my batter into 3 small pancakes, but you may choose to make one large, 2 medium or 3 small pancakes, whatever works for you.

helllooo perfect pancake

3. I ate all three and topped with the blueberry sauce and whipped cream. These pancakes are to die for
