Pumpkin is taking over my diet…

… but I kind of like it! A protein pumpkin pancake is like having a big old cookie for breakfast, but it’s healthy!

I used:

  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • A couple shakes of cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice
  • A sprinkle of rolled oats
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin from the can

I flipped it perfectly this morning! I have never done that in my life. My pancakes usually look pretty haphazard by the time it’s done, but this one actually looked pretty!

I had a little leftover pumpkin so I mixed it with cinnamon and Stevia and popped it in the microwave for 30 seconds. I topped the pancake with this makeshift pumpkin spread and some cinnamon.

I even paused while eating to get a closer picture. Believe me, it took some serious willpower to delay the delicious bites that much longer.

I also whipped up some Almond Butter Banana Breakfast bars for the week…

I think I’m set for the week. 🙂 I divided them up into little “energy bites.” I always want a little something before my workouts, so this will be perfect.

Today I had a Get Fit Get Life team Skype chat. Lots of ideas for the future! The chat inspired me to take the site further. I wish there was more time in the day!

Perfect Sunday night song: I Go Back – Kenny Chesney That is, if you like country. 🙂

And to inspire some Sunday night thinking…

And it comes from saying no to 1,000 things to make sure we don’t get on the wrong track or try to do too much. We’re always thinking about new markets we could enter, but it’s only by saying no that you can concentrate on the things that are really important. -Steve Jobs
