A lot of people think that eating to support their fitness goals has to be boring.
Nothing could be further from the truth!
The key is finding a few good recipes that:
– Support your fitness goals
– Taste good
– Are easy to prep
This “Anabolic Pancakes” recipe is a great example. I make these for our whole family at least two or three times per week, and everyone loves it.
It’s high in protein, has high-quality carbs with the oats, and is also low in fat.
Check it out:
2 cups oats, dry
1/2 cup nonfat milk OR almond milk
6oz nonfat greek yogurt
1 whole egg
2 egg whites
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
mix in a blender
pour ~ 1/4 cup “batter” for each pancake
coat pan with non-stick spray
cook on medium heat for 1 or 2 minutes per side
Nutrition breakdown (1 serving = 4 pancakes made with 1/4 cup “batter”):

BIG BOY STYLE (this is how I eat them… be aware that it DOES add calories… GOOD if you’re trying to add muscle / maintain mass… perhaps NOT as good if you’re going for fat loss)
cook up 1 egg + 2 egg whites
put it on top of the pancakes
add 1/2 banana
add 1/2 tsp honey
Nutrition breakdown (4 pancakes + eggs + banana + honey):
62 g carbs
36 g protein
19 g fat
Remember, eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring!
