A few of clients have been discussing lately with me about boredom with their current eating. Unfortunately eating well can become boring/repetitive or drinking just protein shakes can be boring or not fill you up and craving can occur for sweets or fatty foods. I came across and idea for No Carb Protein Pancakes. The source for this was October 2010 muscle and fitness magazine and was from the monthly Q and A with Rosa-Maria Romero (picture below source http://tbcgym.com/rosa-maria-romero/).
Muscle and fitness is a fantastic magazine and I recommend that all clients should read this magazine for more tips and there is even a female version in most newsagents from the states which is fantastic as well. Rosa-Maria Romero is an IFBB professional figure competitor, and the top ranked Australian in that division. Her Q and A in muscle and fitness is always great for information so next time you are in a newsagent have a look but here is her No Carb protein pancakes:
-2 egg whites
– 1 scoop protein powder
– 1 tsp baking powder
– Cinnamon and stevia to taste
– 1 tsp flaxseeds
– Water (approx 2 tbsp)
Stir all the ingredients together or blend and either bake or pour into a pan sprayed with non-stick spray. Cook until golden brown, flip over and do the same on the other side until the pancake is cooked through.
So very simple and great tasting as well! Add honey or peanut butter if you want but this is a great idea to cook the night before and have the next day! For more ideas go to bodybuilding.com as well as they have some great low carb/fat cooking ideas but plan your meals for each day and try different things to keep your diet interesting!
