Hi Everyone! Happy Tuesday!
Wow, have I been a lazy one today. I didn’t even make it to the gym this a.m. so this means I will have to tack on another 20 minute cardio session to my workout tomorrow. Normally I wouldn’t worry about it, but today has been a day full of carbs. ;)
I had my morning bowl of fruit sprinkled with Alfalfa Powder and Flax Seeds.
Then I was craving “substance” like pancakes! It just so happened I just finished reading the blog post on the Perfect Protein Pancakes on Fitnessista.com, so I took the recipe and made them sans eggs.
You can find the recipe here - all I did was used a flax egg in replacement of the egg along with 1/2 banana mashed. And a tad more almond milk.
My pancakes turned out green! I used my vanilla chai flavour Vega protein powder which has a light green hue to it…..
It did look like a Dr. Seuss breakfast, but they were very tasty and hearty Ryan had some after he worked out and loved them! There a keeper.
After my carb feast I had some Energizing Lemonade! This juice really gets your blood flowing, I just love it!
Later in the day I had my usual salad (surprise, surprise…) and then decided to make some of Averie’s No-Bake Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls!
You can find the original recipe here! I used my Vanilla Chai Vega Protein powder (Yes, these balls were green too!) instead of Coconut Flour and used Almond Butter instead of Peanut Butter! YUMMM these are totally curing my cravings today!
Tasty small snacks like this are great to have in the fridge for days like today.
Well I should really get myself off of my couch and clean this place! I may actually feel like tackling that treadmill after? The best way to get out of a lazy day is to do something! Take some deep breaths and go through your mental list of what you are grateful for today!

What is your favourite “comfort” food when you are needing to feel comfy?? What do you love eating on your lazy days?
