Frugal Healthy Recipe: Perfect Protein Pancakes

I have recently discovered the perfect protein pancake. I came across the recipe from Oxygen Magazine but of course had to make it my own by adding or nixing a few things here and there.

And just in case you weren't aware of this before, discovering the perfect protein pancake is the best way to start your week. I have a feeling good things will come this week all because of my pancakes. I believe in the pancake power.

Better Breakfast

To make the perfect protein pancake you need to have an open mind. And you can't be picky. Because I know a lot of people who would turn their nose at the idea of putting cottage cheese into their pancakes. Cottage Cheese? Yep. I went there. And it was amazing.

I mixed 1 cup of oatmeal, 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 4 egg whites, 1tsp cinnamon, 1tsp vanilla, 1tsp baking powder, 1tsp peanut butter (PB2) and blended everything using my blender. Once you have a smooth batter, it's time to start cooking! And then you devour....that's the best part. I promise you don't even taste the cottage cheese AT ALL as long as you make sure everything blends together smoothly.

Simply amazing. I almost want to make these every morning for the rest of my life. Almost.

And since today's lunch and dinner were repeats from last week I thought I'd share the recipe for my Morrocan Lentil Stew. What can I say? I am in the giving mood.

What you need for this recipe:

1cup Red Lentils
1cup Veggie Broth
1finely chopped onion
1finely chopped carrot
1cup finely chopped celery
3tsp tomato paste
2tsp cumin
2tsp cinnamon
2tsp cayenne pepper
2tsp garam masala
1tsp cardamom
1tsp course ground pepper
1tsp sea salt
Minced Garlic (to your liking. I used a lot)

I sautéed the onion, celery, carrots, and garlic in olive oil until tender. Next I poured in the tomato paste and made sure it covered the veggies. Then I added in the lentils and let them simmer in the broth and spices until cooked. Finally, I blended everything together until it was kind of smooth since I wanted there to be some texture. Garnished with a dollop of Greek yogurt and cilantro and it was quite the amazing, filling soup for a cold day. And it was easy and quick. You can never go wrong with that.
