I’m back!

Ok, so I took a break from blogging for a while. Kind of a holliday break let’s say. I was also having a rough time not finding a job and all…I just wasn’t feeling it anymore. I STILL haven’t found a job…but I have been invited after a first job interview to come and work for an hour at an audit company to show me what the job is like. I guess that’s a good sign! It’s this Wednesday morning. With a little luck I’ll be employed by the end of this month!(need to stop getting my hopes up). But enough whining for today ;). I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season! I kept it fairly healthy (except for all the wine, oeps). It’s understandable that my new year’s resolution this year was no alcohol for 1 month and less alcohol overall. My last year’s resolution was to quit smoking and now, one year later, I am still smoke free!

Now, let’s talk food! I have always been an oatmeal person but the last few weeks I wanted a change. Don’t get me wrong I still love oats, but I started loving pancakes in the morning! I need to lose some weight and maybe by changing my carb loaded breakfast into a proteine one is going to get me the results I need. Initially I thought I was going to miss my sweet little oats but I must admit I’m loving the pancakes!

Proteine Pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 banana
  • 1 scoop vanilla proteine powder
  • 1 Tbsp flax meal

Directions:

blend everything in a blender or by hand:

  • Mash the banana and wisk in egg whites.
  • Add the other ingredienst and mix well.
  • Turn your frying pan on medium-high (not too hot!)
  • Pour 1/2 the batter onto frying pan.
  • Cook each side until golden brown.

Top with fruit, almond or peanut butter. I topped mine with greek yogurt and blueberries.

After breakfast I watched the new epi of Californication and Girls. Girls on HBO is THE best tv show ever!  Lena Dunham is my new favorite actress! Before lunch I went for a 5 mile run. Everything was covered in snow and the scenery was breathtaking! For lunch I had a turkey sandwich and some almonds on the side. Dinner was a winner! I first wanted to eat what my mother had prepared, spaghetti bolognese. Sadly enough her sauce failed once again (I didn’t say anything though :p). After one bite I decided not to continue and make myself a dinner smoothie.
