pancakes + homemade greek fro-yo + REST

oooh the time really got the best of me today.  i said i would rest the entire Saturday after teaching 6 classes this week, all of which included weights.   when i first started teaching, i wanted to teach the ALL OF HOUSTON, and i did. i think i was up to like 9 or 10 classes a week plus my  full time job.  oh and doing boot camps on the side for high school girls twice a week.  i actually kept up with it for longer than you might have expected, but then the health issues started kicking in (duh) as well as complete burn out from working out altogether!  you know the saying..too much of something isn’t good, i know, i know.  that was obviously all pre-Chiso… speaking of Chiso, i really did keep my word to rest today so we walked over to the park for some play time.

pumpkin pie pancakes

the stuff:

  • 1/4 cup oat bran
  • 3/4 cup wheat bran
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (ya might need more)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 heaping tbsp 0% plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup pure pumpkin
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp all spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 5-7 drops of vanilla creme stevia
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 packet granulated stevia
  • 2 egg whites

do this:

mix!  in a medium heated pan sprayed with no-stick cooking spray, pan fry them up like cakes.  once one side starts to bubble, flip it.   couldn’t be any easier, right?  OH, the topping is 1 tbsp greek yogurt, 1 tbsp pure pumpkin, and 1 tbsp walden farms pancake syrup.  whip it up and make a pretty dollop on top of your stack.

for the whole shabang:

now, i MUST post this before i let ya go- a reader of mine and her husband are NOT fond of chocolate, so i vow to post more clean, healthy desserts of all varieties more often! there will be plen-tay in my e-book as well.  this dessert was an Instagram inspiration gone RIGHT.

blueberry greek fro-yo

the stuff:

1 packet granulated stevia

1 single size tub 0%-2% plain greek yogurt

couple drops of vanilla creme stevia (3-5-7)

1/4 cup blueberries (any kind!)

do this:

mix; you can throw this all in a blender for a smooth texture, or you can do it by hand.  since i like the fruit chunks i did it by hand as you can see.  put it in the freezer for about 30 min…you gotta watch it though cause i left mine in there too long and i had to wait until it defrosted some before i could inhale it. the longest 17 minutes, ever.  oh and i added pistachios, but it’s your call on the nuts.

what day of the week is your rest day on and why?

have a beautiful evening!!!!
