My 30 (or more!) days challenges

Breakfast – Day 49

Another thing that all healthy eating and fitness bloggers post all the time is protein pancakes. I’ve been quite reluctant to make them myself, as even though I really like all kinds of pancakes, I thought it would be a bit of a hassle.

But somehow finally I got convinced that I should try those out! Especially that the recipes didn’t seem extremely complicated. To make this stack of pancakes, I just blend 1/3 cup ground oats, 2 tablespoons almond milk, 1/4 cup plain yoghurt, 2 tablespoons coconut flour, 1 scoop whey protein with vanilla flavour, 1 egg, half small banana, one teaspoon vanilla extract and half teaspoon cinnamon and cooked the pancakes over medium-high heat, about 2 minutes on each side. I was really worried that the pancakes would get an ugly shape, but it turns out that pouring the batter from a cup, holding it low above the pan, really helps to make them nice and round!

I’m having the pancakes with peanut butter and banana, and also some orange chunks and a cup of americano.

Smoothie – Day 24 – Sunny Yellow

ruflag

The weather in London has been pretty dull and gloomy the whole week and, longing for some sunshine, I decided to make a smoothie that would look all summery and sunny. Here’s what goes in my blender:

  • Half cup almond milk
  • One tablespoon plain yoghurt
  • Half cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • Half cup mango chunks
  • One small orange
  • A thumb of fresh peeled ginger
  • One teaspoon turmeric

Breakfast – Day 15

ruflag

Today I somehow woke up 20 minutes earlier than usual, which means I have time to make myself a proper breakfast in Mediterranean style.

That includes two hard-boiled eggs, sliced red bell pepper, tomatoes and a baby cucumber (the first time I managed to find decent cucumber in London!), a selection of olives and two slices of saucisson with herbes, feta cheese and halloumi cheese each (I found out that these two cheeses are among the healthiest ones only after I bought them!). And also some toasts, orange slices and a cup of tea to complete the picture.
