Oh! How I Missed Thee . .

Protein Pancakes! Cottage Cheese! Oh how I missed thee!

I have just been stuck in this rut of competition dieting for the past 3 years and I have never put cottage cheese back into my diet! I have been scared of dairy.

. . . but I have to admit I was a cottage cheese addict. Hi, my name is Sylvia and I am a recovering cottage cheese aholic. I would eat cottage cheese for breakfast in my pancakes, for my mid morning snack with apples and oats , I would blend it up with seasonings and make a dip for my veggies, a dip that I could eat an entire CUP of! YUM! . . . I ate cottage cheese with everything! I think there is such a thing as too much of a good thing.

I loved how my physique made changes after eliminating dairy from my diet. I had been stuck with no progress for so long then, bam! My butt and thighs finally went down a bit. So I developed an addiction, or obsession with the skinny lean feeling and became scared of dairy.

But I am adding it back into my diet with moderation.

Today I made my FAVORITE protein pancakes!

( . . . yeah I am not able to do the keto diet, it makes my tummy feel too gross.)

....so anyway my pancakes . . so fluffy, and yummy, and big and satisfying ! I don't even want regular pancakes when I can have these!

Protein Pancakes
makes 2 servings

Put in a blender in this order:

4 egg whites
1/2 C. Cottage Cheese
1/2 C. oats
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp baking powder

Blend well. Pour half the batter in a lightly oiled, large non-stick pan. Cook well on each side, these are thick and fluffy they take a while to cook thru, so don't be in a hurry to flip it.

Today I sprinkled fresh picked saskatoon berries on the raw pancake in the pan to ensure even distribution of my berries. I like to top them with frozen blueberries, I microwave them till they are hot and juicy and I add 1 pkt of splenda and pour it over my pancake.

As you can see they are HUGE that is not a cute little saucer that is a full size DINNER PLATE! I suppose I coulda made several cute little pancakes and made an adorable little stack, but . . . . nnaaaa! . . . this is easier. Who has time for bein' all "Martha Stewart" when I am gonna wolf it down in 2 minutes anyway LOL! Besides I think an entire plate covered in one big pancake IS a wonderful thing . . . . don't you?!
