As a Fitfluential Ambassador, I was sent a sample of ProCakes pancake mix directly from the company at no charge to me to review on my blog. All opinions are my own.
Hello! How is everyone doing?
Let’s do a quick weekend recap, shall we?
On Saturday night, we had plans to cookout with my family. We bought everything – burgers, chicken, salmon, fruit, (grilled pineapple is amazing), and my dad brought ingredients to make campfire pies over the fire…then Mother Nature decided to drop a huge storm on us. It poured like crazy and our backyard was so flooded, we could have swam in it.
Needless to say, we didn’t grill and ordered pizza instead. Boo.
We did grill the food on Sunday so we still got to enjoy it. Danny usually grills a few chicken breasts on Sunday night and we throw them in the fridge to use on salads for dinner throughout the week. It cuts down a lot on cooking time during the week.
Sunday morning, I taught BodyPump. Killed my leg, but I only have two BodyPump classes to go.
Yesterday night, Danny and I worked out biceps and triceps together. We did the following:
- biceps curls
- triceps cable pulldowns
- single leg hammer curls
- reverse biceps curls
- abs – plank and sit-ups
We did 3 sets and 12 reps of each exercise.
This morning, I had something new for breakfast – ProCake Protein Pancakes!!
I love me some protein pancakes and I was excited to try out this mix from ProCakes.
ProCakes are gluten-free, have only 14 net carbs per serving, and have no added sugar. The directions are simple – you mix one egg, milk, and the ProCakes package in a bowl and that’s it!
I used one whole egg, 1/4 cup of almond milk, and a handful of blueberries for my ProCakes.
My ProCakes had 261 calories and 20 grams of protein! I ate them with a little bit of Walden Farms calorie-free syrup.
I love that they came out brown, fluffy, and delicious! The mix made three good sized pancakes and I ate them with two egg whites for a little extra protein. They were very filling and I had a hard time finishing all three pancakes. They turned out a lot tastier that my normal protein pancakes made with eggs and oatmeal.
I definitely see more ProCakes in my future
A big happy birthday, to my mom today!! We’re going to celebrate with her this weekend!
Love you, Mom!
Have a great day!
