Normally I’d save a pancake recipe for a weekend post, but considering you can make these Banana Protein Pancakes with just 5 ingredients that are probably already in your kitchen and since they only take about 5 minutes to make, they seem totally appropriate for your weekday breakfasts! Here’s how to make them: B A N A N A🥞P R O T E I N🥞P A N C A K E S 1/2 banana, mashed 1 egg 1/2 tsp baking powder 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use @primalkitchenfoods vanilla collagen fuel) Sprinkle of cinnamon To serve: you can top with almond butter, berries, and/or dip into a small dish of maple syrup (always dip instead of pouring, you’ll use half as much!) . 1. Whisk egg in a bowl (or in a glass measuring cup for easy pouring of batter into the pan) 2. Add to the mashed banana, protein powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. (The batter will look a little weird and won’t be entirely smooth, don’t worry) 3. Spray a pan with coconut oil spray or heat some grass-fed butter over medium heat. 4. Pour batter into pan (it will make 3 pancakes) and flip when ready, about 3 minutes, or when you see the batter start to bubble. Cook for another couple minutes on the other side. 5. Top with your desired toppings. Enjoy - these will make your weekday morning feel like a special Saturday!
I’m headed to Vegas tomorrow for a 24-hour girls trip and considering it’s going to be 110 degrees there, we’re going to need some icy cold treats like these coconut peach popsicles! 🍑🥥 They’re really easy to make with just a couple ingredients, dairy-free (but super creamy from the coconut milk), and very lightly sweetened with either honey or maple syrup. Grab the recipe on the blog under desserts and stay nice and cool this weekend!
Got (cashew) milk? 🥛 If you’re all out of almond milk for your smoothie, don’t fear! As long as you have raw cashews and filtered water at home, you’re pretty much ready to make the yummiest, easiest homemade nut milk ever. I love using cashews because you don’t have to soak them OR strain the milk after blending! Here’s how to make it: 🥛 HOMEMADE CASHEW MILK 1 cup raw cashews 3-4 cups filtered water Sprinkle of cinnamon Splash of vanilla Pinch of salt Optional: 1 pitted date for sweetness Using a high-powered blender, blend everything together on high for about a minute. Pour into a glass jug and store in the fridge for up to 5 days. Btw, I have a nut milk story highlight saved so you can see the easy peasy process in action! 🥛 The best part of making this cashew milk at home is not only how delicious it is (seriously tastes like a milkshake!), but you don’t have to worry about any weird additives in your milk. So many store-bought brands are adding things like carrageenan (linked to digestive problems and inflammation - just say 🙅🏻♀️), “natural flavors”, thickeners, gums, soy, and even inflammatory vegetable oils... so unnecessary! Either stick with brands that use very simple ingredients (read those labels!) or take 2 min to make this delicious one at home!
If you asked me the number one message I get in my instagram DMs on a weekly basis, it would be a question about how to get into the nutrition world, what programs to look into, and how to structure your business. So I’ve got two fun things to share with you today that cover exactly that (and much more)! . 1️⃣ a full blog post about different programs, the pros & cons of each, and words of advice. I also asked a few of my nutritionist/RD friends to pipe in (thank you @thenutritionaddiction, @barefoodnutrition, and @balanced.to.a.t) and am sharing all the deets on their programs too! Head to the blog to check it out - link in bio! . 2️⃣ don’t miss the new @nutritionish_podcast that came out today! My friend Allie of @barefoodnutrition interviewed me about... you guessed it... all things nutrition from a career standpoint! Plus we discuss creating an authentic brand, taking beautiful photos, blogging, and knowing when to invest in your biz! It’s a good one - go check out episode 69 wherever you listen to your podcasts!
