Good Clean Eats

I didn’t get any mileage in Tuesday and I wanted to take advantage of the nice weather so I set my alarm 20 minutes early and walked 1.4 miles before work. It really is a wonderful way to start my day!

I made a Pineapple Protein Pancake for breakfast that turned out beautifully!

Pineapple Protein Pancake
(Modified from TIU Protein Pancake)

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 scoop protein powder (Vanilla Progenex works great!)
  • 2 tbs vanilla almond milk or skim
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbs ground flaxseed
    After above ingredients are mixed together add 2 Tbs crushed pineapple
    Mix together and cook over low-medium heat. Cook 5 minutes per side.
    Top w/ 2 Tbs crushed pineapple and 1 Tbs almond butter.

I reheated Venison Stir-Fry leftovers that had a handful of almonds on top for good measure. I also ate my apple with lunch hoping it would help fill me since I’m changing my routine to avoid a morning snack.  An afternoon Larabar held me over until it was time for a run.

I managed to ignore my 6pm hunger and make it out for a 3 mile run with a .25 mile walk back to the house.  We had planned breakfast for dinner so I baked sweet potato cubes, heated some venison sausage, and cooked up an egg over-medium.  It was a nice change since I seem to always do scrambled these days!  I was hoping to use the runny egg juice, but when I flipped it a second time the yolk broke so it ended up on the bottom of the bowl instead of the top.  About 30 seconds after I snapped the picture I topped my bowl with ketchup.   I enjoyed some crunchy green grapes after dinner.  The fruit is helping to cure my desire for an after-dinner snack, while still keeping it fairly healthy.

To end on a positive note:  think my entire day was Paleo 🙂
