I had only gotten 3 hours of sleep the night before b/c of coursework deadlines, so to say I was a royal bi-atch this morning would be a complete and total understatement. . . even the puppies were hiding!
I plugged through the first hour of work, but then had to take a quick power nap - I do NOT function on zero sleep - will never try that again!
After a 2 hour nap and a shower I felt like a new women - got up and got back to work.
Bummed that I missed CF this morning, but I can only do so much, and I have to recognize my limitations, and prioritize the completion of my degree over my CF addiction right now :(
After work, I decided to try to make some of those oatmeal pancakes that I've been buying from Molly's Friend, Mary. She makes these pancakes that are TO DIE FOR with oatmeal, egg whites, bananas, and sometimes some all-fruit perserves.
I experimented by combining the following:
- 1 small banana
- 1/2 cup Organic Unsweetened Applesauce
- Dash Vanilla Extract
- 8 Egg Whites
- 2 Whole Egs
- 1 Scoop Cinamon Roll BSN Lean Dessert Protein Powder
- 2 Cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats, Dry
- a Crap-Ton of ground cinamon
- 2 packets of Stevia
I then beat the egg whites and eggs till they were "thick"
Next, I mixed together the banana/apple mixture w/ the egg mixutre, and then stirred in my dry ingredients, which I had already combined.
I let this concoction sit for about 20 minutes so that the oats would absorb some of the moisture, and the "batter" would thiken up. Next I pre-heated a couple of skillets on super low heat, rubbed them w/ some olive oil, and proceded to make pancakes. The entire batch made 9 good-sized pancakes, and I figured out the following Macro Breakdown per Pancake:
- Calories: 139
- Fat: 3g
- Carbs: 20g
- Sugar: 5g
- Fiber: 3g
- Protein: 10g
Here are pics of my experiment! (I couldn't resist. . . .already ate 1 of them, hence ony 8 in the pics . . . ):
I'm getting ready to clean up the kitchen, and then hit the bed by 7:30 tonight to try to catch up on a little sleep.
CAN'T WAIT TO CROSSFIT TOMORROW!!!!! :) :) :) :)
