Good afternoon friends! So, I am here to talk about a couple things including protein bars, protein pancakes, and Tone It Up.
First of all, my Snack before I left my house this morning. I grabbed one of my homemade protein bars on my way out. Click here for the recipe 🙂
Next, PANCAKES! I am here to share with you the Tone It Up recipe for pancakes. Karena & Katrina share this one on their blog.
The ingredients are:
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (organic brown rice protein or whey)- visit your local nutrition store or wholefoods!
- 2 tbs vanilla almond milk or skim
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbs ground flaxseed
- After above ingredients are mixed together add 1/2 banana (mashed)- mash first, then add!!
- Add a handful of fresh or frozen blueberries
One the pancake starts to bubble (just like any other pancake) flip it very carefully!
Let it cook on its belly for a little while, and check it with a fork to make sure the middle is done 🙂
They say to top it with strawberries, and if you’d like, stevia.
I don’t have any strawberries at the moment, so I just substituted the other half of my banana 🙂
Lastly, I am here to tell you all that I joined the Tone It Up team today! After tons of research, I decided that it would be well worth it to buy their Nutrition Plan. Yes, it’s a little bit pricey, but when I compared it to the price of a one time session with a personal trainer, it didn’t seem too bad. Plus, for the $149.99, you get a lifetime membership, with ALL the updates/new recipes FOREVER.
I have read through about half the packet that you get immediately, and I have already learned so much! I am going to start the 7 Day Slim Down tomorrow, just to cleanse my body and get me motivated! I am super excited about it; I always love trying something new!
This nutrition plan is all about being happy, healthy, and FIT! It’s all about getting toned, and eating the right foods at the right time of day, in the proper combinations for weight-loss. I am so excited to start on this lifetime journey with the TIU family, and I would LOVE to know if any of you do Tone It Up too!
