When I saw these gorgeous sunflowers at the Farmer’s market last night, I knew I had to get them. $5 for a bouquet of sunflowers? That’s definitely a steal! Sunflowers are my fav and I thought it’d brighten my home :D.
Other finds from the Farmer’s market:
KETTLE CORN!!! Zucchini ($1.00/lb), OKRAS!!!, and a huge package of ground flaxseeds for $4 only! I was very very pleased :mrgreen:.
I had a killer breakfast after my run this morning…pancakes! It’s a new recipe that I jotted down before I went to bed last night.
Amazing Banana Surprise Oatmeal Pancakes
- 1/3 cups oats
- one egg white (3 Tbs)
- one scoop chocolate protein powder (15 g)
- one scoop Amazing Grass Chocolate Infusion
- 2-3 Tbs almond milk (or any other milk you like)
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- a pinch of salt
- sliced bananas
Mix everything except the bananas in a bowl, and let sit for a couple of minutes. Spray a pan with cooking spray, and heat it up on medium-high heat. Once the oil is heated, turn heat down the medium. Scoop out about 2 Tbs of mixture for each pancakes (I made 3 small ones). Place one sliced banana in the middle of each pancake. Let it cook for about two minutes before flipping the pancakes over. Cook for another 2 min.
Arrange pancakes on a plate. Serve with your favorite toppings and devour!
I topped mine with watered down PB2 so that it has a runny consistency.
The amazing pancakes were accompanied by some sweet peaches and yogurt.
Banana surprise! (I had lousy picture-taking skills this morning)
Because of the Amazing Grass I did see some green specks in my pancakes. Some greens in the early morning don’t hurt right? Besides, I know all of you like downing Green monster smoothies in the morning too!
Yowza, these pancakes made me feel suuuppppperrrr energetic and awake afterwards!
Anyhooz, thanks Wei-Wei for notifying me that the cartoons that I posted in my last post weren’t showing up. Hopefully I’ve fixed it! Take a break, get some LOL’s in your system here.
Oh Friday…you are beautiful.

Yep, I am currently addicted to that stuff! I’ve been reading other blogs and with all this talk about Amazing Grass and its truly amazing powers, I finally gave in and bought a $20 8.5 oz canister of the chocolate fusion flavor. MmmMMM! I LOVE it in my Green Monster smoothies! Like what other people use, I throw in some sliced bananas, spinach (I use frozen), unsweetened organic soymilk, a spoonful of Green Chocolate Infusion powder, and blend away! The result is frothy, green, filling, wholesome SMOOTHIE!
Okay, so maybe not the most appealing color and appetizing smoothie, but I promise, cross my finger, swear by solemn oath that this baby is DEEEELICIOUS! Boy, and it gave me so much energy throughout the day! Usually I get sleepy after 2 hours of waking up, but today, after downing this thing at about 7:30am, I was all up and ready to go for a kickass workout at around 9:30am. No drowsiness, no muscle fatigue (despite I only snoozed about 7 hrs last night). It was also surprisingly filling! Usually I’m still hungry after my bowl of oatmeal, but this thing filled me up!
This weekend was also Admitted Students’ Weekend. Yay prefroshlings!
Okok need to go work…or sleep. Guess which one I’ll choose? ^^
