Base Recipe for LowCarb Protein Pancakes

Hey all! This is an oldie, but a goodie. Try this recipe - do it now.

I  posted this recipe for super clean protein pancakes right when I started this site. People LOVE them! Bonus that they're extremely clean and tasty. I have these on the weekend usually when I want to spend some time in the kitchen with a coffee. It really doesn't take that long, so they can actually be made during the week.

Now I know everybody has their own version of protein pancakes. I came across this one years ago and I've stuck with it. The reason being that it's really clean. Some recipes get carried away with oats, "clean" flours, even sweeteners... but I like it simple. I know exactly what's in these and they leave me satisfied. They sometimes turn out a crepe-like texture which is fine by me.

Consider this recipe a base - and add your own extras. Apples and cinnamon?  Pumpkin puree? Go for it!

I'm on vacation!

Happy New Year to All! Thanks for checking out the TrainRite website :) Just to give everybody a heads up; whether you're a regular here, or you've found the my site through a listing on Amazon, eBay, or Etsy.... I'm OUT!

It's -24C here in Toronto, and that's just about my threshold.

I'm on vacation until January 16th, 2015,  so I've temporarily closed all listings for TrainRite Fitness Journals. If you're looking to place an order, no worries I will reactivate all listings on the 16th, and will return to normal shipping times. (Did I mention I typically ship SAME DAY?!). So you can wait until then, or you can email me directly at: admin@trainrite.ca. I will check these periodically, and alert you upon my return!

Thank you all for an exciting and successful 2014!

Meal planning for tomorrow: savoury cottage cheese

Meal planning for tomorrow: savoury cottage cheese I have cottage cheese for breakfast most mornings after the gym. It's quick to prepare, I personally love the taste and it's a great protein. It'll easily keep me full until lunch. My standby combo is cottage cheese and fruit... and I was really surprised to find out that most people eat it as a savoury dish, and even cringe when I mention anything sweet with it! Anyways, I had to try the savoury version and I've kept this extremely quick version in my rotation about once a week. Anyone else have an old standby for cottage cheese?

As always I'll post the recipe under my "food!" section, but this one's so short I'll also post it below:

*single serving

Ingredients

1/2 cup cottage cheese 1 tablespoons yellow onion, chopped 1/4 cup chopped red and yellow peppers 1/4 cup grape tomatoes, quartered salt and pepper

Directions

mix all ingredients together dash of salt and pepper to taste
