I think I already posted my Oat Bran Pancake recipe. I was trying to figure out a new way to get in my fruit in the morning, all my protein, and still have a great breakfast. I found a new way!
Peaches & Cream Pancake
3 Tbsp Oat Bran
2 Tbsp Water
1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
1/4 c Cottage Cheese
1/2 c diced peaches (I use canned and rinse them)
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, except the Peaches. This recipe should make 2 pancakes. Cook in a skillet. Place on a plate. Top with the peaches. I also add just a little Sugar-Free Syrup. Delicious and Healthy!
So, I have put biking into my workouts. First, because I signed up to do a Duathlon in July and need some major work. Second, because it gives me another form of cardio. Biking is freaking hard! As a kid I rode my bike every where! I would ride across Sacramento, CA without even thinking about it. I want to get back to being able to ride without wanting to die.
Today's ride consisted of mostly wind trying to blow me backwards. I was hating life for a good 3 miles of the 3.2 I rode. Nothing like throwing yourself in the fire to become stronger.
My family is still going strong with eating Gluten Free. I have found that GF bread at the store is nothing short of disgusting and I have been making my own bread. I have to boast that mine is fabulous! My next endeavor is to make hamburger and hot dogs buns. I don't really feel like I am missing out on anything food wise and my eating is far more controlled.
So, this last weekend my husband and I decided we are changing our family's eating to Gluten Free. We have a couple family members with Autism and other with different cognitive disability. I know the research on this is still debatable; however, we are willing to try it. I also have a son who is Type 1 Diabetic and we are hoping this will improve his health in that area too.
Today, breakfast went great. I helped the boys measure their cereal and they like the one they tried. I bought a bunch of different kinds for us to try to see what we liked and didn't like. GF bread is so expensive and tiny to boot. I had to make my son 2 sandwiches for his lunch to equal 1. Other than that so far so good. Now, I just need a plan!
I made a goal for myself to do a 5K race every month until Nov. I
have registered and am excited! These are the Races I will be doing this
year. My goal is to improve my time with each race. Happy Running!
