Day 4 – You Crave What You Eat

by in Blog Posts, Food & Nutrition October 22, 2015


OH, how I LOVE pancakes!!  Ever since I went gluten-free about 2 years ago, I love to take indulgent recipes and make them healthier!  One of my favorites is pancakes.
With some chopped nuts, fruit, and 100% pure maple syrup on top, pancakes only need about 4-5 ingredients (none of which include thickening agents or hydrogenated oils) to make the perfect breakfast. You can find more PANCAKE recipes here.


Breakfast: PANCAKES! (Makes at least 2 servings)
3 mashed bananas
3 tbsp almond butter
4 eggs
1-2 tsps cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
Cook on very hot surface (I used a cast iron pan). Spray with cooking spray and spoon mixture into pan until it cooks through. Serve topped with berries and 1 tbsp 100% pure maple syrup.

Snack 1: String cheese and 1/2 large pear

Lunch: Citrus Goat Cheese Salad
2 cups arugula
1 tbsp crumbled goat cheese
1/2 grapefruit, divided into segments
2 oz grilled skinless organic chicken breast
1 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette
1 tsp chopped walnuts
*Tip: make extra chicken for tomorrow’s lunch!

Snack 2: 1 cup steamed edamame

Dinner: Open Faced Bison Burger
4 oz ground bison – grilled
Top with sliced tomato, mixed greens, 1/4 sliced avocado
Add hot sauce for some extra kick
*Serve with 1/2 sweet potato topped with 1 tsp olive oil, salt & pepper and mixed organic greens on the side with balsamic vinegar.

Here is one message I received on Tuesday evening:
“This is going great! Amazingly full! Only doing 1 snack as I keep losing track of time:). Did salad for lunch today from yesterday. Anyway, husband loved dinner last night – I felt great this morning! I love how easy you make this for us. Thank you for sharing!!”
