Pink Ladies' Breakfast

 So, my Vitamix went out to repairs but I still had my Magic Bullet so I felt the need to start my day with a smoothie bowl (especially since I ordered a large supply of frozen dragon fruit). Anyway, with my Magic Bulket in one hand and my ingredients in the other, I managed to create a beautiful and delicious breakfast.

Pink Ladies' Breakfast Bowl
1 frozen pack of dragon fruit (I use Pitaya Plus)
1/2 banana
1 serving of Powerootz pea isolate
1 tsp maca powder
45 g of Jordan's Country Crisp w/Strawberries cereal
1 tbsp hemp seeds
Blend all ingredients except the cereal and hemp seeds (you can use whatever cereal you want). Top with cereal and hemp seeds. Bon apetit!

Protein Packed Mornings

So, as I continue my journey as a bikini competitor, I have been searching for various was to increase my protein in my diet without having to constantly eat tofu (like my previous coach had planned- who was a moron). As I love being in the kitchen, and I LOVE breakfast, I decided to find a way to make the most of this meal. So here is my vary own vegan protein pancake recipe to share with you all. Enjoy!

Lulu's Protein Pancakes
1/3 cup Arrowhead Mills Buckwheat Pancake Mix
1 servings of Powerootz Pea Isolate
1/2cup of unsweetened almond milk
1 tbsp of Neat Egg
1tsp ACV
water (as needed)
1tbsp hemp seeds
1tbsp dried unsweetened coconut flakes
1tsp Grade A Canadian maple syrup (don't even think about getting the fake shit)

In a bowl mix the almond milk with the Neat Egg to make a slurry. Then add the dry ingredients and whisk. Add the ACV (apple cider vinegar) and continue to whisk. Check your batter, if you need to add more liquid, add 1tsp of water at a time. Refrigerate over night.
In the morning heat and grease your pan or griddle (I use coconut oil cooking spray) and spoon out the batter (1 do 2 tbsp, but it really depends on how big of pancakes you want). It takes ~ 2 mins each side to cook. Top the pancakes with the hemp seeds and coconut and maple syrup.
