Yesterday morning I decided to try making Dashing Dish’s French Toast Protein Shake and boy was it good!
Here are the ingredients:
- 1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese (you can’t even taste it)
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 tsp maple extract (or tbsp maple syrup)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- A dash of nutmeg or pumpkin spice
- 3-5 packets of Stevia (I used 1 tbsp of agave nectar)
- 1/2-1 cup water
- 5-10 ice cubes (I used 8)
- 1/2 tsp xanthan gum (optional)
Just blend all of the ingredients together and wah lah! Now you have a delicious protein shake with only: 180 calories, 0g fat, and 36 grams protein. It’s almost too good to be true!
After enjoying breakfast, I headed over to practice. Yesterday’s practice was really tiring. I was still sore from Thursday’s practice so the workout seemed to be harder than it should have been. We ended up doing 4 x 750 meters. After getting through the first two, my legs were exhausted. Despite being tired, I was able to keep going Gotta love erging!
Later, a few of my good friends came over. We ended up having dinner at TGIF Friday’s. I am not a huge fan of eating at Friday’s but we ended up having a blast! There is nothing like a good GNO
This morning I made some pancakes. We were out of (cow) milk, so I found a recipe online that used almond milk instead. I was a little nervous about using almond-coconut milk in pancakes, but they turned out really well! My friends even said that they were good
I spent the rest of my Sunday finishing homework and grocery shopping. With tomorrow’s 6k in mind, I made sure to have a protein packed dinner.
Later, my mom and I watched Once Upon A Time and Downton Abbey
How was your weekend?
