Birthday Breakfast and More

Before all the breakfast fun begins I have to show you what our dog Millie likes to do when it storms…

Now on to our special birthday breakfast. Lew requested blueberry pancakes (specifically like his daddy makes them) for his birthday breakfast.

The recipe I used for his pancakes is the pancakes is the America’s Test Kitchen Buttermilk pancakes and I added blueberries. (He said they were almost as good as his dads, that is a huge compliment.)

For myself I made The Fitnessista’s Protein Pancakes witha few minor changes. I used vanilla whey protein and skim milk.

I topped my pancakes with Natural Maple Syrup, blueberries and a spoonful of Naturally More Almond Butter. I also had a glass of skim milk. This was an awesome breakfast! The pancakes were definitely different but I was full until I had lunch at 1:00!

Lew’s second request was for spinach artichoke dip. So, I went to the store and bought some ingredients to make some for him. My lunch consisted of spinach artichoke dip with salsa a few corn tortilla chips and carrots. I also had green pepper slices with hummus. It was very yummy!

I went for a run around our little town today which was super hard! I normally run in the morning on the treadmill. My 4 mile run turned into 3.6 miles. I made a huge mistake of tightening the stomach strap on my camel back and could barely breath and it took my a mile and half to figure out what was wrong with me! After loosening the strap the rest of the run went pretty well.

Post run I had a protein smoothie topped with almond butter and a whole wheat blueberry muffin. I don’t have a photo but it included:

Skim Milk
Strawberries
A frozen banana
Vanilla Whey Protein Powder

Dinner at church included a little chicken salad, some veggies, two pieces of cantelope and a small slice of Lew’s Birthday Cake!

What a day! I am exhausted!
