Perfecting the Protein Pancake

Perfecting the Protein Pancake

Yesterday was quite a relaxing day. I spent a good portion of the morning on the phone catching up with my Dad, which was great because we hadn’t had a chance to chat in way too long.

For breakfast I made a protein pancake. I’ve been stuck on the Tone It Up protein pancake since buying the Tone It Up diet plan a few weeks ago. I’ve never been a huge pancake person but protein pancakes are super easy to make, tasty, filling and apparently addictive…

For today’s version I used fresh figs from Isaac’s parents’ tree and the pancake turned out to be amazing. I think I’ve officially mastered the art of making (and flipping!) the protein pancake.
