A few weeks ago emotional eating was trending in my email inbox. Emails from clients and subscribers started trickling in. The questions started with food. “How Can I End Emotional Eating?”  Then I started getting questions about booze… “How Can I End Emotional Drinking?

I mean Food, Alcohol, Cigarettes and Coffee are Number One Best Sellers in Grocery Stores for a Reason…

Let’s be real, our go-to’s, quick fixes… the treats, the booze, the cigs, the coffee… cause the feel bad – eat/drink/tap out – feel worse – crave – gain weight – feel even worse – repeat cycle. Choosing and using unhealthy options to self-sooth is like putting a band-aide on you emotional bullet holes. Always choose, clean, natural foods and exercise to reduce stress.

I regret working out – said no one ever.

Working on these topics triggered me to go a little crazy one afternoon, when I saw a “healthy” recipe floating around Facebook. It claimed it was “healthy” when in reality it was actually straight up terrible for you. I shared why ‘Healthy Recipes’ like this Make Me Crazy because their ingredients actually sabotage your weight loss and wellness goals.  I break down the ways these recipes can actually make you even more emotional when you eat them – because they’re setting you up for failure while you’re innocently thinking you’re doing the right thing!  I remember falling for recipes like that… and they kept me stuck craving food and far from fit.  That’s why I’ve been on a recipe sharing kick.  I had a few of my subscribers request for protein pancake recipes… that are actually healthy so that’s what today’s post is all about.

Here are 2 Protein Pancake Recipes I created that include truly healthy ingredients that will help you lose weight, won’t trigger cravings and will keep you feeling fuller (longer) between meals.  These are 100% natural and good for you and your family.

Protein Pancake Recipe #1

Ingredients

2 whole eggs (I used organic, cage free eggs)
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 tbsp. almond milk
1 tbsp. stevia

Directions

Coat a frying pan with nonstick olive oil spray and preheat over medium-high heat. In the meantime, combine all ingredients together in a small mixing bowl. Pour the pancake mixture into the center of the pan, using a spatula to form a circular shape. Cover and cook for 2 minutes. Use the spatula to carefully flip the pancake to the other side. Cook until the cake is golden brown and completely cooked through the center. Makes 1 serving.

Enjoy as is or top with fresh fruit.

Protein Pancake Recipe #2

Ingredients

1/2 banana, mashed
2 eggs, whisked
2 tbsp Protein Powder (I recommend these protein powders)
1/4 whole grain oats
2 tsp peanut butter

DIRECTIONS

Mix together bananas, eggs, and protein powder until well combined. Place a pan over medium heat. Grease the pan with nonstick olive oil spray. Once pan is hot, add the pancake mixture to the pan, forming a circle. Once the pancake begin to bubble, carefully flip it with a spatula. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side, depending how hot the pan is.

I hope you Like these Recipes!

The first recipe is best, when eaten after a workout… you don’t need to add protein powder because the eggs have enough.  The recipe with the banana is best eaten *before* a workout. Banana is a natural electrolyte. Mother Nature’s Gatorade. Enjoy!
