weigh in monday {banana and egg pancakes?!}

finally! a good week for weight loss.  last week was spent purging my soul as well as some pounds.  total lost last week, four pounds!   i put in 280 mins {which averages out to 40 mins per day, 10 mins above my 2013 goal.}  in those minutes i burned 2024 calories.  officially patting myself on the back.  this week i was an emotional hot mess.  making healthy decisions is even more challenging being that i am the quintessential emotional binge eater.  i hit the bike or the rower when i got angry.  i made healthy food decisions.  i am pretty darn proud of myself.

one of my new favorite recipes is for pancakes.  i know, i know.  pancakes do not equal optimal health.  keep reading.

these babies have three ingredients.  1 banana, 1 egg, and a handful of blueberries.  no flour.  no sugar.  fruit and protein.  done.  i have made these twice and not taken the time to photograph my own.  i mean, hot pancakes are better than luke warm.

here is what you do:

mash your banana.  whisk in your egg.

throw in some blueberries once your pancake is in the skillet.  once it starts to bubble, flip.

and you are done.  three pancakes for 65 calories.  no guilt.  a really healthy and easy pancake.

with the extra calories you saved, you can put a tablespoon or two of maple syrup.  i thought the blueberries gave enough sweetness and i opted for no syrup.  these are my new “go to” dish when i am craving some comfort food.  my brain is still wired to think that pancakes are a decadent treat.
