Week 5: OK I give in :-(

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all saw in 2014 in a way you enjoy. I spent the evening with the training buddies in my PJs eating chocolate. I was forced to play Monopoly, but other than that it was a lovely evening 😉 We went for breakfast the next day, which was fat-filled but […]

Week 3 and it’s all gone tits up :-(

This was not a good week at all. I’ve been a bit ill, I’m a little bit injured and I have been so tired I almost fell asleep at work! Really looking forward to Christmas so I can have a rest! Monday 16th: Pressing with Tara and Anna. Today was shit. I really wasn’t happy […]

Week 2: PBs galore!!

This week, not only did I train with competition in mind, but I also discovered the Pixlr app for my phone, so now all my images have borders and filters! Sorry! I’ll get bored soon! I’ve decided that cycling 30 miles a day, even only 3 days a week, is too much as I’m too […]

As you know, I’ve been really into my pancakes recently, but […]

more chocolatey protein pancakes

Further in pursuit of the perfect protein pancake…

So this weekend, bolstered by the success of last week’s pancakes, I’ve made a couple of other versions, one that’s more chocolatey than last week’s; the other made with ground almonds rather than coconut flour. The More Chocolatey Ones Basically, the ingredients and method are exactly the same as last week’s pancakes, but I’ll add […]

In pursuit of…the perfect protein pancakes!

I’ve spent a fair amount of time browsing the web looking for a good protein pancake recipe. There were some really delicious sounding ones out there, but typically I didn’t have all of the ingredients! So I’ve taken some inspiration from a few of these recipes and created my own. And they were bloody gorgeous!! […]
