I needed to be more active outside of the house. After the lockdown of 2020, I found comfort in my new normal; Having a break from the daily commute to work and social obligations, I needed a mental reset. I needed to hit the reset button on my metabolism, but activity level, and change the way I viewed the food I consumed. My goal is to be more active until my birthday (November 6th–Team Scorpio!) to see if I wanted to keep any of these lifestyle changes.
Quick and simple recipes will always be favored by those who just want to get in and out of the kitchen with a delicious but fast meal.

Alternatively, you can add-in the egg (product) of your choice, and the milk (product) of your choice and it instantly ups the protein content! Even more importantly, they taste great!Continue reading “RECIPE: Kodiak Cakes Protein Pancakes”
