Since the theme of WIAW is “Fall into good habits” I figured I may as well talk about some of the habits that I have formed recently. Although I can’t guarantee they are necessarily good habits, nor can I can guarantee that they are the true definition as they are somewhere on the border between habits and routines.
To start off with breakfast, I am getting into the habit of making unsuccessful pancakes when I attempt pancake making on a weekday…
Breakfast:Chocolate pancakes turned out a bit too crumbly. I guess the greek yogurt was just screaming to be dressed.
Yet I have gotten into the habit of successful pancakes when I attempt pancake making on a weekend. As a side note: I think there should be a verb for pancake making. Maybe panamaking?
Breakfast: This recipe make 5 large pancakes
So here is that pancake recipe using coconut flour I talked about on my Monday post:
Makes 1 serving (5 pancakes)
- 1 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp protein powder *
- 2 tbsp Teff Flour
- 1/4 cup eggwhites
- 1/2 cup liquid **
- 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- dash of salt
- Extract ***
*I used 1 tbsp unsweetened whey, and 1 tbsp vanilla vegan proteins
**I used half almond milk, and half cold brewed coconut tea (couldn’t taste the mint)
***I used Capella Boston Cream Pie Flavour Drops
- Cook like a regular pancake (surprised?)
- Note: I like my pancakes cold, so I stick them in the freezer for a few minutes before eating
You didn’t think I would leave you without a texture shot?
Let’s get back to those habits. I am getting into the habit of successfully eating mini baguettes the perfect way while walking.
Step 1: Purchase baguette on way to work. Feel the fresh warmness. Let out a sigh. Break in half.
Step 2: All while walking: Eat the hot insides. Scoop in some laughing cow. Spread. Enjoy
Not only have I formed the habit of eating a mini baguette on the way to work (not every day mind you), I have also gotten into the habit of eating my lunch on a stroll. I can’t sit at a desk for 9.5 hours without a meander!
Beans, dressing, peas veggies. A blob of hummus hiding under my computer (peeping out)
On the other hand one this that is not becoming habit, but more of a rare “to heck with it” moments: onion dip. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE onion dip, but onions give me some crazy digestive pain, so three hours after the snack I am not a happy camper (it was delicious though).
Snack: Sourcreme dip. With Hi I’m Skinny Corn Sticks
What types of habits have you formed recently? What type of routines have you formed recently? Do you ever have something you know will upset your stomach?
