It’s getting cold at night, the leaves are starting to change and Starbucks has their pumpkin spice latte. Since we can’t get them everyday and your going to need some nutrition.
Also keep in mind that a grande 16oz latte will cost you…
380 calories
13 grams of fat
51 grams of carbs (49 from sugar)

So here is a recipe from a great website for an alternative Pumpkin Spice Latte
If you want to make them higher in protein add a scoop of vanilla whey protein powder. Enjoy!

Low calorie high protein pancakes

I love pancakes, who doesn’t? This week I’m on vacation and have some time so I made myself some pancakes.
This is a healthier version! Not organic just lower on calories and higher in protein.
Follow the recipe on a Aunt Jemima box of pancake batter. Here’s the big substitution:
Half mix half protein powder, the recipe on my box calls for 1 cup of mix so I use 1/2 cup mix, 1/2 cup banana whey protein isolate.
The good thing about this is that the pancake batter isn’t as thick so you get more pancakes.
The original batter would have given me 6 pancakes at 390 calories total, with 84 grams of carbs.
The alternate with protein is 16 pancakes at 150 calories with 42 grams of carbs.
The pancakes come out super thin so fewer calories.
Remember to use a Pam/cooking spray and most importantly a pure maple syrup, it’s more expensive but because it’s a stronger flavour you use less and it’s a whole food, do its much better for you than a corn syrup based syrup.
Enjoy!
