I am actually looking forward to some 70s weather this afternoon too! I may have to go on a run after work this week just to celebrate. Haha…just maybe.

So I thought I’d share one of my favorite post workout breakfast recipes with you. Lately I have been loving me some protein pancakes just because they are so darn easy to make! I love making these especially after a long run because they leave me happy and satisfied…and they kick that RUNger right in the hiney.

They are crazy easy and crazy good!

Here’s what you need…

-1/2 cup of rolled oats
-Splash of water or almond milk (I use water and it works perfectly)
-1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (this one lately is my go to)
-1 egg

Mix…flip your flapjacks and serve with your favorite syrup, fruit or whatever toppings you desire.

I made a delicious post workout smoothie this morning with frozen bananas, frozen cherries, some Everlast and ice cold water. I actually wanted to throw in a little almond milk but I was out of it so decided to just try it with H2O. Success!

For me, this is a great option because as far as protein supplements go, I really like to know what is going on in my drink. You feel me? I am not a fan of chemicals and stuff I can’t pronounce and this takes all of the guesswork out. Fun fact about me…I also used to be lactose intolerant as a child so now as a grownup I’m really cognizant of dairy and I know what it does to my system if I have too much. So, for me the vegan protein option is like icing on the cake.

I think this protein is great in smoothies, provides a smooth consistency/texture and actually takes great even in water. I was surprised by the flavor and the fact that it was not chalky at all.

So if you are considering trying out a new protein I definitely recommend this one! Right now they have an offer going- buy 1 bag of Everlast VP get a free box of FUEL free (includes free shipping). Click here to find out more.
