If this isnt a post which BEGS for some reader help Im not sure what is.

To know me is to know NEVER to ask me for recipes.

It isnt that I cant cook (because really, there’s nothing I loathe more than a woman who pulls the “oooh, Id burn water if I tried to boil it” chickenbus.) it’s just that for the most part I choose to eat my foods as close to their original state as I can.

I really like to eat clean (some might call it plain) and find that I feel far better and more energetic when I do.

A few years ago this clean eating mightcould have been about vanity (who can even recall)—but now? It’s all about keeping my tank filled with high-octane ANYTHING that will allow me to run around with my daughter around 12 hours a day.

But I digress (whine? tomato. tomaaahto.) as the entire reason for this post is to bestow upon you one of my recipe favorites.

Sure it’s good for you.

SURE it’s a fantiztastic way to start your day (hint hint to those of you out there STILL skipping breakfast).

But despite all that it really is good.

MizFit’s Mishmashed Almost ‘Cakes

1 cup egg substitute.

1/4 cup cottage cheese

1/3 cup protein powder. ANY BRAND. Read the label. You can use FLAVORED but just remember we want LOW SUGAR.

1/4 Fiber One (original)

1/4 cup dry oatmeal

1/4 cup Sugar free syrup

Blend the above Chickenbus in a blender and VOILA.

Now, if youre me, you shall find that each time you make these the batter turns out a different consistency (what’s THAT about?).

Sometimes it’s a bit too thin and Ill add flax seeds to thicken (flax? an upcoming entry in & of itself) or too thick and I’ll dump in more egg substitute (pure protein, People!) or syrup (pure heaven, People!).

Play around with it.

You might prefer to add some honey or frozen/fresh fruit to sweeten and you COULD lessen the fiber & use 1/2 cup dry oats and skip the Fiber One.

After the concoction is complete you simply make pancakes as you would with any other (odd high protein) batter.

Me? I like to use a waffle iron every now & again for some texturizing variety.

Go forth and find your blenders—–I’ll wait.

Give em a try and let me know how they turn out.

    Sounds…odd. But I might give it a whirl. I’m always up for anything that is pancake like.

  2. PJ Hoover says:

    Hmmm. I’ll add this to my recipe box … somewhere.

    C…you need to work on your sales pitch here. Tell us how fab it is – the “it is good for you and you’ll feel great” is a tough sell.

    My favorite breakfast? (Well outside of a sinful brunch that has no place on a fitness site)
    container of non-fat plain yogurt
    packet of splenda (or honey if you don’t like the chemicals)
    1/4 C dried cranberries
    1/4 C granola
    mixed all together and eaten while watching Miss S smoosh her bananas into her hair

    Makes me happy!

    Flax seed is a wonderful thing!! I love to grind it (have to eat fresh or becomes rancid) and sprinkle over applesauce, oatmeal, on top of cereal, etc. etc. It really keeps the digestive tract, uh, on track.

  7. MizFit says:

    Trace,
    I ADORE it as well and eat it by the spoonful (much to Renaissance Man’s disgust)…and now the Tornado eats it from the bag as well.

    she crazy like her mama.
