Evening Snack

Allright, allright, I confess! Tonight’s supper didn’t make my blog, not because I had leftovers or because I ate out, not even because I had a repeat meal. Nope. That would’ve been too easy and wouldn’t have called for a confession! I didn’t post tonight’s supper simply because it didn’t fit the healthy bill, or the monthly indulgence.

Oranges!

When I like something, I could eat it every single day and never tire of it. Sometimes, I also wish I could have it more than once a day… OK, this is starting to sound a little weird… moving on!

This week, oranges were on sale at my local supermarket. 10 pounds of the fruit went for a mere 5 bucks! I bought a case, not too certain what to expect because, frankly, I find that oranges often lack taste and juiciness. So I tend to buy them only to cook with, or add them to salads and such.

But those oranges I just bought? They are absolutely EXCELLENT! So I have one or two every day. I like them so much, they inspired this photo…

It’s only too bad half the case is already gone… I should’ve bought more!

Breakfast!

I recently happened to fall on a recipe for Oatmeal Protein Pancakes on the Net. I didn’t keep the link, but it was extremely easy to memorize, so I decided to give them a try this morning.

Well, I am sold. The texture is good and moist, with a little bit of a crunch coming from the oatmeal. The taste is really good too. I added some cinnamon to mine (I love cinnamon, so I tend to add it to just about anything I can!) and I think that really helped give a sense of sweetness to the pancakes.

It’s one of those meals that is hard to believe is so good for you really.

Here’s the (extremely easy) recipe:

  • ½ cup Rolled Oats
  • ½ cup 1% Cottage Cheese
  • ½ cup Egg Whites
  • ¼ tsp Baking Powder (optional)
  • ¼ tsp Cinnamon (optional)

Just mix all the ingredients together in a blender until nice and smooth (a Magic Bullet works wonders*) and cook in a preheated skillet coated with cooking spray for about 2 minutes per side.

Serve with loads of fresh fruits and a drizzle of honey

I chose to make only one big pancake, but you could easily make 2 smaller pancakes.

*I really owe my daughter an apology for ever criticizing her Magic Bullet when she first brought this into our home. Back then, I had told her that it was nothing but a waste of valuable space. Well, I guess I have to eat my words now, as I would be the one using it all the time, like several times a week…
