This post begins with a public service announcement to always be aware of your surroundings. Last week I came out of Walmart, was putting my groceries in the trunk when I suddenly had an eerie feeling that someone was watching me.
I turned around to find a man in a car right behind me, staring at me from his window. The way he was looking at me I guaranteed his intentions were not good. He was so close to me he could have reached out and grabbed me. Scary!
I immediately jumped in my car and locked the doors. Strangely, he didn't move his car until I put mine in reverse. The entire drive home I was paranoid watching the rear view mirrors to make sure he wasn't following me.
When I got home, I called the guy and he freaked telling me I'm no longer allowed to go there alone. Yeah, like that's realistic! Now I tell him whenever I go there just in case. He always tells me "please don't get abducted."
In all seriousness, this happened to me in a matter of seconds (I only had one bag of groceries) and at 8:00 in the morning.
If it could happen to me, it could happen to anyone so really be aware of your surroundings and who's around you at all times.
I'm usually good about that from my years of traveling as a consultant around the world, but obviously on this day I wasn't.
Now back to our regular recipe program, we're here today for Raspberry Chia Protein Pancakes! Protein packed and made with just 5 ingredients, these breakfast goodies are perfect for warm weather breakfast eating.
They're based off my 4-ingredient pancakes that have a secret protein ingredient. Don't worry, you can't taste that ingredient in them.
I can't tell you how many people I've convinced to eat them that have told me they don't like that ingredient on its own. That just proves you can't write-off a food.
There's many ways to eat things. Be open to trying them, and you may be surprised what you discover.
Many of my weight loss clients tell me breakfast is the most difficult meal of the day for them. Protein pancakes are my solution because you can cook them ahead of time, freeze or refrigerate then heat them in the microwave when you're ready to eat them. It's that easy!
Don't believe me? Give these Raspberry Chia Protein Pancakes a try! Breakfast will never be easier, or taste better!
