Today's breakfast involved a combination of beautiful things worth sharing. To be honest, my intention was to have a huge bowl of protein pumpkin oats but, as I was mixing ingredients I started to crave eggs and veggies!
I do not know about you, but whenever I am in the mood for eggs, I have to combine them with some sort of bread, pancakes or waffles... Anyone else...? I can't just have eggs without pairing it with a carb source... hmmmm, seriously; anyone else??
Anyway... My oatmeal somehow turned into Pumpkin Oats Protein Waffles this morning, and it was delightful. The key to this concoction, is to leave the oats whole in the mix (I normally ground them.) These were so filling, so tasty, so good!
1/2 cup of rolled oats (not ground)
1 egg white (straight from the egg baby)
1 tbs of brown rice protein powder (use one of your choice)
2 tbs of 100% pure pumpkin
1/2 serving of dry cheesecake pudding mix (optional, but tasty)
1 tbs of ground flax-seeds
1/2 tsp of pumpkin spice
1/4 tsp of ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp of baking powder
a pinch of salt
1/2 cup of water
Preheat and spray your waffle maker with cooking spray. Add all of your ingredients into a bowl and mix until well combined. Pour half of the mix into the center of your waffle iron and close. Your waffle iron light will turn green before your waffle is done, so be sure to check your waffle and allow it to cook for 3-4 minutes total. Repeat step for your second waffle. Enjoy every bite!
So good, highly recommend you make these ASAP... Yum, yum!
Anyway, I have not shared work out things on the blog in a while so I figured I would include my current workout split on here.
I currently workout six days a week with an active rest day on Sundays. Our active rest days consist of doing things around the house, a hike or just a long walk outside with our dog...
My current workout split is as follows:
Tuesday: Back and HIIT (loving MAX30 cardio for my cardio)
Wednesday: Chest, Arms, Shoulders & 30 minutes of cardio
Friday: Back & 15 min HIIT
Saturday: Chest, Arms, Shoulders & 30 minutes of cardio
As you can probably tell from my split, I concentrate my workouts around heavy weight training. I recently added 1 1/2 hours/a week of cardio, back into my routine because I have
strangely been in the mood for it.
I do workouts I enjoy, and change them around whenever I get bored with my routine!
What are you doing to stay active this Fall? Are you going to give my waffles a try? Try them, try them!!
