Chocolate Protein Pancakes

Here's the deal friends! Eating healthy DOES NOT have to be boring! This past week I started the 21 Day Fix with my 2017 Simply Fit Group! The workouts are only 30 minutes a day, the program is a total of 21 days, and there is also a pretty easy to follow meal plan with portion control containers and an app to help you keep track. 

Now I'll admit it....I really just wanted to do the workouts and skip the eating plan. BUT I WANT THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF RESULTS! And the program obviously works, that's why so many people have had success with it. So I decided that this would be a great kickstart to the year for my year long clients as well as myself. To get strict on my eating plan and really reign things in, and it's been well mostly okay! 

Day 1 & 2 were very hard. Day 3, a little better, Day 4 & 5! Doing so much better! It's definitely taken some adjusting because I had gotten super lenient on my carb intake, and was having my fair share of healthy fats, which this limits you on. 

As proof that you can have good tasting, and not boring food while eating healthy, here's one of my favorite breakfast foods with the breakdown for 21 day fix!
