I would like for you to all to meet The Pumpkin Pancakes Summertime cousin.
If you know me pretty well, then you know Pumpkin pancakes are one of my favorite pancakes. So sweet and delicious and you get a serving of veggies (not that I don’t get enough).
Well stores down in VA like to be a pain in my butt. It is becoming nearly impossible for me to find any cans of pumpkin. When I do, though, I will hoard.
Greek yogurt has the same effect in pancake making as pumpkin in making them so moist, so it makes an awesome substitute.
The Greek Yogurt Pancake(with blueberries)
½ cup flour
1 scoop protein powder (If I’m not addicted to pancaked, I am to protein powder).
1 tsp baking powder
½ cup Greek yogurt (I used fage)
½ cup blueberries
About ½ cup water
Mix and pour on griddle.
Incase you guys wondered (or didn’t follow zee blog over last summer) Anna is my real life bestie. I mean I have about 2 real life friends and then 100 blogging bffs. Then my parents and brothers, because legitly, Anna and zee fam are about all I see down hurr. I’m perfectly okay with that. Oh and my road race besties, gotta see them every weekend. 🙂
I went on a date with zee bestie today to Pdubs aka Panera. Why I decided that was acceptable word for it, I’m not sure. I was super pumped though, because she called me and said she would be a little late because she went running! Seriously, do I force all my bestfriends to be runners.
Incase you wondered what I have been up to workout wise the last few days. I have had a few 8 mile runs and did some swimming. But here is the big news:
I took my bike out for a spin. YES 5 miles of gloriousness and now I’m more sore than I don’t know what. That 5 miles is killer. For all you biking babes and dudes, props to you guys.
Today I went for a swim after Panera with Aanna. We had such a fun time and were both so focused as if we stopped the creeper next to us would stop and talk. Um and he asked if one of us would rather share a lane with him versus each other. No thanks.
No really-I don’t.
Question for you:
1. What recipes remind you of the summertime? Or what foods?
I can’t really say pancakes because those just remind me that I’m living.
2. Are your besties athletes with you?
My two bdubs (okay really this word will get obnoxious quick) in Upstate is actually the other female distance swimmer with me. The other one used to swim but got a shoulder injury. .
Anna down hurr, is running to run and because she loves to stay active. She does a few road races with me but she runs on her own time because she is normally a late night jogger and you know us grandmas gotta be in bed by the time she starts.
I don’t force any of my friends to workout with me and I’d rather be there besties then their gym stalker.
