Beet Protein Pancakes [Recipe]

The (Christmas) beet goes on. I'm so festive-feeling that even I want to slap me. But how awesome are red pancakes in the winter?!  Especially with they're delicious and trimmed in white. Oh... and they have a not-so-hidden healthy ingredient.  Beets lend their color to these festive 'cakes.  It's strange, yes.  But I'm telling you... it's good! I use the new Quest vanilla milkshake protein powder in my pancakes.  It's flavor really is fantastic, and it bakes like a champ.  These tasted like a beet milkshake pancake.  In a good way.  Really. … [Read More...]

All About That WIAW

Who loves leg day? Not. Me.
