Curried, chicken, garbanzo beans and Sweet Potato stew…

I like a good curry and I found this recipe on Pinterest, and the pictures just looked really delicous. And when I asked my family if they wanted curry my husband and daughter both said yes. So this is what happened, cause I didn’t have all the ingredients and I do like Carrots in my curry.
Also I try not to eat potatoes, rice, pasta and fruits after 3pm, but this is an exception today.

2 Teaspoons of yellow curry powder you can always add more.
Salt, to taste

1 can (15 oz) chickpeas
1 large sweet potato peeled and diced into 1″ chuncks
1 can (15 oz) light coconut milk
10oz. of cooked Chicken Breast
brown rice, for serving

Instructions:
In a large skilled or wok heat the olive oil, and add the onion. Cook for a couple of minutes until the onion has a glazed look, then add the garlic, ginger and Curry Powder, cook for a couple of minutes this will develop the flavors. You can always add more spice later.
Now add all the other ingredients (except for the rice), I rinsed the coconut milk can with some water and added that to the pot as well, so that everything is covered. Then bring to a simmer and cook for at least 30 minutes, even better if you can let it simmer for 50minutes.

At the last minute you can add some parsley to it and serve it over rice.

Bon apetit

Protein Pancakes Take 2…

I wasn’t happy with the pancakes from 2 weeks ago, so I made another batch and these were super yummy and fluffy.

Ingriedients:

6 egg whites (you must you egg whites cause you want to beat them stiff and that doesn’t work with egg beaters, or the “real” eggwhites in a carton)
1 cup of oatmeal, ground in a blender
1 scoop of Warrior Blend Protein Chocolate Flavor
1/2 cup of So Delicious Vanilla coconut yogurt

Beat the eggwhites until they are stiff, you should be able to turn your bowl upside down.
Then add all the other ingridients and fold them under.
Heat the griddle and make pancakes.
This makes aprox. 8-10 pancakes.

To save on sugar, I heated up some frozen blueberries with some water, and poured that over my stack and then put a dollup of Dairy free Vanilla Yogurt on top.

Chocolate Protein Pancakes…

I woke up this morning having a craving for Pancakes. So off to Pinterest I went and searched for Protein Pancakes. I found a recipe that sounded great. When I went to my fridge, I noticed my cottage cheese was not so fresh anymore, but I had unopened Ricotta in there so that is what I substituted. Also I reduced the eggwhites, cause the first batch was terrible and landed in the disposal. So here we go:

This makes 4 big pancakes:

2 egg whites
1/2 cup low fat Ricotta
1/2 cup oats
1/2 scoop of Protein powder (I used Cellu-Cor Molten Chocolate)

Put in blender and mix.

Then prepare like regular pancakes, medium heat. I put some cooking spray on my griddle.
