The Importance of Protein in Your Diet

Why should you care about making sure you get enough protein? Here are five good reasons:

It is a component of every cell in your body. In fact, hair and nails are mostly made of protein.

Your body uses it to build and repair tissue.

You need it to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals.

It is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.

Keeps you full and aids in effective weight loss.

High Protein Pancakes you can Make at Home

Why pay 2 to 4x as much for a “protein pancake product” when you can actually make a better, fresher version of your own?

Here is how you do it:


1. One cup old-fashioned oatmeal (yes you can use steel cut)

2. one Dozen egg whites (you can also use liquid egg whiles like Muscle egg and use their wonderful flavors like cakle batter, mint, chocolate, etc)

3. Four tablespoons Splenda or Stevia sugar substitute

4. Half a teaspoon cinnamon (optional if using flavored egg whites)

5. Half a teaspoon vanilla extract (optional if using flavored egg whites)


Blend all ingredients in blender or with hand blender on a low speed just until everything is blended.

Pour in med/large pan (heated to medium with Pam spray; we like Pam Olive Oil).

Let cook until bubbles form on top of the pancake and start to pop to form open holes (usually 4 to 5 minutes).

Flip and let cook another 3 minutes.

Makes 2 servings.
