WIAW # 114 – 21 Day Fix Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

Wow, Wednesday has come and gone. I can’t believe this week is almost over. But, I still have so much to get ready to leave. I can’t believe I am going away for 2 days, might not sound like much for me it’s A LOT. Not only do I have to pack, but I have to get everything ready at home. Daddy has to get Sophia on the bus and Isabella to school, that’s my biggest worry. I don’t want my trip away to affect my girls in a negative way. I am excited for them to have time with their daddy, but boy am I going to miss my family. Yes, it’s less then 48 hours, but still it’s long for me.


Since, it’s Wednesday I am going to share what I ate today. As you know, I am still trying to figure out what works for me when it comes to my diet. Today, I followed the 21 Day Fix 1500-1800 calorie plan (This is my favorite plan, I don’t feel hungry and I feel satisfied.) The higher plan makes me nervous, I was going to give it a go, but just wasn’t ready yet.


After working out and getting ready for the day I enjoyed my 21 Day Fix Pumpkin Protein Pancakes. This recipe is slightly modified from my original pumpkin protein pancakes. 1 red, 1 yellow, 1/2 orange

  • 1/3 cup oats (I used gluten-free oats from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 egg white (I used 3 Tablespoons liquid egg whites)
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon ground flax seed
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)


  1. Place all ingredients in a blender (I use the Nutri Bullet, but any blender will do.) and mix until well combined.
  2. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Cook between medium and medium-low. You want to cook these slowly or you will burn the outsides and the middles will be undercooked.
  4. Once the top bubbles try to flip if it sticks the wait another minute or so.
  5. Cook on the other side, then you are ready to eat.
  6. Top them with your favorite topping. Maple syrup and a little bit of butter is my favorite. My girls love putting whipped cream on theirs.


Before leaving for gymnastics I had a bowl of strawberries and grapes. 1 purple

Oh this may just be one of my favorite meals and it’s so easy, delicious, and healthy. YUM!! 21 Day Fix Nachos. 1 red, 1/2 yellow, 1/2 blue 1/2 tsp.

Lunch # 2

A salad with turkey, almonds, walnuts, and a little dressing. 1 red, 2 greens, 1/2 orange, 1/2 blue

Isabella and I brought home donuts from the cider mill and those are my favorite, so today I enjoyed 1/2 a donut and counted it as 1 yellow and 1 tsp. (Donuts are not in the book, so I guessed). These are amazing heated up in the microwave, they taste as though they were fresh from the oven. Half of one was plenty for me.


I had two meatloaf muffins and greens beans with carrots. I haven’t been adding the almonds lately and I have been cutting the butter and oil in half, this way I use less containers and they still taste great. I love taking recipes and making them fit my meal plan without sacrificing taste. 1 red, 2 greens

This was one of my favorite days of food lately. At the end of the day my body feels well taken care of and I still enjoyed my donut. I love eating everything in moderation.

  1. Yum! Protein pancakes are always a good idea and these look deeelish!

    I don’t count calories or macros, however, I’m always trying to make sure I’m getting enough protein in as my body functions better on a high protein diet as I’m so active!

    • They are AMAZING; I have been eating them like crazy. 🙂 Yes, protein is oh so important; I always feel so full for hours.
