Post all your 'good' recipes for losing weight and ride energy here! I'll start.
So, I've been hooked on oat pancakes for breakfast:
My 'improvements' as of late to that:Originally Posted by SimonEd
- 1 cup of oats
- 1 apple
- 1 tablespoon of pumpkin (I have a can of pumpkin pie filling (just pumpkin) and spoon out a tablespoon a day)
- pumpkin pie spice (has some cinamon, ginger, nutmeg)
- a little milk
In a food processor I throw in everything and blend together, then make the pancake. I find for my particular processor it works better by putting the apple and pumpkin first and everything on top. The last thing is a few drops of milk (I use a can of nonfat evaporated milk - lasts a long time and I don't drink milk otherwise). If you have too much pumpkin in there the middle won't cook - though it won't taste bad even if it doesn't
I've also made my own hummus lately:
- 1 can of chick peas
- 1 clove of garlic (more if you'd like)
- a little olive oil
Throw in a food processor/blender until smooth. I took a half a can of olives, chopped them up, then folded them into it to add a little body. I also blended in a jalepeno pepper. The possibilities are pretty endless but it's a good and cheap snack combined with some nonfat whole wheat pita or any other dipping medium.
