With Crossfit it’s easier [the scheduling, not the workout itself – ha!]. The sessions are earlier, shorter, and close to home. I can mix my protein shake right after and then head home for dinner. But it’s always after roller derby practice, once I’m finally home [close to 10pm], that the hunger kicks in. I tried bringing my protein shake supplies a few times but it just didn’t cut it. And then of course as soon as I walk through the front door I overindulge and feel awful.
I finally decided to look up a recipe for an edible that
includes whey protein! I’m a huge fan of breakfast for dinner, and these
pancakes certainly did the trick. Paired with fruit and sugar-free maple syrup, they left me feeling satisfied and guilt-free. If I want to eat them immediately after practice [during the 45 minute drive home], instead of syrup I can use almond butter and bag ’em up. The best part is that I can include these protein pancakes
as brunch on game days, when it really counts. 🙂
