Hey guys! How are you on this Wednesday? Today I’m linking up for another What I Ate Wednesday post. But, before I get to what I ate, I have a delicious recipe that I want to share.
WIAW is coming from Monday of this week. My sweet tooth started nagging me Monday afternoon during my workout. When I was finished I decided to experiment a little bit with my Bob’s Red Mill protein powder and have something other than a shake. When we went shopping last week, the place that I got lunch at also served crepes, and I really wanted one. But I passed. My roommate in college and I used to make crepes all the time, and they are one of my favorite treats. But, I literally never make them. I don’t know why. So, I decided to try to make crepes out of my protein powder and they turned out to be delicious!
All you need is protein powder, one egg, and almond milk.
I whisked together one scoop (1/3 cup) of vanilla protein powder, one egg, and a half cup of almond milk. I actually had to add a little more milk, so it was probably more like 3/4 of a cup. You want the batter runny.
Then I poured some into a hot skillet and waited until it was bubbling before I flipped it.
You don’t want to pour a lot, crepes are thin. This mixture made 4 crepes. The protein powder made them sweet, so they didn’t need any sugar in the batter.
I filled mine with bananas and dark chocolate chips, but you could fill them with anything!
This was a sweet treat that I could enjoy without feeling guilty! I will definitely be making these more often.

Okay, now on to what I ate
I started my morning early with a run. I was planning on just running a couple of miles, but that turned into 5 and then a half mile walk with Jake. When I was done, I fixed a Bob’s Red Mill chocolate protein shake. It was the powder and almond milk.
Then, for lunch I had a turkey and swiss sandwich with mustard on 45 calorie Sara Lee bread.
After lunch, I headed to the pool for a few hours. When I got out, I was hungry so I had some pineapple for a snack!
Later that afternoon I worked out and that’s when my sweet tooth kicked in. So, I made the crepes. Then for dinner, we had breakfast. My favorite! I fixed scrambled eggs, turkey sausage links, and wheat toast with low sugar jelly.
It was a full day of good eats!
