Low Carb Protein Pancakes

1 cup quick oats
½ cup liquid egg whites (or 4 eggs whites)
½ cup low fat cottage cheese
1 ½ scoops vanilla protein

Simple combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir until they are incorporated. Add a small amount of water for desired consistency. Coat your pan with some non-stick spray. Pour out each pancake slightly larger than your spatula. When the top starts to bubble, just flip it over for roughly 30-45 sec. These are a great grab and go snack, or could be used for your pre or post workout meal to give your body plenty of fuel for training and recovery. For topping mix some sugar free jam and greek yogurt and spread over the top or use a sugar free syrup. For more healthy fat use 2 whole eggs instead of the whites.

In a blender combine all ingredients, mix on a high speed until the mixture is frothy...pour mixture into your ice cream maker and follow manufacture instructions...

When you have it at a soft serve consistency move to a container and place in freezer. This will freeze hard as a rock. When you wanna scoop it out defrost in your the microwave for 15-20 seconds.

Fish Filling

3 oz white fish (I prefer Cod Loin)
Cajun seasoning,
Olive oil (just enough to cook them in)


Cole Slaw - Mix all ingredients, except cabbage in bowl and let rest in refrigerator for 30 minutes. After the sauce has rested mix with cabbage and return to the fridge for an additional 30 minutes.
