protein pancakes









It has been almost two weeks since I've been on the Internet -- I'm going to tell you what I’ve been up to.

Not much. But then again, a whole lot.

I actually was somewhat busy -- just two Thursdays ago I took my Chinese final and went to prom (I'll save that story for another day).  Then, I just sort of dropped off the face of the Earth.  I worked part-time as a hostess at a cafe, did some reading (just finished Paper Towns by John Green), snapchatted, did some almond butter stress eating, and a whole lot of wandering.

Yesterday, I wandered down the street aimlessly, first into a CVS to buy a few pointless things like tanning oil and Icebreakers gum.  Then I talked to some of the volunteers collecting signatures outside the metro station for a good while about string quartets and the weather.  Then, I wandered downtown and had Mediterranean style tacos with my mom at 3pm.  Leisurely summer livin' at its finest.

A few nights ago, I got into bed at 10:10 p.m.  Turned off the lights.  My room was nice and warm because I never turn the AC on.  I stayed up until midnight just watching Breakfast at Tiffany's on my laptop and then drifted off to sleep. 

It's like time just slowed down twofold.  My brain cells were burnt and fizzled to a crisp.  The thought of sitting down and writing made my stomach turn.  I ate a lot of Popsicles.

And then I realized that I had not been blogging and felt totally ungrounded and lonely -- so I’m back!  I'm looking forward to going on wild summer adventures and telling you all about them.  I'm going to bake luscious cakes and eat them and tell you all about those too. I don't regret my disappearance; I think it was healthy to do a bit of wandering.  Now, I'm ready to get caught up in the world again like I'm known to do and attack whatever comes my way and report to you all about it.

Speaking of attack, this is total "attack food."  These protein pancakes have two ingredients, protein powder, egg whites, and pure power.  Eat these for breakfast and you will feel like a literal beast for the rest of the day.

With love,
Erica





Ingredients

1 scoop protein powder
3 egg whites

Beat the protein powder and egg whites together well in a bowl. Add a dash of cinnamon/vanilla/stevia to taste.  Heat a bit of coconut oil in a skillet and cook for about 3 minutes on each side over medium heat.

Feel free to jazz these up with chocolate chips, blueberries, bananas... whatever floats your boat.
