#FoodieFriday: High Protein Bento Boxed Lunch

Happy Friday All!

For me, lunch is the hardest meal to plan. Half of the week I am at home, and the other half I am on campus in class. For the days I am not at home, I have been packing a bento boxed lunch to take with me! It’s kind of like a grown-up version of a lunchable,  but I love being able to pick at it throughout class without making any disruptions! This recipe is also super easy to personalize and make your own. Any of the ingredients below can be substituted for other veggies, fruits, and granola bars. Check it out below!

What You Need:

Favorite Type of Lunch Meat (I used crack pepper turkey!)

Mini Sweet Bell Peppers

Strawberries

Fig Bar

Reduced Fat String Cheese

What You Do:

First, throw in one serving of lunch meat.

Next, add in the string cheese. I use the cheese to separate my meat from my produce.

Then, add in your veggies and fruit. I typically add 3 bell peppers and 5 strawberries.

Finally, wrap your granola bar (I use fig bars) in foil or place into a sandwich bag and lay on top of other food.

Now, throw it in your backpack, purse, or car, and enjoy as needed!

#FoodieFriday: Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Happy Friday All!

I recently purchased Pamcakes’ Pumpkin Spice High Protein Pancake Mix. After making this mix a few times, I decided I wanted my pancakes to be extra pumpkin-y and created this recipe! Try it out below:

What You Need:

1/2 Scoop Peanut Butter Flavored Protein (Vanilla would work well, too!)

1/3 Cup Pamcakes Pancake Pumpkin Spice Mix (Kodiak Cakes will do!)

1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice

1/4 Cup Liquid Egg Whites

2 TBS Pumpkin Puree

1 TBS Peanut Butter

What You Do:

Add 1/3 cup of pancake mix into a bowl. Then, add in the 1/2 of a scoop of protein and teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice to the mix.

Now, add in your egg whites and pumpkin.  Mix ingredients together.

Add a splash of water to get the right consistency.

Turn on the stove top, and start flipping pancakes!

In the mean time, put your peanut butter in a small bowl, and microwave it in intervals of 20 seconds until you obtain a liquid consistency. Drizzle over pancakes instead of using syrup.

Enjoy a protein packed breakfast!
