Watching a bit of the Tour de France on TV. Those athletes are freaking amazing! Did you know that the average age of a tour rider is 40??? I am not sure I heard that right. The average age of the winners is about 30.
The riders were just entering the feed zone ( a term which I find quite hilarious for some reason). They were all taking bags full of food (not stopping of course). The commentators were talking about how the riders need to make sure they get the bag in the feed zone or they are at the risk of using more calories than they can take in and will bonk on the ride. Here I worry about that with my 30 mile rides! Makes me feel like a wimp 😀
Don’t have many food pics today, as it was one of those weird days where I forgot photos because I got off schedule.
I was out looking at some houses as possible flip candidates today. Not sure how I will fit that into my schedule (just to do the work), but you can always find a solution, right?
Munched on the last of these today:
Regarding the recipe on the pancakes – had a couple questions on those again.
Here it is!
1/3 cup of cottage cheese (1%)
1/3 cup of rolled oats
1/3 cup of egg substitute, or 1 egg + one white
dash of vanilla
dash of cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking powder
(I do not use sweeteners, but most people probably would want to add some splenda or something to this.)
Blend in a blender and cook like regular pancakes. I love my Magic Bullet for this! You must blend this, otherwise the oats will be too chunky. The batter should be nice and smooth. Makes 3 big pancakes!
Lots of protein and fiber!
1 cup (40 grams) frozen blueberries (My favorite brand is Wymans wild blueberries).
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tablespoon cold water
In a small saucepan or microwave, heat the berries to a simmer. Mix the water and cornstarch and stir into the blueberries. Heat gently until thickened. Super easy! The Wyman’s blueberries do not need any sweetener added, these wild ones are naturally sweeter and have more blueberry flavor.
