You might have noticed I’m a bit obsessed with pancakes. Tiny bit.
Most recent version was a result of the following:
Watched a video about PCOS. Person in video claimed that if you suffer from PCOS you should count calories for 3 days, because that is knowledge you need. How many cals you consume on a daily basis. My Ed*: Counting calories you say!? We must!
I know this makes no sense. Not only because lousy reason but because:
a) I don’t have PCOS, I have PCO, not the same.
b) Even my PCO status is unclear, currently bleeding approximately every 2 months, highly regular for being me.
c) Nobody needs to count calories ever.
But I’m at a place right now where I’m listening to Ed. I get Lifesum (again) been using (far longer than 3 days).
Lifesum will also show you percentages of carbs, protein and fat.
In general, I strongly believe you don’t need to make special efforts to get protein into your diet if you’re vegan. Who ever heard of anyone dying from protein deficiency around these parts?? Nobody that’s who. It doesn’t happen. Make sure to have some B12 supplements, and iron if you’re struggling with iron uptake, the latter goes for any diet, and you’re good to go!
Despite this, my reaction is 10% protein!? My hair will fall out! Clearly, what I do suffer from is anxiety. And a bad case of unreasonable.
I’m upping my protein like a woman possessed.
Here’s an easy way to pack 20 g of protein into one (vegan) meal:
Find yourself a nice protein powder. My choice: a rice protein, because it doesn’t taste anything. Take 20 g of your protein powder of choice, 30 g flour, 1 tsp baking soda, pinch of salt, 1 banana, 50 g soygurt, if you want a thick batter, if not, use water or any type plant milk instead. Optional: bit of flaxseeds.
You could mix by hand, but I prefer using a blender.
Gives you about 5 small pancakes. And yes, they’re supposed to look like that. I ♥ rustic.
Serve with raspberries sprinkled with a wee bit of ginger, maybe a bit of agave and cinnamon.
