Tasty Tuesday - ProCakes Review


As a FitFluential Ambassador, I was lucky enough to have an opportunity to receive a sample of ProCakes to review.


I'm not always a big pancake eater. However, lately, I have been making more protein pancakes on the weekends, especially after a long run. So, I was very eager to try out ProCakes, even more eager when I realized how easy they were to throw together and how simple the ingredients list is.

Here's just a bit of background information from their site:
ProCakes was founded in 2014 by Caren Magill, a fitness enthusiast, bikini competitor and soon-to-be fitness trainer. She left a corporate career in social change marketing to pursue her love of healthy comfort food with zero compromise on taste and enjoyment.

ProCakes is a high protein pancake mix, designed to satisfy cravings for comfort food while providing a healthy dose of protein to help maintain a lean and strong body. It’s one part nutritional supplement, one part awesome baking mix. Made with no with added sugar, and no gluten, we've fused whey protein with a mix of nutrient dense flours like almond and coconut, and paired them with a mix of lighter gluten free flours to keep the overall pancake experience just like you’d expect to taste. 
Macros (after adding eggs and milk): 20 grams of protein and only 14 grams of net carbs per serving.
All you have to do is mix the packet with 1 egg and 1/3 cup milk of choice. I did choose almond milk so the macros above are going to be a little bit different.


Some protein pancake recipes I've tried can be really dense. These were light and full of flavor. And did I already mention super easy to make? Yeah, that too. I topped mine with some leftover grilled peaches and some peanut butter drizzle (not shown) and dove in.

I not only love the reasons why this company was started, but the pancakes themselves. Healthy ingredients, no added sugars, just clean and simple.

Have you tried ProCakes yet? What's your favorite protein pancake recipe. Better yet, what are your favorite toppings?

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon . The support and words mean so much to me. My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on. I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear. But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well the

Full-Body Workout  I'll readily admit that getting up this morning was quite painful and almost didn't happen. I forced myself out of bed though not exactly excited about tackling a full-body Pyramid workout. Sort of daunting at 5 am really. I did the warm up from Shock Cardio Cardio Core Circuit (cardio only premix) then hit the weights. It was a pyramid up only so I increased my starting weight. I topped it all off with the first 2 1/2 drills from the cardio workout. I ran short on time and was basically spent. Squats into Plie Squats Step Ups (seriously hate these especially at 5:30 am) Incline Chest Flyes into Chest Press Pullovers into DB Underhand Rows Step Ups (freaking again) Static Lunges Overhead DB Press into Lateral Raises Deadlifts Kickbacks into Overhead Extensions Hammer Curls into Alternating Curls Calf Raises I am so excited to report that my new cross-trainers and running shoes arrived today. Can't wait to test both of them out. I waited way way way too
