My Monday has the potential to be quite insane…Express Sculpt Class, Spin Class, HIGH SCHOOL YOGA! (more on that in just a bit) So it was definitely time for pancakes. I decided to try something a bit different and make pumpkin pancakes! 🙂
When the griddle was nice and warm, I used an ice cream scoop to pour the batter into the pan!
The organic Pam gives it that bubbly goodness:
When bubbles form on the top, flip those babies over!
I love the color that the pumpkin gives the pancakes. Golden orange and delicious!
Made some homemade pumpkin yogurt by combining more pumpkin puree, and some Greek Gods honey yogurt:
Plated the cakes and berries, and drizzled with the Pumpgurt. 😉
And of course, a drizzle of pure maple syrup. The doggies were jealous as usual…
(Don’t worry, he got an un-documented bite of pumpkin goodness.)
I will be on the go ALL day until about 7:00pm so I went ahead and prepped a quick lunch for work later. Took some Earth Fare chicken salad, and stretched it a bit further by adding some diced green grapes, and some crisp celery:
Added a large stalk of celery and about a cup of grapes (I love them!) Stirred in a large bowl:
(I also added a bit of plain Oikos yogurt to moisten it a bit more!)
Can’t wait for lunch!
So today is the first day of the new pilot program for the YMCA Yoga program for High Schoolers, and yours truly will be hosting it! I am a bit nervous just because I have been working strictly with elementary age, so high schoolers are going to be a completely different world. I am going to go through the kids yoga cards, and try to develop a simple yet effective 40 minute class to do today. Any suggestions from yoga fans/instructors out there???
Today is also my first “Express Sculpt” class which is a 30 minute weight class which will hit all muscle groups starting with large muscle groups, and moving to smaller as the class progresses. I am excited about it, and hope to get a good turn out. You never know with new classes how they will work, I am just glad Kim lets me do them and try them!
Going to end today with 5:30pm Spin class. Mondays are great and PACKED at the YMCA so it makes teaching the class alot easier. So much energy on Mondays, I love it!
Ok, I am way behind already and it is only 10:00am!!! Crazy day….bring it on! Have a good one bloggies!
