Pancake In a Bottle?!?!


Is this some sort of spin-off of the Aguilera classic???

Nope….it was breakfast!

Batter in a bottle?!?!  Surely you jest.

It was actually delicious!

I headed over to the Hood’s this morning for our usual Saturday morning breakfast, this time…pancakes!

We made normal ones…

And pecan beauties…

These guys were so good.  The thought of pancakes under air pressure seemed a bit off, but they were just like pancakes should be!  Plus, I guess since they incorporate more air, they were way less calories…which obviously just mean more were eaten.  😉

I made 6 minis, and diced up a nice pear.  Cinnamon and a drizzle of Almond Butter completed the meal!

Some brown sugar may have been thrown in for giggles.

Check out their website for more info!  Such a fun breakfast.

Also needed some major coffee lurvin’ to make it through two classes:

After breakfast it was time to head to the YMC-izzle for Yoga!  I’m not going to lie, it was a major but kicker this morning, which is exactly what I needed.  She had us up on the wall!

I am absolutely loving me some Yoga.  I can feel myself becoming more flexible, and being able to take each pose a bit deeper.  It’s so neat to feel improvement!  Flexibility is something that is so easily taken for granted.  For someone who is even moderately active, Yoga does so much good.

Here are just a few of the benefits.

Directly after Yoga headed to Spin!  Class was great this morning, aside from one small problem.

I was completely and totally exhausted.

My body had had enough this week.  I did three hardcore weight days in a row starting on Wednesday (ps, BAD idea….you always need a rest day in between weight sessions) and my body had just had all it could take.  Pushed through the hour, and faked ALOT of weight/resistance.  I had to call on my inner GaGa and put on my puh-puh-puh Poker Face, puh-puh Poker Faaaaaaace.

Point is.  LISTEN to your body.  If you know you have had enough, do not risk overtraining!  Take a rest day, and let your body recover.  Tomorrow I am doing nothing, which will do my body/mind/spirit 10x more good then busting it out in the gym.  Ok, I am stepping off that soapbox.

Since I am celebrating Easter tonight back at the Hood’s, I pretty much have just snacked all day in anticipation of the goodies to come.  Here is a brief synopsis of the eats:

Started off with some Kashi Blueberry Field, and Blueberry Chobani….are we sensing a theme here?!

Purple goo, FTW!

Later chomped on some raw veggies (carrots, brocc, asparagus) and my faye-voh-right pine nute hummus!

Later…snacked on a Lara, and some grapes (I swear, all this food was spread out over the course of 6 hours, regardless of how it appears. 😉 )

IT’S PEANUT BUTTA JELLY TIMEEEEE!!!!

Well, the time has come…the eggs are boiled….the dye is ready….and my stomach is hungry again.

Everyone have a safe and wonderful Easter tomorrow….regardless of how you celebrate, find good food…good times…and good friends.

  1. I have been wanting to try the pancake in a bottle thing.. but it made me nervous! They look totally normal. I will definitely try it!

    I’m going to try these pancakes now just because the website sings at you!! “Make a better breakfast faster, batter blaster…”

    Something tells me that’s going to be in head the rest of the day 🙂

  3. Have fun dying eggs! Blueberry is my favorite theme too! When are we doing lunch??? Thursday? Friday? Thursday is better for me because I can take longer. Can’t skip again Friday….Earthfare? Sahib? Other?

  4. I have tried those pancakes! They actually tasted a little “off” to me. What did you think?

  5. Isn’t that handstand crazy? I did it for the first time on Wednesday!

    I absolutely love spin class! And I have been thinking about starting yoga lately too..because I keep reading about the benefits about it! But I have no clue even where to begin! But I love the idea of pancakes in a can! What a wonderful invention for busy mornings! 🙂

  7. I need pancakes now too! Yum! I love yoga; I’m normally all about hardcore workouts, but I’ve come to realize that yoga can be so intense. Oh, and pb and j larabars are my favorite flavor! So nom nom nom.

    I would be so nervous to try those pancakes! But I’m glad you enjoyed them. Tomorrow I’m definitely making some pancakes with some inspiration from you and throwing random goodness into them (carab chips?! goji berries?! heck yes!)

    And you just reminded me…I have a PB & J Larabar in my purse! Hmmmm I need to find an occasion to eat that. Shouldn’t be hard at all 🙂

    those pancakes are amazing! i discovered them a few months ago! yummy!

  10. Too weird… we ate almost the exact same things today! No Yoga for me though…I’m a hater. lol

  11. Don't Fight the Apple, Eve

    Yummy eats, I always see things on your blog that make me want to go buy them. I actually have a question. Maybe you did a post on this and I just missed it, but how did the Attune Challenge go? Thanks in advance.

    Evey

  12. Happy Easter Tyler 🙂 ❤

  13. That yoga looks so fun! I would love to go up on the wall!

    I know what you mean about needing your rest. I somehow pulled my lower back muscles (I think it was in BodyPump) and it’s killer! I need to rest up before I do it again. I have class Monday and really want to go, but I don’t know if my back will be up for it. I may just have to do some sort of cardio/yoga.

  14. I really want to get into yoga! I just don’t like the blood rushing to head feeling in some of the poses.

    YUM ❤ the purple goo. I must try this pancake in a bottle business!

    • Yea, I sometime still get that feeling from time to time. I think they more you do it, the less prominent the feeling though! Give it another go!

      The purple good was quite tasty. 😉
