Progress & Banana Pancakes

Yesterday was weigh-in day and I am now down a total of 13.2 pounds! Typically after two-three weeks I give up by convincing myself that I have this under control and it is okay if I slip up. Well, one slip turns into two and then three…Not this time!

I got a lot of grocery shopping done this weekend and house cleaning. I am looking to start a cleaning challenge but I’m not quite sure how I want to approach it. More to come on that soon. My Spring break begins after this week so I will have more time to dedicate to such things.

I also tried a new recipe today which was incredible! I made banana pancakes that didn’t involve flour. I’ll be adding a recipe page to make it easier to find things. This is all new to me so I’m not expecting this to be pretty at first. Here is the recipe with the Smart Points value included for Weight Watchers:

Banana Pancakes

1 Ripe Banana (0 SP)

2 Eggs (4 SP)

1 Dash of Salt (0 SP)

1/2 teaspoon Vanilla (0 SP)

  • Mix all ingredients until a smooth batter has formed
  • Cook on a warm frying pan (I use ceramic to minimize my use of oil)
  • Cook until golden brown on both sides
  • Serve with peanut butter or maple syrup

This recipe could be modified to use egg beaters to reduce the point value. I don’t use egg beaters at home so I can’t say whether or not this would change the taste. These were definitely a hit with my husband! I was surprised at how great they tasted. I hope someone out there gives this a shot. If you have any other great suggestions leave a comment and let me know! I would love to hear from you.

Tomorrow starts a new day and I’m excited to end tonight. It was a warm Spring-like weekend and it gave me a taste of things to come.
