Vegan protein pancakes for breakfast

Today I want to share with my first vegan protein pancake. The recipe is from Fitfoodmarket and I’m very pleased of discovering this website. The girl who runs the website is from Spain and she is very active and motivational.

I was thinking on how to “veganize” this recipe and finally I tried it. And, here’s the result!

Vegan Protein Pancakes


  • 8 tsp of no-egg (Orgran)
  • 50g oat flour
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 scoop of vanilla-flavoured protein powder
  • 1 tsp rice syrup

Steps: (easy!!!!)

Mix all the ingredients well. Meanwhile, heat the pan with a little oil (only a few drops). Now get the pan really hot, then turn the heat down to medium and, to start with, do a test pancake to see if you’re using the correct amount of batter. It should take only half a minute or so to cook; you can lift the edge with a palette knife to see if it’s tinged gold as it should be. Flip the pancake over with a pan slice or palette knife – the other side will need a few seconds only – then simply slide it out of the pan onto a plate.

That’s all!

With this recipe you can cook 3/4 pancakes, and the nutritional information is:

  • KCal: 328 cal.
  • Carbs: 39g.
  • Fat: 4g.
  • Protein: 17g.

Remember that you can see all my intakes on Instagram and Myfitnesspal.

Have a nice day!!


Happy 1st year of healthy lifestyle!

Yes, one year ago I decided to go for a run in order to start a new lifestyle.

The August 7th, 2012 was the day when I decided to cut the passive lifestyle and start to eat clean. Since then, my life has changed a lot.

My weight was 62kg and I filled my body with junk food (people think that if you’re vegan you have to be skinny, but no, my friends, it’s not the rule!). I was fat and I felt bad with myself. That body wasn’t my body, not the body I wanted. So, one day – after trying different diets with no results – I decided to do some sport and eat clean. The easiest option sometimes seems like the most difficult, but really, it’s the best option!

I looked for motivation in Tumblr (it’s not a joke!). Tumblr was my starting point. I discovered that I wasn’t alone, there were a lot of people in the same situation. I spent many hours reading the workout plans of strangers, or what kind of food they ate. I logged in Myfitnesspal in order to control my daily intake and I worked out 4-5 times per week and trust me, it wasn’t anything difficult to do.

Furthermore, I started to follow some fit-girls’ profiles that kept my motivation on the highest level. Kelsey Byers, Jamie Eason, Ashely Scott (theskinnyfitgirl),… Nowadays, they still are my motivation, but now I am my main own motivation!

Months went by, and my body and mind started to change. At the beginning I used to wear a 42-size (Spanish measurements) and now, I wear a 36. My clothes fit better and it makes me feel more self-confident.

My self-confidence has grown up a lot, and I am so proud of myself.

Running was a surprise for me. I never thought that this kind of sport could change my life. Since then, I have run in several races, I have met awesome runners, I have joined at the Veggie Runners team in Spain,…

I’m very happy right now. My life has changed. And this change has been amazing! I’m all in this healthy-living lifestyle. And now, I know this is MY lifestyle.

and you know what? It’s only the beginning of my story… there’s gonna be more to live!

Autumn Goals!

Hi! How are you today??

I’m here again to share with you my october goals! I know that we are in the middle of October, but never is too late to do it!

But, before showing my goals, I’d like to check my September goals.

September Goals

  • Mantain the good habits. –> Happy! I did it! It’s a lifestyle, hard but easy to keep it on.
  • Training for future races.  –> I participated in my first race at the end of September and I’m training for my second race at the end of October.
  • Lose at least 4lbs (2kg) by September 30th – Approx 1lb a week. Done! I’m on the right way!
  • Go for a walk on the weekends. Minimum 3km/walk (1mile) –> Not at all, but I did some walks after work.

Well, time for my autumn goals!

  • Sleep! –> need rest for muscle growth, in bed by 11pm-11:30pm on weeknights!
  • Water Intake! –> Increase greatly, at least 10 cups per day.
  • Clean Eating –> Stick to it, no cheats until the last weekend of November! (do better batch cooking/prep!)
  • Calculations –> Count calories, fat, sugar, carbs, protein on MyfitnessPal
  • Weights –> Lift heavy with low reps! (5-6 days per week)
  • Cardio –> 4 days per week at least!

What are yours?
