A long time ago, a lame poorly lit cellphone picture of an omelet on my Instagram feed became the most popular picture I had for about a year and a half. Why? Chad had made eggs that tasted just like pizza. Yes, it’s possible to have your eggs taste like pizza—and have it fit into your macros too! Good news for those on a Ketogenic Diet: this recipe has less than 2 grams of carbs! Besides the yummy flavor, the best thing is that it’s really inexpensive, easy to make, and you can find the ingredients in almost any store. If you want to add some carbs, just nuke a sweet potato or have a glass of Karbolyn!
After being on a virtual banana tirade where everything had to be made with bananas, I was getting “banana-ed out”. I was totally craving pancakes but not wanting to fall into a carb coma, so I googled protein pancake recipes. Problem is they all seemed to contain either bananas or an astronomical amount of calories. I finally succumbed to turning myself into a food guinea pig and substituted the bananas for Greek yogurt.
Three Words: Epic. Breakfast. Win. First of all, these pancakes are positively HEAVENLY! Second, they are also fairly low in calories, yet super filling. I didn’t have to add any sweetener because the banana I used was perfectly ripe, and the sweetener in the whey protein really made them perfect.
