Lawn bowling….possibly a new fav sport

Standard

Two weeks ago I went to a team building event at the local lawn bowling club.  So much FUN and I was on fire!  It combines 2 things I love to do curling and bowling.  You throw the ball like a bowling ball but it curls and has similar rules to curling.  I was scoring points like crazy and my team won!  It was an awesome event to do as a team.  There was lots of competition and everyone had a blast.

I had so much fun I looked up the closest club to my house and I’ll definitely be checking it out next year!!!!  I can’t wait 🙂

Weekend Recipe Success X2

Standard

This weekend was full of family time, good food and tea! Friday night I got to hang out with my tea team for training, laughs and tea! Saturday was painting pottery with my mom; we created it for mother’s day and painted it for her birthday. I can’t wait to see how they turn out! At night we had a fire with the family and my cousins. Yesterday was FOOD TRUCK day and shopping for the charity Send em off smiling! What an awesome day! I got to eat amazing food, schnitzel poutine and chicken mango grilled cheese, and I got to help out some local children in need by getting them all set for the first day of school with supplies and clothes!

I had some free time between all that fun stuff so I decided to get creative with a few of my meals. I’m starting to love experimenting in the kitchen with new recipes and personal creations. It’s keeping things fresh so I’m not eating the same thing every week! I’ve also started experimenting more with protein as I’ve upped my intake to keep me fuller longer so I can stick to my 3 meals a day.

I’m on day 4 of my 3 meals a day goal and I’m doing great! Day 1 was super hard but after increasing my protein the last few days have been much easier.

I hope you enjoy these delicious recipes

Pancake mix (Gluten Free for me!)

Mix pancake mix together following instructions (use 1 portion of the dry and 2 portion of the wet ingredients)
Add 1-2 scoops of protein powder
Add 1 spoonful of Cocao powder
Add 2-4 spoonfuls of PB2 (depending on how peanut buttery you want it….I add 4 because I can’t get enough peanut butter flavour)

Top with peanut butter and/or maple syrup or eat plain your choice….I added extra peanut butter crunchy style…oh yeah!
