A great start to today: First, swimming was awesome. I worked really hard and decided to hop in the medium fast lane with my buddies instead of the faster lane that I've been swimming in. There is a speedy guy that likes to take extra rest in the medium fast lane but lately he has been coming more and getting back in shape so that he needs less rest. I would guess he's in his mid 40s so he is in good shape for leading the lane. We did a nice workout and seriously my arms hurt by the time I was out of the shower after the workout. 3600 yards in an hour and 10.
For breakfast, I was inspired by Heather's avocado week. Last week Bill bought 4 ripe avocados and I really haven't been feeling them. I made 2 batches of Heather's hot chocolate soup to use up an avocado. Nick LOVED it and it was a great dip for PB oatmeal protein pancakes.
peanut butter protein pancakes:
1/2 c ground oats
1 tsp maple syrup
1 T almond butter
1/4 - 1/2 c almond milk/milk
1-2 T hemp protein powder
1 T flax or chia seeds
+/or apple sauce for apple pie pancakes
