Protein Pancake with Nutella

So here we go about my first food recipe. Actually, I’m not sure it’s counts as a recipe, probably more simple than bread and butter, but hey! I’ll call it recipe anyway 😉

So I usually eat this when I’m craving for sweet stuffs, but don’t want to eat shite like Mars or Snickers bar.

It’s called Protein Pancake (chocolate flavoured), sold by Nutriversum (and by many others I’m sure). Very simple to make, as one spoon (they sell the spoon with it) need 75ml of milk. That’s it, you only have to dissolve the powder in the milk and bake it / fry it in a pan. I pick baking lately, the mess is waaay better  compared to the mess when I’m using frying pan in the kitchen 🙂

So the powder contains IMG_7557202 kcal / 15g carbohydrates / 20g protein / 6g fat for one serving.

 

 

 

IMG_7542I add 75ml / serving 1.5% milk, so one fried piece will have 239 kcal / 19g  carbohydrates / 22g protein and 7g fat. You can bake it to various forms, I usually pick larger forms as I’m making 4 slices at once into one piece, but when I’m in the mood, I pick the muffin forms.

 

 

I eat it with one teaspoon of Nutella, for the extra sweetness, it only adds around 20kcal / 5g carbohydrate and 1g protein, so if you ride A LOT (run a lot, or doing any serious activity A LOT 🙂 ), you’ll don’t have to worry about the Nutella. That is unless you start to consume it in itself with tablespoons (I’ve read that it can happen 😉 )

So in the end, you’ll have some nice looking, good tasting (if you have sweet tooth) and protein / carbohydrate filled goodie for the day instead of simple chocolate bars!

Thank you for your interest!

I’m Andras, Hungarian, father of two, husband of one, and have a full time office job in Budapest.

In 2018 I’ve decided that after many years of struggling between running and cycling (and occasionally long distance triathlon) that I’ll stick to cycling. Why?

Multiple reasons. First of all, I have a road bike and a mountain bike at home, so that part is pretty self explanatory. But I do have running shoes as well, so that reason alone doesn’t really cut it. The second reason was because I ran a lot outside, during winter and summer as well. I don’t like winter running outside. Not.Even.A.Bit. Okay, getting there…

The main reason is because I like to longevity of bike events (think like above 100km events), I like to be in a speedy group rolling around a lake, and most of all, I did started with bike racing (although a ver basic level) back in ’97. Also have everything at home set up for indoor training.

I have a Tacx Flux trainer, a Cannondale CAAD8 with 105/Ultegra, a nice PC setup to live stream my heaving chest during events and trainings in Zwift, and yes, coming from last fact, I do have a Zwift account.

And boi! I like Zwift. Like, I’m a fan of it. I really think that Zwift kickstarted an evolution in thinking about indoor training a few years back. But a lot of others already said that. I was part of the Zwift beta (have the beta cycling kit to prove that 🙂 ), and hit level 25 in cycling recently (I’ve skipped a year in training…).

So I picked Zwift as a training tool to enhance my experience with the planned training for 2019 together with Training Peaks, and will post my journey here!

However, I couldn’t resist to the newish addition of Zwift running mode (hooray!), so I keep on running, but mainly on treadmills before the gym workout to collect the experience points and level up 🙂

So all in all, you’ll see mainly cycling and Zwift related stuffs on my site, and occasionally running (Zwift running) and some food. Food is good, right?

 

With that, thank you for your attention!

KR,

Andras
