Post-Workout Muscle-Building Protein Pancakes
You are going to enjoy this meal…thank us later!;-)
Eating quality food after your workout is crucial…. at least if you want to ensure any gains from your hard work. In order to optimize your results, you always need to replace the amino acids and glycogen lost during a training session.
Starting the #MuscleBuilding process by increasing protein synthesis and nitrogen retention requires a quick dose of the right protein and carbohydrates. We cannot always rely on protein shakes, chicken and rice etc. It can get boring and is an absolute affront to your flavor-deprived palate. Besides, your body prefers a wide variety of nutrient-dense foods.
Protein Pancakes Recipe:
Mix 4 egg whites, ½ cup rolled oats, ½ cup cottage cheese, 1/8 teaspoon baking powder and ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract. Cook on a preheated griddle on medium to low heat, until it bubbles then flip and cool another 30-60 seconds. Top with fresh berries (preferably “the keep you young forever – blueberries”) or banana slices.
These pancakes pack a mean protein punch without a ton of carbs, perfect for those looking to retain muscle tissue when trying to lean up. The medium- and slow-digesting proteins help keep a steady stream of amino acids to stay more anabolic.
