Vanilla Creme Quinoa CrepeA Chapter by Sara Mercury
another decadent breakfast for the athlete wanna-bes
I had this breakfast this morning. I kid you not, it's one of the best crepes I've ever made!
1/2 scoop Jillian Michael's (vanilla creme flavour) protein shake mix (dry)
1/2 cup Egg Beaters
1/8 cup (or 2 tbsp) dry quinoa (cooked according to package directions and cooled thoroughly)
dash of cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
dash of ginger
4 Truvia packets
Cook the 2 tbsp of quinoa according to package directions then allow to cool thoroughly and set aside. In a small mixing bowl, combine Egg Beaters, 2 Truvia packets and the 1/2 scoop whey protein shake mix, nutmeg and cinnamon and beat until well blended. Add the cooled, cooked quinoa and mix well. Pour into a lightly oiled skillet and cook on low heat, carefully browning each side (be careful not too cook too fast, as it will burn very easily). Covering the pan with a tight-fitting lid will help the gluten-free crepe to rise. Remove from heat when it's lightly browned on either side and place onto a plate. Sprinkle the remaining 2 packets of Truvia over the top of the hot crepe, put on a dash of ginger and enjoy!
This doesn't seem like much, but it contains around 200 calories and is very satisfying when eaten very slowly with a cup of hot coffee!
I'm so full I could pop ... literally. This food actually EXPANDS in your tummy, helping you to feel full! Give it a try! I know you will love it!
