Protein Mug Cake and Mini-Goal Monday

When I spotted the Mug Cake this weekend at the expo I was reminded of the blog phenomenon – Protein Cake in a Mug! This was all the rage a while back and I knew I had to make one asap!

I’ve seen a lot of different versions of the Protein Cake (or protein puff) recipe, this is mine. In a non-stick sprayed mug:

1 scoop protein powder

2 Tb. egg whites

2 Tb. pumpkin

packet of stevia, cinnamon

dash salt, baking soda and baking powder

almond milk to desired consistency

Microwaved until cooked Smile 

I spread PB and apple butter on top. Great dessert!

Run: I did 6 miles easy paced today. About a mile in a HUGE German Shepard came out of no where. It was barking and running straight for me. I screamed, “NO NO NO!” because I thought it was going to attack me. I think it spotted a squirrel in the bushes because it just paused and ran back to its owner (who was at least 80 yards away and I didn’t see at the time).

My heart was racing and I got very scared. I think it’s rude that the owner saw that I was scared and did nothing to stop the dog or apologize that I just sh!t myself. Thanks.

Breakfast: I busted out  my new Attune bowl for breakfast this morning. It is super cute and comes with a twist on lid.

Attune had a table set up at the expo where you could fill up a bowl of cereal and granola and take it to-go. Genius right?! So many of the attendees are traveling and this allowed them to fill up a bowl for their hotel rooms. Then, all you need is to order a milk from a coffee shop at “Wa-La! Breakfast is served!!”IMG_0091 (1024x683)

I filled mine up with a mix of cereals and granolas, but ate all the big granola chunks last night Smile

Today I added yogurt, pumpkin, banana, chia seeds and cashews. It was an AMAZING breakfast!!!
