I have been working super hard on tracking macros lately. Not just because I think it’s beneficial for my own accountability, but also because I’m working on a simple macro planning and tracking program for you guys. Personally, I think macros and flexible “dieting” (if you can call it that) is the most successful way to understand exactly how much you’re consuming and where you can have the greatest success with nutrition improvement.
To that end, I have been playing around with super simple recipes that are easy to track and delicious to consume! This is one of the many that I’ve been working on. I hope you enjoy not only how good it tastes and how it will quickly curb a craving while feeding you oodles of healthy protein, but how simple it is to make – 60 seconds in the microwave, baby!
PS – this is so much better topped with Walden Farms Sugar-free Pancake Syrup 🙂
