Breakfast for dinner: PANCAKES!

My roommates have been wondering why it smells like breakfast at 11pm every night, it’s me:)  I am completely against the “no eating after 8pm” rule.  If I’m hungry, I WILL EAT.  Sleeping is recovery time right?  So why would you starve your body at such a critical time?  I already wake up ravenous after a good night’s sleep when I eat a bedtime meal, I can’t imagine how I’d feel if I skipped it!  Though carbs aren’t the best idea, it’s important to get protein and fat about 45 minutes to 1 hour before you sleep.  The protein is what will repair the muscles that you’ve been shredding, and the fat will slow absorption.

I’m not really down to eat a piece of turkey breast and some almonds right before bed (I’m more of a dessert girl anyways). So I’ve been trying out pancake recipes every night for the past couple of weeks (tough life right?).

I’ve finally found a winner!

and no they don’t even have protein powder in them:)  It’s real people food, just at the right time!
