Tacos and Pancakes

Ok, my recipe last night worked, so I can share it with you. IT IS SO GOOD.

Cilantro-Lime Pulled Pork Tacos

Here’s what you need:

  • Pork tenderloin
  • Jar of salsa verde 
  • Lime juice
  • Onion
  • Cilantro
  • Roma Tomatoes
  • Tortillas
  • Other fun stuff

Here’s what you do:

  1. Put the tenderloin in the crock pot. Cover it with the salsa verde and about 3 good squirts of lime juice. Low for 6-8 hours or High for 3-4 hours.
  2. Chop up a yellow onion and a bunch of cilantro. Put it in the fridge.
  3. An hour prior to eating, shred the pork (keep it in the crock pot), and add about 1/3 of the onion/cilantro mix.
  4. Assemble your tacos. I used corn tortillas, the pulled pork, extra onions/cilantro, diced tomatoes, mango, black beans, and guac.

I could probably eat this everyday and be happy.

I could also eat these chocolate oat pancakes everyday, too:

Chocolate Oat Pancakes

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 c oats
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 c unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 3 T plain greek yogurt

Here’s what you do:

  1. Beat all the ingredients together. The key is to BEAT them. Beat them REAL GOOD. (there’s egg whites in there, y’all)
  2. Spray a griddle and divide batter into 4 pancakes. The end.

I topped mine with sunflower seed frosting (a mixture of my homemade sunflower seed butter and almond milk, heated in the microwave and stirred well) and some chia seeds. With a side of blueberries.

Yesterday’s workout was 40 minutes of spin. The gym was PACKED but I managed to snag a bike. A crappy bike. The seat collapsed halfway through the ride. At least I was in 2nd position when it happened, or that could have been AWKWARD (or a reat awk spot story for Athena’s blog)

Today’s workout was Workout B from BBB and it was killer- a real upper body blaster! I was super pumped throughout the workout though because I wore my brand new Lululemon top! Oh, and 30 minutes of speed work on the treadmill. Not too shabby.

Oh, and in regards to my EXCITING news from yesterday…I have decided this will be my life career:
