Hello beauts! It’s been far too long since I posted on here 😱 apologies for that!
I’ve been getting lots of requests about the protein pancakes I’ve been posting about on my Instagram so I thought I’d whip up a post on here to share the recipe with you all!
1 scoop of protein powder
10g plain flour
60-70ml of milk
1 egg/egg replacer/ 1 chia egg
Dash of cinnamon
Blend all the ingredients (except the toppings) in a blender until smooth.
Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium heat then pour a little of the mixture into the pan. Let it cook until small bubbles start to form on the top of the pancake then carefully flip and cook on the other side for a further minute or two or until slightly browned.
I whack mine in the microwave for 30 secs once they’ve all cooked as the first couple are a little cold by the time I’ve cooked them all.
Add your toppings and devour!

Valentine’s Day was never something I use to bother with but last year I got truly pampered by my boyfriend and decided that actually, Valentine’s is pretty awesome when a spa and fancy restaurant is involved.
It also means that spring is on its way which means one step closer to summer!
Another reason I love Valentine’s? Chocolate. My favourite thing. Now that I’m all healthy and what not I thought I’d try my best to make healthy versions of some Valentine’s treats you might like to share with your loved one. Some of them are kinda healthy but I’d still recommend eating them only in moderation.
Obviously these recipes were sooo dull to create and I definitely didn’t lick the bowl at all. Not once. Girl guides honour. Ahem. Anyhoo lets get to it!
Lazy Sunday mornings are perfect for pancake making. It’s become a little ritual between my boyfriend and me to have pancakes almost every Sunday. In fairness, we’d both happily eat them every morning if we had the time.
Although weekends are perfect for letting go a little and eating something less healthy, treating the entire weekend like that will have a negative impact on your health and (if you have them), weight loss goals.
So, I have pinched this recipe from My Fitness Pal and created my own healthy topping.
These pancakes are pretty good- they aren’t like standard pancakes, slightly heavier but still good and a lot more filling in my opinion.
They are almost sugar free; I managed to make 9 pancakes altogether-with 1tbsp of sugar in total, per pancake thats pretty much only a tiny smidge of sugar. You could also replace the butter with vegan butter and make it dairy free.
1.1 ounces all-purpose flour (1/4 cup)
1 cup oats
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup non dairy milk
2 tablespoons vegan butter, melted
1 large egg (use Orgran egg replacer
Oil/butter for pan
For the Compote
1/2 cup natural yoghurt almond/coconut/soy
1/2 frozen berries
1/2 small banana
Preheat oven to 150 degrees c
Combine the first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.
Combine milk, butter, and egg in a small bowl. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.
Heat a nonstick griddle over medium heat (can use frying pan). Coat pan with oil/butter. Spoon about
2 1/2 tablespoons batter per pancake onto griddle. Turn pancakes over when tops are covered with bubbles; cook until bottoms are lightly browned.
I’m really excited to share with you a recent interview I had with my local newspaper with regards to some selfies I posted on my social media. Now for those of you who follow me on Instagram you’ve probably seen one or two of these pictures.
If you don’t follow me on Instagram (well for starters you should! Insta name: katyhemfit go follow me now, you wont regret it 😀 ) you can see the pictures below.
So why do I post pictures of my cellulite, bloated stomach and fat for the whole world to see?
I have a great feeling about 2016 and know it’s going to be a good one. I have lots of goals and things I know I’m going to achieve, but not without a solid plan.
I’m going to be having a look back at one of my goals from last year and talking you through how to make this year, your best yet!
The start of a new year is a great opportunity to consider what you want to achieve that year and how you’re going to do it.
Last year I decided I wanted to cut back on my intake of meat and dairy and wouldn’t you know it…6 months into 2015 and I went vegan (and haven’t looked back since). I never imagined I’d go completely vegan and at the start of 2015 would have laughed if you’d told me I’d be vegan in a year.
I also intended on spending more time practicing yoga but unfortunately that one got put on the back burner (I currently have the back pain to remind my why I shouldn’t have let that happen!).
Anyway it’s easy to say we are going to do something but, as we all know, most people’s NY’s resolutions don’t last more than a couple of days! Make this year, your year and stick to your goals by following my top tips:
Morning lovelies! So sorry I’ve been a little absent on here recently (if you follow me on snapchat and Insta you’ll know I’ve been super busy starting my personal training business so haven’t had a lot of time for my blog) but that’s all changing in 2016! So get ready for more YouTube vids and articles on here!
So- I hope you all had a lovely Christmas Day- I enjoyed my first vegan Christmas and, despite forgetting to defrost my nut roast and only realising AFTER all the other food was ready to eat (thus resulting in no nut roast for me) I still had a delish, lovely day and didn’t miss meat at all!
I got up early today and just needed to sweat it all out so here’s a great little post Christmas Day workout for you to try:
The korma is probably my favourite curry. No scratch that, it IS my favourite curry. I don’t even know why I entertained the idea that there might be another contender. There isn’t. It’s korma all the way. I love the creamy coco nutty-ness of it and I’m not a huge fan of super spicy foods so the korma is perfect for mild curry lovers.
This recipe is pretty easy and reheats well. There’s a load of ingredients I haven’t included but feel free to go wild and add white or sweet potatoes, any other type of bean and veg like broccoli, cauliflower, kale etc.
