So this whole working out thing.

It hurts. Sometimes it hurts a lot.

About two weeks ago I started a DVD program that incorporates a lot of weight work. You may have caught my oh-my-word-I-wanna-cry whine on Facebook.

This coach don’t play, even with her short but effective exercise program.

Recovering from a hard workout means refueling with proteins and carbs. Throw in some BCAAs and I'm on the road to my next workout. Diet and exercise go together, right?

You know who I’m talking about.

I was in pain for the full first week and wasn’t sure why. Then I remembered that I wasn’t focusing enough on my recovery. Easy fix, though: I’ve got my recovery voodoo down to a science. Because, well, it IS science.

I’ve learned that I need both carbs and proteins to recover from those hard workouts. When I get the right amount of protein (approximately 30 grams after a workout) and some carbs, I do alright. For someone who is trying to slim down, building lean muscle with protein is the way to go.

How do I get my protein?

As a morning runner, I tend to recover and refuel with a big breakfast. When I’m away at a race, room service is my jam.

At home, I’ll make my favorites: Banana Protein Recovery Waffles.

You know, I don’t cook a lot, but I can make the heck outta breakfast foods!

These waffles are out of this world full of flavor and stuffed with protein. It’s like eating banana bread guilt free.

I’m also a believer in BCAAs as a recovery tool. If you aren’t familiar with these excellent amino acids, you might want to check them out.

The new and improved EAS® 100% Whey Protein Powder not only gives me 26 grams of protein in a scoop, but it also provides me with the BCAAs I know my body loves.

And I can pick it up when I’m at Walmart. Convenient!

Set the waffle mix aside and prep your waffle maker.

Coat with a non-stick spray (I use an olive oil cooking spray) and turn on the heat.

Once your waffle maker is ready, get cooking!

Pour in the mix being careful not to overfill the waffle maker.

Close the waffle lid and wait. And yes, your kitchen will smell like a little slice of heaven while this bakes.

When the waffles are done, top with your favorite fruit, nuts, whipped cream, syrup or Nutella.

Enjoy!

  1. Sounds yum! I use both chocolate & vanilla protein powders — depends on what I’m making.

    So did you hear? If everything goes right, I’ll be in Phoenix mid October to run the Craftclassic half (although it’s really Scottsdale).

  2. Brownies or protein balls are good. 🙂

    Suddenly everyone wants to know when I’m coming to their state! Hopefully you won’t be in Disney that weekend.

    I never thought to put protein powder into a recipe, Patty.
    I just use it in smoothies!

  4. Oh man! I haven’t had breakfast yet, and I can almost smell these after reading about them. I love the idea of putting protein powder in something other than a smoothie!
