Hey all! How was your weekend? To me, no weekend is complete with out some Powercakes!

Gotta love being home on a Sunday morning to be there for Papacakes famous breakfasts. I swear that is where I learned all of my breakfast food making skills. AKA – old bay & dill on eggs all day every day…with exception of the above picture.

I was in the sweet breakfast mood.

Buckwheat Powercakes made with APS Vanilla Chai Veggie Protein Powder, bananas, buckwheat flour, & eggs topped with grass fed butter & 100% pure maple syrup.

I really have to get my Dad to write down recipes because in our family, we tend to bake like we cook. We through things in and hope they work out – and his pancakes never disappoint! This means I will definitely need to watch him next time to get this recipe!

Side of dippy eggs because I love me some yolks.

What is your favorite weekend breakfast?

I was fueled up this morning for some conditioning which consisted of

4 Rounds of 200m Row + 15 Push Press followed by some Leg Plank Kicks for today’s Power Plates Challenge!


How To:

  • Start in a plank position.
  • Drive one knee in on the plate.
  • Take leg back out & kick up that leg as you contract your glute.
  • Make sure to keep the core tight as you use your whole body (especially legs & low back) to initiate the movement.
  • Repeat 10-15 or 20 reps on one leg & then repeat on the other side!
  • Looking for a challenge? Try it on your elbows!
  • Holy moly, these things get tough when you drop it low.
  • The movement will be smaller so don’t worry – totally fine! Definitely a challenge but you can do it!.
Can we talk about thoughts of the day?
This morning I had a huge meeting with some peeps on a Google Hangout and I am feeling very blessed to be supported by such positive people. It’s true – surround yourself with others who lift you up and you do the same to them is truly a blessing.
I am taking some next steps towards something that will not only help others but truly take my passion to my business. I cannot wait to share and I promise to keep you up to date – working to have things ready to go by April so keep those eyes out!! WOO!
These past few years have been quite a roller coaster trying to find my direction in life. Each day is something new & different but I now feel like I am so on track & everyday I wake up excited to move forward. You all help with my motivation so thank you!
Keep up your amazing work & have a great start to your week!
Be true to you,
xo Kasey

    My favorite weekend breakfast lately has been different varieties of oats-n-eggs bowls. I can’t wait to hear what you’re up to next! I’m slowly but surely finding a direction in life that is a bit different from what I ever expected. It’s a journey.

      AH oats and egg bowls sound amazing!! And yes I think life is such a journey and it’s alwayssss changing but we both follow our passions and that’s what makes it so enjoyable!

    Kasey, thank you for sharing! Do you find that you like the APS veggie protein as much or more than Vega Sport or Vega One. I am looking for another veggie protein to try as I need to stay away from milk products right now due to sensitivities. Any others you could suggest would be great!

    • Kasey says:

      Hi Andrea! I actually like them both! I’m always switching things up so I’ve been able to try a few different ones and those are my top two for sure!

    I love eggs any day of the week but my other favorites are pancakes and bacon!!!

  5. Hmm banana pancakes are my favorite! Never really made them at home, I wonder what they taste like with whole wheat. Add some bacon and and a glass of milk and i’m in heaven haha!
