Brian Tanzer, MS, CNS, Nutritionist and Product Formulator for the Vitamin Shoppe explains that, “for those looking to increase lean muscle mass, protein plays a vital role in the growth and repair of lean muscle tissue when combined with resistance training. In addition to common food sources (beef, chicken, fish, eggs, milk, etc.), protein-infused foods can be a convenient way to meet daily nutrition needs.” Adding protein to your diet also helps keep you satisfied! The Vitamin Shoppe’s new Protein Pantry features a specially curated assortment of 40 products.
These protein-filled pancakes are very easy-to-make. You simply measure out 1/2 cup of the dry mix and whisk it with a 1/4 cup of cold water. You don't add eggs, milk or anything else. Preheat your griddle to 325 degrees and pour your batter in to make two 6" around pancakes. Cook until golden on one side, flip-over and repeat. These pancakes are a little bit more denser than what I'm used to but wow...they really pack a delicious flavor!!!
