Pancake day is fast approaching, I hope you are excited? Macro Meals HQ is buzzing, we are that excited we are launching a protein packed pancake just for pancake day.
Our subscription users have been lucky enough to try the mouth watering pancakes this week, the guilt free flavours are mouth watering.
Why do we celebrate pancake day?
Pancake day, also known as Shrove Tuesday, is the feast day immediately before ash Wednesday which marks the start of the 40 days of lent that lead up to Easter.
Because its date is determined by that of Easter Sunday, Pancake Day really is a moveable feast. Therefore, this year’s pancake day falls on Tuesday the 5th of February.
Lent is traditionally a time to give things up, and on Shrove Tuesday, Christians went to confession and were ‘shriven’ (absolved of their sins), which is where the name ‘Shrove’ Tuesday comes from.
Christians had to give up certain foods for lent, they couldn’t just throw them away. So shrove Tuesday was held so christians could eat up all the foods that wouldn’t last the 40 days of lent without going off.
Pancakes became associated with the day as making them could use up all the eggs, fats and milk in the house with just the addition of flour.
We have all had an experience of food guilt, you can’t enjoy a sweet treat because you are worried you will ruin your progress and take a backward step.
It will soon be pancake day and everyone should enjoy at least one, you need be sensible with your calories and to not be afraid to treat yourself.
Here is a great guilt free recipe for you to try:
- 2 eggs
- 2 scoops of whey protein
- 6 Tablespoons Water or Almond milk
- Cooking spray, butter, or coconut oil for greasing the pan
- Add 15 grams of dark chocolate chips to get those taste buds tingling
