Low Calorie Gluten Free Protein Batter! For Muffins/Cakes/Donuts/Pancakes!

 I'm always looking for a cakey protein batter for donuts, muffins, pancakes, etc, but a lot of the time, protein recipes just turn out rubbery and dry! BUTTTTT not this batter! Finally nailed it! Maybe it's because I used the Quest Protein Powder which is a blend of different proteins!

I'm Pretty Fit! & Garbanzo Bean/Chickpea Blondies Recipe!

This month I got the chance to try the Resolution Box from Im Pretty Fit!

What it basically is is a monthly fitness box subscription where each month there's a different themed pack for your fitness lifestyle! Whether it be a Resolution pack for getting back on track, or a Spring Protein packs, Fall themed packs, and more! You can buy 1 pack OR buy a subscription to get a box monthly.

This is my first ever subscription box type of package, and what I loved about it was that you can get to try a little bit of EVERYTHING. Instead of going out there and buying a huge box of supplements or snacks, and ending up not liking them and then wasting your money. With this, you get to sample everything, before you go out and buy them!

My favorites from this Resolution Box so far are the Egg White Chips and the ProCakes Protein Pancake Mix! YUHMMMM. Still have yet to try the About time protein samples, but I had them a few years ago and I remember them being super natural and tasty :)

Also, I received a tub of their PrettyFit Greens, which is like a tub of wonderful superfood GOODNESS. I threw in a scoop into my protein smoothie to get all the benefits:
  • Increases Energy
  • Supports Healthy Digestion 
  • Helps Optimize Overall Health
  • Contains Powerful Antioxidants 
  • Vegan Friendly, Non-GMO Formula 
  • No Artificial Flavors, Colors, Sweeteners, or Preservatives

See me making the pancakes and shake here on youtube!
Overall, I think subscription boxes are so cool! I know they have so many out there, not just for fitness either! They have beauty boxes, pet boxes for your dogs or cats, nature boxes, etc etc! I love that you can get a sampling of everything, and the price isn't too shabby either ;) If you do decide to purchase a subscription, or just a box to try it out one time, use the discounts below to save some money!
