#RECIPEFRIDAY: Simple & Savoury Protein Oat Cake!

The joys of savouring

Something I've been enjoying a lot of as late.

Not always literally though hehe

You know...

The more time I take to sit back, relax and allow life to enter (my entire being)...

The more I am able to savour everything around me on much deeper, personal level! (One that has enabled me to get a taste of life in a whole different kind of way!)

As I've been sharing with you my experiences in my efforts to slow down over the past month or so...

Every day that's passed since the beginning of it all...

Has been an opportunity for me to sip back (and enjoy) the moments that have presented themselves, in their entirety. (Moments planned, unplanned, known and unknown.)

Cherishing the in-between moments with Jeff Goins.
One gulp at a time ;)

And that would include...

The painFUl (but oh so good) massages I've been treating my body legs to! (With all of the running I've been doing lately, my legs, but mostly my calves, have really needed it. Foam rolling and stretching haven't been enough. My calves are tight, FUll of knots, and they need some unknotting! <---I don't think that's a word lol)

My 10k run from the other day :)

No doubt...

I know I will be savouring a few more massages in the near FUture!


If there's one thing this challenge has taught me it's that...

I don't need to rush myself through life.

I need to allow whatever that is to come my way to....

Make its way at its own pace.

It's not about...

How quickly I can get myself from one place to the next! (The goal is not to go as fast as I can. The goal is to learn from the path I have taken (and will end up taking). It also reinforces my need to be patient with myself and in life no matter how long it takes me to get to where I want to go (or where I'm destined to get to!). I will get there. I just need to embrace the journey.) 

Savouring the beauty in what lies ahead.


So on the topic of savouring...

Let's get on with the recipe I want to share with you in this edition of...


This is something I randomly threw together (which tends to be how I cook on most days) which....

Turned out to be really yummy savoury! (Strange but good Laura?)

  1. Oh deep tissue massages, how I love thee! It hurts so bad to feel so good. :) It's funny but I never liked fried eggs for the longest time. Now I want to put it on everything. Looks great!

  2. Looks delish! I need to buy egg whites in bulk to make it easier!

  3. I'm a painful massage fan too - I don't understand the "fluffy" ones. :) And those pancakes with the yolkporn - looks like heaven!

  4. Looks yummy! And it's so pretty on the plate lol! LOVE deep tissue massages! They will really help your sore and tight legs!

  5. Looks yummy. I do love a runny yolk on top of a yummy pancake. Delish.

  6. MMMMMM...oat cake. I might have to use this to replace my post run pancakes.
    I am a HUGE advocate of massage. I go once a month, sometimes twice depending on my mileage / training. Yeah it hurts but I always feel so much better for it after! I'm going to be linking up with you for Recipe Friday today. I just have to finish my post....I've been too busy reading, ha ha. :)

  7. Oh a good deep tissue massage hurts so good! I'm in need of one :-) This oat cake looks delicious!

  8. oh i need a massage. BAD. I will savor that soon i hope

  9. I love how the take the sweet and make it savory! I'll have to try this. Would be great to make a bunch for the work week.

  10. Echoing Laura- I love it. Make them sweet into savory- I love the idea of a simple oatcake- especially with vegemite on top ;)

  11. Love your posts & how they all include the thoughts of taking it in & slowing down to savor the moment when you can & making time to do that otherwise we would not! ;)

    LOVE the recipe!

  12. Yum these look delicious as always!! I posted a recipe today, adding it now and will add your link up button too!

  13. I love foam rolling and massages! I'm really loving your white Nike+ watch.

  14. Yummy recipe!! I'm experimenting with adding eggs back into my diet and this is a perfect recipe to start with!

    I was just thinking about getting a massage yesterday. My calves and left hip need serious unknotting <------ it's a word now :)

  15. This recipe is awesome because I love pancakes and actually just bought some Quarter Oatmeal Pancake Mix (it’s new and sounds great!).
    I love adding in flax seed or chia seeds and nuts for the healthy fats and extra fiber.
    I am going to try this recipe.. thanks for sharing!
