Crush snacks.

Crush snacks.

It’s human nature to make things more complicated than they are. When it comes to food, sometimes simple tastes better, and it’s always easier for busy Rebels on the go. We share a little photo here of the least fancy snack in town, just to remind us that eating clean and getting the energy and recovery that we need doesn’t need to cost us hours of food-prepping around the clock. As any Revkor Bandit (instructor) what’s in their back and odds are you’ll find a chicken breast in a baggie, a stash of veggies and nuts, and seriously hot coffee in hand. Keep it simple crew - let’s get back to loving food whole!  Keeping food easy means we’re far better set up for serious crushing, anyway....

Erin’s Power Pancakes

Ange and I are both obsessed with having a serious breakfast, and if it involves real maple syrup - how can the rest of the day not be awesome? Ange’s hardcore, 2-ingredient Power Pancake recipe is here, and here’s my personal fave: MAKE IT HAPPEN: In a blender: One banana - ripe or not, doesn’t matter 1/3 cup rolled oats 1 egg 1.4 tsp baking powder Vanilla Dash sea salt Fry up in little rounds and serve with maple syrup.  I like putting my maple syrup on the side in a little dish and dipping, I feel like I get more maple flavour-action and need less of the sweet stuff.  Serve with fruit or veggies…greens for breakfast is for serious superheroes! WABAM....

Gently place it on the cookie sheet. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-11 minutes. Baking times will vary from oven to oven. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before moving from the pan. The outside should be dried out slightly and the inside should be soft and chewy.
