Strawberry Protein Pancakes

Recently I had a discussion about my blog and why it was called "A Fine Balance". I tried to articulate how it was a journey - a personal journey on finding the balance in my own life, but that it was peppered with three of the things I adore Fashion, Fitness and Food. With a quick look at past posts however, it was suggested that the blog had become more fashion oriented and had let go of the two other aspects that are equally as important. 

A suggestion was made to change the name of the blog but I am on the fence. While I am open to the idea of moving the blog forward in a new direction, I also love where "A Fine Balance" has brought me. In an effort to bring the blog back to an equilibrium I am going to try and ensure that there is a balance between all three aspects. And no time like the present to get back at it. 

Today's post features one of my favourite morning eats: Strawberry Protein Pancakes
 You will need:
1/3 Cup Oats
1 scoop Protein Powder (I used Beverly Cookies and Cream)
2 packets Stevia
1/3 cup Egg Whites
1 tbsp Ground flax
6 Strawberries
Cinnamon or Pumpkin Spice to taste
Blender (my daily Hamilton Beach Blender is available for $20.00 at Wal-Mart)
Note: Caloric content minus the ground flax and this may be off by a bit.
Protein Carbs Fat Calories

Don't mind the mess on the counter!
So what if they're not circular? they taste just as yummy
What are your thoughts on a re-branding of the blog? Do you think A Fine Balance represents itself well? Looking forward to your thoughts!

  2. Mmmm ... Pancakes.
    Honestly, I love the name of your  blog.  I think it defines you.  If you like it, then keep it! :)

  3. Yum! It's your blog, so your decision. I know your blog is mostly fashion-related, but you do talk about fitness occasionally. If you want to change it to be purely about fashion then go ahead!

  4. I think the name is fine just the way it is.. but if you want to change it its your decision! 
    Yummy recipe!

  5. Its really up to you! If you love the name, want to talk about all food, fitness, and fashion, and it works; keep it. Just do what you love, call it what you want, and go for it. :D

  6. Its such a tough call! 
    I still want to talk about all three...but I do see where the comment came from :)

  7. That's an interesting question. I don't know that a rebranding is in order. It could help to remind you that perhaps your attention in life has shifted and that things are "out of balance"? I suppose it's really down to what you're comfortable talking about on the blog and where you want your focus to be.

  8. DELICIOUS! I'm all about food, so I'm happy to see more about it, but really, it's just about whatever feels right for you! :) Can't wait to see what you decide.

  9. I like the recipe. 
    I'm not someone for re-branding a blog. One can lose a lot of readers for doing this but can also gain on the other hand.
    Good luck with your decision.

  14. I say stick to your name. It makes sense whether you go more fashion or whether you do other things. To me, it's all 'a fine balance'! I've thought of changing my blog name as well since people seem to think it's about babies but I think I'll stick with the name.  Unless I win the lottery, I'll always have a little budget so.... :)

  15. This looks delicious and nutritious - B especially would love them and i think his protein powder is C&C flavoured. I would have keep a few strawberries to have on top :) Also, smiling at your Food and Drink magazine in the background...

  16. These definitely don't sound like any pancakes I've ever made, but I have to say, the pink colour has me sold :)

    As for the name of your blog, don't change it. A Fine Balance is a name you've become known for, and it is your name, so you get to decide what it means - that can evolve and change as time goes on, the same way you evolve and change as you go through new phases in your life.

    xox,
    Cee
