Birthday Breakfast

January 2, 2010

Thank you so much for all of your birthday wishes via Facebook, email, comments, and text messages. I feel so loved and celebrated with a yummy breakfast…


Protein pancakes (with whipped egg whites and 1/4 cup wheat bran added to batter) topped with dark chocolate and peppermint protein ice-cream. The plan was to stick a birthday candle in them, but I couldn’t find one. So, we lit a house candle and CD sang Happy Birthday to me. It was very sweet…until I finally told him to stop. Sorry CD, but my ice-cream was melting! ;)


My breakfast scarf of choice arrived in my mailbox on New Year’s Eve from my favorite yogini. Thanks Polly! I love it.

I’ve got a bit of a sore throat (that ice-cream was just what I needed!), and I feel like I’m getting a cold. Just hoping and praying it’s not the flu. The plan for today is to take it easy. My mom is taking me to the movies (sweet CD bought us tickets), and then my hubby is making me dinner. I need to come up with some sort of birthday cake. Please check back tomorrow to read all about my creation. I will also be posting about an exciting experiment I’m doing for the month of January. So, see you tomorrow and thanks again for making my day so special.

    Happy Birthday! :)

    Your breakfast looks delicious! I never would have thought about having ice cream with my pancakes but now that I think of it, it seems like such a genius idea.

    happy birthday beautiful Heather!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! love youuu!

  12. January 2, 2010 11:31 am

    Hi Heather! Happy Birthday!! :) I totally thought you were in your early 20’s…. you have such a youthful face! (Must be all that healthy food you eat and yoga you do!)

    Not that 34 isn’t youthful… it totally is. (I realized that could have come out sounding wrong!! I just mean to say that you look a decade younger than you are! I’ll be hitting 37 next month…. but luckily I still feel 20!)

    Anyway, bday wishes to a beautiful lady, inside and out!

  13. January 2, 2010 11:48 am

    I’m praying it’s not the flu too! I just got over that, and ended up with pneumonia.

    Happy Birthday HEAB! <3 jess

  14. January 2, 2010 11:49 am

    Great bday breakfast. Feel better!

    I still need to make your famous protein ice cream. I posted some pancakes on my blog and gave you a shout out of course!


  15. January 2, 2010 12:07 pm

    Happy Birthday!!!!!! I hope you have an amazing and most fabulous day!

    (I hope you feel better too!)

  16. January 2, 2010 12:13 pm

    Happy b-day, Heather!

    If you are coming down with a flu or a cold, do yourself a favor and get to a healthfood store somewhere and get a Oregano and Olive Leaf oil extract, take 30 drops 5 times a day until you get over it. Oregano and Olive leaf oil kill germs on contact and will help you get over whatever you are fighting quickly. I do it all the time when I am around someone who is sick or when I feel I might be coming down with something.

  17. January 2, 2010 12:17 pm

    Happy Birthday, beautiful HEABS!

    Sounds like a perfect day! Hope you fight off whatever CD might have tried to give ya! He’s just too generous! :)

  18. January 2, 2010 12:27 pm

    Happy Birthday Heather! I love that you’re you on your blog, no holds barred. I will also be trying your protein pancakes soon, they look absolutely delish! Enjoy your day!
