Studies have shown that those who consume whey protein within 30min after a workout, they have more lean muscle. More lean muscle = more calories being burned. Here’s my post workout shake.

Topped with 1/4 cup fiber one cereal (optional)

PUMPKIN PROTEIN PANCAKES! I admit it! I have a pumpkin addiction, but who doesn’t.
I took the pumpkin mini-cake recipe I had and tried it out as a pancake. It makes 3 decent size pancakes for under 100 calories!
Make sure to whip the egg whites FIRST and real good so they pancakes come out nice and fluffy! Mix other ingredients in, add milk as needed to get the right consistency and just cook like regular pancakes.

I made a protein syrup like to top it with, i just took a little bit of protein powder and cinnamon, mixed it with some warm water until the consistency was thin and delicious. (this of course will add just a few calories, but not that much!)
