Today is the day! and Pumpkin Rolls!

by Eva @ Committed2Nutrition on October 26, 2012

Am I really getting around to writing two blog posts this week? I am up early this Friday morning so I am taking advantage of some time.

As you are all probably sick of hearing, today is my ZUMBA MASTER CLASS with my good friends & other Zumba Instructors, Anna and Alejandra.

We have been working super hard on this since end of August, and it’s all for a good cause as 100% of the proceeds are going to Breast Cancer Research. We have a lot of really cool sponsors – Robek’s, Star 99.9, Propel Fitness Water, and some other local places. Thank you, Everyone! I am sure I will over load you all with pictures next week as we have a professional photographer capturing the event. I am just so excited. And so excited that I was up way too early this morning.

But hey – HAPPY FRIDAY!

Before I dive into a yummy pumpkin roll recipe, here is a sneak peak of our outfits: {you can laugh, it’s okay}

I made up the name that we are the “Zumba Breast Cancer Elves” – haha, I seriously crack myself up. The second I put on those socks I felt like an elf, or someone going to CrossFit, and I don’t do CrossFit (maybe one day).

Ok so I made something delicious last weekend I have been dying to post:

PUMPKIN ROLLS

I followed this recipe almost exactly from Fox – except the major difference was I used to Truvia Baking Blend instead of the stevia, and I forgot to use powdered sugar for the frosting. So click that link to see it.

I’ll be honest, I SUCK at presentation and these look terrible when you compare them to the photo in the recipe link. But TASTE? SO-FREAKIN-GOOD!! So, please, do me a favor, ignore the amazing photo in the recipe, and pretend mine really look as good, because I swear they taste delicious!

Are we sick of pumpkin yet? NOT IN THIS HOUSE!

Mine really look so bad, haha, I almost can’t even believe I am posting pics. Whatever.

I think the second time around I’ll master the technique. Practice always helps, ya know?

Last but not least, I was on a cooking roll (ha) last Saturday morning and made finally a perfect protein pancake before I headed to Zumba:

It was so easy – about 1/2 cup egg whites, 1.5 scoops sun warrior vanilla protein, lots of cinnamon, pinch of xanathan gum, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, and A LOT of stevia, because god knows I need some sweetness in these things.

I mixed all the ingredients together, and threw on a pan with coconut oil.

boomtown.

Perfect pre-Zumba class meal.

And see, practice makes perfect, because I have been doing “pancakes” for a few months now and they look terrible. FINALLY I get a good-looking one. I was proud (ha-ha).

Ok I am off to get ready for work and then count down the minutes to the ZUMBA BREAST CANCER MASTER CLASS!!!

Happy Friday, Everyone!!
