Recipe for Weight-loss Success

It's February 22. How are those resolutions coming along?

Even if you haven't achieved your goal weight in the last seven weeks, no need to abandon those dreams of smaller jeans. Maybe it's just time to tweak your plan.

That's assuming of course that you had a plan.

Whether you need to make some small adjustments to continue with the success you've had already, or carry out a complete overhaul, Fauquier Health's Wellness Center can help.

The Wellness Center, at 419 Holiday Court in Warrenton, Suite 200, is not just another gym. The equipment and classes are great; it's a gorgeous facility. But it's the staff -- exercise physiologists, a nutritionist, diabetes educators and more -- who can individualize your experience and make this the year you meet your health goals.

The Wellness Center is running a special right now -- those visiting for the first time can get two weeks free to try out all the center has to offer. Call 540-316-2640 for details.

And as an additional bonus, I am going to share with you a recipe for high-protein pancakes you can try for a filling morning breakfast. Super quick, easy and very tasty. (I came across this recipe at http://www.cutthefatpodcast.com/, and have made them several times myself.)

1 egg (seperated in yolk and white)
1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
coconut oil or spray oil

Take the ingredients (except the oil and egg white) and throw in a blender to take some of the lumps out. You can add a little water to smooth it out. Whip the egg white and fold it into the batter. (This makes the pancakes nice and fluffy.) Pour on a griddle with a little oil so they don't stick, and flip when brown. This recipe makes about four pancakes, which are delicious with a little peanut butter spread on them, or some fruit-only spread.

It's a funny combination of ingredients, but the results are great. I promise, they'll stick with you until lunch.
