Default packet Question from Newbie

Hi Everyone!

This morning, I attempted to make the chocolate pancake. it was a burnt mess, stuck to my pan, and was inedible.

i made myself 2 egg whites instead.

do i still need to have a 3rd packet today, since i had the 2 egg whites for breakfast? i have extra packets, but not sure if i should just sub out the packet for the 2 egg whites i ate.

thanks!!

I would have another packet. It will help keep you full today. Keep on track with them...2 egg whites wouldn't fill me up at all... they (2) are counted as a freebie anyway... Just my 2cents.

I would agree with fourstubbs. I usually have an extra egg white every day, but two would not affect you at all. they are high is protein, which is what you want.
I like to add an egg white to my pudding muffins for my evening snack.

This is the exact reason I bought myself a new non-stick pan. My first burnt/goop was lesson enough that these things are fussy to cook with. My "family" pans were also too big. I see some people have small "rings" to put in the bottom of pans... I may try that too... but it seems stores have lots of "sales" on right now as students head back to school so spending the price of 2 packs to get a good small pan will save you throwing any more away!

I got the rings...they are for making English Muffins. Love them

I spray my pans with PAM (I also have good NEW pans...small ones), and the rings. And I start the heat on high until I put the mixtures in the pan, and then turn to low, and cook for anywhere from 5 - 10 minutes. Low heat works well.

I have not done much in the microwave, but I know many people here use it.
Think Non stick pans and PAM

I have NEVER had success with making it into a pancake. I really do not know what I do wrong. I always make it into a cake in the microwave. When you figure it out, please post your secret!

Like others have said - DEFINITELY make sure to get in your extra packet. Two egg whites only have ~8g protein (and are usually counted as "free" anyways), where an IP packet typically has ~18g of protein. You really need to make sure you keep up the protein in particular to keep your lean mass well fueled.

I've never used the chocolate pancake mix (was always satisfied with unrestricted Crispy Cereal pancakes) - but I've heard others say they never had success with it as a pancake, just as a muffin.
