Over the years I’ve written online dating profiles for a few friends of mine.
Each time I’ve done it, I’ve wondered what I would write if I had to create one for myself.
This probably sums it up:
I am a 25-year-old engineer by day, circus aerialist by night, and occasional life of the meticulously-planned and over-catered party (but frequent no-show to stay in bed reading). I miss every movie reference and abandon every tv show episode within ten minutes to bake cookies. I spend an unreasonable amount of time thinking about what my next six-course meal will be while simultaneously trying to develop six-pack abs. I fall in love at least three times a day and find the greatest happiness in the smallest acts of kindness.
Protein Pancakes (paleo, gluten free)
two bananas (pick ones on the riper side)
one scoop of your favourite protein powder (I used Vega french vanilla)
Mash bananas in a bowl, and beat in protein powder and egg until well mixed.
Grease and heat a cast-iron skillet or frying pan over medium heat.
I make my pancakes two at a time using half a cup of batter each. Cook for about 4-5 minutes on one side (or until the edges are drying and the middle is starting to bubble) and flip, cooking until golden brown on both sides (this took me about 3-4 more minutes on the second side). These don’t flip well, but give it your best shot.
I topped mine with a ridiculous amount of fruit and berries and whipped cream, because that’s how I roll.
