The Border Between Habits and Routines

Posted Sep 05 2012 8:49pm
Since the theme of WIAW is “Fall into good habits” I figured I may as well talk about some of the habits that I have formed recently. Although I can’t guarantee they are necessarily good habits, nor can I can guarantee that they are the true definition as they are somewhere on the border between habits and routines.

To start off with breakfast, I am getting into the habit of making unsuccessful pancakes when I attempt pancake making on a weekday…

Yet I have gotten into the habit of successful pancakes when I attempt pancake making on a weekend. As a side note: I think there should be a verb for pancake making. Maybe panamaking?

So here is that pancake recipe using coconut flour I talked about on my Monday post :


Cocoa-Coconut Pancakes Makes 1 serving (5 pancakes)

  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp protein powder *
  • 2 tbsp Teff Flour
  • 1/4 cup eggwhites
  • 1/2 cup liquid **
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • dash of salt
  • Extract ***

*I used 1 tbsp unsweetened whey, and 1 tbsp vanilla vegan proteins
**I used half almond milk, and half cold brewed coconut tea (couldn’t taste the mint)
***I used Capella Boston Cream Pie Flavour Drops

  1. Cook like a regular pancake (surprised?)
  2. Note: I like my pancakes cold, so I stick them in the freezer for a few minutes before eating

Let’s get back to those habits. I am getting into the habit of successfully eating mini baguettes the perfect way while walking.

Not only have I formed the habit of eating a mini baguette on the way to work (not every day mind you), I have also gotten into the habit of eating my lunch on a stroll. I can’t sit at a desk for 9.5 hours without a meander!

On the other hand one this that is not becoming habit, but more of a rare “to heck with it” moments: onion dip. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE onion dip, but onions give me some crazy digestive pain, so three hours after the snack I am not a happy camper (it was delicious though).


What types of habits have you formed recently? What type of routines have you formed recently? Do you ever have something you know will upset your stomach?
