2 eggs (free-range, vegetarian fed)
4 tbsp Shaklee Instant Protein Soy (this adds 32g protein and no carbs!)
1 cup organic vanilla soy milk

1 tsp organic vanilla extract

1. Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

2. Heat a large skillet to 350 degrees.

3. Grease the skillet with whatever you like to use.
