Fitness friendly & clean blueberry loaf!

Clean blueberry loaf

In an earlier post about whey protein powder, I mentioned that one thing I love about a GOOD QUALITY (<—- important!) whey protein supplement is that I am able to enjoy sweet treats – baked goods included – without the repercussions of sugar and other unhealthy additives.

I found a recipe and made some tweaks and it is OH SO GOOD – for just 250 calories. High in protein – refined sugar and additive free! 

Here’s what you do!

1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees C (350 degrees F)

2. Take 30 grams of gluten free or regular oats and blend until fine.

3.  Combine the following in a bowl:

  • 30 grams of blended oats
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 50 grams of blueberries
  • 15 grams of vanilla flavored whey protein powder (I used Foodin’s natural vanilla whey)
  • 1 t of all natural vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon and stevia to your liking

4. Place mixture in lightly coated loaf pan (a light brushing of coconut oil works great) and bake for 30-40 min.

5. Remove and eat!

You can slice it up and serve it with coffee for guests or eat the entire thing yourself! Nom nom!

Macros: 250 calories, 30 g protein, 23 g carbs, and 3 g fat

Clean as a whistle!

It’s also a PERFECT treat when you are having cravings for something that’s not so good for you. :-)

Blessings and much love!

High protein, strawberry & vanilla chia pudding!

shutterstock_187254806_cropped

Want an YUMMY, EASY, and POWER PACKED BREAKFAST?

All I can say is that I was finally craving something a bit different than my usual oats for breakfast.

For a while now I started seeing a ton of chia pudding posts on the internet and wondered, these look amazing – but how can I make it more fitness friendly?

And I came up with something simple, easy and delicious! It’s clean as a whistle, high in protein, refined sugar and additive free! 

If you are looking for an easy, power-packed, grab and go breakfast – you gotta try this!

1) Take the following ingredients and combine in a bowl:

  • 30 grams of chia seeds
  • 15 grams of gluten free or regular oats (oats have a trace amount of gluten)
  • 100 grams of rice milk (works with almond milk too!)
  • 17 grams of vanilla flavored whey protein powder (I used Foodin’s – it’s GMO free and sweetened with stevia)
  • 2-3 T of water

2) Place in the fridge overnight or at least 4 hours.

3) Remove and top with 50 grams of strawberries (or berry of choice) and 5 grams of all natural peanut butter!

4) Stir the ooey, gooey yummy mess and eat it up!!!

Macros: 341 calories, 23 g or protein, 24 g of carbs and 15 grams of fat

Makes one very satisfying serving or two smaller snack sized ones!

By the way – chia seeds are great for many reasons! It’s an excellent source or protein, fiber and Omega-3 fatty acids! There is clearly a few reasons why the Mayans consumed so much chia! Boost your endurance and energy with chia.

With love & health,

Ginger

This rice protein powder truly is amazing. I am a fanatic about protein powders and am always on the look out for the best. IMO, this is the best rice protein powder out there – kicks Sunwarrior’s booty, IMO. Perhaps it’s because it’s infused with the all powerful MCT (medium chain triglycerides).

Creamy Vanilla Baked Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal!

Vanilla oatmeal!

Creamy Vanilla Baked Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal!

Okay so I had a minor crisis a few nights ago.

I was preparing to bake my oatmeal for the next morning’s breakfast and realized that I had zero eggs! Rather than panic I chose to adapt. I substituted my egg whites with protein powder and the result was delicious.

Quick, easy, yummy and protein packed!

Combine the following in an oven-proof bowl:

  • 40 grams (1/2 cup) of oatmeal (regular or gluten free)*
  • 15 grams of protein powder (vanilla flavored, I used Foodin’s vanilla whey)
  • 55 grams of chopped apples
  • 1 cup of water (appx. 2.5 dl)
  • 1 t of baking powder (aluminum free)
  • Stevia to your liking
  • Cinnamon to your liking

*Although oatmeal contains a small amount of gluten, studies have shown that oatmeal is well tolerated by those with celiac disease.

Bake at 175 degrees C for 30 minutes. Eat immediately for a warm  treat or save for the morning!

Macros : 276 calories, 19 g of protein, 33 g of carbs, 3 g of fat.

It’s really good – sweetness without any refined sugars or additives. Au natural!

Oh – did you know that increased protein intake is important to fat loss and muscle retention? 

Enjoy!
