HPLC Almond Butter Protein Cookies: 62g protein

Posted on September 16, 2014 By

This recipe destroys all other “protein cookie” recipes you’ll find online. Nearly all the fat in this comes from almonds, a healthy source of fat, and the almond flavor is intensified by the almond flour and almond milk. (Hit the links in the recipe if you don’t have any of these ingredients.) They’re fairly dry, so…


HPLC Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes: 57g protein

Posted on September 15, 2014 By

You may have seen “protein pancake” recipes online which are mostly flour or oats. They taste good, because they’re full of flour and oats, but they barely have enough protein to be worth making! Our protein pancakes absolutely destroy anything else you’ve seen online. They use PB2, which is a defatted peanut butter that’s great…

What is the easiest way to make protein shakes?

Posted on September 14, 2014 By

Protein shakes are a staple of a high-protein diet. While I like to make recipes with protein powder (both to avoid protein farts and to keep from getting sick of shakes) it’s still my go-to when I need more protein in my day but I don’t have much time. I’ve tried whisking, stirring, putting the…

Which Isopure flavors taste the best?

Posted on September 13, 2014 By

Over the past few months, I’ve been investigating Isopure protein. It contains zero carbs, since the whey protein used to make it is processed in such a way as to remove impurities. (Optimum Gold Standard whey contains 3 grams of carbohydrate for every 24 grams of protein, by comparison.) The downside of Isopure is that some of…


Which pea protein tastes the best?

Posted on September 11, 2014 By

I’ve bought and cooked with over a hundred different types of protein. Pea protein is great for baking, since it tends to absorb more water than whey protein. Here are my favorite pea proteins: Naturade’s pea protein is the best-tasting vanilla I’ve used. Artificial vanilla flavoring is hard to get right, but this is great. You…


What is the best tasting egg protein powder?

Posted on September 10, 2014 By

Egg protein is unique as protein supplements go. It’s a complete protein (meaning it has all 20 amino acids that are needed for a protein to fulfill all of its biological functions) but it’s not as easy to find or as cheap as whey protein or pea protein. It’s made from egg whites (as opposed…


Why are protein shakes bad for you?

Posted on September 7, 2014 By

Gotcha! They’re not! There’s nothing immediately toxic or harmful in protein shakes. However, as with any supplement, you have to keep a few things in mind: 1. Protein shakes are not food. When you base your diet around supplements, instead of a healthy balance of meat-/fish-/vegetable-protein, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and grains, you’re missing out on key…
