HPLC Almond Butter Protein Cookies: 62g protein

This recipe destroys all other “protein cookie” recipes you’ll find online.

What is the best tasting egg protein powder?

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…

This means that, although it’s made from milk, it contains so little lactose that you will not have the typical lactose-intolerance symptoms…


Why is hemp protein so bad?

“Natural foods” people, organic-maniacs, and every kind of alt-medicine purveyor under the sun loves hemp. It makes fibers, it should be legal to grow in the US, it’s a plant, and, let’s be honest, it’s also because tons of people like to smoke weed. But that doesn’t mean hemp protein is actually good or useful…
