Cooking With Supplements I
Cooking with Supplements
One of the biggest joys in life is preparing and consuming great food. Sorting through and figuring out what is healthy or what can fit into your diet, however, may pose an issue. Sticking to a rigid diet usually entails eating the same tired meals over and over again, sapping your determination. Sometimes, you may take a protein powder supplement and substitute that for your meal in order to spice things up,and that’s okay, but why stop there? If you want to really kick things up a notch, try out the recipes that we’ve cooked up. We’ve also provided the macros for each one so you won’t go overboard.
The first recipe is a simple shake that calls for Isolation, our 100% whey isolate protein powder. Isolation comes in two flavors: chocolate and vanilla. We’ll be using chocolate for this one.
The Brownie Protein Shake
- 1 peeled banana
- 1-2 scoops of Isolation chocolate protein powder.
- ½ eggplant
- 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
- ½ cup of almond milk OR dark chocolate almond milk (depending on your chocolate preferences)
- ¼ cup of chocolate syrup ¾ cup of water Pinch of salt
The brownie shake is perfect for a morning meal or a midday snack. You can replace the eggplant with an avocado, if you prefer, and still end up with the same great taste.
The Black Currant Shake
-With Formula 19 supplement.
- 1 ½ cup almond milk
- 1 ½ cup of organic black currant yogurt
- 1 scoop of black currant Trojan Horse.
- ¼ cup of black grapes
- Crushed ice
Place all of the ingredients in the blender and mix for 1 minute or until smooth.
Designed with healthy ingredients in mind, the black currant shake is a healthy means of consuming Trojan Horse, our stimulant-free fat burner. Not loaded with excess fat, calories, or sugar, the black currant shake replaces traditional ice cream with a healthy yogurt alternative. Almond (or coconut) milk provides a healthier alternative to cow milk and often tastes better. Adding grapes to the product (you can garnish the final product with a few whole grapes, too) blends well with the black currant taste, creating a cool and refreshing shake.
If you’d like to use a similar recipe for a pre-workout boost, try adding Formula 19. Typically used as a post-workout supplement, Formula 19 can also be taken to supplement your pre-workout carbohydrate intake, fueling your workout.. It’s a low calorie addition to our black currant shake. Just add two scoops to the recipe, and you’re good to go.
Tired of shakes? We’ve got you covered. Below you’ll find a chocolate chip cookie recipe to use with our chocolate Isolation protein powder.
Isolation Cookies (per batch)
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup coconut flour (high in protein)
- ½ TSP baking soda
- ¼ cup almond milk
- ⅛ cup of chocolate chips (sugar-free)
- 1 scoop of Isolation protein powder
- 8-10 ground almonds
- Pre-heat your oven to 350℉.
- Mix together egg, baking soda, milk, ground almonds, and protein powder.
- Once the dough is together, add in chocolate chips.
- Divide mixture into cookies on a cookie sheet.
- Cook in oven for 13-18 minutes.
After consulting with some of our Muscle Boys at the call center, I learned that a surefire way to create non-rubbery protein cookies is to make sure your protein powder only makes up 1/8th of the mixture. Being too liberal with your protein may cause issues with your cookies. The overall process should take no longer than 25 minutes to complete, making our Isolation cookies a quick and tasty snack.
If you’d like something a little more substantial, breakfast protein pancakes may please you. Utilizing our 3-Whey protein blend, we’ll focus on baking some delicious pumpkin spice pancakes.
3-Whey Pumpkin Spice Pancakes
- ⅓ cup oats
- ¼ cup pumpkin
- ½ cup egg whites (about 4 eggs)
- ½ cup cinnamon
- 1 scoop of 3-Whey Cinnamon Swirl protein blend
- Mix ingredients together in mixing bowl into batter
- Melt coconut butter or spray non-stick spray on skillet
- Pour batter on skillet, flipping when necessary
- When pancakes are golden brown on each side, they are ready to be served
Additionally, if you’d like to bake your pancakes in the oven, you can pre-heat the oven at 425℉. Place your batter in a buttered/sprayed pie pan, and cook it for approximately 20-25 minutes. Again, when the pancakes are a golden brown, you can enjoy.
