Cooking with Level-1. The Why.

Why do I bake with only Level-1, and never use Phormula-1? It was a question I was asked the other day when sharing a recipe for protein brownies with a friend. They noticed a re-occurring theme with my “baked goods” recipes that I often pass along to them… on the ingredients list, I always list […]

Why Not Wednesday: Protein Granola Bars

I have forever been on a mission to make myself a better snack. One where I don’t have to give (re: compromise) too much, if anything at all. Remember my protein hockey pucks? Yeah, those babies steered me off the path of making my own snacks for a bit. I think I finally ended up […]

Supplement education – family style.

Last night, in the middle of our first significant snowfall of the season (which feels weird to say that, given where we live… but a different story for another day), my son, while splashing around in the bathtub, sending Ducky sailing through the air to plop messily in the bubbly water, points to my phone […]

A Food Thing: Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bread.

If I thought there was never a dull moment in this household before, having a baby has certainly changed that. Everything has changed, yet it’s all still the same (if that makes any sense to someone who doesn’t have newborn baby fried brain like me). I like to cook. Baking? I have very little patience […]

Foodie Friday: Jamie Eason’s Turkey Meatloaf Muffins.

Two things have changed in my life so far since becoming a mom. The first, it’s always going to take at least an hour for me to get out of the house now. The second? Getting my nutritional needs on target each day is a lot harder now. Eating when I’m hungry isn’t always a […]

Quinoa Fried Rice.

In the midst of all the insanity that is often known as my life, the only other thing that calms my mind and body as much as the gym is cooking. Normally this time of year, with school sports in a lull and waiting for the Spring seasons to start, I have limitless amounts of […]

Protein ba-no, wait, pucks.

If you’re like me, you probably cringe when you’re standing in the “healthy” aisle of your local grocer while reading the ingredients list of that wall of protein and energy bars before you. You might, like I do, sometimes, pull out your phone and start scanning them, seeing how they fare on Fooducate. The verdict? […]

Best Protein Pancakes you’ll ever eat.

My biggest weakness is a tall stack of French toast and a heaping plate of bacon. After changing my eating habits, it became my go-to cheat meal quite a bit. When I was younger, my mother would sometimes make “Brinner” (breakfast for dinner) and I would be on cloud nine. I love pancakes well enough, […]

Protein: The Whey vs Soy argument.

When I first started over a decade ago, I was a big soy protein drinker. EAS Soy Protein and I were best friends. Over the course of time though, the soy would leave me bloated and heavy feeling. Something you DON’T want after you’ve just worked your ass off for two hours at the gym. […]

Protein. It’s what’s for dinner.

Anyone who wants good results in the gym, knows 70% of it comes from what you do in your kitchen. I tell my husband this about once a week it seems, figuring someday he’ll get the hang of it. Until then, he gets at least one meal that I know is good for him. I […]
