PROTEIN!

Protein. I can’t seem to get enough of it lately. So what are my favorite ways to get it? I’ll tell you.

ALMOND BUTTER

Ok, any nut butter really, but I just so happened to buy a ton of almonds the other day, so this is what I currently have on stash.

The flavor is great and can be enjoyed on it’s own or mixed in baked goods and smoothies.

GREEK YOGURT

I used to be OBSESSED with Chobani when I was living in Boston- I would have it everyday either in smoothies or mixed with fruits/grains/etc. But sadly, Chobani isn’t available here so I have resorted to Oikos.

It doesn’t disappoint. I use it in baking recipes, dips, as a topping, etc. I used it for my Dill DipΒ the other day, and almost every recipe for pancakes.

Raspberry Mocha Pancakes (with almond butter and coconut butter topping)

EGGS

Fried or Hard Boiled are my choices. With sriracha. MMMMMmmmmmm.

PROTEIN BARSΒ 

Just recently, I was able to FINALLY get my hands on a box of Quest Bars. If you’re a blog reader, you might have seen these a lot lately- they have great stats (In my opinion)

Tons of fiber, tons of protein, no added sugar or artificial sweeteners, gluten free…

Yeah, I highly recommend trying these puppies (check out their website linked above to see the variety of flavors they offer)

In fact, I just had one…and it curbed my craving for sweets! SHOCKING.

MEAT

Chicken, turkey, beef, pork…all protein (obviously I wouldn’t rely on bacon being a source of protein, but ya know..) I have loved being able to incorporate lean meats in our weekly meals. They are filling AND I have found they give me the oomph I need to get to my nighttime cardio sessions (Is it weird that I get the best cardio workouts late at night?!)

PROTEIN POWDERS

Here are the protein powders I have been using as of late:

  1. Have you tried community natural foods? Just across road from the chinook let station under destruction at the moment. They have all sorts of good stuff you can’t get elsewhere. None of the good Greek yogurt tho.
