I have written several posts over the years for protein powder. I’ve gone from having it daily to eliminating it completely. Always to come back to try something new. Other than curiosity I don’t think I will try any other protein. I have a few criteria when looking for my protein powder.

1) What’s in it?

2) How does it taste?

3) Can I bake and make pancakes with it?

I also want it to be a high-quality source of Protein. I don’t do Whey Protein at all mostly because it has milk or cassein in it. Also,with the thousands of Whey products quality is questionable, and Whey smells like fart and tastes weird...

Meal Time Monday [Autosaved] plant-basedproteinroundup

When I first started my weight loss journey I was introduced to protein shakes. I wasn’t aware of all the options and drank what was recommended. After about a month I knew I had to try something different but didn’t know what to choose out of all of the many. A year later I have not only a great understanding of the value of protein powders in your diet. I have some recommendations. Protein powders are a great addition to your diet because:

• They are a convenient, high-protein, take anywhere food similar to meats, fish, eggs and dairy but can nonperishable in the powder form.
• They are a great healthy fat containing very little fat and are usually cholesterol free which is hard to find in a high-protein food
• They can be used for the entire family
• A bonus to all of these...

National Ice Cream Day Tease

Yesterday was National Ice Cream day which was bittersweet! Oh, how I would love to indulge in a Butter Pecan IceCream Sundae with Wet Walnuts, and Caramel Syrup.  (Imagine me Homer Simpson drooling) But that is no longer the case for me.  After many years suffering from digestive issues I have found the culprits are Dairy Products and Wheat Products through the process of elimination and an prick allergy test. Can I tell you how much that STINKS?  I love dairy things cheese especially but all inclusive to yogurt and of course ice cream.  I could do without a glass of milk which my mom used to make me drink every morning before school, and I would complain because I told her it made me feel stick to my stomach...

ProteinPancakes

Pancakes, Bacon, and Eggs are like our Saturday morning go-to. I usually make a double batch on the weekend and freeze them for the oil diva’s breakfast during the week. I place each one in between parchment paper, so they are easy to pull out and toast just like your convenient frozen pancakes already made in the store. It allows me time in the morning to provide them with a homemade breakfast in minutes.

I have never really liked pancakes, but my daughters do. After flipping pancake after pancake and not being able to indulge in anything with wheat, guess what I want, crave, obsess? Yes, pancakes. You always want what you can’t have well not anymore. These pancakes are so easy to make, delicious and don’t add extra time and a whole lot of ingredients to your regular breakfast routine...

Fat Loss Friendly Butter Rum Cupcakes

ButterRumCupcake

I have been on a sugar detox for 14 days and being sugar free can make a girl do some crazy things ie. create a sugar free cupcake out of desperation for a after dinner treat. Detoxing has been extremely hard because there is sugar in everything. Things that you didn’t expect to have sugar in them there is. Of course, I know there is sugar in cupcakes, that’s why I love cupcakes. I have found doing this detox that sugar does have a mental and physical effect on me. The first two days, I had cravings and would end my days with headaches, which I don’t get. A week into the detox I had a really emotional down spell for several days being that I am a pretty optimistic person this was very challenging. Then the stuffy sinus’ and increased allergies...
