If you’ve ever worked with a personal trainer to loose weight one of the first things they tell you to do is increase your protein intake. At first you think this is great I can eat more protein but after a while you realize there’s just so much chicken you can eat. There’s always protein shakes but again, you can only drink so much. And after a while the constant meat increase or shake drinking takes a toll and off the diet train you fall. Here’s a cookbook that will help you eat the foods you loved before your high protein diet. Do you miss pancakes? Well there’s a recipe for a protein packed pancake in this book. How do they get protein in a pancake? Protein powder. The secret is learning how to cook with protein powder.
This is a new twist on a high protein diet. No longer are you shackled to protein drinks or forced to eat lots and lots of meat. Now you can have bread with protein in it! Yes you read that right. You can make chocolate banana nut bread. If you are vegan this is a wonderful book to help you get more protein in your diet. There’s only so much Tofu a person can take.
The Protein Powder Cooking….Beyond the Shake cookbook by Courtney Nielson is full of over 200 recipes of foods you love with added protein. There are recipes for desserts, breakfast/brunches and many more. The variety is what will help you stay on track. If you are looking for a book to help assist in your weight loss journey and/or help build muscle mass this is a wonderful addition to any work out plan. Many of these recipes are family friendly. You won’t need to make a separate meal for yourself and another for your family. The whole family can enjoy the same meal.
