Don't get us wrong, protein shakes are good. However, from time to time, you want a change of pace in how you hit your macros. Back away from the blender and throw the chicken breast in the freezer - we've got some ace ideas for how you can get your protein fix and still enjoy the meal to the fullest.
Peanut Butter Protein Cups – One of our favourite chocolate bars just became even better. Clocking in at under 100 calories a piece with only 6 ingredients, this one packs a protein punch.
Super Sauce for Dipping – This sauce is great for when you’re looking to pack in some protein while snacking on veg. Just fold in some unflavoured protein powder in some greek yogurt and whatever other flavours you’d like and you’re good to go.
Jacked Potatoes – Everyone’s favourite comfort food is now guiltless! Sub some of the fat attributed to the butter for some flavourless protein powder and you’ve got yourself a puree that’ll have you ready to bulk up!
Peanut Butter and Banana Protein Pancakes – These pancakes are great when you’re looking to get fancy for your brekkie.
Energized Coffee – As if coffee wasn’t already a morning staple. Throw in a scoop of protein powder as well as your typical milk or cream (we suggest almond milk!). Get ready for an energy boost.
Protein Ice Pops – This simple recipe is the perfect throwback to our childhoods. Blend full fat coconut milk and your choice of flavoured protein powder, and then throw them in the freezer.
Protein Packed Pizza -Instead of traditional crust, make this gluten-free, protein packed version. Just sub in almond flour, protein powder, and psyllium powder into your regular pizza dough. Who says pizza can’t be a part of your training regime?
