Getting Creative With Protein Powder Think that getting more protein in has to mean gorging on chicken breasts five times a day? Or, maybe the idea of slamming back chalky tasting protein shakes is what fills your mind. Whatever the case, chances are, you are put off by increasing your protein quota per day. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way. Protein powder is an excellent way to increase your total daily protein consumption, but this doesn’t have to mean slugging back protein shake after protein shake. In fact, there are a great many ways that you can utilize protein powder in your everyday diet. Let’s look at four examples to get you started. Mixed In With Oatmeal The first way that you can add more protein to your daily diet is to stir it into a bowl of oatmeal. Simply prepare the oatmeal according to the package directions and then mix in the protein powder once finished. Note that this may thicken the oatmeal, so you might want to add little more water or almond milk. This will turn an otherwise low-protein breakfast into one that’s much more balanced and add lots of flavor. Prepared Into Protein Pancakes If you are looking for a delicious lazy Sunday breakfast, try protein packed pancakes. Simply combine some protein powder with egg whites and some ground oats and then pour onto a hot skillet and cook like you would a normal pancake. These will be far more diet-friendly and can be topped with natural nut butter, sugar free syrup, or any fresh fruit you desire. Added To Muffins/Bars Whipping up a batch of muffins? Consider adding some protein powder to that as well. Protein powder is easily added into just about any baking you’re doing in replacement for up to one half of the flour content. Just note that as protein powder does tend to dry out the recipe, you’ll want to add a bit more of whatever moist ingredient the recipe calls for. Used To Prepare Healthy Ice Cream That’s right – ice cream. You can use protein powder to create healthier ice cream. If you’re trying to eat right, chances are ice cream is not making a regular appearance in your diet plan, thus this is one craving you’d love to satisfy. To prepare healthy ice cream, you can either purchase an ice cream maker (the best option), or simply use a Tupperware container and stir it multiple times throughout the freezing process. Combine together a few scoops of protein powder with some almond or coconut milk along with some nut butter or any other add-ins you desire. Then use the ice cream machine to make the ice cream or simply pour it into a Tupperware container and stir at one or two hour intervals until the desired consistency is reached. Then, enjoy! So don’t get bored with protein powder any longer. You can get your protein intake up all while enjoying your food at the same time.
