Sneaky Ways to Get in Protein

Quote of the day:

“Let food be thy medicine, thy medicine shall be thy food.”

- Hippocrates

 

I am always looking for fun and different ways to include more protein in my family’s lifestyle (please note that I didn’t, nor will I ever, use the four-letter word “d-i-e-t”!).

One sneaky way (sneaky because I’m feeding five hungry kiddos between ages 2 and 14) is to regularly use my favorite protein powder, Jay Robb’s Egg White Protein Powder. The vanilla flavor tastes great!

When I make a smoothie, I sprinkle some in, and voila! Protein shake extraordinaire.

When I bake assorted yummy breads and muffins (pumpkin, banana, chocolate chip, blueberry, apple, etc.), I add it to the recipe, and voila! Protein muffins and breads extraordinaire.

When I give my kids a bowl of cereal, I sprinkle a teeny bit on top, and they never know the difference. Don’t sprinkle on too much or they will notice””it’ll get gummy.

Try these ideas for your family, and lemme know how it goes.

Have the best day ever!

Namaste!

    I love your ideas Taylor. And I agree with the word diet, especially around kids, they think weight loss not nutrition.

    The only problem with egg whites is that they contain avidin, if they are raw and uncooked. This substance binds to biotin and can lead to biotin deficiencies. Hopefully this product is not made from raw egg whites.
