1. Add Nuts and Oats to your everyday foods
Add a handful of trail mix, nuts, steel cut oats, dried fruit into your whole wheat pancake batter before you cook them. Top with protein packed Greek Yogurt, apple sauce, agave nectar, almond butter, fresh fruit or organic honey. “I make a couple dozen each week and store them in the freezer. It’s easy to reheat in the toaster and eat as you walk out the door. Great for busy parents, kids late for school!?”
2. Replace the Creams with High Protein Greek Yogurt
Replace sour cream, cream cheese, whipped cream even mayo…with Greek Yogurt. Greek Yogurt has more protein, low in sugar and carbs. It easily replaces all types of creams in cooking, sandwiches, sauces, dips, salad dressing. Anywhere you use sourcream you can use greek yogurt for added protein and less fat.
3. Add Power with Protein Powder:
Add a scoop of protein powder to your soups, smoothies, shakes. The “Natural” (non – flavored) protein powder is ideal to add to all types of foods to boost the protein in your foods. Most people don’t eat enough protein. I eat 5-6 “Mini Meals” per day, each Mini Meal includes PROTEIN.
