Enormous Kabocha Protein Shake

IMG_1914If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you may have noticed the lack of shake recipes and the plethora of protein cake recipes. (Check here and here for some awesome ones.) And that is because I always like to eat my calories, rather than drink them. Personally, if I drink a protein shake that is just powder mixed with water, I’m not going to feel satiated at all. There is nothing satisfying about that either!

However, throw in a whole bunch of ice cubes, add a couple secret ingredients, and voila! You have yourself a super filling, super satisfying, creamy delicious protein shake masterpiece what will make you feel full, satisfied and super happy! Or at least that’s how I feel. And for only a few extra calories.  Continue reading

Protein Bread

What do you do when you’ve run out of protein powder and you want something other than meat post workout?

You make protein bread!!!

This turned out to be a happy surprise- I didn’t really know what the result would be, but it was definitely a winner!

flaxbread (1 of 9)I wasn’t actually planning to photograph this, but it was definitely blog-worthy, so I just quickly took some pictures before I devoured it! Continue reading

As you know, I LOVE kabocha. Love Love Love Love Love Love Love kabocha!!! Actually now, I get a discount at my local “Angel Home Mart”- just a random Korean grocery store on danhobak  단호박, as it’s called here. I told them it is my favourite, and because they like me, they say “special discount, only for you” 🙂 Continue reading

My Iherb Recommendations

After being asked fairly frequently about what I usually order on iherb.com, I thought I would do a blog post. This by no means is a way to get you to buy from iherb specifically, nor the exact products, however, I just thought it would helpful. And yes, I do have an iherb code, which you can use to save $10 off your first order (AJO567)- however, I make like 1% or something really small, so honestly I’m not doing this to make money. And always, I’d recommend you to buy from whichever source is most cost-effective, ethical or sustainable for you- be it online or from a local store. I’m putting the prices that iherb currently lists, because that way you can compare it to whichever source you use.

Also, I recommend that you do your own research on the supplements- there’s a ton of information out there (both good and bad), so I’m not going into details about all the benefits etc on my choices. And of course- supplements are meant to supplement your diet. I certainly don’t take them expecting miracles to happen, and use them to add to my diet in case of deficiencies. Again, this is just what I use, adjust for your own goals. Continue reading

Chocolate Peanut Pudding Cake

What is a Pudding Cake?

Well, it’s a term I’ve coined to describe most of the cakes/baked good I make. They aren’t quite cakes, they aren’t quite muffins, they definitely aren’t loaves or pancakes.. they are moist, dense, filling and full of fiber and protein, and are definitely delicious…and I think Pudding Cake sums them up pretty well. Continue reading

Unbelievable Pillowy Egg “Bread”

Bread is a treat that I generally do not include in my diet. It was never allowed on my plan during my competition training, and so it’s not something I’ve really reincorporated into my life. Don’t get me wrong- I think bread is incredibly delicious! But here, in Korea, they don’t even have the bread I would choose anyways. Korean bread is all that white, sweet, processed, insulin-spiking stuff. Not something I want.
