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

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.

Cauliflower Bread Two Ways

After my recent wonderful discovery on Gmarket for frozen cauliflower (see here), I was dreaming of ways to use it. When I was back home in Canada for a whirlwind visit this August, I had my mom make me a cauliflower bread because I hadn’t had cauliflower in over a year, and had been salivating over all these wonderful recipes I had seen. Most cauliflower bread recipes call for cottage cheese, which I haven’t really seen here, so I needed to try out my own way.
