I have some very exciting news, my friends.
This exciting news does not have to do with football teams on a winning streak, running a first triathlon, or buying a cute new pair of athletic shoes – although I do think those would all be very exciting things!
What it does have to do with is zesty orange waffles, flourless blueberry-rhubarb cakes, pizzas, double chocolate truffles, and pumpkin butter ice cream. That and 195 other recipes you can make that actually support your healthy lifestyle, and even your hardcore training program!
You do know what I’m talking about, don’t you? My very first cookbook, due out in just a couple months! My working on it all summer has been part of the reason you haven’t been getting a ton of new-post updates in your inbox (because, of course, you’ve subscribed!) and it’s what has been keeping me awake at night, with visions of protein-packed sugarplums dancing in my head.
I have made so many recipes with protein powder in them over the last several months that I don’t know if I can cook without it anymore. I think I forgot how. But honestly, I’m not complaining.
Instead, I’ve been happily eating more than my fair share of cookie dough and frosting and garlicky rolls – just to make sure they’re perfect for future “Protein Powder Cooking… Beyond the Shake” readers – and using the plethora of extras to turn unsuspecting friends/family/coworkers into protein-recipe addicts.
If any of these pictures remotely encourage you to want to try out a recipe… may I please just say, I fully support your clicking on this link here and securing your copy of the book.
While some people do judge other people for drooling over photos of pizza and cookies and ice cream, this is not the time nor the place for that! Your only real risk here is probably enjoying life a little more and feeling a little healthier about every meal and snack. I can get behind that.
Your turn! Send me a comment about what you think! What kinds of things are you looking forward to baking with protein powder?
