ABCC Nice Cream January 29, 2021 16:29

How are you doing on your New Year's Resolutions? A Protein shake a day can help you reach your goals!

How many of us had New Year's Resolutions this year? Of course, losing weight and getting fit were probably the most repeated resolutions this January. We are almost at the end of the first month of 2021 and this is about the time where good habits are being stuck to or abandoned. Experts say that it takes around 21 days for a habit to form in the brain, specifically the basal ganglia. 

Neuroscientists have traced our habit-making behaviors to a part of the brain called the basal ganglia, which also plays a key role in the development of emotions, memories and pattern recognition. 

Dr. Webster, our resident weight loss expert, decided that we were going to form good habits this winter. During the winter months, we created a home gym for daily exercise. We alternate with leg exercises and arm exercises each day with core work everyday and vestibular balance exercises daily. We have a pre and post workout mix of Complete Paleo Protein and L-Glutamine powder to cut down on muscle soreness.

Another good habit we are trying to make is to cut down on sugary snack foods. One big vice many of you might have is ice cream. We strive to find healthier, nutrient-dense alternatives for comfort foods on a daily basis. We made a delicious alternative last night and it tasted just like we were eating a decadent, rich chocolate fudge ice cream. Our alternative to this cold treat is called Nice Cream! 

There are tons of Nice Cream recipes out there on the internet! Ours has only 4 ingredients!

ABCC Nice Cream made with Chocolate Complete Paleo Protein Powder!

ABCC Nice Cream ingredients:

1 cup of creamy Almond Butter (we used the Trader Joe's brand)

5 frozen ripe Bananas

2 scoops (about a half cup) of Delicious Chocolate Complete Paleo Protein Powder

a teaspoon of Ceylon Cinnamon

Instructions:

Just blend the 4 ingredients together until smooth and pour into a glass dish,

freeze overnight or eat right away!

Top with a sprinkle of the Ceylon Cinnamon and your favorite raw nuts. We used walnuts. Pecans or almonds go great with it too!

Healthier Banana Splits November 20, 2020 15:05 4 Comments

Healthier Banana Splits made with delicious chocolate Complete Paleo Protein!

Instead of a snack that is low in nutrients, high in added sugar and full of artificial ingredients, try substituting a healthier alternative. We substituted Chocolate Complete Paleo Protein mixed into Greek Yogurt for ice cream and topped with frozen berries and raw walnuts.

Healthier Banana Splits:

Cut one banana in half and place on plate.

Mix Greek Yogurt and Paleo Protein together.

1 cup of Plain Greek Yogurt (We used Oikos brand which is super thick!)

1 scoop of Complete Paleo Protein in the delicious chocolate flavor

Top with your favorite ingredients:

We used frozen blueberries, raspberries, cherries, strawberries and blackberries. No added sugar in this frozen fruit mix blend.

Sprinkle raw walnuts and Ceylon Cinnamon over the top!

Our version of a healthier banana split was great for breakfast. We were satiated for hours which means we weren't tempted to snack until the next meal.

Often, the task of losing weight seems like so much work you might think it is impossible. But it’s not!  In fact, sometimes some small, almost insignificant changes can add up to big changes in your weight and health. If you are someone who is resistant to change yet you know you need to make improvements in the way you live, small changes might be your best approach to healthy weight loss. Baby steps might take you longer to reach your goal than if you dive in head first and make huge changes to your diet and exercise schedule. But you can still get there by taking baby steps.

In the long run you have to be honest with yourself.  If you make drastic changes, will those changes stick over the long term or are you more likely to rebound back to your old ways?  If the latter is true for you, then you should try to slowly develop good habits by making small yet productive changes that don’t excessively impact your usual routine. Once those changes have become habit (and this can take some time) you can make more small changes and get more benefits from those changes.

Some small changes that can add up to big improvements in your weight and health include:

•    Drink more Water
•    Reduce Stress
•    Get better Sleep
•    Weight-bearing Exercise
•    Increase your Activity Level
•    Be mindful of your Beverages
•    Test and fix your sluggish Metabolism

Dalgona Coffee with Chocolate Paleo Protein May 13, 2020 17:45 22 Comments

Dalgona Coffee made with Delicious Chocolate Complete Paleo Protein!

We noticed that a lot of folks are trying their hand at a whipped sweet-tasting milky coffee treat that is trending known as Dalgona Coffee

Dalgona, or Ppopgi in Korean, means “honeycomb toffee” or "old fashioned sugar candy". It's a treat you can easily make yourself and it tastes delicious! Dalgona coffee is a beverage made by whipping equal proportions of instant coffee powder, sugar, and hot water until it becomes creamy and then adding it to cold or hot milk.

We had a lot of fun experimenting in the RawWheyProtein.com kitchen. We put a healthier spin on our version of Dalgona coffee by substituting xylitol (a low glycemic sweetener) instead of sugar and using coconut cream instead of milk. We kicked our recipe up a few notches by adding chocolate Complete Paleo Protein for a burst of mocha flavor and high quality beef-based protein!

Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons of your favorite Instant Coffee, we used Nescafé

1 Tablespoon of Xylitol for added sweetness if you choose you can add more or less to your taste preferences

4 Tablespoons of hot water

2 Tablespoons of Complete Paleo Protein in the Delicious Chocolate Flavor

1 can of Organic Coconut Cream, we used Trader Joe's brand

Instructions:

Whip the instant coffee, xylitol, water and Paleo Protein powder with a whisk or use a hand blender until soft peaks are formed.

Pour over iced or warm coconut cream.

We tried several versions of Dalgona coffee with other ingredients such as our Vegan Creamy Vanilla Complete Pea Protein with a Matcha version for those of you who don't like coffee or chocolate and it was a delightful snack.

Try a Coconut Matcha Vegan Dalgona Treat made with Complete Pea Protein!

To make the Vanilla Matcha version:

Mix one Tablespoon of Matcha powder with 4 Tablespoons of hot water.

In a separate mug, mix 1 Tablespoon of Creamy Vanilla Complete Pea Protein

with coconut cream. 

Pour the steeped and thoroughly whisked Matcha and hot water mix over the Pea Protein and coconut cream mix. Add xylitol for sweetness to your taste preference.

These 2 delicious drinks make great snacks or breakfasts. The added Protein helps satiate your appetite so that your blood sugar stays even until lunch or your next meal.

No Bake Lemon Cheesecake January 7, 2020 13:47 8 Comments

No Bake Lemon Cheesecake made with Raw Whey Protein!

How is the New Year treating everyone? We hope everyone is staying healthy this winter. To build immunity against the winter colds circulating, we mixed up a healthy dessert full of Vitamin C made with Complete Whey Protein and fresh lemons! 

Ingredients for our NO BAKE Lemon Cheesecake:

For Crust Blend these 2 ingredients:

1 cup (approximately 10) pitted Medjool dates

1 cup pecans (or your favorite raw nut such as walnuts, cashews, almonds)

Press gooey mixture flat into glass container. Sprinkle with Himalayan sea salt.

For filling, whip together:

Zest and juice of 5 lemons

1/2 cup of xylitol (low glycemic sweetener)

1 Tbsp. Maple Syrup

1 tsp. Vanilla extract

4 scoops of Unflavored Complete Whey Protein powder

2 packages of 8 oz. cream cheese

Once whipped, pour over the date and nut crust. Place in freezer overnight. Garnish with fresh lemon zest.

Why is protein so important to our health?

The single most important antioxidant in the body is called glutathione and it is made directly from protein. 

Restrict your protein and you risk excessive aging due to low antioxidant production. And here is an important fact- you can’t replace glutathione with other antioxidants like vitamin C. Glutathione has a specific role in protecting your body and only it can perform that protective role. 

Your immune system helps fight infections and to do this it uses specific types of immune-boosting proteins. Consuming high-quality protein can be a nice boost to your immune system. Without it, your immune system would shut down and you would likely become ill from bacterial or viral infections.
