If you’re like basically everyone else, you miss all the yummy tasting food when you go on a fat loss diet. It turns out that most high protein food just does not taste nearly as good as all the high carb and fat foods that you were so accustom to. While part of this is inevitable (sorry, dieting sucks..), some of it can be transformed into delicious meals or even desserts! Martin Berkhan from LeanGains.com has just posted a blog entry with a ton of great tasting high protein, low carb, and low fat meals and desserts. All of the recipes can be found here and a direct link to the pdf of the recipes can be found here.
In addition to the protein pancakes that Martin has in his arsenal, I prefer a simpler, higher protein type of pancakes (and in my opinion, just as great-tasting!).
- 1/2 cup low-fat or skim milk
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
- 8 egg whites
- 2 scoops vanilla protein, ~50g (casein makes it thicker)
- some vanilla extract (optional)
- some sweetener like Splenda (optional)
