I am always on the look out for lower calorie, high protein snacks and desserts that sate my appetite. This recipe takes 10 minutes and is so easy it almost feels a little ridiculous to share it, but here we are!
Because of my allergies I often miss out on fresh fruit and veg, which is quite frustrating and means I take a heap of supplements to make sure I’m getting all that vitamin and mineral goodness.
I’ve had OAS since I was a child, it always felt like some foods just felt “weird” to eat. It was then that I noticed that all my reactions tended to center around fresh or raw fruit and vegetables.
I wanted to reduce my meat intake but I couldn’t just cut meat out; as an amateur bodybuilder I need my protein to help me hit my goals. Plus, we’re a household that loves our steak so the chance of us giving it up entirely was very slim indeed!
A few weeks ago I tried out the BioTechUSA Chocolate Toffee flavour ISO Whey and I was impressed. As promised I ordered the Hazlenut flavour to give it a whirl and let you know how it stacks up!
BioTechUSA are no spring chicken, they’ve been in the supplement market since 1999 and have some pretty big sponsored names on their books. The ISO Whey Zero is lactose free and one serving offers, 93 calories, 21g of protein and 4.5g of BCAAs, Sounds pretty good if you ask me!
I’ve been seeing more and more of GoNutrition popping up on my social media, blogs and news feeds so I thought it about time I tried them out. They tout some strong claims for their products including a commitment to transparency, quality, innovation and results.
I spent a while researching which product to pick and opted for the Whey Isolate 90 Protein Powder in the Chocolate Salted Caramel flavour. This whey has the closest matching macro profile to what I already use – it’s actually slightly less carbs too.
Imagine my glee when I learnt that MyProtein brought out a SPECULOOS flavoured whey protein. So of course in order to make this an absolutely fair test I bought an entire packet of Lotus Biscoff, just to be sure. Science!
I’m not going to lie I got a little addicted to these oh so simple protein pancakes a year or so ago. They are easy, quick and tasty, perfect as a post work out snack, and you don’t need banana!
