Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bread

I hate when you have a full day to get things done (no class) and end up wasting time doing absolutely nothing. My mind just could not focus on homework. It’s times like these when I preheat my oven and bake.
Over the weekend, my friend Lisa and I discovered the art of baking with Whey protein and we came across a few delicious and healthy recipes from Jaime Eason.
Today, I made her Cinnamon Swirl Bread and I was so impressed!
The bread was fluffy and moist and only 70 calories per slice.
Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bread (12 slices)
Preheat Oven to 350
In a small bowl: combine 1/3 cup baking splenda or stevia with 2 t. of cinnamon
In a medium bowl: 2 egg whites, 1 cup unsweetend almond milk, 1/3 c unsweetend apple sauce
In a large bowl: 1.5 cups oat flour, 2 T baking powder, 2 scoops vanilla whey protein, 1/2 t salt, 1/2 cup splenda or stevia
Stir applesauce mixture into flour mixture. Layer in a greased loaf pan by sprinkling cinnamon sugar in between each layer of flour mixture. Bake for 45 minutes.

Cinnamon Sugar Goodness
In other news, this is my preliminary reading assignment for my 18th century film/novel class. 871 pages of HELL.

Lunch today involved a ham sandwich, cape cod chips and that green stuff is sliced bell pepper

Off to attack this monster of a novel, Tom Jones for those who are curious.

Keeping it Cool

Good Morning Everyone!
This morning, I made a wonderful strawberry-banana smoothie using frozen fruit, light soy milk, whey protein and ice. I find that smoothies are a great way to start my day because they allow me to get my fruit and protein in at breakfast time. The protein also fills me up, so I am not hungry within an hour or two of finishing breakfast.

If you are trying to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight, you must be sure and get enough protein. Protein is essential to every cell in our body and is an important building block for muscles, cartilage, skin and bones. For an active person, try eating .5 grams of protein daily for every pound of body weight.

If you are having trouble eating enough protein from food sources, try a protein powder. I think they are really versatile and easy to use. I put my protein powder in smoothies, oatmeal, and greek yogurt. Right now, I use 100% Gold Standard Whey Protein in Vanilla Ice Cream. I have really enjoyed it because it isn’t chalky and it packs a powerful 25 grams of protein per scoop with only 3 grams of carbs and 1 gram of sugar. It is also affordable!
Today, I am off to Athens to lay by the pool with my friend Rachel. We are also trying to get a group of girls together to go see Sex and the City 2! So excited!
