Protein Plus Waffle



In a VitaMix, grind 40g old fashioned oats into coarse oat flour. In a small bowl, combine oat flour, 20g whey protein, 5g peanut flour, 1/4 tsp baking powder, 1/8 tsp xanthan gum, and powdered stevia as desired. Thoroughly mix and add 100g water. Pour into a preheated waffle maker and cook until it opens freely. Let sit for a second because it will be crispy and it will want to crumble. Serve with Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup.

Protein Gingersnaps



Measure 90 g Vitafiber syrup and heat in a sauce pan until it starts bubbling. Measure out remaining ingredients in a separate bowl while the Vitafiber syrup warms. Soft with a fork to make sure all the dry ingredients are mixed well. Once syrup starts bubbling, remove from heat and mix in dry ingredients with a fork until well combined. After it is thoroughly mixed, roll into a log and cut into 10 pieces. Press cookies slightly into a patty form. Bake at 350F for 5-8 minutes. Note: the longer you bake, the crunchier the cookie will be. As the cookies cool they will harden. The person that thought of this was a genius. Only 35 calories per cookie!!

Add quina to eggplant mixture and mix well. Then add flax “egg”. Be sure that everything is mixed well. I let mine sit for a few minutes then began to spoon it onto parchment paper.

Raw Zoodles with “Meat” Sauce



1 Large Zucchini, spiralized
1/4 Peeled Sweet Potato, diced
1/4C TVP
1/2C Raw Tomato Basil Sauce:


To make the Tomato Basil Sauce, section a giant tomato to fit into your food processor and add a handful of fresh basil, 1t garlic paste, 1/8t xanthan gum, 1/4C pistachios and salt to taste. This makes about 6 servings (1/2C each). Then soak 1/4C TVP with 1/2C of the raw tomato basil sauce overnight. Spiralize 1 large zucchini and chop up about 1/4 of a peeled sweet potato. This is the perfect combination of protein, carbs and fats. So incredibly simple too.
