During training sessions I have been referring to a protein cookie described to me by DaC. She sent me the link, so here it is for you: www.spoonfulofsugarfree.com. Once there click on Recipes, then Cookies, and from there “protein cookie”. (The protein comes from the chickpea dough.) Photos are really helpful.
And, for those of you loving the quinnoa patties and not loving the time spent with the saute’ skillet, check this option from Chef B: “Yesterday I made quinnoa patties and cooked them in the oven. I used a 12 cup muffin tin and 1 recipe fit perfectly. Then I popped them out and froze them. I’m going to eat some tomorrow and try them with raita. (use pam generously in the pan) 350 F for 30 min.”
I am impressed with the nutritional and health changes I am witnessing. Keep it up! And in that regard, another word about consistent protein in your day:
“…processed grains or refined sugars should be avoided because they require increased insulin release, as there is no fiber to slow down the digestive process. Pairing a lean protein with a healthy carbohydrate allows the pancreas to work less hard when secreting insulin with the meal – giving the pancreas ‘a break’.” (From Jillian Michaels and Dr Katja Van Herle in an article on Metabolism)
I love comments.
