A Quiet Week

10 Dec

I didn’t get up to much at all this week, it was nice and quiet, just plodding around at home and keeping to myself!! For some strange reason I didn’t even feel like cooking… but I’ve still got a couple of yummy recipes for you 🙂

Motivation: having a gym buddy!! I love going to the gym with my boyfriend, we really push each other  because we know when each other is wimping out 😛 it’s a lot of fun – ‘the couple that train together, stay together’ haha

Protein Profiteroles (aka chocolate casein filled vanilla protein muffins) from www.proteinpow.com – I just bought a bunch of different proteins so I’m getting to play around with different textures and it’s great!! Pea protein and casein protein tend to cook so much better than whey… and these profiteroles are so yummy!!

Serves 10

1 cup egg whites

1/2 cup pea protein

3/8 cup vanilla casein protein

1/4 cup ground oats

1 tbsp psyllium husk

1 tbsp coconut flour

1 cup lite coconut milk

Filling – 25g chocolate casein (or vanilla casein + 1 tbsp cocoa + 3 serves Stevia) and water

Topping – 20g dark chocolate

Mix all of the main ingredients, then pour into a muffin tray and bake at 170 degrees for 30 mins +/- 5 mins

Let them cool, and then dig a hole in the middle of them (I just pierced the top with a skewer, then shoved my finger in and made some room in there)

Make the filling by gradually adding small amounts of water to the casein until the desired consistency is reached

Put the filling mixture into a ziplock bag and cut a SMALL corner off

Twist the bag and squeeze casein into the muffins

Melt the dark chocolate and spoon some over the top of the muffins

Here’s a healthy snack idea – grilled capsicum with avocado ‘dip’ (avocado with lemon juice, salt and pepper)

This is a new week – I’m going to get off my bum and keep myself busy this week; I always feel better if I’m active and on my feet. I hope you all have a great week!!!!
