This 3 ingredient yogurt cake is tangy with a texture kind of like a cross between custard and cheesecake. Recipe first, then a bit of explaining later…
Does eating dairy foods give you big boobs and belly fat?
In my experience – yes it does. But let me explain why I’m not quitting dairy altogether.
There is no doubt that cheese is a wonderful food in the Ray Peat line up. When weight loss is a consideration however, the protein vs fat equation comes into play in all the cheeses you are eating.
This post was inspired by two of the members of our private Facebook group who were discussing cottage cheese and the fact that it was awful and tasteless. Another issue was gut irritation.
High protein ice-cream for breakfast?
You bet! That’s what I’ll be eating in the heat of summer with loads of fruit.
In our Facebook Private Group, we were discussing making sure we get enough protein to keep the liver functioning properly. One member complained that she struggles to get it all in because she doesn’t always feel like it. So I asked the question:
“If it was ice cream with fruit & chocolate on top would you feel like it then?”
Everyone seems to live life in a rush these days, racing to work, play or exercise. I don’t think it’s slowing down any time soon, so these Protein Chocolate Bars will have you eating healthy on the run.
This is why I love my protein packed treats that you can make once a week and keep in the fridge or freezer for a quick breakfast or snack any time.
I was thinking about my protein intake because it’s important for all kinds of things like your skin, connective tissue, muscle building or maintenance, makes hormones and enzymes. As a ‘fish only eating’ vegetarian, I wondered… “if I don’t eat fish every day, would I still be eating enough?” How much protein do I need?
(Note – 2021 Update: I no longer eat tahini, nuts, chia seeds, protein powder, peanut butter and only very occasionally fresh salmon. This is because they are too high in polyunsaturated fats which cause all kinds of issues. Read more about what kinds of issues in this article.)
