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…
Ray Peat has shocked his followers by declaring on some recent podcasts that he has been experimenting with lower protein. (Date for reference July 2022.)
The amount he mentioned was 50g being the minimum for health and he was at about 60g at the moment. He found that if he reduced his protein to this amount, he was able to use less of his thyroid supplement and stay in good health.
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?”
I had no idea that in the USA they call an egg and zucchini style slice a Breakfast Casserole! Well now that I have the name right, let’s throw together an easy Breakfast Casserole recipe.
I had attempted the traditional recipes of this type of slice from ones found online however, firstly I don’t eat flour, so I baulked at that ingredient.
One attempt was with coconut flour. Allowing for the 1/3 cup to 1 cup of normal flour ratio as coconut flour is a whole other animal. The result was too cakey, too dry, too sweet for a savoury dish and totally not the taste for which I was aiming.
I remember from my childhood days my cousins used to make this and I remember it being the same cakey texture. Nice for cake but not for this.
Just thought I would keep away from chocolate this time around and play with some cute shapes in this high protein snack recipe – Collagen Gummies in lemon and coconut flavour!
Everywhere I read about special teas to help you lose weight, or shakes, or pills or any other fan-dangled thing that is supposed to cut your appetite or help with curbing cravings. I’m just wondering why this is necessary?
Why do you need to stop feeling your cravings?
High protein snack on the run? Yes please!
