It’s hard to believe that it has been almost 3 years since I posted my recipe for Lemon Protein Jello (or my fancy name for it, Creme de limon gelée). Instead of protein powder, I revamped Jello with supplements that lifters typically use. You can use the same combination of BCAA’s and pre-workout powder that I used or just stick with a single supplement for the Jello.

Bibimbap is one of the most popular Korean dishes. Usually, it is made with beef, a fried egg, and cooked vegetables on a bed of steamed rice. This “lazy” version allows you to use the slow cooker to brown the beef and cook the vegetables. You can go about your day as usual and all you have to do is assemble the dish when it’s all cooked.

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a loaf of beer bread from food.com! The addition of cottage cheese makes the bread moist and the cheddar cheese gives it a nice crunchy crust.
My craving for sweets tends to run rampant on my rest days (when my food needs to be low carb). Rather than wrecking my macros, I often fit one or two flourless peanut butter and jelly cookies into my rest day meals. It’s a small treat that works wonders on satisfying my (and hopefully, yours!) sweet tooth.

I recently tried out Quest Nutrition’s newest protein bar and I have to admit that they really nailed the cookies and cream flavor. There are actual pieces of chocolate cookie crumbles and cream chunks in each bar! While the bar is delicious on its own, I went the extra mile made it into a parfait made from liquid cheesecake (a gooey custardy spreadable cheesecake) and dark chocolate pudding! The liquid cheesecake takes about 20 minutes to make and then it needs to be chilled, so plan accordingly!
Fat Swole Elvis Protein Pancakes
Elvis Presley’s favorite combination of peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwich (typically known as a “Fat Elvis”) is transformed into a sweet and salty stack of protein pancakes. You can practically picture a jacked up Elvis Presley enjoying this dish!

Green Tea Cheesecake
Adapted from To Food With Love
I received a request through the Facebook fan page for Japanese cheesecake. I was quite surprised to learn that it is basically a hybrid of a soufflé/cheesecake/poundcake! I tweaked the recipe to be more rest day friendly with full fat cream cheese but you can easily swap it with low fat/non fat cream cheese.

The chicken is first braised in coconut milk and spices and then broiled until it’s lightly charred and crispy! This would be wonderfully paired with jasmine rice (if your macros allow for it, of course!)
