I LOVE banana bread! But the macros on any standard slice are usually too dear to spend. Take the Starbucks banana walnut bread for example. 1 slice yields 52g carbohydrates, 21g fat and 6g protein. That’s 420 calories without so much as a sniff of chocolate chips!
This pumpkin protein chocolate mug cake is sure to become a fast-favorite throughout the fall and winter season. Not only is it deliciously tasty, but it’s also a great way to get some good quality protein in without having to resort to grilled chicken or yet another protein bar. Although protein bars may be your go-to protein option when you’re on the go, if you’re finding yourself chowing down on them at the end of the night when you’re at home, you might want to think about switching things up to something with some more natural ingredients.

Eating out can be a challenge, so I recently I perused Subway’s entire menu and came up with these 9 healthy picks for you to enjoy the next time you’re on the go and decide to “eat fresh”. Living up to its tagline, Subway is pretty nutritionally sound these days with its chicken made from 100% white chicken and containing less than 1% soy protein. Subway also says all its chicken is raised without antibiotics and is free of artificial flavors and preservatives.
Finding high protein meals at your favorite fast food stops like Panera can be a challenge. Just because you’re picking something that appears healthy doesn’t mean it’s gonna have a lot of protein, and vice versa, a lot of protein doesn’t necessarily make a meal “healthy” either. Whether you’re trying to lose weight or simply looking to keep your body composition in check, choosing wisely at places like Panera can go a long way to helping you reach your goals.
Quesadillas used to be my go-to order at this Italian restaurant called Ragazzi in Cayman – at least for lunch anyways because for dinner you sure as hell don’t wanna miss out on their stone-baked pizzas! Anyway, they had a lobster quesadilla that really was to die for! Since I left Cayman I can honestly say I don’t think I’ve had one quesadilla. That was over 4 years ago! Isn’t that crazy!? Until the other day after I’d made some shredded chicken and happened to have some low-carb tortillas on hand, the inspiration to whip up some Mexican goodness came to mind.
