How was everyone’s weekend?
Mine? In one word – SPLENDID!
Travis and I enjoyed a kid-free day in Asheville (thank you, Nan!), complete with a full body massage, a fancy hair cut and a trip to Greenlife!
The rest of the weekend we spent RESTING! I’m subbing for another teacher this week, so I took two VERY NEEDED rest days (and am antsy to get back at it tomorrow. That’s what rest days do for me – get me pumped to work out the next day!).
Today, I have a fun little giveaway for you guys!
I’ve fallen in love.
(not to be confused with lust. Lust is when you want something so bad that you can’t have.)
You CAN have this.
And not feel one bit of remorse for it.
Check these stats!
28 grams of protein, thus the product name.
The ingredient list is pretty great too. No HFCS or wonky stuff. 100% whole wheat!
I immediately took one out, toasted it and topped it with sunflower butter and fresh, locally grown strawberries.
The consistency is chewy. The flavor – cinnamony. It’s a word.
As you know, I strive for a high protein, high fiber diet. I’ve found that focusing on increasing my protein keeps me looking lean and feeling FULL!
I love that this product line feels like comfort food but doesn’t destroy all my hard work!
Like any good blogger, I contacted the company and asked if I could do a review/giveaway! A couple of days later, I received a care package of high protein goodness – bagels AND bread! Then I got to playing around in the kitchen and came up with this creation.
p28 Stuffed French Toast
- 2 slices p28 High Protein Bread
- 2 tbsp natural peanut butter
- 3 sliced strawberries
- 1/2 cup liquid egg whites
- 1 tbsp ground flax
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Combine egg whites, flax, cinnamon and vanilla in a large bowl. Make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (except there’s no jelly – slice 3 strawberries and lay them atop the peanut butter). Dip the sandwich into the egg white wash. Coat pan with non-stick spray and cook, flipping once. Top with fresh berries or syrup of your choice.
Here’s the nutritional breakdown (cal/carb/fat/protein):
52 grams of protein!! Tons of fiber! A great meal to fuel your day (or eat for dinner like we did!).
