Tahini & Almond Protein Ice Cream
This high protein, sugar free ice cream is fantastic for those looking for a fat bomb whilst on a ketogenic diet. You can increase or decrease the protein content by adjusting the amount of protein powder if you are concerned with the protein content knocking you out of ketosis. Sweeten with Stevia and add whatever additional flavours you like, although the natural combination of almond and sesame is really good.
Thai Style Peanut & Turkey Burgers
Although turkey mince can be a little less flavoursome and moist than beef mince, these burgers retain their moisture from the addition of peanut butter and kale. The flavours combine to create a Thai style burger, which is not too spicy (although you can add as much or as little chilli as you prefer). A delicious high protein, low carbohydrate snack or as part of a meal. Even the kids love these! This mixture makes about 7 burger patties, but you can adjust according to how your going to use them. You may want larger burgers for use on a BBQ or smaller bite sized patties for addition to a lunch box (they are great cold).
Tuna & Spinach Frittata
Frittata is a super easy meal for any time of the day. We boost the protein content of this and give it a bit of a Spanish variety with the addition of tuna. Tuna has a subtle seafood taste, which makes it the perfect fish for this recipe. You could also use cod, or some other form of lean fish (oily fish tends to have a strong fish taste). If you have a good non stick pan, then you do not need to use any oil. If required, the small amount should not affect the nutritional content. Perfect for a late night recovery meal or anytime when on a low carbohydrate diet.
Tuna Foo Yung
A great, tasty, high protein alternative to a Chinese takeaway.
Turkey & Chickpea Savoury Protein Muffins
These muffins make a great protein packed addition to any lunch box, or as a quick tasty snack. No supplements are used, just natural ingredients flavoured with herbs and spices. They can be eaten hot or cold, but I prefer them cold served with an array of colourful veggies. If your blender cannot fit all the ingredients, then try blending the chickpeas, eggs and spices first, and then mix with the turkey mince by hand. This recipe makes twelve muffins, each containing over 15 grams of quality protein.
