Home Made Oven-Baked Protein Bars

Protein-Bars-2

My favourite protein bars are Clif Bars; more specifically the cool mint and the crunchy peanut butter. But I thought to myself, there has to be a better way to make a great tasting bar that is filled with more than just 10 grams of protein. Let the protein bar creation begin.

Strawberry & Blackberry Pavlova with Grated Chocolate

Pavlova-3

I was inspired by Sorted Food, a British YouTube channel that makes online cooking videos, to make this Pavlova. I have to admit, it was a little difficult mainly because the meringue was not as stiff as it should be. So if you ever attempt meringue, here are some key tips and tricks. (1) Always use room temperate eggs, the meringue will not be stiff if your eggs are cold (2) You need to whisk at high speeds when you make meringue. Right now would be a great time to get that KitchenAid Mixer (3) As odd as this is, put in a little white vinegar to the meringue because it will make it shine.

Sticky Honey Lemon Chicken Wings

Honey-Lemon-Chicken Honey Lemon Chicken Wings is a simple and tasty dish. You make everything in one pot. You get a fistful of flavours, the umami from the dark soy sauce, the sweet honey, the sour from the zesty lemon, and the earthy thyme. It’s time to step away from the grill or the deep fryer to try a new take on chicken wings. Serve with a side of herbed mashed potatoes for a hearty meal.

Lately I’ve been racking my brain around creative ways to pack more protein into my meals without eating chicken all the time. Did you know a can of light tuna contains a whopping 24g of protein?! I don’t know how many dishes you can make with canned tuna except tuna salad and I try to stay away from mayo based meals as much as I can. It was by chance that I recently came across the greatest mayo substitute (hello healthy egg and chicken salads!): flavoured greek yogurt dips. I picked up Summer Fresh Greek Yogurt Dips in “Jalapeno”. They’re gluten free, full of probiotics and doesn’t miss out on flavour.
