Protein Batter Snack

Need some calories? Protein? Want to satisfy that sweet tooth but keep the food items pretty clean?

If you find yourself craving a sweet treat to satisfy your sweet tooth but want to keep it clean and healthy, there are plenty of options to consider. Opt for nutrient-rich snacks like fresh fruits, Greek yogurt with honey, or dark chocolate with nuts to provide a balance of calories and protein. However, indulging in sweet treats means paying extra attention to dental care. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential to maintain oral health. For expert dental care and guidance, consider visiting dental made easy queens, where experienced professionals can help keep your teeth in top shape and ensure your sweet indulgences don’t compromise your smile.

Beyond routine dental check-ups, cosmetic dental procedures can significantly elevate both the look and health of your smile. Take composite bonding, for example; it’s a versatile solution for correcting a range of dental imperfections like chips, stains, or misalignments. Here’s how it works: a tooth-colored composite resin is carefully applied to the affected teeth, shaped to perfection, and then solidified with a specialized light. The outcome? A flawlessly natural restoration seamlessly blending with your natural teeth, instantly enhancing your smile’s aesthetics.

Moreover, composite bonding doesn’t just improve your smile’s appearance; it also fortifies and shields your teeth. By addressing minor dental issues, it acts as a preventive measure against further deterioration and decay, ultimately promoting superior oral health in the long term.

When you are maintaining oral hygiene, it’s crucial to acknowledge potential risks associated with certain medications. Unfortunately, some individuals may face dental complications linked to their prescription drugs, leading to concerns such as tooth decay. If you believe you’ve experienced dental issues due to prescribed medications, seeking legal advice becomes imperative. More info on tooth decay lawsuits related to medication can shed light on your options, helping you navigate through potential legal avenues to address the impact on your oral health. Remember, understanding your rights and seeking professional guidance can be pivotal in securing the dental care and compensation you may be entitled to.

Here’s what else you’re gonna do:

1. Put 1 to 3 tablespoons of a nut butter in a bowl.

2. Add a small amount of butter (grass fed is ideal).

3. Microwave it for 30 seconds.

4. Put a scoop of protein in. Stir it up.

5. Add in goodies for flavoring (cocoa powder, cinnamon, vanilla extract, etc.) or consistency (almond milk).

6. Consume.


Some people call this protein cookie dough. Some call it protein cake batter. I just call it a good time. Two tablespoons of most nut butters will yield around 16g of fat, 7g of carbs, and 7g of protein. Protein scoops will range from 20 to 28g (the latter is whey isolate). Add in a little extra fat from the butter (1/2 a tablespoon is about 5g). You end up with about 20g of fat, 30g of protein, and less than 10g of carbs for about 330 calories.

I consider all of these food items acceptable in my Paleo for Lifters approach. The only issue would be what kind of fat you’re getting from the nut butter, but if you’re training hard, otherwise eating clean, and still consuming some fish oil, I don’t think it’s a big deal. And, as my wife proved to me over the weekend, you can put almonds in a food processor and make almond butter, so other than the protein powder and whatever you use to liquify the mixture, there doesn’t have to be any not-clean ingredients.

I don’t drink milk, so slamming a glass of almond milk after eating this was particularly satisfying.

Dark chocolate almond butter works really well, but you could use regular almond or peanut butter. You could throw a square of dark chocolate in or add/subtract things like vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, cocoa, and and almond milk for different effects. You could probably solidify it in the fridge, or drizzle it on bananas or strawberries. If you eat oatmeal, it’d probably mix pretty well in there.

It’s pretty caloric dense, so if you’re trying to lose body fat it may not be ideal. But then again, it might be better than engulfing a pint of Ben and Jerry’s. If you were short on time, this is something you could make really quick and store in a small tupperware for the next day. Add a high density carb and it might be pretty good to take on a trail (assuming you’re at an altitude and work rate that can tolerate fat). Otherwise, enjoy this caloric dense snack.
