10 Food Recipes That You Can Add Protein Powder With Surprisingly Well

10 Food Recipes That You Can Add Protein Powder With Surprisingly Well

Healthify your food

I refuse to hear another person tell me that eating healthy means eating gross food. Thats pure Tom-foolery. And I have proof! All these recipes are healthier alternatives to otherwise fat and carb filled foods! Don't shy away from eating healthy when a quick substitution of protein powder and other ingredients is a sure fire way to eat clean.

1. Brownies

One of my favorite desserts now comes with a hidden superpower. Protein baby. This recipe is super delicious and is sure to curb your sweet tooth and give you wonderful and gooey brownies

2. Pancakes/Waffles

There is a huge debate going on in our world right now, and it's not capital punishment. I'm talking about pancakes and waffles. Whatever your stance may be, both can now be packed with protein! Just add a scoop of multipurpose or flavored (i prefer vanilla) to your Bisquick, water, and shake! Simple enough.

3. Pudding

I love me some pudding. In fact, even as a wee child, my parents called me "puddin". Not sure why, but it might have had some effect on my love for the good stuff, now. Most puddings are packed with sugar and milk, but here is a recipe that is healthy and indulgent!

4. Cheesecake

As a midwesterner, I know I don't get to experience the true taste of good cheesecake. So instead of settling on mediocre cheesecake, not from Philly, its best to make it healthy, too. Although I can honestly say I have never tried protein cheesecake, it looks and sounds fantastic. Try this recipe and let me know how amaze-balls it is!

5. Pizza

One of my greatest loves, aside from my grandma, is PIZZA! I'm talking gooey, cheesy, garlicky, saucy p-i-z-z-a. Being gluten free is already punishment enough, but eating healthy makes pizza near impossible to enjoy. But have no fear, there is a recipe to use and get the best of both worlds.

6. Oatmeal

When making oatmeal, I tend to use milk instead of water because milk makes everything cooked, tastier. Before cooking your oatmeal, make a standard protein shake using 1 cup of milk and one scoop of powder (vanilla is best). After your shake is mixed, add the dry oatmeal, and cook accordingly. Drizzle some agave nectar and add some walnuts to make it taste even more delish.

7. Black Bean Burgers

Grilling and cooking out has always been one of my favorite things. Along with being healthy, comes sacrifice. But there are so many better, and tastier options than a greasy burger.

*Insert wonderful black bean burger recipe*

I make these bad boys, I won't be sacrificing anything, and my tummy will thank me for all the added protein and veggies.

8. Lattes

By replacing the water necessary to make a protein shake, use coffee or chai tea instead. I prefer Double Fudge powder for this, but it doubles as coffee creamer, making a nice mocha latte.

9. Fried Chicken

This is not a joke, I swear. There is actually a recipe for protein powder fried chicken! There really is a god, and clearly, he knows even fried chicken lovers, wants their added protein too!

10. Mashed Potatoes

Come Thanksgiving, I dare you to make this mashed potato recipe and watch your family be in awe when you tell them that it is packed with whey protein. You might as well keep a bag of protein powder and go around sprinkling it on all the foods. You can be like the Thanksgiving health fairy!

4 Reasons Hydroflask Is The Superior Water Bottle, This Is Not Up For Debate

We all know the risk of dropping a Hydro Flask.


I am currently on my second Hydro Flask, third lid, and I have entered the sticker phase of owning a defense weapon that holds your water at pleasantly cool temperatures. Since getting my first Hydro Flask I feel as if I have a little companion. I never get thirsty, my pee is a color that my doctor would be proud of, and I get to leave class a lot because I pee so much. I think Hydro Flask is the best reusable water bottle to exist. Heck, of course, it is better than a plastic water bottle, making a Hydro Flask the best water bottle in the world.

1. Picking the correct size and color


Okay, when picking out a Hydro Flask on the company's website, you can customize your own vacuumed insulated stainless steel water bottle. There are 11 different sizes, 3 different lid options, and over 16 different colors. So the options are almost endless.

2. Your water is always fresh, always, I don't even want to argue

Yes, that was me on the floor in fetal position featuring my best friend, Hydro Flask.

We all know that melting moment in the semester. Water is always strapped to my backpack and ready to support me through my struggles. I simply pull out my water bottle drink a little bit of water to replenish from crying over a missed assignment while I email my professor to apologize.

3. Opening a Hydro Flask or dropping it in public brings a lot of attention your way

Opening/closing your hydro flask be like. People turn their heads in class. God forbid you to drop it and make everyone jump and get real quiet. But it sounds a heck of a lot better than the crackling of a plastic water bottle and my water is not cold like Nalgene water bottles.

4. Will get dents but they are just decorations like your stickers

You are going to drop your water bottle and it will dent. But the dent will not prevent your Hydro Flask from keeping your water fresh. It adds character and identity to your water bottle like the stickers you will eventually cover it with.
