How No Yolking™ 100% Egg White Protein Powder can help your family stay fuelled all summer long
By: Kerry Foreman, Owner and Founder of Muskoka Mornings®
The summer season seems to fly by as we pack our days full of activities, family gatherings, and various events. Muskoka Mornings is here to help you create quick, protein-packed meals and snacks to take on the go. Ensuring we are fuelled up with healthy meals will keep the kids feeling fuller for longer, helping us all get through busy summer days with ease!
Fuelling Up With Protein
Fuelling up with protein will keep you feeling your best all summer long. One study looking at protein intake and energy levels suggests that a high-protein diet has major benefits for weight loss and metabolic health. This is partly because protein reduces the level of ghrelin (the hunger hormone), keeping you feeling fuller for longer. This is not only helpful with weight loss but is a great way to keep your blood sugar levels balanced on the busiest of summer days. As the weather gets nicer, we all find ourselves getting more exercise whether we are hiking, working out, or running around doing yard work. During these action-packed days, increasing your protein intake can help keep or increase muscle mass and strength thus helping with your endurance. Protein is essentially the building block for all muscles so it is crucial to get enough in your diet. Oftentimes, when we are more active than “normal”, we forget to increase our protein intake. No Yolking™ 100% Egg White Protein Powder is an easy and quick way to add protein into any drink, meal, or snack after exercising.
Protein-Packed Meals On-the-Go
One of the best ways to take protein on the go is to add it into your favorite coffee or smoothie in the morning. If you’re anything like me, I am often running out the door on an empty stomach but always have a coffee or alternative in hand. On these busy mornings, I follow our No Yolking™ Protein Ice Latte recipe to ensure I feel full until lunch. Not only does this help me increase my protein intake, but best of all, this drink is sugar-free! I also like to make up a bunch of our 4-Seed Protein Bars when I have free time and store them away for those busy work weeks when I don’t have time to make a full meal. It only takes 15 minutes to make these bars and our recipe makes 16 bars — more than enough for a healthy snack each day of the week.
Another great portable make-ahead snack is our Double Chocolate Banana Protein Muffins. These gluten-free, sugar-free and vegan muffins are packed with protein and keep me full for hours. They are a quick and easy snack to grab in a rush in the morning!
Protein-Packed Meals For Kids
If you have kids always running from practice to practice or event to event it’s important to have healthy meals and snacks to keep them full and energized without the sugar spikes! Try starting the day with our Fluffy Gluten-Free Protein Pancakes. These easy-to-make pancakes only require three ingredients plus whatever toppings your kiddos love. Next, for lunch, try our Egg White Protein Wraps. These wraps are easy to stuff full of veggies and ensure a nutritious meal for both you and the kids. I like to add avocado, tomato, and red peppers into mine for added nutrition and the delicious taste! Finally, for dinner, taste test our Gluten-Free Egg White Protein Pizza Crust. This pizza crust recipe allows you to make one big family pizza or multiple small pizzas with custom toppings. This is a great time to get the kids involved and have them add their own toppings and personalize the pizza to their liking! This is sure to be a big hit with the whole family.
