I’ve managed to slowly get through to my parents about the importance of them eating a healthier diet (I’ve only been a Personal Trainer on hand since forever!!), so my gorgeous Mum asked if I’d teach her how to do some baking.
Pah ! What a joke, I really am not that good a cook and my Mum is amazing!
Quick detour of the blog but after shopping in Swansea for some ingredients we both visited the local farmers market in Pennard ( that’s in the gorgeous Gower near Swansea City Centre where I live) and the butcher there was telling us about the Gower Lamb he’s got and how nice it is ‘braised’.
I’m like ‘how do you braise?’
Both my Mum and the Butcher rolled their eyes. ‘Ah, you youngsters!’ said the butcher.
‘Yes I know’ said my Mum,
‘Ah, I’m still officially classed a youngster’ I thought getting all wrapped up in what I invented as a compliment until I sharply realised I needed to pull this back and stick up for myself.
‘Well, I’m actually giving my Mum a cooking lesson now!’ said I
‘Oh yeah!! Braising is real cooking!’, she said to me before turning to the butcher and informing him ‘She’s teaching me all this new protein stuff!!’.
They both rolled their eyes again.
Ah, it was nice talking to the butcher though!
So…back to the blog…
One of the healthy ‘new protein stuff’ recipes we created was this Gluten Free, Protein Walnut Bread:
Gluten Free Walnut Protein Bread
2 Scoops Unflavoured Whey Protein
1 Scoop Coconut Flour
2 Egg Whites
½ cup chopped Walnuts
1 tspn Gluten Free Baking Powder
¼ tspn Salt
Mix all the ingredients together with a wooden spoon or hand blender and pour into a silicone loaf tray. Bake in the oven on 160 degrees for approx 35-40 minutes
Leave to cool and slice
You could also pour the mixture into individual silicone muffin cups.
Also, be adventurous with different flavours. Instead of walnuts try sundried tomato, olive or even chilli!
Keep Fit n Fab!
