Supplement Review: New Monster Ultra Black

Monster releases yet another flavor in their ultra line. New ultra black   Just about 300 miles north of Chicago nestled on eastern shore of Lake Michigan is the “Cherry Capital of the World” Traverse City, MI. Long warm summer days and cool nights cause the black cherries to ripen right around the 4th of July, but you gotta get `em while you can `cause all too soon they`re gone. 

Now, like those famous black beauties, crisp, slightly sweet and for a limited time only; Monster Ultra Black, refreshingly light with zero calories, no sugar and packed with our Monster energy blend. 

Get it while the gettin`s is good…

If this is black cherry flavor it could possibly be the best monster yet!

Now remember that packet is for the entire container! That’s 6g of carbs per container!

Then empty packet into container and mix. If you are making something spicy such as Gen Tso Chicken or Kung Po Chicken or Taco/Chili cheese dip add 2 pinches of cayenne pepper

Then thoroughly mix and enjoy! Great topping for grilled chicken, veggie dip or just plain chips and dip.

Hell you can even top a burger with it!

Enjoy!


Recipe: Deconstructed Upside-Down Low Calorie/Fat Free/Low Carb ETB Protein Cheesecake

Ok here come my usual tweaks!

Philadelphia Fat Free Cream Cheese: calories 120, 16g protein, 8g carbs
Etb (I like cinnamon bun) calories 110, 25g protein
Truvia: calories 30, 12g carbs 0 active
Skim milk: calories 5 if that! It’s only 3tsp

Total with Truvia:
265 calories 41g protein 8g carbs

Total without Truvia:
235 calories 41g protein 8g carbs

That’s a nice dessert! I’m going to try this! Stay tuned!

I hate when people put up fake pics! It will not look anything like the pic above! It’s not cooked! Directions say mix in bowl and eat! So how would it have a brown top? It won’t! So stay tuned!

I would add Traders Joe’s Almond Meal as a crust! (Optional) 1tbsp 40 calories 4 fat 2 carb 2 protein

**Update** January 20th 2014
Ok here we go:

I decided to make 2 options:
One with Low Fat/Carb Free Farmers Cheese (pictured below)

20140120-183524.jpg
And one with Fat Free/Low Carb Cream Cheese (pictured below)

20140120-183722.jpg
Now for the practical application:

Cheese Cake one:

I used Friendship Farmers Cheese:

20140120-183854.jpg

With the farmers cheese it needed the 4tsp of stevia! And 1tbsp milk
For those of you that like a thick creamy not too sugary cheesecake this is for you. Great for a low carb diet? Try 2tsp stevia for low carb diet! 6-8g carbs. 6 if you eliminate almond meal too.

110 etb + 120 fc + 5 milk + 30 Truvia + 40 almond meal

Farmer cheese total (as pictured):

305 calories 11.5g fat 10g carbs 39g Protein

Pros: notice the farmer cheese ingredients! All natural and 2 ingredients!
The container is only 7.5oz instead of 8oz so the calories are close!
Cons: 3
10 calories per serving more

Cheese cake 2:

I used fat free Philadelphia Cream Cheese:

20140120-190540.jpg
Cons: Look at the crap in there!! Half of the crap you can’t pronounce! However; it was much creamier, so much it couldn’t hold it’s shape. It was much sweeter also and only required 2tsp Truvia. If you like a creamy sweet cheesecake this is yours!

110 etb + 40 am + 120 cc + 5 milk + 15 Truvia

Cream Cheese Total (as pictured):
290 calories, 4g fat, 43g protein 14g carbs

20140120-190113.jpg

To have fat free eliminate the almond meal from the Cream Cheese cake!

Oh ps: if you really want a really decadent dessert add: 2tbsp of Pb2! For a healthy Peanut Butter Cheesecake. Follow directions on jar and make into peanut butter (add water)

**Update** January 24th 2014
For all you Cannoli lovers I made a Fat-Free/Low Carb/Low Calorie Chocolate Peanut Butter Ricotta Cheesecake

20140124-100509.jpg
Same ingredients above except:
Trader Joes fat free Ricotta cheese
ETB Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein

110 etb + 135 ricotta + 5 milk + 15 Truvia

Ricotta Total:
265 calories, 0 Fat, 43g protein, 0g Carbs

Ricotta Total (as pictured):
305 calories 4g fat 45g Protein, 6g Carbs


**Update** January 25th 2014
Is cheesecake not your style? How bout a Protein Cannoli or Cheese Blintzes? Check out: Recipe: Low Carb Yummy ETB Pseudo-Pancakes!

Take the ETB Pancake and stuff with this recipe!
For blintzes: use cream or farmer cheese

For cannoli:
use ricotta and if you want to dress it up: add organic dark chocolate chips

For both omit the almond flour crust.

Eat the Bear Protein
Upon careful examination I noticed Truvia doesn’t contain any Stevia at all! A clever marketing ploy!

Today today I am picking up Xylitol from Nutrition zone really cheap!

(That goes for any recipe here)

It’s not as chemical sweet tasting as the nasty Truvia! I like it better!
And less calories 30 for 1tbsp and 0 carbs


Supplement Review: MHP Paleo Protein – Beef & Egg White Protein

The big pending question: Will Paelo Protein (beef & egg) give you the beefy burps like Muscle Meds Carnivor

This is a historic post! It’s our 417th post and currently we have over 99k total views!

But this is where it all started!
The first ever post for Louisjbianco.wordpress.com was: Muscle Meds Carnivor!
And the product sucked! Lol will Paleo Protein redeem the benefit of beef based protein powder in place of Whey!

Stay tuned for the historic review!

**Update**
It tastes like crap!! Yuk! Not as bad as Carnivor, but bad enough for me to stick with ETB and say screw this! Yuk! Luckily no yucky beef tasting burps! It’s just a tad better than Carnivor, but not good enough for me to buy a whole jug of it!!

**Update**
I’m going off on a rant again!
Keep in mind that any review in life is subjective! What one person hates another might love! So, don’t always take my word (or anyone’s) make up your own mind and share it (that’s why there’s a comment section feel free to comment and share on any topic) take movies as an example! If all the critics hate it, I usually like it! Lol
