Supplement Review: Battle of the Protein Poofs! MPA ISO Poofs

MPA Iso Poofs is the perfect snack or cereal for anyone who enjoys satisfying a sweet craving without sabotaging their dieting efforts. In fact, you can conveniently incorporate MPA Iso Poofs into your nutrition plan as it would be a sufficient animal protein or whey protein shake replacement.

I created MPA Iso Poofs to be as low in dietary fat and carbohydrates as possible. I wanted to create something that would be interchangeable with your standard whey protein shakes that people use in diet plans regularly.

Let’s face it, strict dieting to get into amazing shape takes strong discipline, rigid dieting practices, and the mental toughness to endure oftentimes a bland and monotonous nutrition protocol. MPA Iso Poofs allows you to keep to your high protein, low fat, and low carbohydrate program perfectly while enjoying something that satisfies your “sweet tooth” or sugar-filled craving!

MPA Iso Poofs can be enjoyed as a delicious cereal, accompanied with your choice of fat-free milk, or your preferred milk replacement i.e., (Almond, coconut, cashew milk etc…). You could also use pasteurized liquid egg whites as a “milk substitute” as well.

MPA Iso Poofs can also be enjoyed simply as a snack, eaten dry like you would a bowl of popcorn or any “finger food” snack.

Finally you can truly enjoy and consume something sweet, delicious, yet nutritious every day on your strict diet plan without sabotaging your progress. Don’t be fooled by other supposed “diet friendly” food/snack products, such as chips, popcorn, bars, etc… Read their nutrition facts and while one might be “low in carbs” — it will be higher in dietary fat, and contain more oils than you should feel comfortable dieting with.

I am very particular and picky with my own nutritional needs and MPA Iso Poofs get’s the MPA stamp of approval — so you can feel confident enjoying them on your own diet.

Features & details

  • Less Than 1g of Sugar Per Serving
  • Less Than 1g of Fat Per Serving
  • 19g of Protein Per Serving
  • High Protein Cereal or Dry Snack

Recipe: homemade low carb Buffalo Chicken Salad

Ingredients:

Chicken: grilled, smoked or rotisserie

Celery (diced)

Gorgonzola blue cheese or any blue cheese

And Franks red hot (buffalo wing sauce)

Directions:

As most of you know I got an awesome Bluetooth smoker

And I have been smoking 3 chickens a week for my diet.

12-14hrs. I just pour a little mustard bbq sauce on the skin and rub it in and boom let it cook and it’s done.

Pull all the meat off when it’s hot and it just falls off the bone!

Once you have your buckets of meat take some add the ingredients above:

Celery, buffalo wing sauce, and blue cheese and then toss in a closed container! Boom that’s it!

serve over cauliflower rice and Enjoy!


Recipe: Low Carb, Low Fat General Tso’s Turkey


Gen Tso’s Ground Turkey

Ingredients:

3lbs ground turkey 

2 red peppers (any color)

1 bag riced Cauliflower 

Mushrooms (I used fresh baby Bella’s this time)

Olive oil 

1/4 cup Braggs liquid aminos 


1/2 cup rice vinegar (no sodium no sugar added) 


1 spice packet of Gen Tsos chicken 


Meat seasoning optional: 

Cayenne pepper

Black pepper 

Chipotle pepper

And I topped it with jalepeno pepper flakes 

Directions:

Pour olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan a little extra is ok! 

Brown the meat and season it then drain offf the excess oil into the original container and throw out! Don’t clog your sink drain! 

Then add the remaining ingredients and stir thouroughly! 

Cover and cook on 5 for 10mins 

Add the jalepeno flakes garnish 

Remove from heat and allow to cool a little and then enjoy! It’s that easy! 


For the authentic Asian feel you can top with hot sauce and drizzle sirarcha mayo! 

**Update** July 2nd this time they only had Broccoli and Cauliflower rice mix, which is great because I love both!  


Recipe: Low carb, low fat, Taco Turkey Sola

This is a recipe given to me from female bodybuilder Women’s Physique competitor Caridad Sola! 


Ingredients: 

Olive oil 

3lbs ground turkey 

1 bag of Riced Cauliflower 

2 red bell peppers (any color will do)

1 packet of 30% less taco seasoning 

1 8oz can of tomato sauce 

Optional: 

Mushrooms

I added: 

Cayenne pepper 

Chipotle pepper 

Black pepper


My store wanted to charge $5.95 for riced cauliflower and this bag of diced up was $2.99 so I went with the better buy! 




You can go fresh mushrooms, I used can because they last longer and I will have them on hand. Make sure you buy the no sodium added! 

Directions:
Chop up peppers and mushrooms if you have to and set aside. 

Pour olive oil into a deep pan to cover the bottom, don’t worry if you pour too much the extra benefits will be good for you! 

Brown the turkey meat and pour off the extra fat back into the original container. Don’t pour it down the drain! You will eventually clog it! I cooked it on a 5 heat

Add the remaining ingredients cook on high for 10mins and then turn to 2 and simmer for 20mins. 

At first it will look like there isn’t enough liquid, but once you cook it, the juices from the pepper will release and add to the tomato sauce! 


Serve and enjoy! 

If you want to get shredded add this to your diet regimine and work your butt off in the gym! 

**Update** 1 hr later

I made a second batch and it came out much better! The only thing I did different was brown the meat with the additional spices. I still waited to add the taco spice packet after the meat was browned and the other ingredients were added. 


Spice it up! 

Try it you will like it! 

**Update** June 25th 2017 

This is the riced Cauliflower


This is the final dish


The riced Cauliflower is more money in my store. The benefit is in the cook time! 

10 mins on high and 5mins to simmer after the meat is brown because you don’t need the extra time to make the cauliflower bits to get soft. The riced Cauliflower cooks really fast. The extra 5 mins is to make sure the peppers are cooked and the juices released. 

Check it out try it both ways see what you like best! You can also grab a whole head of Cauliflower and pulse it in a food processor/vitamix for the ultra money saver! If you have one. 

**Update** July 2nd this time they only had Broccoli and Cauliflower rice mix, which is great because I love both!  


Recipe: Grilled Chicken Bacon and Avocado Salad

2015/01/img_4907.png

Prep: 15 minutes

Serves: 6-8 (Depends how you serve it. It’ll go farther on sandwiches.)

6 organic chicken breasts, grilled (organic chicken breasts typically are quite a bit smaller than the huge, non-organic because of the lack of hormones. So keep that in mind)

5-6 green onions, diced

1 package bacon

2 avocados, cubed

2-3 tablespoons organic or homemade mayo

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
-Preheat oven to 400 and bake bacon on a cookie sheet until slightly crispy. When finished, transfer to a lined plate and blot excess grease. Finely chop.

-Grill the chicken (I used garlic, salt, pepper and onion. Pretty basic.) and let rest. Cube when cooled.

-Dice green onions and cube the avocado. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and add mayo. Start small and add more if you need to. I don’t put very much at all, as you can tell in the photo. Just enough to give it a little moisture. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with sandwich buns or alone.

This is also really yummy leftovers, so it can be eaten at any temperature. Warm, cold or room temp.

-akitchencafe.com

As you know I like to take healthy Pinterest recipes and make them healthier!

I have a couple great tweaks!

1. bake the chicken you can add whatever spices to it to make you happy.

2. (Tweak) instead of bacon use turkey bacon. I used applewood farms

3. I diced up scallions and (tweak) I added fresh cilantro

4. Homemade Mayo or organic mayo is still mayo! You can dress up a turd it’s still a turd! (Tweak) I made a healthy dressing! Take a cup of plain greek yogurt add in powered ranch dressing.

2015/01/img_4909.jpg

2015/01/img_4908.png
I then added a dash of garlic powder and a dash of cayenne pepper for taste. Mix and add as needed to the recipe.

5. Cube up 2 avocados.

Mix everything up in a big bowl and use a big slotted spoon it’s much easier to mix that way!

Then I am going to make a healthy salad/spinach salad, add some vegetables and fresh mozzarella then top with the avocado chicken bacon salad mix and drizzle it with fig balsamic glaze.

Viola you are done and ready to enjoy with no guilt!

Stay tuned for the practical application!

2015/01/img_4906.jpg
My wife made sliders

2015/01/img_4910.jpg
I made a salad with mozzarella, I finished the ricotta Salata, I chopped up pickles, red pepper, used my ghost pepper hot sauce and drizzled it with the balsamic glaze.

2015/01/img_4911.jpg
It was delicious!!

Enjoy!

They give the nutritional value but I think it’s for the whole recipe with the 12 tortillas so it is skewed! Eliminate the Tortillas and who would eat 12 tortillas in one sitting, even I wouldn’t do that on a cheat day!

CHOCOLATE AND RASPBERRY CHIA PUDDING
Rating: 5

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 2 servings

Ingredients:

6 Tbsp chia seeds
2 cups coconut milk beverage or any non-dairy milk
6 large squares dark chocolate (yield about 2 Tbsp melted + 4 Tbsp grated chocolate to decorate)
½ cup fresh or frozen raspberries + a few raspberries to decorate
Instructions:

In a small pot melt about 4 chocolate squares over low heat (should yield about 2 tablespoon melted chocolate). Add 1 cup of the coconut milk beverage or your favourite non-dairy milk and stir until combined making sure the mixture doesn’t become too hot. Turn off the heat and let it cool to the room temperature.
In the meantime, add the raspberries and 1 cup of coconut milk beverage or your favourite non-dairy milk to a blender and puree until smooth. Pour the mixture into a jar or a glass container and add 3 tablespoons of chia seeds. Mix well until all the chia seeds are covered with the liquid. Cover with a tight lid and place in the refrigerator.
Once the chocolate mixture is cool, pour it into a jar or a glass container and add 3 tablespoons of the chia seeds. Mix well until all the chia seeds are covered with the liquid. Cover with a tight lid and place in the refrigerator. Keep the chia seeds in the fridge over night or for at least 8 hours.
Once ready to prepare the pudding, check the consistency of the chocolate chia. If you find it too thick add 2 or 3 tablespoons of the milk of your choice and mix well.
Divide the chocolate chia in half and place each half into 2 small bowls or dessert glasses. Divide the raspberry chia in half and place on top of the chocolate chia.
Grate the remaining 2 squares of the dark chocolate using a grater or shave it with a knife. To decorate the chia pudding, add about 2 tablespoons of the shaved chocolate and a few raspberries to each dessert glass.
Notes:

This dessert keeps well in the fridge for up to 10 hours. This recipe makes 2 puddings about 1 cup each. You can also make 4 mini-puddings about 1/2 cup each.
-mariaushakova.com

This looks delicious and amazing! I would add protein powder! To make it protein rich Raspberry Chocolate Chia Pudding!

I will definitely try this!

The best part about not being vegan is it can take this delicious recipe and add any protein I want! Do I want a quick uptake? Then I’ll use whey. Do I want a slow uptake? I’ll use casein. Do I want to keep it vegan? I can use plant/rice/hemp protein. Do I want to keep it organic grass fed? Then I’ll use grass fed organic whey etc…

The recipe is open to your lifestyle!

20140420-014300.jpg

Recipe provided by Charlie Kwok

Pb & J Pancakes
Serves 1 Person, takes 00:05 to prep and 00:05 to cook.

Not absurdly high in fat, bit high in flavour. Sugar-free, dairy-free, high protein, and not too complicated, the hardest part is waiting for the pancakes to cook.

Ingredients

1/2 fl oz Skim or Nonfat Milk (0.5% or Less Butterfat)
1/4 cup, sauce Applesauce Unsweetened
2 large Egg White
2 serving (serving = 1 tbsp) Wal-Mart Sugar Free Strawberry Jelly
1 serving (serving = 1 packet) Whole Foods Market Stevia
1/2 serving (serving = 1 tsp) Kroger Baking Powder
1/2 serving (serving = 1 container) Stonyfield Farm Oikos Organic Nonfat Vanilla Greek Yogurt (4 oz)
1 serving (serving = 2 tbsp) Bell Plantation PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter
1 serving (serving = 1 tbsp) Now Foods Psyllium Husk Powder
1 serving (serving = 5-8 drops) Sweet Leaf Liquid Stevia
1 serving (serving = 1/3 cup) Arrowhead Mills Organic Oat Flour
Directions

PB & J Pancakes
Ingredients:
40 g oat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1-2 tbsp sweetener
1/4 c applesauce
1 tbsp psyllium husk
2 egg whites
2 tbsp jam/jelly
2 tbsp peanut butter (I used 2 tbsp PB2, bit of stevia and salt, and 1.5 tbsp water)

Directions:
1. Combine all ingredients except jam.
2. Swirl in jam and cook over medium heat for 2-3 mins per side.
3. Serve with cream (3 tbsp Greek yogurt, 1 tbsp milk, 5 drops stevia) and more pb mixed with milk. Enjoy.

20140420-014316.jpg

I think I am going to change this up with my ETB PANCAKE RECIPE and make the low carb cottage cheese pancakes instead of applesauce and oat flour. Instead of Stevia and Truvia; I will use straight Xylitol.
2tbsp psyllium fiber husks
The rest will be the same:

**Note**
This recipe can also be made using Mancakes! Just mix in the PB2 and swirl in the jelly and smother in pb2 sauce and cream! Much easier then making from scratch!

Recipe: Mini Egg White Omelets

20140330-175850.jpg

This recipe is great and easy and the possibilities are limitless!

Use the Misto Oil Sprayer (See review on this site) to spay your non-stick pan with healthy Extra Virgin Olive Oil to get the Healthy Omegas, do not use sprays like Pam they contain no healthy fats and chemical propellants.

Then pour in egg whites up to 1/3 of the muffin tin high, then add your fillings

Today I used 1/8 of an Avocado in each cup (2 cups is one portion) for more healthy Omegas and 3 small cubes of a low sodium pre-cooked ham steak for extra protein and taste. Then I put in a dash of Cayenne pepper for Capsicum to speed the metabolism. I was going to put in a little Spinach in each, for healthy greens, but I ran out.

Brahman Whey Protein

I can’t wait to try this later tonight stay tuned!!

Ok; well…

The Smell is non-existent
the mixability is 9/10 a little grainy residue in glass
the taste is 8/10 a tad better than Sweet Purity Organics and Protein 17. (no aftertaste)

I can’t wait to see if it works with the added spices. They should have added a tad more Cinnamon and Cardamom.

One thing I don’t like is there is no scoop inside. The directions say 3 heaping tablespoons, so if you don’t have one handy you have to go find one.
I use this as an additional protein serving at night 2hrs post workout and I use 2tbsp, so it will last longer.

I tried mixing with my oatmeal today, but It had almost zero taste in my oatmeal and I don’t like plain oatmeal!

Future Post Coming Soon: myoatmeal.com when it arrives I will add all of my natural proteins recently reviewed to the mix with the exception of Whey Natural USA as it is not to be heated.

Look for it! the results from all the tests will be there!

**Update** March 24th 2014
I wish they made a Chocolate with natural cocoa and what is organic Vanilla flavor? Is it real Vanilla bean?

Add 2 tbsp Sweet Spreads
2tbsp Youfresh Naturals or 2tbsp Barney Butter or 1 and 1!

I would do the Choco coconut Youfresh Naturals to give it texture and Barney Butter raw chia to get the benefits of the chia!

Recipe: Low Carb Spicy Beef Stuffed Peppers

20140214-183433.jpg

It’s not easy finding low carb meals that are super easy, tasty and super healthy!

I find that peppers are an easy portable, edible bowl! And they are healthy and nutritious!

Get a bunch of bell peppers preferable red or orange! Whatever’s on sale! And hollow them out. Unlike the egg peppers you don’t have to go crazy hollowing them out for extra space, because it doesn’t matter if these over flow!

Ingredients:

Couple packages of the Leanest Ground Beef you can find preferably Black Angus!

A bunch of sliced mushrooms

A couple Jalapeños

Braggs liquid aminos

Fresh grated Ginger

Fresh/Minced Garlic

Cayenne Pepper

Chili Powder

Couple tbsps rice wine vinegar

And whatever spices you want to add:
Cumin, Coriander, Garam Masala, various Curry, Cardamom, Tumeric etc (remember the healthy healing oatmeal post)

Directions:
Spray Skillet with Olive/Coconut Oil
Combine all ingredients in Skillet
Stir fry in Skillet until the meat is done and stuff mixture in the peppers!

Eat and enjoy!

Stay tuned for practical application!

**Hint**
I have some wasabi sesame seeds 😉

I checked the 93% ground beef and the fat content was still super high like 12g so I opted for the meatloaf mix of beef, pork and veal with 5g of fat!

I forgot the jalapeños so I doubled the chili and cayenne pepper

They came out amazing!!

You have to try this!

Recipe: Homemade ETB Low Calorie/Low Carb/Low Fat Peanut Butter Cups

20140129-233810.jpg

Get a nonstick tray or cupcake papers
Take 3 scoops protein powder
I used 2 scoops Protizyme by Metabolic Nutrition: chocolate cake and 1 peanut butter cookie (because I didn’t have ETB Chocolate)
6 tbsp of 0% plain Greek Yogurt.
3tbsp organic cocoa powder
5tbsp of water

8tbsp of PB2
6tbsp water

Mix the Protein Powder, Yogurt, cocoa powder and water in a bowl and make sure it’s thin enough to pour may need a little bit more water.

Take the tray and spray it with nonstick spray just in case!

Pour a little bit of the mixture on the bottom of each spot.

Then in a separate bowl mix the PB2
And water till it’s thin enough to pour and then pour all mixture on top of the started chocolate

Then cover the PB2 with the remaining chocolate mixture.

Put in the freezer for 15min or until done and enjoy!

Keep frozen for the best taste!

Pictured size took 45min to freeze and almost a full jar of PB2!

**Note**
You might want to add a little Xylitol to the Chocolate mix or use Vanilla yogurt instead of plain.

They came out good, but would have been healthier and tastier if I had Chocolate ETB!

Mix well and place in Freezer 30-60 min

My Tweak: Throw out the nasty Chemically egg beaters and replace with: Any Flavor Muscle Egg! For Cinnamon Bun Ice Cream use one cup of Organic Muscle Egg!
