Gluten Free Protein Pancakes

Many of us don’t get enough protein and we all too often cave into our indulgence of our favorite comfort foods like pancakes. But if we get creative we can knock them both out of the park and get plenty of healthy protein plus indulge in our favorites all at the same time.

Why Do We Need Protein Anyway?

Proteins are the main building blocks of the body and comprise of strings of molecules called amino acids. They’re used to make muscles, tendons, organs and skin. Proteins are also used to make enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters and various tiny molecules that serve important functions. Without protein, life as we know it would not be possible.

Amino acids and peptides (single or small chains of amino acids) are absorbed into the bloodstream and delivered to parts around your body where they are needed, either to make new proteins or to be used to release energy.

The Primary Jobs of Proteins: 1.)  Repair and Maintain 2.) Provide Energy 3.) Control Hormones 4.) Provide Enzymes 5.) Transport and Store Molecules 6.) Form Antibodies…. that is quit the list!

Best and Worst Proteins:

You really should be careful of your protein sources and the quality of the source. Why is this? Well, I learned over the years that animal fat is really good for our health and it really matters what the animals are fed. Conventional meats from cows, pigs and chickens are fed feed which contain soy, corn, and grains to fatten them up quicker. The problem is these grains denature the quality of their own bodies. Feed is not what nature intended and thus when we eat the meat by animals fed this way we are now consuming, not only denatured foods but also additional hormones and antibiotics. This causes tons of metabolic and oxidative issues with our bodies leading us to disease and major health issues.

EAT AVOID
Grass Fed Beef
Pastured Chicken
Wild Salmon
Fresh Tuna
Pastured Eggs
Greek Yogurt
Why Protein Isolate (Be picky!!)
Nuts and Seeds
Grain Fed Beef
Grain Fed and/or Regular Frozen Chicken
Farmed Salmon
Fish Sticks and other Breaded Sources
Egg Substitutes or Regular Eggs
Low Fat and Artificially Sweetened Yogurt
100% Whey Concentrate
Soy Protein

At the end of the day you should be extremely cautious to make sure you get “enough” protein but also of where your protein comes from. If you struggle eating enough then using a supplement such as BioTrust protein powder is perfect. NOT ALL PROTEIN POWDERS ARE CREATED EQUAL!! You may need to read it again, because that statement is extremely important!

Ingredient List and Nutritional Labels

BioTrust Low Carb is made with natural ingredients. That means you won’t find any artificial colors, flavors, and most importantly artificial sweeteners… ever.

Instead, the blend is sweetened naturally with stevia extract and a naturally sweet form of fiber called inulin. In fact, BioTrust Low Carb packs 4 grams of high quality fiber per serving and only 1 gram of sugar per 24 grams of protein! It’s unlikely you’ll find that anywhere else in the protein market, but to be honest, we’re just getting started.

BioTrust Low Carb is also sourced from cows not treated with the genetically engineered growth hormones rBGH, and rBST. We don’t know about you, but it’s certainly our goal to avoid putting unnatural hormones into our bodies whenever possible.

Now, if you’re wondering if a particular protein product is rBGH- and rBST-free, here’s the simple way to know:

If the label doesn’t say rBGH- and rBST-free, it’s NOT!

Moreover, they go to great lengths to ensure the delicate proteins used in BioTrust Low Carb were, and are, carefully processed at low temperatures, preserving their bioavailability and natural state, unlike the vast majority of protein products out there loaded with “cheap,” denatured proteins that result from cheaper, high-heat processing.

They include whey protein concentrate at a 25% ratio due to a number of its unique properties, and they also include the more expensive, exotic proteins in their blend like slow-digesting Micellar Casein (the cream of the crop of all proteins), Whey Protein Isolate, and Milk Protein Concentrate at the same 25% ratio, to give you exactly what we’re telling you we’re giving you.

At BioTrust they stand for everything
a supplement company should, but few do –
honesty, integrity, and trust.

Finally, one of the coolest “above and beyond” things they have done with BioTrust Low Carb is the use of a brand-new special enzyme called ProHydrolase®.

ProHydrolase is a proprietary, research-backed blend of specialized enzymes designed to dramatically enhance the ability of the body to break down, absorb, and utilize whey protein.

In fact, the latest research shows that ProHydrolase is more than twice as effective at delivering whey protein to muscles than any other enzyme used in other protein products – and we can say that because BioTrust Low Carb is the very first protein product on the market to have access to this new breakthrough enzyme blend.

 

And if for some strange reason you don’t love it, you’re always protected by their 1 year 100% Satisfaction Money-back Guarantee, so there’s nothing to lose apart from your most stubborn body fat.

Adaptogen Effects: American and Asian Ginseng

I’ve been using adaptogens for quite some time, but in the last year I’ve been experimenting a little more with them. You may have caught my mention of a few adaptogenic varieties in one version of my daily big ass salad  (not for a flavor hit). I’ve also briefly highlighted  ashwagandha and holy basil, and I’ve always been a big believer (and user) of Rhodiola rosea for  normalizing stress response .

All well and good. But what’s the backstory on adaptogens? What is there to gain? And what about the other options? 

What Are Adaptogens?

The essence of adaptogens, natural substances that help the body adapt to various stress inputs , is this: they don’t make a name for themselves for the specific ailments that they might resolve, but for their ability to restore balance and banish stress from the body and mind. They’re the golden boys of holistic medicine, purely because they are themselves holistic.

Let’s dive into some real-world scenarios. Your average functional herb—let’s say ginger —has a finite number of beneficial functions when ingested. Those functions might include boosting digestion, relieving nausea, aiding immunity, and fighting infection. All very commendable outcomes.

But then let’s look at an adaptogenic herb. When ingested, the pathways on which it acts within the body are virtually infinite—by its very nature, it works to alleviate stress of all kinds, the chronic version of which we know is often the root cause of most diseases and common ailments. 

It’s an exclusive club. In their comprehensive volume on adaptogens , David Winston and Steven Maimes set out three key requirements for a herb to attain that all-important adaptogen badge:

1. An adaptogen is nontoxic to its recipient.

2. An adaptogen produces a nonspecific response in the body—an increase in the power of resistance against multiple stressors including physical, chemical, or biological agents.

3. An adaptogen has a normalizing influence on physiology, irrespective of the direction of change from physiological norms caused by the stressor.

What’s in It for You?

Stress is all around us , but chronic stress does us no favors

Taking our cue from Grok, most of what we do is all about alleviating that stress by both traditional and modern means. We clean up our diet to reduce inflammatory stress and avoid toxic stress, we simplify and streamline our lifestyle to minimize emotional stress .

That’s all very well, but there’s only so much you can sidestep stressful circumstances. Even the most avid Primal enthusiast is still going to come up against any number of difficulties and demands over the course of a day, and it’s for this reason that we might turn to adaptogens.

Back in 1958, the idea of adaptogens was  first introduced to the scientific world (having been present in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years) as substances that increase the “state of nonspecific resistance” to stress. By their very nature, adaptogens are generalists—their role is to protect against stressors of all kind and to maintain a state of homeostasis within the body. This makes them very
