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.

How to Build Strength and Muscle with Progressive Calisthenics

Today’s guest post is offered up by some long-time friends of MDA, Al Kavadlo and Danny Kavadlo. I’m excited to share their expertise with the Primal community here. This year I wrote the foreword for their new book, Get Strong , which was just released. 

If you’re into Primal living, chances are you’re a minimalist when it comes to exercise. In our busy world, we all want to make good use of the time we allot to our training. Additionally, we Primal devotees know that many of the fancy machines we may encounter at the local globo-gym are not needed for building real-world strength.

As Mark Sisson accurately says, you need to “lift heavy things” in order to get strong, but there is no need to overcomplicate the issue. Barbells, kettlebells and dumbbells are viable options, but you can keep it even simpler than that and still get very strong. Yes, you need to push your muscles with resistance training in order to affect growth in them, but your own body weight provides all the resistance you’ll ever need. You don’t have to rely on external weights in order to build strength and muscle. Calisthenics exercises generally require nothing more than the floor beneath your feet, a wall, a bench or a bar. Sometimes it seems too simple to be true, but I assure you that one can get extremely strong with nothing but bodyweight training.

Many believe that once you hit double-digit numbers on exercises like push-ups and pull-ups, an external load must be added in order to continue building strength and muscle. This is simply not true. If you know how to manipulate leverage, there is no need to ever add weights to your workouts. Once you understand the underlying principles behind progressive calisthenics, you can build a lifetime of strength with nothing more than your own body weight.

Here are three simple ways you can vary the intensity of any calisthenics exercise without adding weight or requiring the use of a gym.

1. Change the Weight-to-Limb Ratio

By adjusting the distribution of your bodyweight, you can increase or decrease the resistance on many calisthenics exercises. To illustrate this, compare a push-up with your feet on an elevated surface to a push-up with all your limbs on the ground. Due to the change in leverage, there is much more weight in the chest, arms and shoulders in the former than in the latter, rendering it more difficult. Conversely, a push-up with the hands elevated (instead of the feet) will place less demand on the muscles of the upper body, making the exercise better suited to beginners.

Furthermore, you can take this principle to the next level when you remove a contact point entirely: A one-legged squat will always require more strength than a squat performed on both legs. By completely eliminating one point of contact, you’ve doubled the weight loaded onto the individual leg. Fortunately, there are many steps in between the two, such as split squats and other asymmetrical
