Meal Replacement Bread Recipe ver 3

It’s time again to make some changes to my shake recipe, but it’s no longer a shake recipe!  As I’ve changed it so now I’m using it to bake bread :)  I was looking at the recipe…and it seemed to be getting weirder and weirder for a shake recipe, but after a little research I found it was perfect for a bread recipe!  It has various ingredients that are flour replacements, an egg, and applesauce is a apparently a good replacement for butter. So really the only difference is how I cook it.

So the changes to make this into bread are to ground up the apples into apple sauce and then cook it in the microwave for 5 minutes and that’s about it :)  To make sure it stays moist you need to put a cup of water in with it in the microwave. You can also add in some baking powder to make it nice and fluffy.

With this new version I’m looking to remove carbs from the recipe and bad macros to make it more healthy and better for weight loss.  I wrote up an article in the past on macro-nutrients which is my basis for making these changes.  I’m also changing back to Optimum Nutrition protein powder so it tastes a lot better :X  It does make it a bit more expensive, but I’m getting too tired of the chalky rice protein.

At this point I think I’ve lost all faith in Fooducate so I’m removing it.  After finding this review of dymatise protein and this review of the same exact product.  I looked over the nutrition facts and ingredients, and they’re identical.  The image of the product as well.  So why is one entry a C and the other a B???  I have made thoughts of my making my own food rating system that’s completely automatic, and seeing results like these show up in fooducate make me think their more human method just isn’t that reliable.  One result that’s really vexed me on there is how they can give Tina’s Burritos a B, I just can’t believe that a .80 frozen burrito is better for you than protein powder.

I’m also considering ordering some Citrus aurantium powder, since it contains Synpehrine which is an active ingredient in Shred JYM.  And I’m also thinking about trying lemon peel and peppermint.

  1. Orange peel
  2. Lemon peel
  3. Peppermint

So my recommended spices would end up something like this:

  1. Cinnamon
  2. Matcha Powder
  3. Licorice Root
  4. Chia Seeds
  5. Orange Peel
  6. Lemon Peel
  7. Peppermint

But I’m thinking of saving that for the next round, at this point I’m feeling like there’s not a lot of more advancements I can make while sticking to my original goals.  To make it better for weight loss I’d need to remove more carbs, but all the carbs are from the fruit and vegetable ingredients – which having those was kind of the whole point in the first place. The only ingredient in here that’s not an appetite suppressant is the pea meal, but after doing a lot of research there’s not many vegetables that are as low carb as the pea flower and none that are as cheap.  So I might be reaching a final version :)
