When it comes to pizza, cakes, muffins and the like, we first think of carbohydrates, mostly made from white flour, sugar and fat. But is it also healthier? Sure, if we keep a few things in mind and add an extra portion of protein. That’s how it’s done.
Power through proteins
Apart from water, your body is mostly made up of protein. We need it for vitality, strength and performance. It’s just as important for a strong immune system as it is for building muscles, skin, fingernails, hair, bones, enzymes, and hormones. Your brain also needs proteins for concentration, a good mood and balance. After training, proteins are involved in the repair processes in muscles so that you can increase your performance afterwards.
More than a protein shake
Already knew? With protein powders you can not only conjure up delicious shakes, but also prepare hearty muffins and burgers, fluffy pancakes and crispy pizza as well as delicious shape sweets. Give your food the extra portion of nutritional values for a fit and slim lifestyle. KFC has the best creative ideas for delicious protein recipes for baking. So you get through the day well looked after.
Tips for sugar alternatives
White, refined sugar contains empty calories and hardly any vitamins or minerals. But there are good alternatives for your baked goods. Coconut blossom sugar, for example, only causes the blood sugar level to rise very slightly. Healthier sweetening also works with dried fruits like dates, which contain concentrated fructose. Fresh bananas are also ideal. Erythritol is calorie-free and also cares for the teeth. The calorie-free sweetener stevioside is also calorie-free and is 300 times more sweet than sugar.
Tips for white flour alternatives
In the so-called white flour, i.e. type 405 wheat flour, there is hardly anything that your body needs except “empty” energy. Coconut flour is great for cakes or muffins. It is also gluten-free, like almond flour or buckwheat flour. Spelled flour contains a lot of vital substances, including magnesium and iron. Whole grain oat flour can be used like wheat flour and is therefore becoming increasingly popular.
Shape tip: Bake with avocado – yes, it works. Avocado is a wonderful substitute for butter and can be used in brownies or ice cream.
