I got myself a second job yesterday and I’ve been pretty busy these last days. This blog does not focus on my life so therefore I try to avoid writing about my personal life (not because it’s some sort of a secret, it’s just not exciting enough to be mentioned more than once or twice). However, I’m pretty stoked to tell you that I’m lucky to work as a waitress at a Japanese fusion/sushi restaurant where food is really amazing. It’s really nothing else than a ordinary waitress position but I get to eat my way through the whole menu and learn so much from the cooks that I’m super excited about working there. So look out because more Asian influences are coming your way.
My thougts about Whey Impact from Myprotein.
This blog makes it possible for me to recommend you good products and for you to discover cheap ingredients that improves your dieting.. Some of the products that appear on my blog are sponsored but only the products I find really useful and worth the money are shown. This time I received a couple of products from Myprotein. Although I haven’t been able to try all the products, I’m really satisfied with the products I’ve tried from the site so far. One of the products I received was their whey impact protein powder. Hands down the best value for money I’ve found so far. It’s a fairly cheep whey powder (whey is the most commonly used among fitness geeks, because it’s a water–soluble milk protein) that comes in over 50 different flavors.
The powder itself is rich in flavor, has a intense smell and a clear taste of toffee. It behaves perfectly in baked goods and even though I used quite a bit in my cupcakes their texture didn’t come out “chalkboardy” at all. Another plus is that it dissolves in water really quickly which is rather good because who likes lumps in their shake? Although I’m fairly pleased with it there was two down sides: there was no scoop attached and the taste might be a little to sweet for some people (so watch how much sweetener you add to your whey creation!) However, consider the price this is a great protein when you’re looking for no-frill powder without excess amino acids that actually does the job and tastes good.
So either if it’s your first time using a protein powder or if you’re down with the alternatives; Myprotein offers a good variety of choices for a very low price. I’ve only tried the toffee one but I’ve read some good reviews about lemon cheesecake and apple crumble and custard as well so I’ll be trying one of these next time.

If you’re not sure which one to buy I higly recommend sampling first. Some of the tastes sounds just bizarre but others on the other hand sound actually quite good. If you want to bake a couple of cupcakes with this whey, I have a recipe that is versatile enough to carry most of the flavors. It’s a basic protein and low calorie cupcake recipe that I love to bake in freeze in some pre/post workout treats. Those are
soft and goeey
and really hearty
1/2 chopped banana (45 g)
1/3 cup or 5 T coconut flour (38 g)
1 egg 4 egg whites (120 g)
3/4 cup or 1,8 dl Gf fiber flour blend (90 g)
3/4 cup or 1,8 dl unsweetened almond milk (180 ml)
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (100 g)
3/4 cup or 1,8 dl quark or greek yoghurt (170 g)
2 heaping scoops of Sticky toffee impact whey (60 g)
2 tsp baking powder
A dash of salt
Sweetener to taste
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp banana essence
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp toffee essence
Start with hearing up the oven to 350 F or 190 C. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Whip the egg in a small bowl and the egg whites in another bowl.
Start adding all the wet ingredients besides the chopped banana, egg and egg whites. Taste the mixture and add more sweetener if needed. Your mixture should be a bit over seasoned. Carefully stir in banana first and then the eggs plus whites and stir briefly. Pour the batter into 12 silicone molds and bake in the oven for about 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool before devouring with a nice cup of tea.
