Pi Day? Should be Tri Day!

Actually today was chest and back but I hit tri’s with chest so counting it!

How’s it going guys? Today was a pretty standard meal day up until dinner and dessert when I stepped out of the box a bit. For dinner I changed the pizza game up a bit with this new Mountain Bread wraps that I found. I decided that I would try some pastries with the toppings that I was going to do a pizza with. What did I discover?

  1. I need to work on my wrapping ability
  2. I should have cut the pastry squares differently
  3. Mountain Bread is awesome!

So as I work on my wrapping of these I am going to hold off on making a video about making them for now but I promise I will keep trying. The macros for the dish wasn’t bad at all and ended up leaving me extra room for more fun stuff for dessert. The macros are 21c/12f/34p. The fats can be reduced by using egg whites, fat free cheese and a leaner meat. I plan on trying this with some other fillings as well maybe even go a little Asian or Mexican with it to get some different flavor profiles. Let me know what you guys think and what your thoughts on some fillings could be. Thinking also of rolling some up and making some fluff and piping it inside as a “pronoli” or protein cannoli! In all I have big plans for the Mountain Bread. End this rant!

 

Only using one of the wraps gave me an additional 14 carbs to play with for dessert and I had some options that included crumbles of chocolate chip cookies which might be in the cards for tomorrow, Hershey’s cookies and cream cereal, Fiber One Cereal for that extra fiber, fruit, or what I ended up going with was Reese’s puffs! I have been afraid to go to some of the sugary cereals because I tend to start to crave them but I figure the way that my weight has been going I can keep strong and that is what I am doing! I hit 171.8 yesterday which is again a new low! So I used my standard cake recipe, topped it with some Chocolate syrup and Chocolate Arctic Zero then topped that with the Reese’s puffs. I was in heaven! Macros are 24c/10f/36p.

Maybe instead of tri day I’ll call it try day because of the different foods I tried today. The weekend is tomorrow and I plan on posting up 3-4 videos including the tuna casserole and a pizza recipe. Watch for some crazy stuff coming up!

I want to welcome you to my new blog that will have recipes, full days of eating and other random thoughts.

For my first post I am going to post my evening meal of a protein powder cake, I’m working on starting a YouTube Channel and this is also posted on the Facebook page. I ended up actually cooking it for an additional 30 seconds to make sure that it was done. The way that the Artic Zero mixed with the Waldens Farms was awesome! This was one of my best cakes yet, only been doing it for a week but still.

Macros for everything: 17c/7f/34p

Cake(8c/2f/30p):
1tsp baking powder…
1 scoop Cellucor Strawberry Whey

Topping(9c/5f/4p):
22g Whipped Cream Cheese
