Refined carbs like muffins, cold breakfast cereal and white bread raise levels of insulin causing inflammation. A Harvard Medical School study showed that healthy women who ate high-glycemic carbs had the highest levels of CRP (C-reactive protein) - used as a marker for inflammation and potential illnesses like heart disease. Make your carbs gluten free whole grains to stay healthy.

These recipes for the cookies and pudding got me through my sugar cravings.
Looove the pudding. Swirl the vanilla and chocolate together!

Superior Protein Sources
The non-gmo pea and rice protein in Protein Lean is wheat and gluten free, soy free, lactose free, and refined sugar free. It provides 17 grams of protein per serving (2 scoops) and has a 100% score for amino acid content - usually found only in animal products. Protein Lean does not contain disruptive bovine growth hormones or cause the intestinal bloating often associated with dairy products (whey and casein protein powders).
When I say these protein powders work, I mean it...
They're great for athletes, as a pre- and post-workout drink, but they're
also incredible for those of us who want to stay in shape...
Have I mentioned that they're also delicious?

Wow your foodie friends
If you're new to cooking without wheat or gluten, it's like your first day in the gym or a new city. Ingredients can be unfamiliar and curious. We've kept our recipes simple, you don't have to be a Culinary Institute graduate to prepare them. Your "foodie" friends will be commenting that your cookies and baked goods taste better that the same wheat versions, and they'll be asking for your Protein Lean Power Food pudding recipes. That's easy too, just send them here.
Our Secret to Success
A note about our recipe testing - which we consider our secret to success. Every recipe Steven and I create is tested and refined by our teenaged daughter, Siena. She's even creating recipes on her own like her Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies. When she gives a thumbs-up, we know we've got a winning recipe. - Rick Dinihanian
