I have been enjoying my downtime and lifting as heavy as possible while making my staple meals. I like to come up with my own recipes because I see a ton that are always the same— usually with a switch here and there. So I want to be different and have done just that! My recipes have satisfied my cravings for pizza, cookies, pancakes, cake and the list goes on! I will share two recipes with you. These recipes have been quite popular with almost everyone who has tried them. So I thought my FitnessRx readers would love to get in on the action!
I have been getting quite creative with my ALLMAX NUTRITION ISOFLEX protein with the addition of MUSCLE EGG egg whites. AllMax Nutrition is something I use every day. I have celiac disease and it’s very difficult to find an amazing tasting protein powder that is gluten free. Not only is it gluten free, it is also aspartame free, low in calories, low in carbs and low in fat, which makes it an amazing treat to keep in your diet even leading up to show preps.

I was just introduced to Muscle Egg by my good friends Tommy Reynolds (southwest sales manager) and Paul Shepherd (owner). At first, I was a little taken aback by the fact I was drinking egg whites rather than cooking them first before consuming. Well I’ll give you a little rundown on Muscle Egg egg whites: they are produced in a USDA-compliant facility with state-of-the-art equipment. This ensures the safest, highest quality liquid egg whites possible. Muscle Egg egg whites are salmonella, listeria and avidin free. Avidin, found in raw eggs, affects B vitamin biotin, stops it being absorbed, and causes problems with fatty acid synthesis and blood sugar levels. The pasteurizing process for the liquid egg whites removes the avidin, and any salmonella or listeria, but the egg whites remain liquid, ready for cooking or immediate consumption.
Here are the recipes I came up with:
Vanilla Coconut – Banana Protein pancakes
• ½ scoop ALLMAX Nutrition Vanilla Isoflex
• 1 cup Muscle Egg (vanilla egg whites)
• ½ tsp Hain sodium-free, gluten-free baking powder
• Tiny drop of vanilla and coconut extract (I mean literally not even a 1/8 of a tsp – tiny drop)
• 1-2 tbsp of unsweetened applesauce or 0% fat-free Fage Greek yogurt (if in show prep omit – or if you have a piece of fruit in your diet, sub it with this)
• 2 tbsp coconut flour
• Stevia and cinnamon to taste (I use a lot of both – so however much you like)
Blend all ingredients together in a Magic Bullet and in a pancake skillet (I purchased mine from Costco and it makes seven 3×3 pancakes). Cook each side for 3 minutes or when it bubbles, and repeat. Garnish with coconut flakes and banana, and top with sugar-free syrup (I used Walden’s pancake syrup— zero calories, zero everything).
I Can’t Believe It’s Not Pizza – Pizza Recipe
• ¾ c Muscle Egg (plain egg whites)
• 2 tbsp oat flour or coconut flour (for lower carbs)
• ¼ tsp sea salt
• ¼ tsp Hain baking powder
• Organicville no sugar added marinara
• Shredded chicken (Also, you can add Walden BBQ sauce to make BBQ chicken pizza)
• Sliced peppers
• Fat-free cheese (optional)
Blend 3/4 cups egg whites with 2 tbsp oat flour in Magic Bullet. Then I cooked it like a pancake. When it was done, I added 1/4 cup no sugar added, gluten-free marinara and pizza basil for sauce, and the toppings— shredded chicken, sliced peppers and 1 tbsp (optional) shredded fat-free cheese, and spinach. I then put it in my toaster oven for 10 minutes and the edges folded up on their own.
I hope you all love these as much as I do! Enjoy your pizza and pancakes and EVERY DAY if you want to! Sounds like heaven doesn’t it?! Would love to hear how they all come out! Enjoy!
