Peanut Butter Protein Slice

On my way home from Uni yesterday I had a peanut butter craving, so got home, looked at what food was in the cupboard that I could possibly use to make some sort of peanut butter creation.  Keep it simple is one of my motto's - Make something substantial and somehow combine protein powder without making the whole thing taste like cardboard. The recipe can easily tweaked here and there to suit your own taste.  For example rice milk if you don't drink almond, honey if you don't like maple syrup and adding in stevia if you have a big sweet tooth.  Make it for yourself and let me know your thoughts.

San Choy Bow

San Choy Bow originated from China - traditionally made with pork mince Dr Libby has added this dish to her new cook book but taken out the meat and replaced it with protein rich quinoa and chickpeas.  I made this last night for dinner and it was enough to have as a main dish.  The quinoa and chickpeas are so filling! This is a beautiful meal, so many flavors and so fresh... with the added bonus of no MSG as it's home made. I love how this dish is cooked using macadamia nut oil.  Macadamia oil is one of the healthiest edible oils and is higher in monounsaturates, the goods fats, when compared to Extra Virgin Olive oil.  The oil can be cooked at very high temperatures 210°C /410°F so doesn't burn food.
