I just ordered an all Egg White Protein Powder from bodybuilding.com. I’ve ordered a bunch of stuff from their site before (including various types of protein), just never an all Egg White protein powder. It felt like Christmas, yet again, when I received their lovely Bodybuilding.com white box in the mail!
I really haven’t heard any recommendations or reviews on this protein, but I have tried the MRM brand and I love it; their products are very natural and clean. A great supplement line, indeed. I figured their egg white protein must be as great as their other stuff.
I decided to give this protein a very special use for my very first time of trying it; so I baked some yummy Paleo protein bars! These Pumpkin (Protein) Cakes are awesome “to-go” mid-morning or mid-afternoon snacks, but they could also be enjoyed for dessert or for breakfast. They are low-carb treats that are great for those who workout on a regular basis, giving you essential healthy fats and being a good protein source. If you don’t workout, you can have them as well…do not fear the protein powder!
