I’ve noticed that the cleaner my diet is, the less I have a taste for sweets and dessert.
I noticed that as well. I’d love to hear you guys’ take as to why that is.
Guilt is probably one factor for me. If I’m eating clean and trying to lean up, then I don’t want to ‘screw up’ my diet by eating sweet stuff.
I think John Berardi has said that your tastes buds will change and adjust to eating clean. You’ll begin to crave healthier foods and lose the taste for junk.[/quote]
I agree that for many of us, the guilt far outweighs the pleasure. And I do believe in re-training the taste buds to enjoy healthier foods. Still though, I love dessert! But instead of indulging in unhealthy variations, I’ve found that there is an endless amount of possibilities with Grow! Whey. This is my favorite creation as of right now:
The non-Oreo Protein Milkshake:
2 Scoops Grow! Whey
8oz Unsweetened Almond Milk (Vanilla Flavored)
3g Guar Gum
30g Pure Dark Chocolate (NO Added Sugars)
1 Stevia Packet
Simply place the powder, almond milk, and guar gum in a blender and blend it up for about 15 seconds on medium speed.
Throw in a handful of ice cubes and blend them up. Gradually add additional ice cubes one by one until you reach desired consistency. Personally for me, I go for a handful + 3-4 more.
Next take a block of dark chocolate (30 g) and heat it in the microwave to make the outside layer a little softer so it mixes easier (DO NOT MELT). Throw it in the blender and blend it up into little bits of pieces. Best results come when the chocolate is in little chunks as opposed to it being smoothly blended in (which is why it shouldn’t be melted).
Spoon and eat.
The guar gum and almond milk contributes in making the shake thick (just like a real milkshake), and the bits of chocolate really make it feel like you’re eating an Oreo Blizzard or something of that nature.
