What are the ideal foods to accompany Whey Protein?
Today we are going to discuss here on the Blog Mundo Whey what are the best foods to accompany your supplementation and thus improve your results.
However, see, we are going to indicate foods that accompany food in general, throughout the day. We will also dispel some myths, such as “taking Whey with fruits improves results”, among many others.
We want this article to be very fast and dynamic, so let’s get to the point.
Okay, let’s get started!
Whey Protein with fruits, is that right?
The first thing we need to address is the custom of mixing Whey Protein with fruits (usually bananas and apples), in the hope that this will enhance the results.
Unfortunately, this custom is wrong and we should explain the reason: fruits are solids that delay the absorption of WPC (Whey Protein Concentrate). And the main function of Whey is to be absorbed by the body as soon as possible to act as a protein repository.
This is even more important for higher-rate Whey Protein, such as Whey 80, for example. In these cases, it is recommended that you take only supplementation, without any additional.
Whey Protein with granola or oats?
Second issue that needs to be discussed right now, we do not indicate that you take Whey Protein with granola, oats or similar ingredients.
Many people do this in the search for a better taste, which is wrong. Granola, oats and the body’s fast-processing foods make the potential of Whey Protein largely lost.
If you want to improve the taste of your Whey, there is only one way: choose another brand, or try another type. Making mixtures will impact the results obtained in the concentration of proteins.
Note: of course, this rule can be broken, as long as the manufacturer indicates on the packaging that that product should be consumed with ingredients. In these cases, the use of granola and oats would be free.
I want a hypertrophic diet, how to prepare my Whey
Now we are going to put the drops in the “is” before many people send us a message pointing out some things.
All of the tips above are for people who are not on a hypertrophic diet. They just want to maintain their health and gain muscle mass without haste.
On the other hand, for those who really want to grow, there are numerous recipes that can be made with Whey Protein, greatly increasing protein gain. This element will act on the muscles and expand the physical form.
Let’s look at the most common recipes:
This is one of the most delicious and can be consumed in the morning. The ingredients are:
- 4 egg whites;
- 2 egg yolks;
- 1 scoop of Whey Protein without flavor;
- 1 tablespoon of ricotta, or cottage cheese or Minas cheese;
- Salt to taste.
Mix the egg whites and egg yolks well. Add Whey Protein, cheese and salt. Heat a nonstick skillet for a few seconds, pour the mixture into the skillet and stir constantly.
Tip: a drizzle of olive oil can prevent the omelet from sticking.
Mug cake with Whey
The mug cake is also very simple and delicious, but it is accompanied by a banana. So know that, in this case, the power of Whey will be reduced.
That is, this cake does not serve as a daily food, but it is great for the days when you want something different.
The ingredients are:
- 1 clear
- 1 tablespoon of oats
- 2 tablespoons of Whey Protein flavor of your choice
- 1 silver banana
- 1 shallow coffee spoon of baking powder
How to prepare mug cake? Very simple.
Mix all the ingredients in a mug, mashing the banana well. Do this until the result forms a homogeneous mass.
Take it to the microwave for 2 minutes, good use.
