I hope you had a lovely and relaxing weekend leading up to this holiday week! Welcome back to the next 3 MONTHS of Monday giveaways on the blog! If you missed last week, Jennifer C won some Lemon Coconut awesomeness in the form of The Simply Bar. This week I am excited to introduce to you a new line of high protein breads made by P28. They are named that because each bagel, 2 slices of bread, and wrap have 28g of protein in them!! This compares to the amount of protein in a chicken breast, or piece of salmon...but IN A BREAD.
See for yourself:
A few more highlights:
- 100% Natural
- 100% Whole Wheat - Made with Oat, Flax Seed, Sunflower Seed, and Millet
- Made with 100% Whey Isolate - The highest quality source of protein
- A rich source of 8 essential Amino Acids that your body needs for growth, energy, and vibrant health
- Cholesterol Free
- A Good source of Fiber
- Contains Omega 3's
- Excellent for people who are trying to build muscle and/or lose body fat.
This arrived at my doorstep (thank you P28!), and the tasting/creating began.
The Good, The Bad, and the Outta-this-World:
The bread is good. It has a similar look/feel/taste to "normal" bread, but with a slight chewiness that takes some getting used to. I decided after multiple sandwiches, a few pieces of toast, and a grilled cheese that I prefer the bread toasted. And if it's not toasted, I cut the crust off like a picky toddler :)
You'll have to wait 'til tomorrow for the recipe for this Lemon Blackberry Grilled Cheese (I know...I'm such a tease!). But, it was perfect on 2 slices of P28 high-protein bread.
The bagels were bad. At least the ones I received. (Maybe I got a bad batch?!) Sorry P28 peeps, just being honest...this blogger girl did not like them. They were chewy and tough and dry. Not how I like to get my protein, or anything for that matter. I tried to make another one this morning to see if I could improve my review/description. Nope. They went in the trash.
But, they sure did make up for it with what I'm about to show you next.
The wraps are outta-this-world!! This is a new product for them, which will be available for sale in about 2 weeks. They sure did find a winner!! They are similar to a chalupa bread... just the right thickness, nice flavor, and soooooo versatile. I had one with scrambled eggs, bacon, and cheese. One with peanut butter and fresh strawberries (which happens to be one of my 7 low-sugar tips, in case you missed them). One pan-fried as a quesadilla. And one with hummus, turkey, and red peppers. YUM!! This is a great (delicious) way to get in some extra protein!
They're fairly large, so after I rolled this one up, I cut off a bit of the excess to save a few extra calories.
So now for the giveaway!
