I sometimes like to lift things, like tires. I am pretty conscious after every workout to have a good source of protein. As I usually workout very early, my habit is to finish my breakfast after a workout. As I am capable of producing high quality food at home, I do. Although when I am adventuring... Gi'mme wholesome, nutritionally rich products!
Protein is not a big, worisome deal to me, either, as we have chickens that lay eggs, and roosters that we can turn into stew. We buy from local farmers and fishers, and my husband and I even hunt game.
But today, I chose a some spicy pumpkin cake as a source of protein. Its made with organic spelt (That I grind). Spelt is high in carbohydrates, as you would expect, but the very high levels of protein (21% of your daily recommended intake) and dietary fiber (30% in a single serving!) are very impressive. On top of those important compounds, spelt also contains significant levels of iron, copper, manganese, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, zinc, selenium, niacin, thiamin, vitamin B6, and folic acid.

One cup of canned pumpkin has seven grams of fiber and three grams of protein— even more than the fresh stuff— and contains only 80 calories and one gram of fat.
We use our free range (truly) fresh eggs. Eggs have many nutritional benefits. They’re a perfect source of high-quality protein, with relatively few calories (6.3 grams of protein for only 72 calories in a large egg). Eggs also contain vitamins B12 and D, and several essential micronutrients, including choline (important for brain health) and lutein (for eye health)
Throw in all the fresh ginger, molasses, Stevia (not sugar) and superfood spices, and cake turns into a delicious powerhouse meal.
