High Protein Healthy Angel Food Cake

This HUGE cake from blogger The Macro Experiment is packed full of protein while still being low in calories: you really can have your own massive cake and eat it too!


Have you ever found a recipe that is SO amazing that you literally make it on repeat week after week after week? Yup, this recipe is THAT GOOD that I literally make it weekly.  Why? Well first off, it makes a HUGE cake.  A: Who doesn't like cake? and B: Who doesn't like getting to eat a huge cake all by themselves? NOBODY! Ok, maybe someone trying to watch their weight.....BUT! That's why this recipe is so perfect! It literally makes one massive single serving cake for 188 calories...packed full of 38 grams of protein!


AND THEN! The toppings.  Oh, oh the toppings. Since the cake is so low in calories you can glob on whatever toppings you want to make a decadent meal to satisfy your sweet tooth while still staying low carb and high protein.


There is a full recipe at the end of the post but I thought I'd walk you through the process a bit.  Baisically you just have to mix together seven egg whites (from real eggs, not a carton!) 1 tsp cream of tartar, 1 tsp of vanilla extra, and (optional) 2 tbs stevia in the raw. Throw it in a kitchen aid mixer (affiliate link) using a whisk attachment and beat on high for about 3 minutes.  Using a kitchen aid is SO useful, it's really difficult to get the eggs as fluffy as they need to be using only a hand mixer.


You should be able to tell the batter is ready when the egg whites stiffen and form hard peaks

Feuling up For my Girl's Beach Weekend with Acme

Once a year I get together with some of my girlfriends from college over the summer for a long weekend trip down in Ocean City Maryland.



We all live kind of all over the place now post college, so this one weekend is sometimes the only time I get to see these girls! It's always SUCH a fun weekend full of laughs, lots of beach time, and some yummy food and drinks.

I preach daily about healthy living and eating, but for this one weekend of each year I give myself an excuse to just relax with my girlfriends and indulge in some extra treats. Every year we go to an AMAZING Mexican restaurant called Tequila Mockingbird and I get something loaded up with cheese with a side of a sugary margarita. Last year instead of hitting up the bar after dinner we went out for fro-yo and came back to our hotel room to watch a chick-flick in our pajamas ;)

Oh course we always keep our hotel room stocked with snacks and waters to take to the beach to keep us hydrated and full while out in the sun all day! I'm leaving for my annual trip down to ocean city this week so I had to stop in at my local ACME Markets Store to stock up on some goodies for my annual adventure down the shore!



At ACME Markets, I can pick from a bunch of different PepisCo products like Aquafina bottled water and Veggie Harvest Tomato Basil and Cheese-flavored Sunchips to throw in my suitcase for my trip. Obviously a cute bikini, sun screen and a new beach read are also required for this trip ;) I literally CANNOT WAIT to be sitting on the beach in my beach chair, munching on Sunchips, reading and soaking up the sun!
