Ingredients:

  1. 1 P28 Flatbread
  2. 3 tablespoons favorite pizza or roasted red pepper sauce (should be thick)

  2. Arrange 1-P28 high protein flatbread on a baking tray. 
  3. Evenly & thinly spread either pizza sauce or roasted red pepper sauce (be sure to use a thick variety) over entire flatbread, all the way to the edges, if you don’t go all the way to edges, your edges will get crisp.
  4. Sprinkle half of the grated parmesan cheese over entire pizza. Sprinkle 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese over the pizza, then using your sauce spoon clear 6 round areas to make a well where you where crack the eggs, having the cheese around the area helps hold the eggs from running off the sides of your pizza, it makes almost like a nest for them. If your eggs are bigger than medium size you may need to reserve some of the whites portion of your egg in a bowl to use for another recipe, if you have too much whites they will run off your pizza. Sprinkle on the bacon evenly over entire pizza. Then top with remaining mozzarella and parmesan.

Healthy Foods & Snacks – Greek Yogurt

Supplement Central Blog

You’re not alone if you have ever wondered, “What’s the difference between Greek yogurt and regular yogurt?” Greek yogurt’s popularity has been skyrocketing lately, and you may wonder what all the fuss is about. Is Greek yogurt more nutritious than regular yogurt? With nearly 28% of Americans now eating yogurt on a daily basis, it’s a question worth investigating.

Yogurt comes from milk that has had healthy bacteria added, causing it to ferment. During this process, yogurt thickens and takes on a slightly tangy taste. Yogurt is then strained through cheesecloth, which allows the liquid whey part of milk to drain off. Regular yogurt is strained twice, while Greek yogurt is strained three times to remove more whey (leaving a thicker consistency).

While all yogurt provides numerous health benefits (including probiotics), the nutritional stats for Greek yogurt and regular yogurt do differ. Here’s how the two stack up:

Protein – Greek yogurt has almost double the protein of regular yogurt. Eight ounces of Greek yogurt has about 20 grams of protein, whereas regular yogurt provides around 11-13 grams. Greek yogurt’s high protein content makes it a favorite among people trying to manage their weight as it helps ward off hunger.

Carbohydrates – Greek yogurt has fewer carbohydrates than regular yogurt. This could be beneficial to diabetics, who have to watch their carbohydrate intake.

Calcium – Regular yogurt has about three times the calcium of Greek yogurt. Both are still considered good sources of calcium, but women who don’t get enough calcium from other foods may want to stick to regular yogurt for its bone-building benefits.

Sodium – Greek yogurt has half the sodium of regular yogurt.

Calories – Plain, nonfat versions of Greek and regular yogurt have a similar calorie count per serving, but added sugars can significantly increase the calories of either variety.

Texture – Greek yogurt is much thicker and creamier than regular yogurt because it’s strained more. Greek yogurt can also be used in cooking as it does not curdle when heated like regular yogurt.

Cost – Unfortunately, you’ll likely spend twice the money on Greek yogurt. This is largely due to escalating customer demand, as Greek yogurt’s taste, texture, and great nutritional profile keep consumers coming back in droves. Greek yogurt also costs more because the extra straining requires much more milk, so it’s a more concentrated source of protein.

Although most people snack on yogurt, don’t underestimate its versatility. Both types of yogurt can be used as lower-calorie substitutes for fatty ingredients. Swap out eggs and oil in baked goods for Greek yogurt, or use either yogurt type in place of full-fat sour cream, heavy cream, mayonnaise, or cream cheese in recipes. Both types can also be used in place of other high-calorie ingredients in dips, sauces, salad dressings, smoothies, and desserts.

Yogurt is often touted as an ideal health food, and it can be if you choose the right kind. As with both Greek and regular yogurts, be sure to choose low-fat or nonfat varieties, and opt for those with little to no added sugar, as this ups the calorie count.

Want Big Arms? Lift with Your Legs

SuppCentral

By Jeff Butterworth

Think getting that full, pumped up look is all about crushing dumbbells and “gettin’ swole?” Well, you’re not completely wrong, but you are missing a few important steps.

See, movement specificity is important with regards to the development of certain muscles, but isolated “muscle-pumping” movements like the biceps curl or triceps pushdown simply don’t push the boundaries of your body’s overall power output. Bigger compound lifts, however, such as the deadlift, squat, or press, recruit multiple large muscle groups through multiples planes to move weight and require a significantly bigger output to do so. Your body’s nervous system, responsible for activating, building, and maintaining muscle, recognizes this massive difference in power output, and regulates any changes or improvements that would be needed to complete either of these tasks in the future. For example, if the isolated biceps can move “x” amount of weight, the nervous system might call for little or no improvements, and if the body performs a heavy deadlift at ten times that weight, the nervous system will recognize the effort required and look to make improvements in the involved muscles’ lifting capacity, or strength.
This particular idea is now simple – movements that recruit multiple muscle groups in the body require a greater nervous response, and thus a greater stimulus toward building while muscle-isolating movements can be performed with lesser nervous response, prompting very little building. This more-bang-for-your-buck concept is important but isn’t the only part of the growth equation; a chemically-oriented physiological process allows you to use that same muscle building response and share it with the rest of the body to make isolation exercises worthwhile.
When you force your heavy-hitter muscles to work together as a team in compound lifts, your body produces greater levels of testosterone and growth hormone, key anabolic factors in the rapid development of muscle fibers through muscle hypertrophy or growth. Of course, some hypertrophy will still result from small lifts, even something as simple as a wrist curl, it will just happen on a much, much smaller scale, thanks to a reduced need for this testosterone and growth hormone production. A body flooded with testosterone and growth hormone will grow by leaps and bounds in the hardest-worked areas, while one with very little T/GH production will see very little growth. Try thinking of your body as a growing company with the big T and growth hormone as its new-hire budget – do you want your new muscle recruitment and development to resemble Google-growth, or are you ok with AOL?
The intersection of these two ideas is that you can use both the anabolic hormonal response and mass muscle recruitment of big lifts to ramp up the effects of those triceps pushdowns and hammer curls to build you the biggest set of pythons in your particular region of the iron jungle.
“How can I take advantage of this mind-blowing principal?” you may ask. It’s relatively easy. Begin your training with heavy compound movements to get the muscles screaming and the testosterone flowing, then add in sets of your accessory and aesthetic work afterward to help every muscle involved ride that development train all the way to Swoletown. This also means that you won’t have to schedule “arm day,” or take up valuable time and energy during push or pull workouts. When you’re working on big presses or heavy rows, save the isolation movements for later – even little lifts require some energy, and you don’t want to miss your last bench because your triceps were tapped out from kickbacks.
Try a few of these variations to harness the full potential of your body’s anabolic response:
Move from one exercise in each superset to the next fairly quickly, without rushing, and try to rest 90 to 120 seconds between sets.
