Coming off my first month of full marathon training, I find myself looking for foods that contain the protein(s) that I need to keep my muscles fueled, growing and recovering.  Last month, I received the P28 Foods Trial Pack filled with some great options for me to test out how my body would respond to a protein packed food that wasn’t shake based.

When I received the pack I was really excited to learn that there were so many real food options available from this brand.  In my pack I received a bagel, a slice of bread and a flat bread along with several of their nut butter varieties for those days when I wanted something a little less filling.  I love that the products can be used to create “real” food meals instead of just drinking a less satiating liquid form of protein.  An actual Meal!?!  That’s a win in my book!

“A company developed by three brothers in the bakery business with their personal trainer/nutritionist.” These guys have really built something amazing, in my opinion.  I’m excited to see what else they develop in the future to keep the “real” food train going through my training and eating plan!

P28 Bagel & Almond ButterBack to the products!  The first thing I opted to try was the bagel with the almond butter for breakfast after a morning of coaching and a 3-mile run.  I loved the flavor and toasted it up just like a normal bagel.  The almond butter was the same consistency of any other that I have tried or made and very flavorful.  No weird after tastes or adverse digestive effects which was wonderful!  This breakfast kept me full and energized until it was time for “2nd” breakfast!

Last night, since the hubby is traveling this week and my stepson was out, I opted to give the flat bread a try and made a little super thin crusted pizza.  It was so flavorful and satisfying and really helped pre-fuel my body for this morning’s super tough hilly 4.5 mile run.  Here’s how I made it –

P98 Foods Flat Bread PizzaIngredients –

  • 1 P28 Foods High Protein Flat Wrap
  • Pizza Sauce of your choice, I used a tomato basil variety that had no added sugar
  • Organic Tomato, sliced
  • Uncured Pepperoni, sliced in quarters
  • Pepperoncini Peppers, diced
  • Shredded Mozzarella, I use the Organic Valley brand
  • 1/2 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
  • Salt/Pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Assemble your toppings (you can add more items if desired) and place on baking sheet.  Place in oven and cook until edges of flat bread are brown or desired brownness, but be careful not to cook too long or the flat bread will burn.

Enjoy!  And just keep moving!
