Pumpkin Cookie Butter Cheesecake w/ a toasted pecan cinnamon crust
@uniconutritionVanillaFrosted Brownie crunch bar – ‘soft baked and gluten free’
Cals – 210 / Fat – 8 / Carbs – 19 / Pro – 20
52g bar so slightly smaller than its competitors that are usually low 60’s. Macro split is pretty much the same as all the other bars of this style, and fairly balanced. Overall presentation is nice with a brownie bar coated in white then drizzling of chocolate over that with plenty of noticeable ‘crips’. Bar is very soft in texture with a bit of a chew on it. The vanilla is pretty sweet and honesty does give you a frosting flavor which I quite liked. You get some brownie in it, but I think the brownie layer should have a bit more flavor to it and not so much frosting. Nice bit of crunch in the beginning to satisfy my texture needs as well. .
Overall – 8/10 Definitely enjoyed this bar and I bet it would be even better warmed up just a bit. Definitely grab one of these if your looking for a change up.
@uniconutrition ice cinnamon roll review
210 cal / 6f / 19c / 20p
Slightly smaller bar at 52g but good macro split to accompany it. Visually a very pleasing bar with a cinnamon nougat filling coating in white, then drizzled with cinnamon drizzle. Noticeable crisps throughout the bar to help with texture appeal.
Very soft bar when chewing with a bit of crunch from the crisps. You get a great blast of cinnamon from the get go and finished with a smooth vanilla icing finishing. The bar didn’t leave any unwanted aftertaste or graininess in the mouth. This bar is also gluten free. .
Overall – 8.5/10 very good bar and enjoyable to eat. Would definitely recommend trying this out
@performixdriven fruity charms wafer review –
210 cal / 15f / 7c / 13p .
38g total weight for the wafers so small compared to a typical protein bar but wafers are lite. 15g of Fat is pretty high for me but the trade off is super low carbs at 7g which is damn low for a bar. Visually I love this. White coated wafers with fruity pebbles scattered over them(well a few at least). 2 layers of wafers, 2 layers of filling. Unfortunately this flavor was absolutely terrible. As soon as I bit into it I had this weird taste in my mouth, the wafer just kinda dries up in your mouth and sticks to your teeth. Definitely don’t get fruity charm flavor that’s boasted. .
Overall – 2/10 , absolutely unappealing to me and definitely would not buy or recommend to anyone
@performixdriven CPB protein wafer review –
210 cal / 14f / 8c / 13 p
Definitely a good macro bar if your looking for low carbs, if you eat a low fat diet like me, you might wanna check yourself. 38g total grams, so very lite compared to typical bars but again this is a wafer. Chocolate coating with a double wager layer with pb in between the layers. Gotta day I’m completely underwhelmed. No real chocolate or pb flavor here and it dissolves pretty dang quick. It also is just a tit bit grainy as well as it gets sticky on your teeth, and leaves a bit of an aftertaste. .
Overall – 3/10 , I just couldn’t get into this. I did let someone eat what I wasn’t going to and they enjoyed it so it’s definitely personal preference! .
@prosupps carrot cake my cookie review – 290 cal / 8f / 36c / 18p .
First off, the carrot cake aroma with this cookie is spot on 👌 very inviting to say the least. 80g weight of the cookie so it’s a good size. Carrot cake cookie with a glaze on top makes it look very appealing as well. Very very soft texture and good carrot cake flavor but I did find it to kinda die out as you chew and the more you chew it does get a bit grainy unfortunately. Very dense as well. Might have something to do with it. .
Overall – 7.5/10, still one of the better protein cookies on the market and macro split is very good as far as competition goes but needs a bit of tweaking imo .
@prosupps_mycookiered velvet cookie – cals – 290 / Fat – 8 / carbs – 36 / Pro – 18g .
Visually it’s a very very deep red cookie with a white icing over the top. Very comparable macros in the protein cookie realm of things. Soft cookie as it breaks easy, and chews even easier. Dense texture, and Very subtle flavor that isn’t too strong but definitely is just enough. You get hit with red velvet then finishes with a smooth icing that’s almost makes it feel like it’s a cream cheese icing. Definitely was a fan of this cookie, and I’m not a huge red velvet kinda guy either. .
Overall – 8/10 , definitely a cookie to pick up and give a shot. Great job by @prosupps
130g of Pumpkin spice cookie spread(or cookie butter/peanut butter of choice)
1 box Fat Free Cream Cheese room temp
1 Scoop Muscletech Cinnamon Whey
120g Pumpkin Puree
1.5 oz Walden Farm Pancake Syrup
12g Truvia or other granulated sugar
2 whole eggs
12 Ginger Snap cookies
42g Pumpkin Spice Morsels
Pinch of Salt
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Ahhh, back to the roots. Long ago I use to bake a protein cake almost every single day.
@thephysiquemechanic and I were talking and decided I would start throwing some recipes and content in his weekly newsletter, so here we are. .
@muscletech Chocolate Mint Andes Cake w/ @eatenlightened mint ice cream, @waldenfarmsinternational choc syrup, cool whip, and a few more Andes pieces. Who says healthy can’t be pretty! Presentation is everything! .
1/2 Scoops Mint Chocolate Protein(I used MuscleTech’s)
16g Coconut Flour
10g All Purpose Flour
10g Truvia(or granulated sweetner of choice)
5g Cocoa Powder
70g Greek Yogurt(I used Whole Milk Plain)
60g Unsweetened Applesauce
7g lite butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp mint extract
Unsweetened almond milk or other liquid to bring together if needed
10-20g depending // Andes Mint candy pieces or other choc/mix-ins “optional”
Walden Farms Chocolate Sauce “optional”
Kept this very basic and extremely quick to do as I didn’t have loads of time preparing this. I made this directly for the busy health minded dessert lover.
For added protein add in eggs, egg whites, more Greek yogurt, or even increase your protein powder/liquid ratio
To reduce the fat amount use 0% Plain Greek Yogurt, eliminate the butter and increase yogurt or applesauce slightly, leave out the Andes candies.
6 inch ramekin works really well for personal sized cakes but you could get away with breaking this up into cupcakes, a bread loaf, or any other pan you have. Just watch bake time!
Some lower calorie options for decorative toppings would be 0 calorie Chocolate Syrup from Walden Farms, low calorie ice creams like Enlightened, Halo Top, or Arctic Zero, and use lite or fat free cool whip
In preparing my pan I like to spray with a non stick cooking spray then place a piece of parchment paper on the bottom to help prevent any sticking issues.
Cals – 345
Fat – 7.3
Carbs – 42.5
Protein – 32.5
83g Graham Cracker Crumbs
1 oz Pancake Syrup
14g Lite Butter
1.5 Scoops of Berry Cheesecake Protein(Muscletech’s protein is awesome)
120g Plain Greek Yogurt
2 large eggs
2 containers of Fat free cream cheese(room temp)
20g Truvia or other sweetener of choice
34g Sugar Free Preserves/Jelly – I used Strawberry
Pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 275 degrees. Wrap your 6 in spring-fold pan in tin foil. We will be using a water bath.
In a bowl in together crust ingredients. Add more syrup if needed to mix. Place crust in your spring form. I find crust is a personal preference, so if you want a crispy crust, pre-bake it at 350 for roughly 8-12 minutes. Let cool completely before adding cheesecake
In a mixing bowl, place in your cream cheese and beat it very well. You don’t want any lumps in your cheesecake.
Next add in your sugar, protein, jelly, and yogurt. Mix well until completely combined.
Now add in your eggs one at a time and mixing just until mixed. Scrape down the sides as you go.
Finally add in your salt and vanilla and mix well until combined.
Optional – Add in fresh berries into the mixture right before you add it into your pan.
Pour your batter into your pan, and place your cake inside a pan that can hold water. Your cake should be sitting in the middle of the oven.
For a water bath, you want to start with hot water. Get some water boiling, and once it’s boiling pour roughly 1/2 in worth of water. You want enough water in the pan so it wont all bake out during cook time.
Bake your cheesecake for 60 minutes at 275 degrees. Try not to open oven door while cooking. Once time is done, slightly crack the oven door and let it sit for at least another 30 minutes.
Once the cheesecake has reached room temp, transfer to the fridge and let sit for at least 6 hours, or overnight. You can use the freezer to help it set faster.
Cut into 4 slices, top with fat free cool whip, fresh berries, and some 0 calorie strawberry/blueberry sauce for a fantastic, protein packed dessert!
@prosupps_llc confetti cake crunch –
220 cal / 10f / 17c / 20p
Overall slightly higher macros for the size of this bar compared to competitors. 55g bar compared to usually 60-65g. I guess you take a hit in fat for a few saved macros in the carb dept. Visually pretty appealing bar with a white coating drizzled with pink and scattered with spranks. Texture on this is pretty smooth chew with a just a bit of a crunch from the spranks. Finishes smooth in the mouth as well not leaving any graininess behind. Very sweet bar, with a solid birthday cake flavor. I feel the flavor does die just a bit right at the end but overall pretty solid flavor. Overall the bar is pretty satisfying. .
Overall – 8/10. Enjoyed this one over the PB caramel bar.
@prosupps_llc Salted Caramel Peanut Crunch Review
220 cal / 10f / 17c / 20p
Overall size is a bit smaller than your usual bar. 55g compared to 65g or so and it definitely feels like it’s smaller, so it’s a bit of a shock to still see 10g of fat, but carbs are relative low at only 17g. Visually very nice looking bar with a peanut filling, chocolate coating, drizzle, and scattered peanuts over the bar.(que higher fat, yet the non peanut bar I got was also 10f). .
Mainly a peanut butter aroma with a faint hint of caramel. Very soft when biting it the bar and chews pretty good with the peanuts giving just a slight crunch. Overall flavor here lacked in my opinion. It’s like the caramel and the peanut butter are fighting for the top flavor and neither come out on top and it all gets lost. Chocolate flavor? Don’t even mention it. Enjoyable to eat, but definitely wouldn’t seek this bar out over many others. .
Overall – 7/10 .
@prosupps_mybar peanut butter paradise bar review –
340 cal / 13f / 33c / 30p
Hefty bar at 88g which is nice since this is packing 300+ cals. Absolutely delicious peanut butter aroma to this bar from first ripping it open. Peanut butter coated bar with a peanut butter filling and a nougat layer with chocolate drizzle over it all. Appearance definitely is 👌 with this bar. Macro split is similar to your fit crunch or other related soft baked bars. Very very very soft and chewy texture with some peanuts scattered throughout it. Great peanut butter flavor as it’s the definite stand out here. The bar doesn’t leave a film or any grainy bits left behind and finishes smooth. I honestly don’t have much negative to say about this bar. Spot on Pro Sups, well done. .
Overall – 9.5/10
@prosupps my bar death by chocolate review-
Cals – 340 / Fat – 13 / Carbs – 33 / Protein – 30
88g bar coated in chocolate with a chocolate drizzle and what looks like chocolate pieces on top. Extremely soft and chewy bar that finishes smooth with no aftertaste. Great chocolate flavor without being overly sweet but definitely sweet enough. Inside looks like two layers of maybe a brownie and cake or maybe two types of a brownie 🤷♂️ idk but it’s delicious. .
Overall – 9.5/10
Definitely a bar that you need to try. I absolutely loved this bar and definitely recommend this! Nom nom nom

Today I’m very excited to bring you a review from the first meal prep company I have tried/worked with! I have always thought it was a great idea to have well made pre-made meals ready to be heated and consumed similar to those unhealthy frozen TV dinners. Diet To Go comes in and fits the bill perfect.
They not only have one menu, but 3 separate menus. Balance contains well balanced macros and taste without having seafood or vegetarian options. This is the menu I will be reviewing today. They also have a completely vegetarian menu as well as a Diabetic friendly menu as well!
The meals I will be reviewing today are 3 breakfast options, 3 lunch options, and 3 dinner options.
First thing you think of when you hear Turkey burger is DRY, but not in this case. DTG has brought a good size, moist burger with a nice pretzel bun. The burger itself could use a touch more seasoning, but the burger eats well, and pairs with the pretzel bun very well. Great macro split here for a lunch/dinner.
Absolutely mouth watering smell with this dish. The fire roasted tomatoes really give off such an inviting aroma. Great macros from someone that is following a low carb diet. The omelet was a bit watery and I felt needed some salt and pepper to help make it pop a bit more, but overall not to bad of a dish and plenty of veggies to go with.
What a combination for the bean salad! That was a new one for me, and something I am going to remember! Extremely refreshing, lite, good combo of flavors, but I felt like it was just missing that last little bit of pop to make it outstanding. Quesadilla was great size and loved the flavor combo, but needed to be slightly stronger in flavor.
My nephew was around when I was trying out a few meals and this was definitely his favorite! The little man just couldn’t put the fork down! Big tender shells smothered in a creamy cheese sauce, what’s not to love? Very surprised and pleased at the overall macros and the amount of protein that’s in the dish for it just being mac n cheese. The noodles were cooked perfectly, but I just felt the mac needed a bit more overall flavor increase. Still yummy though.
I wish I would of got a picture of this! I thought I did, but I couldn’t find it so just trust me on this one when I say that the Pesto salad had great chunks of chicken, creamy, good size portion, good overall flavor, and not to strong of pesto flavor. Absolutely great cold salad. The roll was a touch sweet, but also just a touch dry, but I thought the roll and salad paired well together. This salad would also go great on toasted bread or with crackers!
I unfortunately I only got a picture of the fruit salad for this dish. The Egg sammy was a bit small in my opinion and needed more flavor. Overall flavor was a bit bland. The tropical salad on the other hand was delicious. Great mix of all the fruits you would expect to be in a tropical mix.
One of my favorites! Hearty sized serving with good amount of toppings. Great and generous cheese coating. I heated my pizza in the oven which I would highly recommend to make this taste the best. I felt the crust could of gotten crispier, but it was very soft and fluffy texture, so not bad just was expecting something a bit crispier. Overall flavor wasn’t terrible but I thought a bit of Italian seasoning would do wonders here. Apples where delicious and a great pairing, the only issue I found was a few lingering apple cores on a few pieces that made for a bad mouth feel and had to spit it out.
This was my favorite dish! Great glaze and nice cook on the asparagus to start. The Turkey also had great flavor, abundant, and a good mix of meat, rice, beans, and extras. I felt this dish also had one of the best macro splits to be had. I would definitely eat this again.
The tenderloin had overall good flavor and spice to it. Tomatoes were plump and juicy, and the green beans were cooked well. They still had some of their crunch left to them, which is what I’m looking for. For me the rice had a little to much soy in it, and took over the other flavors inside the rice. I felt everything but the rice could of had a bit more salt to it.
Overall I really enjoyed the content I got from DTG and with a few minor seasonings they are doing a fantastic job at providing a well balanced, well portioned, macro friendly, quick, and convenient meals to people that are looking for an avenue to explore when they are short on time but want to get in quality nutrition.
