Recipe of the Week: High-Protein Peach Cobbler

Recipe of the Week: High-Protein Peach Cobbler

A great peach cobbler is one of my favorite desserts.

It not only tastes outstanding, but it’s mainly just carbohydrates and protein, which is best for cheating as high-fat meals are more readily stored as body fat than high-protein, high-carb meals.

(Want to learn more about why carbohydrates aren’t your enemy? Check out my article on carbohydrates and weight loss to find out.)

This easy-to-make recipe is from my cookbook, The Shredded Chef, and is one I find myself coming back to again and again when I want a high-protein, healthy, homemade dessert. Pair it with some low-fat ice cream and enjoy.

I'm Mike and I'm the creator of Muscle for Life and Legion Athletics, and I believe that EVERYONE can achieve the body of their dreams.

What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.

And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.

Well, I have good news.

All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.

You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.

And this book will show you the way.

    I just made this for brunch and it was amazing!!! I used 2 fresh peaches instead of preserves, and wardens farms syrup instead of honey (that’s what I had on hand), and it turned out amazing! Thanks so much for the great recipe!!
