80 Ways to Use GENEPRO: the Official GENEPRO Cookbook

80 Ways to Use GENEPRO: the Official GENEPRO Cookbook

Whether you're training for a marathon or recovering from bariatric surgery, you're going to need plenty of protein in your diet. In fact, everyone needs protein in order to survive. Frankly, we could care less about your level of fitness because: if you're reading this, it already means you are seeking ways to improve your diet and health.

We made GENEPRO so you can more effortlessly add high-quality protein to your diet without the empty calories. Most of our customers mix GENEPRO with their beverage of choice, but since GENEPRO is completely unflavored, we quickly discovered that customers were experimenting with it in cooked dishes. The best part is that many of them sent us messages about how delicious their GENEPRO-enhanced dishes turned out.

That made us realize, why not spice things up? Protein shouldn't be something relegated to a daily quota. It should become a source of satisfaction too. After learning from our customers, we tested out many of the recipes ourselves and collaborated with a professional chef to bring you: The GENEPRO cookbook featuring over 80 recipes! 

With just a few tweaks and a scoop of GENEPRO, you can significantly improve the nutritional composition of your favorite meals. Take the french omelette as an example: a french omelette typically has 325 calories with 20g of protein. For our version, we used a bit less eggs and instead add a scoop of GENEPRO as a supplementary protein source. The result is an omelette with just 244 calories and a whopping 52g of protein! 

The surprising part about all of this is the fact that the flavor doesn't suffer from the added protein. In fact, many customers have told us that it even improved, giving the dish a lighter and fluffier texture (especially apparent in baked goods). 

Feel free to experiment with the recipes found in the cookbook to suit your personal taste and protein needs. We aren't sticklers for strict guidelines, we just want to set you on the right path!


Still not sure where to begin? Read below to find some of our favorite recipes in the form of an example meal plan for a day. (Note: many of the dinner recipes are perfectly suitable for lunch, so in the cookbook doesn't have a specific "lunch" section. Some people may be skipping lunch altogether or eating breakfast for lunch too! You can also pack the dinner leftovers for lunch the next day.)


For breakfast, we like to start things off simple:

Cream Cheese and Chive Omelet:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 scoop of GENEPRO protein powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 tablespoon pepper
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, cubed salsa
Total Time: 15 min. Makes 2 servings.

  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.
  • Whisk the eggs, chives, water, salt and pepper. Add egg mixture to skillet (mixture should set immediately at edges).
  • As eggs set, push cooked edges toward the center, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. When the eggs are set, sprinkle cream cheese on one side; fold other side over filling. Slide omelet onto a plate; cut in half. Serve with salsa.
