Random Friday Thoughts

Filed under: Nutrition

I have to work in Lewiston all day today with for my old man, so unfortunately I have to make this one short and sweet, but that doesn’t mean that it is light on some cool content.

I actually have some pretty exciting news that I am quite pleased to announce today.

1. I am sure a lot of you read Eric Cressey’s blog and are a part of his newsletter. Those of you who are undoubtedly heard about his new project, Show and Go.

I had the privilege of being at CP when Eric tested the program on some guinea pigs, including a good friend of mine from college who increased his deadlift by 40lbs in 4 months (to 405), so I know how well the training program works.

The best part about all this is that Eric wanted a stronger nutrition component to go along with Show and Go than he had for Maximum Strength, and he asked me to write it! Keep in eye out over the next month or so for the release of Show and Go, my very first product!

2. I have discovered that making my oatmeal with unsweetened vanilla almond milk is absolutely glorious. I had always been a water man myself since I microwave my old-fashioned oats (it is the one and only thin I use the microwave for), and I definitely didn’t want to microwave milk due to the 7-keto cholesterol creation.

Earlier this week I was in the mood for some oatmeal, saw the almond, decided to do a little experimenting, and it was awesome. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

3. A reader sent me a question a while back about the quality of goat milk protein. Those of you who struggle with cow’s milk, or who simply choose not to consume it or any of it’s products often have limited options for protein powders. Goat milk can often be a viable option for you, as it is usually well tolerated by people with sensitivity to cow’s milk.

Fortunately a company called Mt. Capra has come up with what appears to be a solid alternative to cow’s milk proteins. While I haven’t personally tried them, their Caprotein and Double Bonded Protein seem to be high quality products, full of high quality protein (15-20 grams per serving), and the Double Bonded Protein is quite reasonably priced for a rather unique item.

For those of you in the market for an alternative to cow’s whey, give it a try and let me know what you think!

    No questions here, I just wanted to say thank you to you for being a sterling example of what it mans to be a class act. You’re humble, generous with your knowledge, hard working, and deserving of every bit of success that comes your way and more. So thank you again for being such a stand-up guy in a world full of many pretenders.

  2. Jonathan Stewart Says:

    Congratulations Brian, that’s a huge opportunity, can’t wait to see the finished product!

    You had to work in Lewiston? Damn you are lucky! Ha! What a beautiful city, especially the Knox Street area. Hopefully you hit up Gippers across the river and had a coldie with my boy Jay.

  4. Adam Says:

    So can you put the almond milk in the microwave without the fear of 7-keto creation?

  5. Brian St. Pierre Says:


    Yes because plant-based foods do not have any cholesterol to begin with, so no oxidized cholesterol could be made from them.

    I am still not a huge fan of the microwave, but since I use it less than once a week, I am not too worried about it.

  6. Adam Says:

    Alright well I use the microwave for my
    oatmeal every morning… miss you Brian! <333

  7. Brian St. Pierre Says:

    Thanks Adam. I will be back down to CP in late September, I hope to actually see you this time.
