Snacks

Veggie smoothie!
Spinach, kale, broccoli, bit of garlic, blueberries, flaxseeds, spirulina powder, chia seeds and still water. This is what I have for snack every day. If I just exercised before I add a banana, as the sugar will just go straight to fuel my muscles. And I promise you will get used to the flavour
Handful of almonds/walnuts/seeds and an apple

A bowl of berries and a pear/apple

A protein shake

Half an avocado with a bit of feta cheese (only goats feta cheese)

Original Ryvita with avocado

Hummus and carrots

Egg and mushrooms




 

The Viking Protein Balls!

I wanted to make protein balls that are not high in carbs. Most bars and balls that say they are protein hit ones, are in fact extremely full of carbs. ( and not even the better carbs ) This is also why I did not want to add any for example goji berries or syrup which is very popular to do.

You will need:

 Mug of Hemp seeds. I get mine in the Revital health shop from Linwoods.

  • Hemp seeds are amazing. Very high in omega 3 and protein with iron and magnesium.

 About 70 gr of cashews

 Bag of Almonds ( 200 gr)

 2 Tablespoons of organic raw cacao powder

 1 tablespoon cinnamon.

 Almond milk.

 Organic Dessicated Coconut

 -Add all the dry stuff together, then put a bit of the Almond milk and blend it. Watch the texture, and keep on adding a little bit of milk until you see that it is soft but still together enough to make it into balls. Then roll the balls in the coconut.   Place in fridge.

I got 9 balls out of mine (had already eaten one when I took the picture hahaha!). If you do not want to have that much of almonds, you can up the hemp seeds and less the almonds.  

This is great to have as a part of a meal, after you train, or as a snack when needed.
