Sweet tooth? Looking for something sweet and nutritious? Give these a try.
If you are cutting calories to lose weight, the last thing you want to do is to cut out important nutrients. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting something sweet to eat, you are human after all. But not all sweet foods are made equal, so it makes sense to find nutritious ways to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Give this recipe a try. I used hydrolysed collagen and whey protein isolate (WPI) as an additional protein source, but you could replace these with vegan protein powder or egg white protein powder if you can't tolerate dairy.
Protein Choc Nut Balls
Tracking Food Intake?
If you are tracking your food intake, you can add this recipe to MyFitnessPal. I made 31 balls from the ingredients above, but you can make more or less, depending on your needs. All you need to do is add the correct number of servings the the recipe when you create it so that you receive the correct calories and macros per serving.
I hope you love the recipe. Share your photos with me when you make them. I love seeing other peoples recipes and what they add that is different to me. Instead of cocoa powder you could add Maca Powder or Mesquite. You could replace some of the almonds with other nuts or chia seeds. The possibilities are endless so have a go and experiment. Most of all, enjoy a sweet treat that is nourishing your body.
Hello, I am Melanie Briony and I am a fitness and lifestyle coach who supports midlife women (over 40) as they move into the peri and post-menopause years. This is a huge time of change for a woman, nothing is as it used to be. The restrictive diets and hard exercise regimes that worked in your 30s just won’t cut it anymore. I am here to show you how your changing hormones are impacting your body and what you can do to take back the reins and bring about positive change. At midlife, a woman has to learn how to work ‘with’ her body. This includes - managing stress, eating the right foods at the right time, sleeping longer, saying no more often and taking back her power. “You are not about to disappear into the mist of old age, you have the strength and courage to move through this transition and come out the other side as a stronger and wiser version of you”. Contact Melanie to find out more about how she can support you.
