As I touched on in my "Why protein is important for weight loss" post, breakfast can often be the meal where protein is lacking the most. That's why I would like to give you a few higher protein breakfast ideas. Because breakfast has to be quick for many people, all of the breakfast ideas below are very quick to make!
Protein bars are awesome, right? I love to have them as a quick snack, especially as I'm strength training on a regular basis. Unfortunately, the are also pretty expensive and often have ingredients that aren't absolutely necessary. These homemade vanilla cookie dough flavoured protein bars have only six ingredients, are easy and quick to make and taste amazing. Give them a try and let me know what you think!
Try these the next time you want to serve something fancy looking to health conscious guests!
Cookie dough is the ultimate comfort food. And it's usually high in refined sugar and refined flour. Although it's absolutely possible to enjoy treats like that occasionally and still reach your fitness goals, I've always enjoyed creating "healthified" versions of my favourite "treat" foods. Just because it's fun! The chickpeas in this recipe give you a good amount of plant based protein, and all the sweetness comes from just five fresh dates.
If you like matcha, chai flavour and chocolate, and if you would like to try something a little experimental, this "chocolate" bark recipe is for you!
Banana and chocolate aways works, and because I think it's important to still enjoy food while trying to eat healthy, I created this healthier version of banana chocolate chip pancakes that I'm sure you'll enjoy!
