I must say… making habits ain’t easy.What do I mean by habits?
I mean the habit of making sure you are ready for the day; whether it’s prepping all the bottles or having an idea of what to cook for dinner. For this month I want to focus on “making habits” and getting organized.I want to get better about meal prepping and prepping in general. I find that I am a hott mess half the time when I walk out the door.
I mean how many parents are super together when they have a less than one year old human in the house?My workouts have been always on point and I must thank my current work situation for that; I’m a personal trainer and fitness instructor.I want to get back to making more “protein on the go” snacks. I have a bunch of different recipes on Nutritiously Sweet that I thought I’d share one here via Fit Coffee Mom. They are super simple to make too! Literally what ever you feel like having, mix it in! You can always double or triple up the recipe if you’d like.Dark Chocolate Bites Ingredients (Inspired by this recipe):
- 1 Tbsp of Natural Peanut Butter (or any choice of nut butter)
- 3 Tbsps of Vanilla Protein Powder
- 1.5 oz. [70% or higher] Dark Chocolate, Melted
- 1-2 tsps of Unsweetened Almond or Soy Milk
- Mix’ins (optional): chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and such.
Take all the ingredients and mix together to form a soft “cookie” dough, that can be made into ball either using your hands or melon scooper.Roll into six bites, then let them set in the fridge for 5-10 minutes. I used vanilla protein powder, but have fun with it!
Try using chocolate or peanut butter protein powder, make it your own. Use one or two for a snack/ protein fuel “on the go.”
[Pictured ABOVE w/ Chia] Each bite comes to about 60 calories, 5 carbs, 3g fat, 4g protein and 2g fiber.
This is just an estimate as the numbers will vary based on what type of chocolate, milk, protein powder and mix’in’s you choose.
Feel free to make it vegan by using your favorite vegan protein powder. Vega is cool 😉
I’m linking it with Amanda for Think out LOUD Thursdays. Thanks for hosting lady!Question: What’s your favorite protein snack or bar?
