Ever get bored with the same food routine when on an exercise program? I love experimenting in the kitchen, and finding new ways to get the most nutrition without sacrificing taste and variety. Today's pre-workout snack= Chocolate Banana Rice Cake ☺️
You will need:
1 rice cake (I used Lundberg Organic Wild Rice cakes, found at most grocery stores) 1/2 scoop of chocolate protein powder of choice (I used this one) 1 tbsp peanut butter powder (PB Fit is a great option, you can get it here on Amazon!) 1/2 medium banana, sliced Sprinkle of cinnamon water
Prepare your chocolate topping by combining the protein and peanut butter powder, then add water gradually 1 tsp at a time until desired consistency is reached. My husband equated this to Nutella, which I was pretty pleased with, that was after adding about 2 l/2 tbsp of water, but you may desire yours thinner or thicker. Next, spread the mixture over the rice cake, top with sliced banana and sprinkle with cinnamon. This is a delicious treat any time of the day! Healthy, high in protein and delicious! Hope you enjoy ❤️
I try to eat as many whole foods throughout the day as possible, but sometimes you need a pre-packaged, easy to grab snack to keep you going between meals. Here are just a few of my favorite options for Grab-and-Go snacks.
Smoothies can add nutrients and refresh you during the day!
Starting with a base of fresh or frozen fruit, adding some leafy green veggies, whole milk or a plant based alternative, and a from of healthy fats and protein is the foundation of a great smoothie! The possibilities are endless!
