Vanilla Toffee Protein Balls

I came across this delicious flavor of pea protein, vanilla Toffee from Now Sports. I blended it in my coffee, made a shake with it and then decided to make protein balls! They came out delicious and are super easy to make! They definitely satisfy your sweet tooth but are packed with protein so you don’t eat too many!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Now Sports Vanilla Toffee pea protein
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup of flaxmeal
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup organic peanut butter
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla

Directions:

Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Roll into one inch balls and keep in the fridge. You can also store them in a freezer bag and freeze them to keep longer. These are a great snack to eat when you are headed to the gym or even post-workout! Enjoy!

Spinach & Seitan Chickpea Omelet

It’s a snowy day and I was craving tofu eggs again, but I was out of tofu. So I whipped up this recipe with chickpea flour. Chickpea flour is high in fiber and protein. Just a 1/4 cup has 6 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber! So give this recipe a try and let me know what you think!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp pink Himalayan sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup raw spinach
  • 1/4 cup seitan crumbles
  • Coconut oil spray to grease the pan
  • Hot sauce (optional)

Directions:

Mix all healthy the ingredients except for the spinach and seitan in a bowl. Heat pan and spray with coconut oil over medium heat. Pour batter into pan and put the spinach and seitan on top. Let it cook about 5 minutes or just until you can flip the omelet with a spatula. Cook for 1 more minute. Sprinkle wth a little salt and hot sauce and enjoy!

Avocado Smoothie Bowl

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 cup raw spinach
  • 1 tsp spirulina

  • 1/4 cup roasted red pepper, cut into strips
  • 2 large garlic stuffed green olives, sliced
