Bodybuilding: 3 Sweet Treats That Double As A Protein Fix
Peanut Butter Balls
Elevate chocolate flavored whey protein powder by mixing 2 scoops with 2 cups of peanut butter and 4 tablespoons flaxseed. Mold the mix into walnut sized balls and freeze in the freezer on a flat tray for 2 hours before eating. Move the peanut butter balls to a freezer safe bag and keep frozen to make room for other food and maintain your frozen treat.
Flaxseed and Honey Toast
Raw honey is great for maintaining overall good health. Place it on toast and sprinkle with flaxseed for a nutty crunch. This food is best for pre-workout mode as it gives you the carb load that you need to get through a workout and a little extra protein to stay full longer.
Frozen Banana with Peanut Butter Spread
Frozen bananas taste great post-workout when you are feeling overheated. Dip them in peanut butter for a muscle building frozen treat. If you want a little more carbs with this snack, pair it with graham crackers.
Bodybuilding requires a steady intake of protein, carbs and healthy fats to be most effective. When you mix up the way you get the foods your body needs to grow, you won’t get burned out on the lifestyle, getting closer to the next goal met.
