Perfect Protein Balls

These little balls of goodness are easily becoming a staple in my home. They are so easy to grab when I am on the go or when I need something quick to satisfy my sweet tooth during the week. These can be made so many different ways but the recipe below is my absolutely favorite.

  • 3/4 C.  peanut butter (or your favorite nut butter)
  • 1/4 C. coconut oil
  • 1/3 C. honey
  • 1 1/2 C. Gluten Free rolled oats
  • 2/3 C. protein powder
  • 4 scoops Vital proteins Collagen Peptides (optional)
  • 1/4 t. salt (if your nut butter is unsalted, use 1/2 t.)
  • 1/4 C. mini chocolate chips

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Roll into 20 bite-sized balls. Store in refrigerator. Enjoy!

Super Simple Low Carb Protein Smoothie

Prior to The FITT Cycle, I was a pro at eating low carb. Now, it's one of the hardest days I struggle with so I have come up with a super simple low carb protein smoothie that's perfect for the FAST Track carb cycle. I hope you enjoy :)

  • 1 cup unsweetened Almond Milk

  • 1 scoop protein powder of choice (I use Tone It Up - you can find it at Target...duh..because target is life)

  • 2 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen peptides

  • 2 T. Trader Joes mixed nut butter

  • 1/4 avocado (optional - adds creaminess and you literally can't taste it)

  • 1/2 cup of ice

Throw all the ingredients in a blender per the order and blend to your preference!! Also, feel free to swap out ingredients!!
