Protein Energy Balls

I’ve only made these a couple of times  but they’re a great little protein snack if you’re out and about and need a protein boost. They’re also super convenient if you’re a morning gym person (defo not me, but I’m trying) and need to grab something to give you an energy boost pre workout. Make these the night before and they can be left in the fridge for up to a week and are great to help with sugar cravings.

What I eat in a day!

There’s nothing like the satisfaction of going to bed after a whole day of eating clean.

What I eat each day does tend to vary, as I like changing my meals up but when I was on placement I would meal prep more or less the same breakfast and dinners to remain consistent with my weekly goals alongside gyming every day.

Healthy Banana Bread

Overripe bananas? make some banana bread! It’s great for a dessert, snack or breakfast on the go and substitutes all the bad ingredients for natural whole ingredients. The riper bananas you have the naturally sweeter the bread will taste and this recipe contains no added sugar or oil.

Now I’ll have to be honest I rarely weigh my food when it comes to cooking or baking as I prefer to just experiment and throw things into a bowl but I will do my best to give an accurate representation of how I made this delicious bread!

My very first Smoothie Bowl!

Welcome to my very first blog post, I thought I’d start by sharing my attempt at making my first smoothie bowl. Now don’t get me wrong I used to make smoothies religiously and take them to work where I would have to spend at least 10 minutes discussing my smoothie ingredients with my colleagues every day. Anyhow I stopped making them for a while, mainly because I got super lazy but also because I would prefer eating raw fruit and veg and smoothies can sometimes increase sugar content levels, which although natural, can still be too much. But I’ve always liked how appealing smoothie bowls look and as they were flooding my Instagram I thought I’d give it a go.
