Recipe: Protein-rich bite-size Snack

Recipe: Protein-rich bite-size Snack | ecogreenlove

Everyday since this summer I set myself a goal of going for a walk everyday or walk at least 25kms per week. I have managed to be constant, but now in autumn I actually increased my goal to 40kms per week besides going to swim at least 3x/week for 30mins. It feels so good to be active without exercise machines at home or going to the gym. Is possible and is even more satisfying because I get to see the sunrise and I’m more in contact with nature, the scenery in Heidelberg is just beautiful in any season of the year (this I have learned from my walks) and I get to start my day in a better mood.

So how is this connected to today’s recipe? Well, because this is what I eat if I feel hungry. I always eat carbs-rich breakfast/meal as pre-workout snack (about 2hrs before) but if I start to get appetite then I eat one of these bite-size snacks, just one is enough but can also be eaten as post workout. And are so easy and quick to make. So hopefully you’ll try the recipe and works as well for you as it has for me. Enjoy!

What is exercise fact vs myth? The craze surrounding exercise, weight, health, and fitness in America is a curious thing. Huge government subsidies make grains (like sugary cereals and nutritionally-empty white bread) artificially inexpensive. Fast food like McDonalds and Wendy’s is some of the cheapest commercially available food in the world.

Advertising for bad food, beer, and liquor is everywhere. However, who is always hocking this terrible food and booze? Some of the fittest, most attractive people around. People used in advertisements, if not outright fit and athletic, are at least trim and not overweight or obese.

“Do you feel hungry and tired all the time? Do short bursts of workout make you feel lethargic and exhausted? Then you might be suffering from protein deficiency. Protein is a macro nutrient composed of amino acids. It is the building block of life. Our body can produce several amino acids required for protein production, but there is a set of essential amino acids that can be obtained from animal and plant sources only. Protein helps to break down the amino acids that promote cell growth and repair. The excess protein consumed is converted into energy by the body. Several researches have also suggested that protein in the form of lean meat, beans, nuts and dairy food can promote weight loss and reduce the risk of heart diseases. It takes a long time to be digested by the body, keeping you full for a longer time.”
