Raw Protein Bites

IMAG0464

These tasty little snacks are perfect pre or post gym or just to replace your usual chocolate fix.

I have used Purition 100% wholefood protein mix as the main protein ingredient. http://www.purition.co.uk

Recipe

20/30g Lucy bee Coconut Oil

2 scoops of Purition Breakfast Smoothie (or brown rice protein)

50g pre-soaked dates

2 tsp of Whole Earth Peanut Butter

1 tsp of maple syrup or honey

2 tsp of good quality dark chocolate chips or cocoa nibs

Shredded coconut to coat

Combine all ingredients in a blender, if the mixture is to sticky to roll into balls add a little more Purition or alternative protein. Then roll into balls and roll over the coconut to coat. They will keep in the fridge for about two weeks or freeze for three months.

Clean & Lean Protein Pancakes

I love a good breakfast and these pancakes hit the spot. I use a whole food product called PURITION which is 100% natural and can be used as a shake, added to yogurt or used as an ingredient like I have here. Take a look at their website www.purition.co.uk.

Recipe

2 scoops of Purition

1 whole egg

1 egg white

2 tsp of oats

splash of almond milk

frozen raspberries, Greek yogurt and a little maple syrup to finish

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and pour half into a small frying pan (recipe will make two pancakes). When pancakes are done turn out on to a plate turn off heat and use residual heat to warm raspberries through, add to Greek yogurt and dollop on top of your delicious pancakes…yum.

Ginger

Add some fresh grated ginger to hot water for a refreshing, soothing digestive drink.

Dirty Carrots

A lovely bunch of dirty…carrots, and a granary Boule from my local farm shop. There is something satisfying about buying dirty veg…a sense of connecting with nature! We buy washed and prepared carrots from the supermarkets all nicely packaged but, I often feel disappointed by the taste.

So I decided to cook the first stew of the season and went to my farm shop for some extras. There sitting in the basket were a lovely bunch of dirty carrots with their tops on…lovely! I was happy to pay the £1.55 for the bunch even though I had to wash them myself….funny that! I felt I was getting more for my money and the taste confirmed it; full of earthy flavour and colour. My stew was tasty and a slice of my Boule topped it off perfectly!
