I hope your Tuesday is off to a fabulous start! Mine is going great so far. I kicked the day off with at 7 AM Pilates Mat class and 9 AM Barre class fueled by Peanut Almond Chia Protein Bites. Both classes were great and the Peanut Almond Chia Protein Bites have to be my new favorite version of my original chia power balls. Thanks to my garage workout and Barre class yesterday, the following picture is very appropriate.
I woke up with a very sore booty and my triceps are giving me some love as well! After my two classes this morning, my legs are definitely toast and ready for a little R&R this afternoon. After my classes, I was starving so I popped two more of these bad boys in my mouth before hopping in the shower.
They are full of protein from the PB2 powder, almond butter, and coconut flour, healthy fats (omega 3's) from the chia seeds and flax seeds, and complex carbohydrates from the dates, seeds, and coconut flour. These protein bits are perfect to grab for a quick snack before or after a workout! Plus, they are super simple to make! Belle helped me whip them up yesterday in about 10 minutes.
- 7 pitted majool dates
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup flaxseeds
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/3 cup PB2
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3 tbsp. almond butter (could sub any nutter butter
Let me know if you give them a try. I'm off to get a little bit more work done before the crazy tiny human wakes up from her nap. I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your Tuesday.
I'm linking up with Sara, at Lake Shore Runner, for Tried It Tuesday!
What is your favorite pre or post workout snack?
Do you enjoy being sore? I actually LOVE it. It lets me know I worked hard and woke my body up!
