Sundays are great for so many reasons. I love Sunday Funday! Sundays are filled with family, football, rest AND food! I do relax a little on my eating on the weekend. But only a little. I work too hard to throw all my hard work out the window. I love Sundays because it is one day where I can be completely lazy and relax. Today I am engrossed in a Novel while watching football playoffs.
But we all need to eat right? And it is important to eat every 2-3 hours to keep metabolism activated and burning fat. It can be easy to grab a salty, fatty snack on a day like today. But I have two snack ideas for you that take only a few minutes and are so yummy you will feel like you are cheating!
Protein Bites – these are delish!
What you need: 1/2 cup of PB (I LOVE NUT BUTTER). I use PB2. Less calories! Less fat, less sugar, and yummy.
2 tsp flaxseed – ground.
1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes – (I LOVE COCONUT).
1/3 cup protein powder – (I use chocolate).
1/2 cup of rolled oats.
Melt PB2 and honey in a bowl.
Add protein, coconut, rolled oats, amend flaxseed. It will be thick.
Add the mixture to a dish and refrigerate.
I like to get my hands dirty tho, so I roll the mixture into little balls and place on dish to be cooled in fridge.
2 make a great snack!
This one is super easy. 1 cup Plain Greek Yogurt.
Add 2 Tbsp of PB2 and cinnamon to taste. Mix well.
These snacks will give you your protein, fats, and carbs to be a fulfilling snack. The plus is that I was able to keep reading my novel, not miss a play, and still eat well without having to slave in the kitchen! Hope you are having a lazy Sunday Funday too!
