Hi there friendly friends and happy Thursday- the day before the day when everyone gets excited for the weekend! You excited yet??
Anywho, today I have a recipe for you!! Yay!
I love exercise- it makes me feel good, sets me up for the day with a positive mindset and a really good feeling of exhaustion that's buzzing with endorphins and a fighting attitude to crush the day! However, as I am one of those people who can't crush said workouts with food in the belly (when I had to do track and races at school following lunch/ breakfast etc. I definitely did not feel/ perform my best my friends- and let's not even talk about how heavy I felt trying to run after school when I first started running back in year 9.
So after I crush it with the sweaty sweat sesh's I know I gotta refuel and the other day after a particularly brutal workout I knew I needed more than just fuel- I needed the optimum recovery fuel- plenty of protein, carbs, healthy fat and a whole bunch of other essential micro nutrients to nourish the body!
Enter this creation:
Vanilla protein turmeric oat truffles
1 cup rolled oats
2 pitted dates
1 scoop vegan vanilla protein powder
a few big dashes of turmeric
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 heaped tablespoon peanut butter (any nut butter with do)
1 teaspoon maca powder (optional- adds a nice caramel-y flavour along with the dates)
1/3-1/2 cup almond milk
1. Place all of the ingredients into a high speed blender and blend on high until smooth and combined
