Protein balls

I made these protein balls after seeing the recipe on a fellow blogger's website. OMG. They are SO GOOD. They tasted exactly like cookie dough, just like Gina promised! Yum! I didn't have quite enough for a tablespoon of maple sugar so I added in a generous squeeze of agave nectar. I'm going to have to hide these away so I don't tempt myself.
2 tablespoons of chocolate whey powder
2 tablespoons almond butter
2 tablespoons coconut flakes
1 tablespoon and 1/2 of maple syrup and agave nectar
sprinkle of sea salt
generous sprinkle of cinnamon
tablespoon of dark chocolate chips
Ingredients mixed in the food processor and formed into balls:
the balls *hehe* have a nice crunchy texture from the protein powder and I love the almond butter taste with the sweetness the honey/agave nectar imparts. I have a feeling I'm going to be making more of these!!

Breakfast this morning:
Another protein and complex carb filled breakfast consisting of an omelete with sauteed yellow peppers, shallots and peppered boursin cheese on whole grain toast. A proper breakfast to fuel me through a day of outdoor training/assessments. We couldn't have asked for better weather today. Regent's Park was sunny and beautiful. oh and I passed! The only downside to this day was my ankle and the mud stains on my shoes!!

Dinner tonight was a mix of Bigham's mac n' cheese and turkey escalopes and veggies from T's work cafeteria. I only had to pop the mac n cheese in the oven. Simple is exactly what I needed after today's workouts. My body is so sore!
chocolate creme filled cake. It wasn't very good but somehow it managed to disappear. Hate it when that happens!

Exciting news... Tanya Beardsley is coming to London to teach a Zumba masterclass FREE to Zin members. I signed up and am SUPER stoked. She IS the Zumba Queen. :o) :o)
