When you need a frosty treat, there’s nothing guilty about this dessert. It’s hydrating (thanks to the sneaky cucumber), packed with potassium AND tastes delish. You can make it choc-chip by stirring in cacao nibs too, if you’re partial to cookie dough ice-cream (who isn’t?!). Spirulina is a rich vegetable protein, and is used widely to boost the immune system thanks to its plethora of vitamins and minerals. It is also said to detox the body of heavy metals – now that’s one hard-working dessert!
Healthy and delicious post-workout snacks packed full of protein, that actually taste good!
Even if you’re at the top of your smoothie bowl game, you probably haven’t tried cauliflower in your creations. When raw and frozen, it’s actually quite tasteless (and full of vitamins that can be lost in cooking). Use it to thicken your next smoothie and sub out some of the usual frozen banana for a lower sugar option.
Tea smoothies are nothing new, but pimping them up to make them a breakfast worthy-dish takes them to new heights. You can make this one the night before and store it in a thermos for a warm start in a flash.
If your patient enough to soak these oats in milk the night before, that 5 minutes of prep makes this recipe incredibly creamy. As a sufferer of anaemia, I love to add molasses as a sweetener because it provides a dose of iron. Aside from that, it’s reminiscent of gingerbread cookies, which needs no further explanation! So, good.
How I haven’t tried making one of these before is beyond me. Think the lusciousness of velvety hot chocolate, in a thick nourishing porridge that will get you warmed up even on the coldest of mornings.
‘Tis the season for blueberries here in Aus. They’re in abundance and cheap until March, so I try to get my fill in the summer months when they’re at their tastiest and locally sourced. Aside from being once of the most nutrient dense fruits around, they make the most amazing ice-cream that can legit double up as a brekkie bowl when your post-Christmas sugar crash is looming. The natural sweetness they provide kills sugar cravings and their fibre keeps you fuller for longer too!
What’s better than having a raw vegan Snickers bar? One that is rich in protein, GOOD fats (to those nasty trans ones) and at the same time tasting just as delicious as the actual Snickers. Because “You’re not you when you’re hungry,” right?!
Sometimes I don’t feel like having an omelette after a workout. It’s not always easy *or palatable* to get your protein needs. After much testing *poor me* this muffin recipe gets the Fit Foodie tick of approval and is a great post-workout snack. Not dissimilar in taste to your typical cafe muffin, but this one is loaded with muscle-loving amino acids that help build and repair. Also known as super muffins. That’s right.
