Post-Workout Snacks

Healthy and delicious post-workout snacks packed full of protein, that actually taste good!

Supergreens Smoothie Bowl

Supergreens Smoothie Bowl

Want a nourishing breakfast in under 5 minutes? This one takes the same time as pouring milk on top of your coco pops, and is around 1 million times better for you*. Add to a blender, and turn ‘ON’…you can do that right?! Have this when you’re feeling under the weather to replenish vitamins and minerals, or just gobble because it will make you feel awesome, and tastes kinda like banana milkshake.

*maths is not my strong point

Award-Worthy Coconut Popcorn

I lurrrrve popcorn. Horrified when I moved from the UK that the Aussies like it savoury. What the?! So as ever…time to make my own. When you’re craving a snack (or a Friday movie night at home), its off to the kitchen to make a bowl of my award-worthy popcorn. It’s so simple to make and super healthy for both adults and children – with a good amount of vitamin E!

Salted Caramel Brekkie Bowl

Two-Minute Salted Caramel Smoothie Bowl

Salt + caramel. Is there anything better? Actually, yes. A healthy version. This is one of my go-to breakfasts after an intense morning workout. It helps to replenish protein and glycogen stores and build lean muscle (which in turn burns calories – yay!). The Maca is gives the dish a toffee flavour, and works to alleviate anxiety and stress in the body. It’s also high in iron and is great for boosting energy – much needed on a Monday morning. Whip it up in under 2 minutes for a delicious dessert too.

Passionfruit & Pomegranate Bark

They say a picture speaks a thousand words, so I’ll let this one speak for itself. Prepped in 2 minutes, this recipe is super simple and insanely delicious. You’d never know it was healthy to boot. Kick your synthetic protein bars to the curb – this is your sweet natural replacement.

Protein Pumpkin Oatmeal with Egg Whites

Protein Pumpkin Oatmeal with Egg Whites

I know adding egg whites to your morning oats sounds a little odd, but it’s actually pretty amazing. It makes for a deliciously fluffy (and wonderfully filling) breakfast, supercharged with plenty of protein. The key is to avoid scrambling the eggs by continuously stirring when added – it’s a little bit of effort for a lot of gain. Once you’ve tried them you’ll never go back…pinky swear.

Sour Cherry & Vanilla Bites

It’s cherry season in Aus, but for me that means hours at the sink with the new (and very unnecessary) kitchen gadget removing the pits. While fresh fruit is always best, it’s sometimes nice just to skip the hard labour and opt for the dried option instead. These delicious sour cherry bites are great when you just want something a little sweet to round off a dinner (or even breakfast, in my case) but you don’t want to devour a whole bowl of pud. This one’s for you, snacky sweet lovers… high protein, raw, gluten free: the perfect way to keep up that New Year’s resolution!

Espresso & Vanilla Milkshake

Espresso & Vanilla ‘Milkshake’

This dairy-free ‘milkshake’ is packed with 26g of protein and is low in calories (75 to be exact!), leaving you full + satisfied minus the food baby. I’m expecting a lot of gasps at the required use of tofu, but I promise you won’t taste it. Does tofu even taste?! Anyway, just enjoy the creamy texture, zero sugar and much-needed caffeine for a breakfast on-the-go, or as post-workout re-fuel for those tired muscles!

Chocolate Protein Mini Muffins

Chocolate Protein Mini Muffins

*My muffins bring all the (gym) boys to the yard*

Need a healthy pick-me-up? These mini chocolate muffins are where it’s at. These babies are awesome for chocolate cravings, are sugar free (you’re sweet enough, right?) and are totally gluten + dairy free. Not only that, they’re boosted with additional protein, which acts as the building block for your bones and muscles. It’s also one of the only nutrients your body can’t produce itself, so you have to supply it with a steady stream throughout the day.

Biology not your thing? Basically, just eat these.

Sweet Glazed Almonds

Sweet Glazed Almonds

Ever wonder what to eat at Christmas without diving into that box of sugar-laden chocolates? Try these on for size. The cinnamon offers a metabolism boost and the rice malt syrup won’t spike your blood sugar – so you might just be able to stop at one handful!

Superfood Caramels

Superfood Caramels

These tasty caramels come totally guilt-free. Tahini is simply ground sesame seeds – full of healthy fats and nutrients to nourish your body. Throw in some metabolism-boosting coconut oil, low GI Sweetner, high antioxidant cacao powder and an awesome superfood powder, and really this could be medicine. Right? Baobab powder has a delicious caramelised pear flavour. It’s high in fibre, vitamin C, potassium (great for workout recovery), and acts as a natural prebiotic. If you can’t lay your hands on any, there’s some handy substitutions available in the Tips section below.
