Date Me

The best snack to stop that hungry feeling.. this! Filled dates are one of my favourite snacks. They are so tasty, super filling and a great snack for when you work out. They provide you with energy (I always eat 2-3 dates before I hit the gym and I notice a huge difference), protein and healthy fats. They also just look super nice and make a nice party food. I can hardly call this a recipe as it’s so easy, but promise me that you will make these? And let me know if you liked them. Will you make them with peanut butter or almond butter? I find it hard to choose which one I like best. You can also use both of course.

Oatshew

img_6691A creamy, filling and delicious breakfast for champions. This breakfast is super nutritious and full of goodness. I often eat this after my work out. It’s full of proteins, fibres and good fats. Great for my body to release some new energy and to heal my muscles. As I most of the time work out in the evenings, I soak the cashews and seeds overnight. I blend it the next morning and then add the oats and the coconut. This way it’s ready for me when I come back in the evening. I don’t always add fruit, sometimes just peanut butter is nice enough. Only just sometimes I like to add some berries. Especially blueberries are a favourite. Give this recipe a try, especially when you’re a very busy and active person.
