Nutrition 101 and Go-Pro Balls

Last Saturday, I had the privilege of teaching two nutrition clinics to members of Orangetheory Fitness Coppell. While I learned that half an hour was not near enough time to talk about all the facets of healthy eating and properly fueling your body, I did get to share some valuable information with people who are genuinely interested in creating healthy habits.

One of my long-time clients and dear friends came with me and shared her testimony on how intuitive eating and whole foods have changed her body and life. I also spent some time in "show and tell" mode with several of my favorite food items from home.





I have to say that the best part was getting to share a delicious and easy-to-make treat with members. My Go-Pro Balls are a simple way to consume enough protein before and after workouts, and are especially good for people who need a quick snack in between point A and point B.


I made these particular balls two different ways, one recipe has more fiber and carbs, while the other has slightly more fat but more protein. One is pumpkin peanut butter and one is chocolate peanut butter. Both are freaking delicious!

Each ball has less than 30 calories, but if I was to make them just for myself, I'd make them a little bigger so that you'd only need to eat one and not want to eat 14.

Go-Pro Balls

Ingredients:

  • 4 scoops protein powder
  • 3 cups oats (dry)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (or 4 tbsp powdered peanut butter + 1/2 cup water)
  • 1/2 can pure pumpkin
  • 2-3 tbsp honey (optional)
  • stevia to taste (optional)
  • Sprinkle of sugar-free chocolate chips (optional)


Directions:

  1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until the batter becomes sticky. 
  2. Roll into 1-inch balls and line on tray to refrigerate for 1 hour. 
  3. (Makes 36-48 balls)

  4. The 30-grams-per-meal recommendation actually equates to a higher daily protein intake than what typical recommendations have called for (depending on body weight), which this study did not factor in. Best meal replacement shakes
