Clean slate, yes, it's Monday! 7-17-17 this date must signify a fresh start for YOU! Let's make the 2nd half of 2017 be your best! Today, let's focus on being thankful for the body that you have and set new goals to ensure you are treating your body with care and respect!
One new goal could be to increase the amount of high quality protein that you include in your daily nutrition plan! Protein is an essential food for repairing muscle tissue, and for keeping you feeling full for longer. High protein snacks should be consumed after 30-45 minutes after workouts for maximum muscle building and repair benefits, or should be consumed as a snack during the day to fight cravings and help manage weight.
Here are my top 4 favorites:
- 1 hard boiled egg- 8g
- 1/2 cup chickpeas- 18g
- 1/2 cup cashews- 16g
- 3 oz of tuna- 25g
Try out these great high protein snacks and start your healthy lifestyle with a delicious, higher protein nutrition plan!
Here is a high protein healthy popsicle to try this week!
Strawberry Mango Chai Popsicle
- 1 1/2 cup – strawberries
- 1 1/4 cup – coconut water
- 1 teaspoon – honey
- 4 teaspoon – chia seeds
- 1 1/2 cup pieces – mango
Puree strawberries (fresh or frozen) with half of the coconut water in a blender or food processor. Taste the mixture and blend in honey to desired sweetness, if needed. Stir in 2 teaspoons of chia seeds. Set aside. Puree mango (fresh or frozen) with the other half of the coconut water in a blender or food processor. Taste the mixture and blend in honey to desired sweetness, if needed. Stir in the remaining 2 teaspoons of chia seeds. Alternately pour each fruit mixture (for a marbled look) into popsicle molds and freeze until set. Makes 10 (3 ounce) popsicles. If you have the Norpro Ice Pop Maker let it freeze for 45 minutes and then add my wooden sticks so they stay in place better and the lid will come off easier.
