My Favorite Snack For Weight Loss, Energy, and Vitality - Protein Balls


Energy Balls for Vitality

It sounds magical, doesn't it? A snack that is super delicious, healthy, nutritious, and may even help whittle your waistline. It’s not imaginary; it’s…

The protein ball.

These bite-sized snacks are the perfect way to enjoy something yummy while also packing a whopping nutritional punch.

You can use any kind of protein powder for these balls. I like to use collagen, but I also highly recommend giving hemp protein powder a try. Living Harvest and Nutiva are two great brands of unrefined, pure hemp protein.



Protein balls have tons of healthy ingredients.

In one serving, you’re getting:
● Antioxidants from raw cacao
● Omega-3s from flax seeds and hemp seeds
● Magnesium for muscle relaxation from sunflower seeds and raw cacao
● Anti-parasitic and anti-viral properties of shredded coconut
● A metabolic boost from coconut oil

Try whipping up this tasty treat to satisfy your taste buds AND do your health a favor!
