I advocate 3 main meals and 2 snacks each day in order to stabilise blood sugar levels and boost metabolism. You can take a look at a day on my plate here. Snacks should always contain protein. When you’re hungry or craving sweets it is actually your body asking for protein. So when you get the 3pm sweet craving, eat some good quality protein. I’ve written more about protein here. Today I’m sharing my favourite protein smoothie (if you’re after some more simple high protein snacks head over here).
1/3 cup frozen raspberries
1 frozen banana
2 cups coconut water
1 serving protein powder (natural)
2 tablespoon cacao powder
1 teaspoon rosewater
Place all ingredients into your blender. Process until smooth. Pour into a cup and enjoy.
