This isn’t precisely a ‘news flash’ but I, like many in the sports performance community, enjoy healthy food and have so throughout my life. Balancing between ‘healthy diet’ and public discussion is a difficult test as I always have enjoyed food that is nutritious and never interested in processed items.
Somewhere along the lines of our society forgetting its roots, the idea that healthy food did not taste good gained a foothold. Of course nonsense and one of the first steps in rebuilding appreciation for nutritious food is understand it is great tasting and can suit many needs.
Case in point is snack food and rather than torture your life, as well as your home with foul ingredients, a home-made protein bar supplies extraordinary nutrition, satisfies a ‘sweet tooth’ and very transportable. One of my preferred protein bars are made as such:
• 1 cup OxyELITE Protein™
• 1½ cup Oats
• 1 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
• 1 cup sesame and sunflower seed (equal parts) mix
• ½ cup of Greek yoghurt
• ½ cup of maple syrup
• ½ cup of natural peanut butter
Pulse oats in food processor to 'break up' but before turning in a flour consistency.
Mix all dry goods together, in large mixing bowl before adding liquid components of recipe. Stir together until consistent
On a large greased pan, place mixture batter, roll flat and place in oven for fifteen to twenty minutes. Allow to cool before placing in a freezer for ten minutes.
