Healthy Snacks: Protein Shake

This one is great for when you live a busy life and need a snack on the go.

Protein shakes are quick and easy to prep and drink, while giving you a boost of protein without any unnecessary calories or carbs. Most protein shakes are vegetarian friendly too so you are able to have these whatever your lifestyle.

These shakes can really fill you up and keep you fuller for longer, with a wide range of flavours for you to try.

My Protein has become a very well and trusted protein company, as well as being very good for giving you value for money. Personally this is the one I use and always go for any Chocolatey flavours available.

Client Recipe: Pizza

So today we have something special and new…

If you can remember a while back I did a post about ‘Lo-Dough’. If you haven’t seen it, check it out here.

Well one of our clients has been baking some great recipes with this and bringing it in for us to try.

It’s safe to say our PT Abbie has loved everything thats been brought in because she’s eaten every last crum.

Ingredients

  • 30g Mozzarella Grated Cheese
  • 25g Danish pepperoni
  • 30g be good to yourself mature grated cheese (50% less fat)
  • 75g tomato and basil pizza topper
  • lo-dough

Directions

  • Pre heat oven to 250C/475F/Gas9
  • Spray a frying pan with fry-Light and gently fry 1 slice of lo-dough on both sides (stops it being soggy)
  • Spread with pizza sauce as close to the edges as possible.
  • Mix the mozzarella and cheddar together and sprinkle two thirds over the pizza sauce.
  • Add your toppings – this one is with pepperoni, but you can add anything, just adjust the calories accordingly.
  • Add the rest of the cheese.
  • Cook until the cheese is bubbling and any meat you’ve added is cooked through (between 7 and 12 minutes)

This recipe comes to 376 calories, but depending on the toppings you use and and different products, the calories could change slightly.

Healthy Snacks: Propercorn

Todays post on a healthier snack is propercorn. No I haven’t made a spelling mistake it is spelt “Propercorn”.

Propercorn is a relatively new brand of popcorn, that seems to have been a big hit in the supermarkets!

They come in a variety of flavours, from chocolate, to sour cream and black pepper. So theres plenty of flavours to choose from.

Each bag comes with less than 136kcal and they go as low as 88kcal per bag, which means you aren’t sacrificing flavour for calories.

Also leading on from last weeks post, Propercorn has much lower sugar contents than usual popcorn products aiding in your goal for weight loss.

As well as the above, they are also fairtrade, gluten free and vegetarian.

Go try Propercorn if you haven’t already, and let us know what your favourite flavour is!
