These no-bake chocolate fudge oat bars are the perfect, no fuss, quick and easy treat that takes no time to prepare. Meaning you can spend more time out in the sun taking advantage of the lovely weather while it lasts. Because let's face it, UK isn't [...]

Raspberry Protein Chia Pudding

This recipe is in celebration of Barbie Day and the release of the new Barbie movie! This raspberry protein chia pudding is what I imagine barbie would eat for breakfast in real life - pink, tasty and nutritious!  I was obsessed with barbies when I was young, but we couldn't afford toys growing up in Iraq.

Her dad was doing well financially, so he found ways to find luxuries like a barbie house, even in post gulf war Iraq when most [...]

Protein Peanut Butter (3-Ingredients)

You only need 3 ingredients to make this super speedy protein peanut butter recipe. All you need to do is blend everything together and enjoy! Spread on a slice of bread for a high protein breakfast or a post workout snack.  I always start my day with a high protein breakfast containing at least 20g of protein.

I also find when I eat a higher protein breakfast I don't get cravings later on in the day. Something that I've noticed over the years is that having a carby breakfast with little protein and fat is a big [...]
