Happy Saturday Loves!
I've got something a little different - and really special - to share with you today. And it comes with a veeeery generous coupon code just for you! You've got today and tomorrow to take advantage of this offer - so jump on it!
My friend and fellow Culinary Nutrition Expert Michelle Vodrazka has written an awesome new e-book called Smart Snacking for Sports. If you've been following along with me on Facebook or Instagram, you may have seen some posts, several months back, about the most delicious kale chips ever.
At the time, I couldn't share the recipe with you. But now you can find it - along with so many other lip-smackin' good-for-you snacks - in Michelle's jam-packed e-book.
Smart Snacking for Sports contains 40 nutritious and delicious snack recipes to fuel your active lifestyle. All recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free and have even been kid-tested and approved! Here's what else you'll find inside:
- Indicators whether a recipe is Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Egg-Free, Nut-Free, Vegan or Vegetarian
- Full page color photos of each recipe (by the incredibly talented Marianne Rothbauer)
- The most Frequently Asked Questions about what to eat before, during, and after your workouts, and
- Tips on how to fuel and hydrate for optimal performance
So whether you're already working out/keeping active on the regular or just starting to get back into the action, there's something there for everyone.
And with Michelle's super generous offer to extend a special coupon code to my readers through the end of the month, you can snag this baby for 60% off! This is a steal, guys! Just hop on over to her page, and use the code CNE2013 to save on the PDF version of the book.
And let me tell you, Michelle knows what she's talking about. Michelle is the owner and operator of both Inspired Bodies and Mommefit — a pre- and post-natal fitness company. She is a certified fitness, yoga, pilates, and spinning instructor, a certified sports nutritionist, and the proud mom of 4 children.
Ok, so right about now you might be wondering about those beauties in the picture above. Those are Michelle's Maca Balls. These raw organic balls will re-energize your body and replenish your mineral stores after a hard workout. But be sure to pop them in the fridge after you make them or you might end up eating them all!
GF, DF, EF, V, Veg
3/4 c raw cacao powder
1/4 c maca powder
1 c walnuts
1/2 c dates, soaked
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp organic agave nectar or maple syrup
1/4 c shredded coconut, for rolling
1/4 c toasted sesame seeds, for rolling
1/4 c cacao powder, for rolling
Mix the first 9 ingredients in a food processor until a lightly textured dough forms.
Shape into Ping-Pong sized balls then roll in either coconut, toasted sesame seeds or cacao powder (or make some of each).
Chill in fridge for at least 30 minutes or store in the freezer to stop yourself from eating them all!
Enjoy the weekend guys! Much love!
