Protein Power

One of my not so fancy tricks is a quick DIY protein blend that is great for sprinkling on all sorts of food groups. I use 3 tablespoons of chia seeds, 3 tablespoons of flax seeds, and 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds all ground up super fine in my coffee grinder. I keep this in a resealable container in my fridge (flax can go rancid in your pantry) and sprinkle it on yogurt, smoothies, eggs, into baking recipes, onto my cereal, onto my kids’ cereal, oatmeal, you name it! Each tablespoon serving has 3 grams of protein and I find it a great way to get a little extra throughout the day.

We buy these babies in bulk, worth it.

If you haven’t read the book Roar by Stacy Sims, I really recommend it. Totally fascinating, breaks down the science of nutrition and the female physique in very simple terms. She is big on protein and I’ve really taken that to heart. I find if I meet my protein requirement for the day, with unprocessed foods, the rest of my macro nutrients just fall into place. Check it out! And give this little protein powder blend a try, it’s reasonably tasteless (in a good way) and helps fill you up after a hard workout.
