Protein balls are such a versatile snack. Regardless of striving to fight off cravings and hunger after a workout, satisfy a late-night sweet tooth, or increase more protein into your diet, these delicious, healthy treats truly pack a nutritious punch.
The key to exercise nutrition is simple: Consume carbohydrate based snacks before workout and a protein plus carbohydrate combination after workout. Carbohydrates provide energy to power you through your training sessions, while a protein/carbohydrate combination after training will help your body to repair, recover and refuel. Smoothie Factory Protein Balls are the most ideal pre and post training options as they provide both carbohydrates and protein.
You should be consuming your Smoothie Factory Protein Balls 60 minutes before workout. This will give your digestive system time to digest and provide your body with the energy to workout. Smoothie Factory Protein Balls contain the perfect amount of calories to fuel your body without burdening your digestive system.
Artificial chemicals, added substances and sweeteners can have negative effect to our wellbeing. Some artificial sweeteners can cause gastrointestinal and neurological issues. Artificial colours can affect mood and behaviour, and certain preservatives can cause antagonistic reactions including bronchial issues and asthma. As human we should be consuming natural foods as close to nature as possible.
This can be truly confusing as natural ingredients can have uncommon names, for instance tocopherol is another word for vitamin E frequently used an antioxidant. The easiest way to identify ingredients is to look for numbers. If a product contains long list of uncommon names and numbers then it is mostly likely not natural based. We suggest research on ingredients you are not familiar with, which is a way to educate ourselves as we need to understand what we are putting into our body.
Smoothie Factory Protein Balls are formulated as healthy snacks to be included between meals or pre/post workout, and should also be enjoyed as part of active lifestyle and balanced diet.
