It's not a secret that when it comes to writing, the person who writes faces the challenge of hunger and staying in the zone is not guaranteed. In such a situation, you need to sit in your chair in front of your laptop for a pretty long time. Nevertheless, if you have some nutritious snacks at hand, they might be lifesavers.
In this article, you will get acquainted with a few healthy recipes that are helpful for staying nourished while you should write effectively.
Peanut butter protein balls
Since I write almost every day and during the whole day, there are moments when deadlines don’t allow me to have a decent meal. As a result, it was necessary for me to find a solution – protein! Actually, I wanted to create the recipe of the protein balls because they were sold not far from my house and were too expensive. If you consume several of them, your brain will get replenished.
Ingredients are as follows: 2 cups of rolled oats, 10 pitted dates, ½ cup of chocolate or vanilla protein powder, a pinch of salt, 1 cup of natural peanut butter, ½ cup of honey, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, ½ cup of chocolate chips.
Directions: Placing the oats in a blender and processing them are the primary steps. After that, add two dates separately and grind them each time. Then add protein powder with salt and process till all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
Now, add peanut butter, honey and vanilla extract. After processing, the mix should come together. Next, add chocolate chips and mix them.
Having formed the mixture into small round balls, put them on a baking sheet that must be covered with wax. Then, you will need a plastic wrap so that you can cover this baking sheet. In order to make the protein balls firm, place them in the freezer for some time.
Chia seed pudding
Seeds of chia are believed to be a helpful mean against overweight, but it has not been proved yet. However, one particular fact regarding this plant is indisputable – its seeds are full of nutrients. Sprinkling the uncooked seeds on the oatmeal and adding them to savory dishes are very good ideas. The taste of them is rather mild and a little bit nutty. Nevertheless, I prefer eating chia seeds in a pudding.
Directions: Youought to simply mix 3 tablespoons of chia seeds, 1 cup of almond or soymilk, ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract, honey to taste. The next step is dividing a basic pudding into a couple of little containers. After that, put them in the refrigerator for nearly 20 minutes. Remember about giving the mix a good stir so that the seeds are well settled and incorporated. Then leave the containers in the fridge till morning.
