Serves: 9
Prep time: 5 minutes
Freeze time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Coconut oil
4 cups brown rice crisps (or classic Rice Krispies)
½ cup all-natural peanut butter (or other nut butter), partially melted
½ cup brown rice syrup
3 scoops of USN BlueLab™ 100% Whey Protein Vanilla flavour
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preparation
Grease a 9-inch by 9-inch pan with coconut oil or line it with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix together melted peanut butter, brown rice syrup, protein powder and vanilla until it forms a dough consistency.
Add brown rice crisps to the peanut butter mixture. Use your hands to gently fold the rice crisps into the mixture. Then, pour mixture into the pan.
Using a spatula, spread mixture out evenly and press into pan so the bars are compact.
Place into freezer for at least 30 minutes
Before serving or storing, use a sharp knife to cut your treats into squares.

Pro Tip
Do not substitute honey or agave for brown rice syrup, since this sticky ingredient is essential to the recipe’s texture. Shop USN BlueLab™ 100% Whey Protein: http://ow.ly/NilV30hPnW5

Food prep Sundays….

Food prep Sundays....

Food prep done for the week!! Ostrich mince/Ostrich Steak/Chicken/Veg/Brown Rice and Sweet Potato! Yum..

Do you plan and prep your food in advance or how do you go about it?

I like to plan my meals for the week, doing it this way I’m always sure there is something in the fridge to grab in the mornings for my lunch meals…If I fail to plan I end up eating what I can get and that is a NO NO! I do cook fresh in the evenings and breakfast is my oats/cereals that takes 3-5 min to prepare.

Working in the hospitality industry makes it very hard at times for there is ALWAYS breakfast/lunch buffets for groups or clients! The food is absolutely amazing but honestly – when prepared in the kitchen they don’t think about the “healthiest” options like steaming etc its all about the taste!

So its better to prepare and bring my lunch to work, then I know what cooking process was used and sure to avoid any unwanted fats/oils/sugar etc! The taste stays amazing even though its prepared and freezed- make sure that the food you prepare is food that you like – Don’t let food become your enemy make it tasteful and interesting. That way you are assured it becomes a lifestyle and NOT a diet!

Jump start your day

This is a wonderful circuit for those that can’t attend the gym or for those of you going on holiday; you won’t regret buying 2 Dumbbells and doing this circuit.

Stay active during the holidays. You have worked too hard not to do anything even if you go for a walk or an early morning jog next to the coast!

 

Jump start your day

All can be performed in the comfort of your home. You only need dumbbells.
