I try really hard to live a healthy lifestyle but also balance the fact that I love to eat and I am super busy. While I may indulge in a donut at my favourite coffee shop or eat a bit too much popcorn during a Netflix marathon, I try to make sure the majority of what I consume each day is good for me.
Typically my day starts with a smoothie that is packed with fresh fruits and vegetables. Adding a scoop of a premium protein source, such as fermented Greek yogurt proteins+ , to my morning smoothies helps me to get the protein I need to start the day.
Protein can also be added to your food and snacks, and since I love to bake I find myself adding it to my favourite recipes.
These superfood protein energy bites use the new fermented Greek yogurt proteins+ from Genuine Health. It is a premium protein source, provides nutrients vital to good health and has more than six times the calcium of whey protein. Plus, it is super creamy and combines well with other ingredients making it perfect for cooking and baking.
Food is fuel. Eat to live!
This is the first (and only) fermented protein made from Greek yogurt. Fermented Greek yogurt proteins+ is formulated to maximize absorption, strengthen your gut to improve digestive health, and provide 25 grams of fully-fermented protein from a clean, grass-fed California dairy.
It is a good feeling to know that it is hormone and antibiotic-free, gluten-free, soy-free and non-GMO. 🙂
Fermented Greek yogurt proteins+ is available in vanilla and plain/unsweetened (which I used in this recipe) flavours at your local health food, grocery and drug retailers. They also have delicious, portable bars! Visit the Genuine Health website to find a store near you.
