Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls


About a year ago, I rekindled my love/hate relationship with the gym.  I supplemented that with regular jog/walks around the lake and the net result was this:  The dog lost 8 pounds.  I'm not joking.

Going to the gym in the morning always presents me with this dilemma; what to eat.  If I don't eat anything, I get light-headed.  If I eat the wrong thing, I feel like I'm going to throw up.  Finally, Travis the Trainer suggested these protein balls.  They not only taste good, but they seem to get me through his workouts!


These Peanut Butter Protein Balls have just a few simple ingredients and will easily last you a week in the fridge.  I found this dairy-free protein powder at Costco which is super chocolatey and very delicious.  Yep.  Just one more reason to love Costco.



Just combine all the ingredients in a bowl, or, better yet, use a food processor if you have one, which I don't.  Believe it or not. Don't forget the chocolate chips, because I wouldn't ask you to put anything in your mouth that wasn't delicious.



Three of these in the morning and I am out the door!



Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls

Ingredients:
2 cups rolled old-fashioned oats, raw
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey or agave
2 scoops chocolate protein powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Combine ingredients in a bowl or food processor.  Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.  Roll about 1 1/2 tablespoons into balls. and place on a cookie sheet.  Chill for another 30 minutes and then place in a ziploc bag.

If you read my email yesterday, you’ll know I’m now a firm believer in taking digestive enzymes to help boost protein adsorption and your overall digestive health.

The positive benefits go on and on. Especially when it comes to muscle building and recovering from training. It’s really a no-brainer.

And the specific enzymes I recommend are Wade Lightheart’s ==>‘Masszymes’ formula

That’s because they contain the highest protease [digests protein] counts on the market, and they’re specifically designed for athletes, and high performance individuals.

So let’s assume you now understand the benefits of taking digestive enzymes.

And let’s also assume you’ve ordered some Masszymes and want to make the most of them.

How should you take these enzymes to maximize your results?

Well, speaking with peak performance expert Wade Lightheart, who has “over 10 years experience” of taking digestive enzymes, the general rule is this:

TAKE BEFORE MEALS. AND TAKE BEFORE YOUR WORKOUTS.

And the more you take, the faster the results.

It’s reassuring to know that no one, in over 70 years of enzyme research, has experienced any prolonged negative side effects to a massive or minor intake of digestive enzymes.

Quite the contrary — many individuals have experienced significant improvements in health, vitality, and performance with even low dosages of enzymes.

Wade also recommends GRADUAL INCREMENTAL INCREASES are the best way to add enzymes to your diet.

He initially took between 40-50 enzymes per day of his high quality enzyme formulation — although after about 5,000 enzymes ingested in total, his need/desire for them dropped.

And HIS ENZYME INTAKE NOW is around 25-35 capsules per day.

So that translates to about 8 Masszymes capsules per meal minimum.

And you may want to boost this as high as 15 capsules (or more, depending on your age, the intensity of your training, current health condition etc…).

Another factor to keep in mind is what Wade calls “The Critical 30% Factor”.

You see, although it’s not clear exactly how many enzymes the body can handle, most individuals have only 30 percent of their enzyme potential by the time they are 40 years old.

And this study was done many years ago, as reported in Dr. Howell's Book "Enzyme Nutrition”.

Today, enzyme levels could in fact be a lot LOWER, maybe as low as 30 percent at 20 years old, since third generation enzyme deficiency is rampant, and a big reason why North America has 50 percent of the population overweight.

If that is the case, then we all need to be boosting our enzyme levels with a high quality digestive enzyme formula.

And to my knowledge, there’s nothing more powerful right now than Masszymes.

P.S. This is my final email about digestive enzymes, and tomorrow we’ll be shifting gears.

So if you’re interested in trying these enzymes for yourself, I highly recommend you visit the link below now:
