PB Chocolate Chip Bites
As my blog post about post-workout snacks discusses, these can be very influential in helping you reach strength goals! For me, they're also a fun way to push yourself during your workout - I like to think in terms of "earning" your post-workout snack. Whatever works for ya, right?
Now that we know the optimal carb:protein ratio, I've experimented with creating energy bites that meet those requirements! This is my first attempt and man, they're delicious! There are 22 grams of carbs and 9 grams of protein per TWO bites. So yes, consume TWO of them post-workout for optimal benefits.
I am looking forward to creating more for you all!
