A Good Snack
Having a good snack is extremely beneficial if you’re trying to keep a higher metabolism, as well as, build muscle; you gotta keep them muscles fed kiddos! Snacks really need to be treated like a “micro-meal” in which you’re still getting all the macro/micro nutrients, but in lower proportions than a standard meal. This snack you see in the picture is just one example of a “muscle building snack” and will get you around 20 grams of protein, 8 grams of good fat and about 4 grams of carbs.
Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: -------
Total Time: 5 min
5.3 ounces of Greek Yogurt
1 Tablespoon of Natural Peanut Butter
¼ Cup of Blackberries
A little bit of Cinnamon
Mix all the ingredients in the cup the yogurt came in; at first it may seem that the container isn’t big enough for all the ingredients, but just smash all the ingredients together and trust me it will all work out in the end.
We suggest not using any additional sugars in your snack, there is plenty in the peanut butter that should mask the bitterness of the yogurt (if you don’t like the bitterness of the yogurt). But, if you have to add some source of sugar, use a little bit of: honey, agave nectar or maple syrup and it should please your palette. Have a glass of skim milk with it for a little bit of extra protein. Enjoy!
