I am obsessed with making these little protein balls. They are so versatile and taste so good. These little snacks are high in protein and healthy fats are make the perfect morning or afternoon snack. They keep your blood sugar level and help combat that pesky sweet tooth!
Filled with some of my favorite ingredients, here are some of the benefits:
Turmeric: Turmeric has to be one of my most favorite super foods. It's super earthy, a little spicy and sweet and makes me feel so amazing. Turmeric has been using for thousands years and used in Ayurvedic medicine. I almost always recommend it to clients for it's anti inflammatory components and find it's great for the digestive system. If you have issues with bloating, indigestion, or sore joints you might want to try it! It has been proven to help with depression and anxiety as well. Turmeric is a root and you can find it in most stores fresh in the produce section (it's kind of like ginger!) or in powdered form in the herb section. Make sure you get organic and always have it with a healthy fat and pepper for maximum absorption.
Collagen: Collagen has become an increasingly popular supplement. I like to use it mainly for it's gut healing properties. Collagen helps to seal up the digestive lining and prevent leaky gut.

Coconut: I swear we could live off of coconuts. They are so versatile and have so many health benefits, one of the biggest one being it is antimicrobial. Coconut helps to get rid of those bad bacteria in the gut and has been shown to boost metabolism. Try blending it in coffee for a creamy, frothy latte!
