Chocolate Chia Energy Bites
Before a run, it's important to fuel enough and with the proper nutrients but also not to eat alot. If you are someone who likes to eat something wholesome and light, these treats are perfect. The chia seeds and protein powder give you a protein punch and the brown rice syrup is a low glycemic sweetener so it gives you sustained energy.
Some other ideas for a pre-workout meal:
Chia seed pudding
A slice of bread with peanut butter and banana
1 cup of quick cook oats
1 scoop of chocolate protein powder
1 tsp of maca powder
1/2 cup of brown rice syrup
Mix all the ingredients except the chia seeds in a medium bowl by hand. Mix until the mixture is sticky and moist and ingredients are blended well. Pour some chia seeds into another small bowl. Take a little bit of the mixture, roll into a ball and roll in the chia seeds, coating the ball with entirely. Roll into bites until the entire mixture is used and serve immediately or freeze. These make great pre or post workout treats!
