Sugar Free: Crunchy Cheese Balls. Без Цукру: Хрумкі Сирні Кульки.

sugar detox

My sugar detox continues. The first three days and the reason why I’ve started detox could be found in my blog.

I am trying to improvise some recipes, based on the foods I can eat during sugar detox. Since I’ve added cheese, starting day 4, I came up with a nice idea of cheese balls. They are very easy and quick to make. After being rolled in cacao, they look super cute and tempting 🙂 Though, you can also roll them in unsweetened shredded coconut, sesame seeds or other foods you like that fit into sugar detox.

Chocolate Muesli Bars. Шоколадні Батончики-Мюслі.

The days became longer, and we became more active. You are quite active? Right 😉

With spending more energy we need extra snack or two, and, hopefully, the healthy option, to keep our batteries recharged.

Unlike the bars from my Protein Bars collections, the bars, I offer you today, don’t have any whey protein powder in them. The Muesli Bars contain a variety of nuts and seeds that provide protein. If you watch your protein consumption carefully and need to rich a certain amount of protein per day, you might want to add the whey protein (or vegan option) to fulfill your needs. Simply add 60 to 90 grams of protein supplement to the recipe and reduce the oat amount from 240 grams to about 200 grams. Also, if using a flavored protein powder, make sure to reduce the amount of honey (or maple syrup) and be careful not to add too many dried fruits so your bars don’t become too sweet. Unless, you prefer a really sweet snack.

The artificial sweeteners, used in protein and other sport supplements, require a separate topic in my blog. I do have my own opinion about them. Being short,  I’ve cut down consuming foods that contain sucralose. As of today, my best choice would be an unflavored protein powder.

DIY:Tahini Paste.Зроби Сам: Тахіні Паста.

Tahini 3TSV

About couple days ago I wanted to make a hummus. I’ve had all the ingredients, except tahini. Without thinking too long, I went to the local fresh market and bought the sesame seeds. Yes, I’ve decided to make my own tahini.

The tahini recipe is really simple and doesn’t take that much time. Besides homemade hummus, you can use tahini in baking the cookies, cooking the noodles, preparing the sauces for meat and vegetables.

German Chocolate Protein Bars. Протеїнові Бари зі Смаком Шоколадного Торта.

German ChocolateProtein Bars

You’ve, probably, heard about the cake called German Chocolate Cake? Maybe, that is one of your favorite desserts. Well, today, I offer you the recipe for the protein bars that taste close to the German chocolate cake. Not as sweet, of course: there is no sugar. All the sweetness comes from the dates and the whey protein*, depending on which one you are using.

*Please be aware that the sweeteners that sport nutrition companies use in their protein powders nowadays are not completely researched, and may have the health side affects, if not instantly, then in years to come.

Choose your whey protein wisely!
