Once upon a time your MizFit was a new weight trainer.
She joined a women-only fitness facility (that’s a post for another day. they give us all the crappy machines, paint them PINK and officially deem them (FQ) womanized (un-F.Q.)) & started lifting with a passion.
She loved it.
The process of it.
The way she FELT stronger.
How she looked? Well, that was another story.
MizFit didnt look one bit different than she did prior to her newfound fitness endeavor.
Why–you ask? Because she wasnt consuming enough protein to BUILD the muscles she was hoisting the weights to create (and, if you look here, the muscles which would also JUMP START her metabolism).
Now, MizFit was just crazy enough that she—bitten by the ironbug—immediately turned to grilled chicken breasts and canned tuna.
Perhaps you’re just crazy enough to try this MizFit-twist on an old American fave.
Sure it’s a dessert-y treat but with all the good fats from the peanut butter AND the new found extra protein (and eliminated powdered sugar) you can still feel pretty dang virtuous about eating them!
a bit MizFit-y as it were? TOSS IN SOME FLAX SEEDS. I dare you.
1 1/2 sticks butter softened
1 cup chocolate protein powder *
1 tablespoon vanilla
12 oz peanut butter (or if you’re allergic another nut butter should work)
12 oz chocolate chips
mix together ingredients (preferrably with hands whilst phone rings off hook & Toddler Tornado winds herself around legs).
roll into balls and refrigerate.
(I like to use this method for melting the chocolate chips both because it’s less messy and you have more control over how much you put on each buckeye.)
bring a saucepan of water to almostboiling.
shove a bunch of the chocolate chips into a zip-lock baggie.
dunk into the almostboiling until the chocolate is prettymuch melted.
Snip off corner and drizzle on top of chilled buckeyes.
Repeat until all buckeyes are covered or—as the Renaissance Man likes to call it— hatted.
*since we arent going low-carb here it doesnt matter AT ALL what kind of protein powder you use. name brand. store brand. ON SALE. Anything.
