During winter, it’s easy to snack on unhealthy, nutrient-poor foods like chocolate and chippies, especially when you’re feeling sluggish and low on energy. All you want to do is sit on the couch!
But try and set aside 10 minutes because that’s all you need to make these super nutritious and tasty protein balls. Once you make them the first time, you’ll be addicted because they’re so easy and so good.
Why maca? This high protein superfood of the Incas is sometimes described as the “Peruvian ginseng.” It’s claimed benefits include helping mood swings and hormone imbalances, libido, the immune system, energy levels and skin conditions. All great benefits for the middle of winter blues!
