So today (Sunday 25th February 2018) is one week until I run the Bath Half Marathon! Eeep! I am a mixture of all things excited, nervous, emotional and full of a lot of pride.
The week before a big race I like my diet to be completely committed to the cause. I am a clean eater most of the time (80/20 lifestyle :-)) and when I am training I like to fuel my body right and to feel good (albeit those that follow my Instagram will know I like the occasionally cinnamon bun and a dirty burger!) we also need to have fun right!? But the week before the race I like to feel on top of my game. Different foods work for different people and I have found that protein and a semi-gluten free diet make me feel the most energised and bouncy! I am always constantly trying new foods and recipes to see what works for me.
So talking of bouncy, I have made these homemade energy balls. I wanted something which would give me a sweet fix but also something that would give me a boost. These little balls of fun are super tasty, quick to whip up and handy to keep in your bag. If you’d like to give them a whirl, here are the deets:
4 Egg Whites
25g Wheatgrass Powder
50g Ground Almonds
50g Peanut Butter (without palm oil)
50g Agave Nectar
25g Flaked Almonds
Howdya Make Em
Blitz the raisins and the egg whites together using a hand blender. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix together to form a dough. Roll into balls (the mixture should make about 14).
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to firm up those balls. Then Enjoy!
Love Debs Xo
