Healthy cupcakes, who’d of thought it was possible? Well, it can be done! Even personal trainers love a sweet treat, so I thought why not indulge with something a little more nutritious than your average cupcake. According to the calorie king website, a cupcake with icing and sprinkles in between 459 – 497 calories! That’s 23 to 25 percent of the calories consumed based on a daily intake of 2000 calorie diet.
With many of us still working from home, it can be very easy to consume extra calories throughout the day. When your sweet tooth craving hits, having a healthier snack to reach for will fuel your body. This will stop your sugar levels from spiking and as a result, they will not leave you feeling hungry. These banana chocolate chip cookies are the perfect sweet treat and are certainly a great hit with the kids. A reminder – these cookies do contain sugar, in other words, don’t consume the lot!
Are you a cereal lover? By now I’m sure you are aware of how much sugar is in the supermarket cereals. This is why I have added another edition of a healthy granola recipe to our blog. Check out our other Healthy Granola Recipe HERE. This recipe is inspired by an artisan cafe in Paris Zia! It is crunchy, nutty and delicious! It is simply to make and can be stored in an air-tight container for up to a month.
Pancakes are one of our favourite breakfasts at The Trainers HQ. However, when looking to increase protein intake, recipes are often filled with protein powders which contain many ingredients I cannot even pronounce! For that reason, this is why we have created our 100% natural protein pancakes recipe, which contains whole ingredients which are naturally high in protein. They’re also great for little ones without the added sugar of normal pancakes.
As the cold days of winter continue, our cravings often turn to comfort foods. Stews are thick and hearty and are the ultimate warming meal. Are you doing Veganuary? This Spicy Bean and Vegetable Stew recipe is full of flavour and will please vegans, veggies and non-veggies alike.
