Running on greens

Running and simple, healthy, nutrient dense food are my two passions. Lately the three key things I'm doing with my nutrition are 1. having a meat and nut breakfast 2. limiting carbs to post-workout and 3. limiting my sugar intake (which is mainly fructose). It's evened out my blood sugar and energy levels, and has prevented carb and sugar cravings, which means I can happily eat veggies and protein for most of the day. My diet's not perfect, it's a constant work in progress. These are my recipes - I hope you'll find some you enjoy too. Lauren xx

Puffed museli squares

These museli squares are super moreish - so be warned because there’s some sweetness behind them.

Ingredients

Dry

  • 4 cups puffed grains (I’ve used equal parts buckwheat, amaranth, quinoa, millet)
  • 2/3 cup raisins, currants or sultanas (I’ve used currants)
  • 2/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup macadamias (or other nuts but I think macadamia goes best with the cranberries)
  • 1/2 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 2 scoops of protein powder (I did 1 WPI, 1 WPC)

Wet

  • 1 cup 100% nut butter (I used 2/3 almond butter, 1/3 peanut butter - I love the depth almond butter has)
  • 1 cup rice syrup (though it would probably also work with agave nectar)
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. 

In a saucepan on medium to low heat add the wet ingredients and stir until hot and combined (but not boiling), approximately 3 minutes. 

Pour the wet mixture over the dry and stir through. Allow to cool for a few minutes before touching as the wet mixture can burn. 

Once cooled down slightly add the mixture to a baking tray lined with baking paper. Press the mixture down and place in the fridge until completely cooled. Cut the mixture into squares, and store in the fridge. This will make approximately 26 squares. 

These also make cute little snack balls, but I prefer to eat them as squares.
