Honestly Healthy: Green Chia Fritters for conditioning

posted on Wednesday, 4th February 2015 | find under Nutrition
Have you tried Honestly Healthy’s Creamy Cashew Porridge designed to fuel the Fly section of #SBFlyFlexFlow? If your answer’s no, click here to catch up! If you’re already up to speed, it’s time to move onto these protein-packed Green Chia Fritters perfect for rebuilding the muscles you’ve challenged during the Flex component of your workout…. 

Eggs are a great source of protein and perfect for following a tough conditioning session like the Flex section of #SBFlyFlexFlow. Protein helps to rebuild the muscle tissue after a workout – and as muscle helps to burn more calories, this process can also aid weight loss. Eggs are slightly more acidic on the pH scale so to make this dish more alkaline I’ve added broccoli and herbs. 

Fritters make a really versatile meal and I’ll eat them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Add a healthy green salad or even incorporate a carbohydrate like a baked sweet potato or gluten free grain for extra energy. I serve this with a delicious sweet chili dressing that makes a nice addition to many dishes!   

I always go on about fueling your body correctly. I think of the body like a Ferrari – you wouldn’t put dirty diesel in the engine as it would just break down. That’s why we need hearty energy-boosting ingredients to fuel our workouts.  It is always best to choose homemade meals over foods made in a factory or comprising ingredients you’ve never heard of and struggle to pronounce.
