Healthy ANZAC Biscuit Protein Ball Recipe

Healthy ANZAC Biscuit Protein Ball Recipe

Anzac day is a special time to remember those who lived in service for us so that we can have the life we have today in Australia.  For this we are eternally grateful.  It is tradition to enjoy Anzac biscuits on Anzac Day but this year we thought we would do our own spin on this recipe and create Be Fit Food Anzac Protein Balls. Here are a few tips to keep active this Anzac day weekend;

  1. Start each day with some movement.
    Getting up and exercising no matter what the intensity or duration is a sure way to get the metabolism firing and the endorphins flowing to set you up for success both physically and emotionally. Try some simple home exercises;
    • Start with a short 2-3 min cardio warm up – a few laps up and down your stairs at home (if you have any) or side stepping in a low squat position in your back yard or across the largest room/hallway in the house or starjumps or high knees on the spot is you are very limited with space
    • Follow this with 3 sets of 10-15 push-ups on your knees or with hands on the couch or even your kitchen bench to make it easier (even a wall), then add 10-15 tricep dips using a chair or edge of your bed and lastly 20 crunches/sit-ups
    • End your workout with 3 sets of 10-15 step ups onto a chair or your bed (be careful) followed by 10-15 lunges back and forward across your living room and don’t forget a quick stretch too.
  2. Choose to fast for 12-16 hours per day.
    Our bodies need a break from eating sometimes and rarely do we get the opportunity to let them reset and focus on digestion and assimilation of nutrients plus repairing the gut walls as eating is actually has an inflammatory affect on the body.  Start with an 12 hour fast each day ie only eat between 7am and 7pm then 1-2 days per week step up your fast to 16 hours and only eat between 12-8pm or 10-6pm. 
  3. Focus on some protein and healthy fats at every meal.
    Substitute high carb meals such as traditional breakfast cereals or sandwiches for meals with more protein and only wholegrain carbs such as Omelettes with tomato, feta and spinach or Tuna patties with 4 bean mix and rocket salad with a olive oil vinaigrette or even a hearty soup with all the leftover vegetables in your fridge plus so low salt stock and poached chicken.  These low carb options will keep you on track with your health and weight loss goals.
