And if you know me (or are getting to know me), you'll see that I always encourage everyone to get their protein from real, whole foods.
I don't like to depend on protein powders, bars, or supplements-especially for kids.
The way I see it, once we can fuel our bodies properly, using real foods, then you have a good foundation for when you get the an elite level...that's when you can consider using supplements and increase your protein levels through other methods (after talking with a professional of course).
So how can we get protein into our athletes, when sometimes-they just don't want to eat any more chicken or peanut butter?
You read that right.
Cookie. Dough. Dip.
No worries about raw eggs or too much sugar...this cookie dough dip is meant to FUEL you.
WAIT!!! I promise you, it's delicious. Stay with me.
Once you've made this...you won't believe how delicious it is, and how much you're going to want to eat it with a spoon. Seriously.
I posted this on my Instagram stories and I couldn't believe the reaction! SO MANY PEOPLE wanted the recipe, that I had to make this a blog post.
Make it, eat it, and feel the power of protein! This is best eaten as a snack AFTER activity and with fruit to dip.
