These protein balls are cute, tasty & perfect for on the go!

by Sophie Eadon - July 27, 2017

The protein balls in your July Bubble Box are portable and tasty, but they’re also a go-to snack for busy beachgoers. Vegetarian and all natural, these little bites are hand-rolled by The Protein Ball Co.’s team in West Sussex, led by husband and wife team Hayley and Matt Hunt.

A whopping 22% protein, one protein ball can make all the difference between burnout and beach bunny. Here are four moments that one of The Protein Ball Co’s creations will hit the spot this summer.

1. After a long swim

When we work out, our bodies break down the muscles we’re using. That’s why recovery is so important – it gives our muscles a chance to repair and rebuild themselves stronger. While they may be much more enjoyable than the standard jaunt down the gym, swimming in the sea and then relaxing back on the beach (perhaps with a glass of fizz) are important parts of this cycle. Protein helps our bodies rebuild muscle faster, so having a quick nibble on a protein ball can give your recovery a helpful little boost.

2. Before you hit the beach

Chock full of natural sugars, eat a protein ball about 30 minutes before you hit the beach for a little energy boost. And you won’t need to worry about feeling sluggish or bloated once you’re sitting in the sunshine. Whey protein, the vegetarian protein in your Coconut and Macadamia Protein Balls, is easier to digest than many other forms. That means your body won’t be battling with your pre-beach snack, and you can reserve energy for building sandcastles and popping bottles.

3. In the middle of a long day

With six protein balls packaged neatly in an ultra-portable packet, The Protein Ball Co.’s creations are easy to tote around with you. They fit in beach bags, handbags, even your back pocket – so if you start getting peckish, wherever you may be, pull them out and pop one in your mouth. Snack time, sorted. This is especially helpful for long beach days. When you start flagging, go for an energy boost frm this packet.

4. While you’re getting ready to go

If you wake up long before your stomach does, it’s worth having a protein ball or two while you’re packing to go, be it for a day at the beach or a day in the office. The high protein content will give you slow-burning energy for the rest of the day and keep you fuller for longer, and the whey protein won’t make you queasy for eating earlier than your body clock might like.
