I used to do a much better job of preparing meals in advance and eating the leftovers for lunch. It wasn’t until the other day that I realized how lazy I’d gotten with my food prep. I came home and my roommate said, “So is tonight the night you just eat yogurt and a cereal bar?” Ouch.
So I went to the grocery store and bought some items for a snack that I really enjoy during the summer and that can help tide me over before and after a workout. I present: Peanut Butter Protein Balls!
Ok, so they don’t look super delicious, but trust me, they are. You can find the recipe HERE. I make them and store them in the fridge since the peanut butter can get soft if you leave them out. I use Pubix (store) brand Natural PB (KC’s recommendation!) and EAS chocolate Whey Protein.
Today I am thankful for easy, yummy snacks. This is a recipe for you if you love peanut butter and are a lazy ass like me.
What are you thankful for today?
*After massage and icing, the quad feels 100% better. I won’t run until Saturday still but things are looking good!
I must be a lazy ass too! Love the peanut butter protein balls lately. I probably eat at least one (or more) every day. Crazy addictive!
I must have issues because I was certain those were meatballs! LOL
Glad the leg is feeling better!
YUMMM! I love P.B. balls – and these look really good. Going to try them 🙂
Lazy in the kitchen – that's me too! Anything with chocolate and peanut butter cannot ever taste bad. Publix natural peanut butter can kick Smuckers natural peanut butters ass. And for a lot less thank you! Save me a ball or 2! So happy your quad is back in check.

You know – there are some folks that might work in the same zip code as you that would not mind trying your tasty treat.
Ha! I think eating random things for dinner is part of not having to cook for anyone else, I do it a lot! Ok don't get grossed out but last night I ate spaghetti noodles, cut up tofu dogs,w/a dollop of veganaise!!! Yes, it's ok to call me a weirdo!!
peanut butter and balls. how could this possibly go wrong?
Yummy!!! I am thankful I got to spend the day at the beach with my chickie!!! Finally it's summer!
My son's girlfriend makes something very similar. When she brings them over, they literally fly out of the refrigerator.
Those sound really good and like something I would eat way too much of way too fast!
Just found your blog…
Love being Lazy, but I love to cook..
Protein balls… hmmm I make protein bars, but I think I might have to try these…
