It’s SO easy to derail your hard earned healthy habits over the holidays. Don’t do it!
Step one: Make sure you’re getting enough clean protein. This simple step will reduce hunger levels and cravings and increase energy. But there’s more to it than just how many grams you’re getting every day. Making sure you only eat clean protein is key to ensuring that you’re not doing damage to your body by way of antibiotics, pesticides, or hormones that can be found in non-organic sources. Read your labels and #getpickywithyourprotein even (especially!) during the holiday season.
Now, onto flavor and convenience: To get your protein in the tastiest way possible, check out the following recipes, featuring Orgain protein powder! These protein bites are delicious and healthy for all ages and are perfect for a mid-afternoon snack or a quick breakfast on your way out the door.

Orgain Chocolate Quinoa Protein Bites Recipe
Chocolate Quinoa Protein Bites are ideal for sneaking additional nutrients into you (or someone else’s) diet. Many people believe that quinoa is a grain, but it is actually a seed. Quinoa is a true superfood; it has more protein (8 grams per cup) than any other grain or seed! The trick to successful quinoa protein bites is making sure you wash your quinoa very well before cooking it. Washing removes the natural coating, called saponin, which can make your quinoa bitter. Keep these protein bites in the fridge for a healthy after-school snack that everyone will love.
