Add some Bounce to your bum-bag!
More food for thought in regards to fuelling your running. I have recently discovered Bounce Energy Balls, another healthy way to get the carbohydrate and protein for energy and repair that fell running demands. A good source of unsaturated fat they also contain a range of vitamins and minerals.
The balls come in an interesting range of protein packed flavours each in an individual wrapper. At 42g each they provide two or three decent sized mouthfuls of tasty snack, ideal for halfway round your long run or for instant refuelling as soon as you finish.
I use Spirulina powder in my diet which I mix with other foods to mask its rather unpalatable smell and powdery taste, so I was particularly interested in the Spirulina & Ginseng balls hoping that they would be more tasty than they sounded! I wasn’t disappointed as although they look unusual they taste good.
Bounce Balls are also gluten free, good news for runners with wheat intolerance. Typical nutrition information for a single 42g ball (Cashew and Pecan) is:
Energy – 180 kcal
Protein – 4g
Carbohydrate – 22g (9g sugars)
Fat – 9g (1g saturated)
Sodium – 0.095g
