As far as human nutrition is concerned, we never stop learning. Especially because every human being also needs an individual diet. Why? Each of us cultivates a different lifestyle, has different genetic material and therefore an individual metabolism. However, at the end of the day we are not all so different, but we are similar in some ways. Today I, Alex, would like to tell you about my search for a feeling of satiety. It all started with the Sarah's Day Youtube Channel. There a girl talks about her experience with bad skin, binge eating and her sports routine. (here a thank you to dear Caro, who has made me addicted to this channel) Anyway, thanks to this channel I've screwed up my diet a bit, now I mostly do without starchy foods, eat a lot of protein, fat and vegetables. When I still had a regular everyday life and could implement everything, I could only report positively about it. Since I don't have a regular daily routine at the moment, but still don't want to do without a sufficient protein supply, I started looking for a protein powder. My prerequisites were: Vegan, because we completely do without cow's milk products - honestly I'd rather eat a piece of fish, meat or eggs - gluten-free, because then I can be sure that there is no wheat and there should be no dubious sugar additives. It was also important to me that the list of ingredients was not a technical jargon for me and that I understood what the powder was made of.
As luck would have it, 8venture wrote us and asked if we would like to try their protein powder. Said done! I prefer to drink it in the evening after sports (IF... because at the moment this is unfortunately less often the case) or when I have to catch my train again at 4am in the morning, because the train food is not necessarily to my liking, but breakfast is also the most important meal of the day.
The powder itself is really plain, i.e. relatively tasteless. That's why I always made a smoothie out of protein powder, ice cubes, mint, banana, berries and almond milk. Here you can vary according to your mood. Chocolate, dates, avocado I could imagine quite well. Now I was recently at grocery shop and wanted to buy a protein bar - friends, what I got to read there in lists of ingredients was really a tragedy. Unfortunately, I haven't found anything really good so far, so we simply created protein balls ourselves.
These balls go super easy, fast and they can easily be kept for 5 days in the fridge.
So if you need a quick breakfast or a kick starter before sports, you should definitely try them out.
By the way, the ULTRAFOOD from 8venture is not just a protein powder, but provides the body with important vitamins, minerals and trace elements. In the end, you can even cover your daily needs with the powder. But I think you have to be the type, because we love the activity of eating and cooking too much.
1 pkg. dates (approx. 200 g), at least 20 min. soaked in hot water (keep some of the soaking water)
½ pkg. raisins (50 g), soaked in hot water for at least 20 min.

4 tbsp cocoa (slightly more if needed)
4 tbsp ULTRAFOOD (protein powder) from 8venture
