Carrying around extra weight can be hard. Not only does it make your back hurt, but the more you have, the harder it is to lose. When I appeared on San Antonio’s SA Live, I told viewers looking to slim down to consider some healthy swaps. I suggested getting rid of their current cheat foods and replacing them with these peanut butter balls. This slimming snack is packed with healthy fats, protein and fiber, to boost your metabolism and keep you feeling fuller longer. It contains just a few simple ingredients, such as peanut butter, Malaysian sustainable palm oil and protein powder, but this decadent dish does good. Not only may it help you achieve your weight-loss goals, it’s also good for Mother Earth.
The secret to losing weight is your metabolism. The faster it goes, the faster you lose. And if you’re not losing, your metabolism is sleeping. I listed some ways to boost your metabolism on my website. One of my suggestions is to get your cravings and appetite under control. That’s just what this snack, pictured on the front page of my book, is all about.
Mix together in a large bowl. Powder your hands with flour, and then form mixture into one-inch balls. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
I consider this slimming snack sustainable in two ways: First, it helps sustain your appetite. This little metabolic bomb fills you up, cranks up your metabolism and satisfies your cravings. Otherwise, you may eat other not-so-healthy things. Second, it’s good for the environment. The Malaysian palm oil industry is a model for sustainable agriculture. The county and the palm oil industry have done an amazing job supporting its people and its environment. They even have established progressive wildlife initiatives to protect the county’s abundant wildlife.
