Double Chocolate Protein Balls

Monday I made it back to the gym! I am not lifting yet but just cardio. I believe that you need protein with either activity. I am also not a fan of drinking a protein supplement before/after, protein should come from food not a supplement. But…… there is always a but right. I do like Vega’s Protein & Greens and I have used it in a couple of recipes. This one is my Favorite thus far (I wrote fart…hahahaha. my brain needs a break). Give them a try!
