Friday Foodspiration: Butternutty Bread

A little bit sweet and a whole lot healthy!

When working with health coaching clients, most often I find they are not eating enough protein consistently throughout the day. This limits their ability to make progress with workouts, maintain hormone balance, and burn body fat. Protein isn’t just for body builders!

This quick bread is loaded with protein, omega 3 healthy fats, and even a vegetable. It will help repair muscle, build stronger bones, boost the immune system, and balance blood sugar. What more could you want from a snack?

What it doesn’t have . . . gluten, grains, dairy, or oils. This is a great post workout refuel or even afterschool snack for the kids.
