Since starting my latest training program, I've needed to really amp up the protein. This can be difficult, even when my main 3 meals are pretty protein heavy. I'm trying to hit macros of 40/30/30, and so far the easiest way I've found to do this is to have a protein shake in the middle of the morning after my workout and a protein based snack mid afternoon to keep me going between lunch and dinner.
While on my mission to find some ideal mid afternoon snacks (nuts, seeds, natural yogurt are frequently scoffed) I was contacted by the guys behind BoostBall to try the range. I absolutely love the growing trend of natural protein based products that taste and look like confectionery and BoostBall falls perfectly into this category...
Typically in each pack there's around 11g of protein, 15g of carbs and 6g of fat. You won't find artificial sweeteners, refined sugars or a list of words you can't pronounce in the ingredients list. In fact, each pack, containing three balls, contains just 7 natural and cold-pressed ingredients.
They're made primarily out of whey isolate, nuts and dates and remind me of them amazing protein balls you always see on Pinterest - you know, the ones you pinned to your fitness board, that you intended to make about 6 Sunday's ago.
BoostBall comes in 4 different flavours: Raw Chocolate Brownie, Chocolate Orange Mud Cake (my personal favourite), Coconut Fudge Cake, and Peanut Butter Cookie Dough. All of the flavours taste great and they have a rich cookie-dough texture to them. Stash them in your desk drawer or gym bag and pretend you're eating high protein cake pops!
You can buy them in boxes of 12 packs (each pack containing three balls) for £17.99 (£1.49 a pack). At the moment you can buy them online at BoostBall shop. I would love to see them in the supermarkets, replacing the usual chocolate at the tills.
Disclosure: I was sent this product to review, but as always my opinions are honest and my own
