Chocolate Casein Balls

Chocolate casein balls and a glass of milk

When following a high protein and low glycemic diet, it can be very difficult to reach your protein goals for the day, especially when you are craving a sweet treat! Many have heard of whey protein, but many are missing out on the benefits of "casein" protein!

Whey protein is a fast absorbing protein. It is best used for post workout and a snack throughout the day. Casein lasts much longer in your system and is best consumed before bed so your body can absorb it overnight. Check out this evening sweet treat to help you reach your protein goals!
