Pilates and Back Pain
Pilates exercises are commonplace at
physical therapy centers, chiropractors are
recommending Pilates, and "My back used to hurt all
the time and now I don't feel it anymore" is a
phrase we hear a lot from people who do Pilates
consistently. So what is it about Pilates that works
so well for back pain relief?

the underlying structural imbalances in the body

Peanut Butter Protein
This peanut butter protein balls recipe is so
easy to make and it's the ideal snack when your
energy is flagging and you need a quick nosh to
get up to speed.
The exact ratio of ingredients and resulting
taste will depend a little on the types of
protein powder and peanut butter you use. This
basic recipe was made with a French Vanilla
flavor protein powder but chocolate and other
flavors work fine as well. The agave syrup goes
a long way in giving it some sweetness.
1 cup natural
4 scoops (or 1
1/3 cups) any flavor whey protein powder
1/2 cup agave
syrup or to taste
or almond flour/almond meal, optional
In a medium
bowl, mix together all of the ingredients until
thoroughly combined. A stand mixer works great
for this, but a food processor or a wooden spoon
works fine as well. You might need to add more
protein powder if the mixture is too wet or more
agave syrup if it's too dry.
2. Roll the
mixture into 1-inch balls.
3. If you like,
roll in crushed nuts or almond flour/almond
meal (the calorie count given does not include
the nuts or almond flour).
