“Ferrero Rocher” Protein balls (Vegan and Gluten free)

I like to get my nutrients and minerals from natural sources as much as possible.  I do pop a daily multi-vitamin though I don’t believe that it will magically balance essentials nutrients out if I was to not be conscious of my food on a day-to-day basis.  Getting my daily required protein however has been a… Continue reading “Ferrero Rocher” Protein balls (Vegan and Gluten free)
