Word on the street is that people should have protein within the 30 minutes straight after a weights workout. It helps with muscle recovery and ensure you don’t end up injured do to tearing over-worked muscles that didn’t get the nutrients they need to recover!

So – the brownies. They are not super low-cal, so for weight loss just don’t eat the entire batch, in one sitting, by yourself ;) but they are low-carb, refined sugar free and pretty damn delicious. And they freeze super well.
