Today is an exciting day on the blog because today I get to tell you about a brand new partnership I have been working on for quite a few months…….drumroll…… I am thrilled to share with you that I have come on board with the team at Bounce Australia as a brand ambassador.
Bounce is an Australian company, based in the Central Coast of NSW and started by husband and wife team, Andy and Paula who had the goal of making nutritious, natural snacks for active people. Fast forward 12 years and we have the modern day BOUNCE Ball – more than 12 different flavours, along with BOUNCE Bites, BOUNCE Australia continues to go from strength to strength as more and more Aussies look for healthy and tasty snack food options.
I have been a massive fan of BOUNCE Balls and have recommended them to my clients for a number of years simply because it is one of the few nutritious snacks that contains a good amount of protein as well as a controlled portion of good quality carbs. Traditionally snack foods have either been all carbs as is the case with the majority of muesli bars and energy products, or all protein as is the case with low carb bites and bars. The issue with that for me nutritionally is that products that have a high proportion of carbs with relatively low protein levels are often not filling. Then in the case of high protein snacks, while the perception may be that they are better alternative for weight control, not consuming any carbohydrate when you are genuinely hungry can leave you vulnerable to cravings and binges.
The average BOUNCE Ball contains 8-10g of protein, 5-7g of fibre and no refined sugar. There are wheat and gluten free options as well as Bounce Bites for quick and easy snacks on the go. I often suggest BOUNCE Balls as a late afternoon snack for my clients who are struggling to keep control of their appetite and cravings come late afternoon. A hearty BOUNCE Ball is not only tasty, but the mix of carbs and proteins in a filling snack helps to keep my clients full and satisfied until dinnertime.
I am looking forward to sharing the world of BOUNCE with you!
