Cinnamon protein balls

This protein-rich snack could help prevent people with the FTO "obesity gene variant" from overeating. The regular consumption of small, high-protein meals helps stabilize blood sugar levels and maintain satiety at mealtimes. For those looking for a post-workout snack, this is also a great option! Light and portable, this snack helps with muscle repair and development, slows down the entry of sugar into the bloodstream, preventing blood glucose spikes and crashes.
