My balls have soul, do yours?

In February 2017, Nadra Shah set up Kitchen & Soul, a nutritious endeavour with a wholesome ethos.

Super snacks to calm that post gym hanger

If you're anything like me, you'll understand how necessary post gym snacking is. I'm not talking about sitting down and cracking open that packet of digestives or chocolate bar on the Luas home, but rather a small protein ball or fruity bite to curb the hunger and prevent the dreaded fridge raiding.
