Okay, raise your hand if you want to know what the hell you’re putting in your body when eating a protein/granola bar?!  I DO.  And quite frankly sick of seeing BS on the ingredients.  So I’ve taken it upon myself to create my OWN protein bites, and guess what?  They’re even better than those processed bars (not saying I don’t eat them, from time to time)  but it’s nice to know what we’re putting in our bodies?  Not to mention, this is MUCH more affordable than those costly bars… some are $3 a bar.  That shit adds up REAL quick.  And I like to save that for my kombacha drinks.. haha.  And you guys, you put everything in a bowl, mix it up, roll into balls and done.  The most simple, yet healthy protein treats you’ll ever have.  k here are the deets.

HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED

Makes 15-16 balls

DIRECTIONS

Step 1: Mix all ingredients into a medium size bowl besides almond milk.

Step 2: Add in 1/3 Cup Almond milk first.  If the mixture is to dry, add in a little more.  It should be slightly moist in order for it to form into balls, but not to wet.

Step 3: Form into about 1 inch sized balls.  The size depends on you, but I like mine enough to take 2 bites from.  

SO there you have it!  They’re the easiest to make.  Store them in the fridge until you’re ready to eat.  Oaks loves them too! It’s literally a win win for everyone.  I’m always l looking for easy, healthy and yummy treats to grab on the go.  

Let me know if you guys try them and love them!  Tag me in your post, or story!  

Have a great day!

MY 3 GO TO SNACKS

Processed with VSCO with q5 preset

OKAY.  So heres the thing. I love my snacks, I gotta have my snacks.  I can’t go in between meals and not have something else to look forward to eat, or munch on.   The thing with me is I like EASY & EFFICIENT.  You may not know this, but I feel super lazy when it comes to making things for myself.  I mean, lets get real… who has the time to be making food all day? NOT ME.  The reason I say this is because you can ALSO eat super healthy without having to be preparing 24/7.  I like to make mine ahead of time, plus have a protein bar every now and then.  Here are my 3 GO TO’s that I reach for.

Processed with VSCO with q5 preset

1. RXBARS.  NO BS BARS- I love these bars because I know whats in them & know that I’m not getting anything added, like extra sugars.  You always want to read labels and make sure that the ingredients are readable.  If it starts to get to long, and you don’t know whats what.  My guess is, it’s probably not the most nutritious choice in the world.  Another thing you could do is look up the ingredient, if you really want to get into it.  But with that said, It’s not like I deprive myself from things either.  I’ll have another protein bar, like ONE bars, or FIT JOY bars.  They aren’t that bad every once in a while.  But just keep in mind of the extra sugars. 

DARK CHOCOLATE CHUNKS– To add to my number one, I also like to eat just plain dark chocolate chunks.  SO good, and it helps me feel satisfied when I’m wanting something sweet.  I’ll have a tbsp usually.   It has 7 fats, 4 protein, and 14 carbs.

2. EGG WHITE CAKES– I did a post on these a while back, but I want to bring it to your attention again.  If you have a hard time hitting protein, you gotta make these!  I pre-make them every week, and put them in the fridge and just heat it up when I’m ready to eat one.  I’ll pair it with avocado and some cholula sauce!  Go check it out.

3. PROTEIN TRUFFLES– I also did a post on these as well, but they need your attention again, because they’re bomb! If you missed the post, there you go.  These are also high in protein.  Think a homemade protein bar, but 10x better and more fresh.  They’re so delicious.  I pre-make these as well for a whole week, and they’re easy to grab and go.  If you just set aside an hour to prep your food for the week, you are set for the entire week.  All you have to do is grab and go!  So worth it. SO go check out those recipes!

Hope you enjoy!  Let me know how you like them.  Have a great weekend.

xox,
