How would it feel to reach for food that actually makes you feel good? No worry, no regret, no second guessing sounds pretty freakin awesome right!?
Yet I don’t know about you but I was afraid to step out of my comfort zone. Afraid to try new foods. Afraid to keep food in my home that I actually enjoyed. So I would eat the same bland “healthy” foods over and over again only to binge at night.
I wondered why I kept doing this and continued to focus only on the food. Trying to eat healthier and work out more but guess what that didn’t work. I only wanted the food that I didn’t allow myself even more.
What if we could take little steps towards being kinder to ourselves? And allowed ourselves food that we enjoy. That’s where these super simple no bake energy bites come in.
WHY ENERGY BITES
When there is a lot going on, the last thing you want to do is spend time in the kitchen. Ya feel me? Maybe you’ve got kids to watch, house to be cleaned, work to be done and it can be hard to have snack options that are easy and wholesome.
That’s why these energy bites are awesome to make. No need to turn on an oven or stove. No need to buy a ton of ingredients. No need to feel overwhelmed.
Just grab your ingredients, place them in a blender or food processor, and then roll into balls.
If you want to get fancy, you can roll the energy bites in shredded coconut. It isn’t necessary yet I highly recommend it.
Then when your hunger strikes just head to the fridge and grab 1 or 2 of these energy bites. You can feel proud, empowered, really freakin good inside for making something that you enjoy. Cheers to feeling good!
