Recipe: Energy Balls

Okay, this has to be one of my most favourite recipes. Probably because it is super easy, we always have all the ingredients and there is no baking or any fuss involved. Just simply mix and roll into a ball. Oh and this is toddler approved! Beats the chocolate timbits any day!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup (dry) oatmeal (I used old-fashioned oats)
  • 2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes.
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter.
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seed.
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (or vegan chocolate chips)
  • 1/3 cup honey or agave nectar.
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Just mix the ingredients together in a bowl, toss in the fridge for about half an hour and then take it out and roll into little balls. BAM!! That is all folks!

Top 3 tips to stay on track to your goals for 2017

Here they are, my top 3 tips to staying on track to your goals for 2017

  1. CLEAN OUT THOSE CUPBOARDS!! Go now! Right now! Get rid of all that crap that is taunting you in your cupboards. Anything that you know you will want to eat in a weak moment. You don’t need that stuff anyways.
  2. MEAL PREP!! Now, this is complicated to some people.  But it doesn’t have to be. Use your crockpot, it’ll take away so much work. Another easy trick is to cook one or two extra portions every time you make a meal then you can freeze it for another day.
  3. DRINK YOUR WATER!! Try drinking it out of a mug. I don’t know why it works but it’s more satisfying to drink out of a mug. Go try it!!
