Things I Love: When I still make the perfect healthy lunch on days when I am ridiculously busy.
Things I Hate: Not having time to include snacks that are on the same level.
Solution: Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Bites
These bite are the solution to my busy day problems. I find that whenever things get a little too hectic, my fridge tends to look a little sparse, which sometimes leads to downgraded snacks. With these, I make 1 batch (30 bites) and freeze them all, pulling them out as I need them. With oats, hemp hearts, chia seeds, peanut butter and dark chocolate, these bites pack in lots of protein, healthy fats and fibre to keep you going whether you are running to the gym, running errands or just running show. These are quite energy dense, so stick to 1-2 bites per snack.
