Health and eating my veggies are important to me, but a girl’s gotta indulge if ya know what I mean. Live a little, people! I’m not one to pack healthy snacks with me or have my breakfast planned out for the week. I just go with the flow. BUT I also live in fear of being stuck somewhere with my stomach grumbling. Like most, when I get hungry I’m irritable and snappy and just plain nasty. Enter in these easy and delicious energy balls to the rescue!
As much as I love a good chocolatey ball, I am far more likely to go for a fruity one. And even though you’re probably sick of me telling you this for the 1000th time, lemon is my favorite flavor. The dates and nuts which make up the majority of the ingredients are what gives you the energy and the protein powder gives them more staying power. I also threw in some maca powder, which is a natural energy booster made from a Peruvian root plant. Here’s to these Lemon Vanilla Energy Balls helping to make up for any lack of stamina. Balls FTW! I kind of want that made into a t-shirt.
