I’ve been lacking energy the past few weeks. I think it has been a combination of work stress, lack of sunlight during this cold, dark season, and not eating well. I’ve certainly indulged over the past month, which I can feel and see. I’m committed to getting back on track this month with healthier meals, smarter portions, and making working out a routine again.
It won’t be easy-this month brings a lot of change. Between renting out the house four different times through Airbnb and starting my new job with two week-long work trips, one international, I’ll be on the go a lot.
I found this recipe for no bake energy bites, and they are the perfect snack to bring on the road. What’s more, they are healthy and incredibly filling!

2/3 C coconut flakes
1/2 C peanut butter
1/2 C flax seed
