I was trying to think of something new for an afternoon snack. Starting Monday I am doing my work outs in the morning (committing for 21 days to AM workouts) so I need a smaller afternoon snack. In previous weeks, I was so hungry around 4 or 5 pm that I needed a decent sized snack just to fuel my workouts, but now with the workouts happening first thing in the morning, I won’t need as many calories at that time… hence shakeology energy balls. Not only are these delicious but they are clean and packed with nutrient dense food to give me energy.
1 cup of oats
1/2 cup almond butter (or similar)
1/3 cup honey
1 cup shredded coconut flakes
1/2 cup of flax seeds
1 packet of chocolate Shakeology
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix all ingredients together and roll into balls. Refrigerate and enjoy 1 – 2 at a time (depending on the size of the ball and of course, how hungry you are).
Note: If you do not have Shakeology and want to try it for a month, you can for an entire month with a 100% money back guarantee! visit http://www.shakeology.com/cair4health (comment below if you want more information!)
