Morning lovely people! This will be my last post for a while, but don’t fret, I’ve hooked you up with some amazing guest posts coming from some of my favorite bloggers so stay tuned!
There’s been this Blog Everyday in May challenge going around lately, and I decided to join in on one day of the fun…it actually looks pretty neat, so maybe I’ll do it another time, since I clearly don’t like following rules of challenges.
What would you say if you had to sell yourself in 10 words or less? For someone who likes to blab and type a lot…this was actually harder than I thought.
Describe yourself in 10 words or less…
This makes me sound like a super awesome. I guess that’s the point of selling yourself though, yes;)
Apparently, when I’m stressed out I like to get creative with my food. Maybe because it distracts me from my mind and anxiety. Yes, that’s probably it. I’ve been experimenting more in the kitchen, which means more recipes for you!
I had some pumpkin leftover from yesterday’s Breakfast, and decided I better put it to use before it goes to waste. Enter pumpkin balls. Sounds super appetizing, right? Well, they were in fact.
Pumpkin Protein Energy Bites (makes about 8-10 balls)
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil*
- 1/4 cup almond butter (or nut butter of choice)
- 1/4 cup oat flour (grind oats into flour)
- 1/4 cup protein powder
- 1 tablespoon hemp seeds (ground)
- 1/3 cup pumpkin
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- pinch of sea salt
- dash of stevia
First grind the oats and hemp seeds together (if the oats aren’t already in flour form)
*Melt the coconut oil slightly by heating it lightly in the microwave.
Mix the above ingredients in a bowl (dry and then wet) until combined fairly well.
At this point, add desired sweetener and spices to this mixture.
Combine once again, until a doughy consistency is reached. At this point, you’ll want to get in with your hands to make the dough come together.
Form into balls, store in the fridge or freezer, and they’re perfect to grab on the go!
Holy moly these are good. Especially when placed in the freezer for a few hours so they’re the perfect texture.
I’ll also be living on these the next few days….
Smoothies galore. This particular smoothie contained frozen banana, spinach, avocado, chia seeds, sun warrior protein powder, and almond milk.
What ten words would you use to describe yourself?
What are your favorite soup, smoothie, or blended recipes? I’ll be in dire need of some goodies to keep my energy up the next couple of days!
Have you tried any of the energy bites or ball recipes? (using balls so much in a post is awkward) What’s your favorite combo?
Hope you all have a lovely week! I’ll try to update as soon as possible.
