Energy snacks for throughout your day

The first example is taken from onewaytohealth’s blog, I was keen to try this recipe out from her natural take on the Nakd bars, whether you want to use it as a snack in the day or for hitting the gym to replenish your energy levels. I was impressed with the minimal ingredients in the recipe and that it’s simply so quick and easy to make! So thank youย http://onewaytohealth.wordpress.com/ here’s my go at making your treat!

Cashew nut and dates energy ballsย

Sorry about the background mess for these pics today! All you need to do next is roll the now combined – almost a paste texture with a little water – into balls as mentioned by One Way To Health or into strips, then store or munch away!

  2. Cheers again! ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh good haha, I’m excited to try and use more of those ideas, swapping it with less chocolatey snacks heading towards summer – with limited willpower at times :’) Yes most definitely, they do make for a great energy boost when needed! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks Monica x

  4. Haha good for you ๐Ÿ™‚ I should also start going to the gym, I have been paying for the membership since October and still haven’t been there once. I’m terrible! Haha But I proper feel the need of going now, plus there’s a crรจche where I can leave my 1-year old, so I get up to 2 hours of freedom. That alone should motivate me to go, not sure why I still haven’t done it though lol x

  5. Cheers๐Ÿ˜ŠI need to do a lot more fitness aswell :’) I only re-joined the gym about 2 months back after closing my previous membership last Nov :/ but I’ve joined somewhere a lot cheaper now ยฃ5 a month so I don’t feel terrible if my friend and I only end up going once a week as opposed to going twice a week together haha! I’m gonna add longer dog walks to some evenings and try to do some yoga weekly I need to push myself a lot more! You aren’t terrible haha I’m very similar, think I just need to motivate myself to actually go for a jog rather than think about it :’) That’s great if there’s a crรจche for your 1 year old, sounds really handy for you ๐Ÿ™‚ hahaha I’d probably have done the same if I was in your shoes don’t worry! Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚ x
