Confession. I’m so ready for a vacation. One where I can lay by a pool or beach all day, not worry about my to do list and be completely disconnected from everything in life.
To say things have been busy, is an understatement. Between friends visiting, graduation and unexpected opportunities popping up, I’m behind on everything and hanging on for dear life.
When life is stressful or busy, it’s easy to forget about fueling your body with good food. Stress depletes the body of vital nutrients and creates inflammation. Inflammation puts the immune system on alert.
With my Hashimoto’s, I’ve learned to be prepared to take care of my body even better during those times by having healthy snacks on hand in my freezer. A freezer also full of lean protein and veggies so I can make quick, healthy meals.
Chocolate Almond Bites
These little Chocolate Almond Bites are one of my favorite snacks to have on hand. Whether I’m running from the pool to teaching spin or needing an afternoon pick me up after shooting a morning full of healthy recipes, having healthy options like these on hand saves me from eating junk.
What You Need
- Gluten Free Rolled Oats
- Nut Butter
- Flax Meal
- Chia Seeds
- Chocolate Chips
I can’t take full credit for this No Bake Chocolate Almond Bites recipe. It’s one my Mom sent me years ago. I’ve made a few tweaks to the original recipe to make it lower in sugar, but it’s mostly the same.
The ingredients are the perfect balance of healthy fat, protein and carbohydrates with a blast of omega-3 thrown in there. You get everything you need in one bite! I also kept the recipe dairy free by using my favorite dairy free chips.
To make just stir, roll, refrigerate and eat. SO EASY!
