TGIF! Yes!!!

Past weeks have been sooo hectic and full of things to do. Work, business trips, meetings, fairs, events. I need a break! I was so busy I hardly had time to make myself anything more than a salad. Thank god I had made this energy balls the week before and they literally saved me from starvation!

Anytime I felt hungry, I popped one in my mouth and recharged!

They are super easy, require no cooking and are packed with all the good nutrients you need!
