Our wellness challenge continues with a treat! When tasks linger on, days wear on us, and life needs a pick-me-up, we like to rely on energy boosting bites-of-goodness packed with natural ingredients that invigorate our moral, metabolism and mental state. And who doesn’t love a snack that’s shaped like a doughnut hole and tastes a little like cake batter? Our favorite, no-bake recipes include some of these powerhouse ingredients:
Organic Chai Seeds: “Chai” in Mayan means “Strength” and the Mayans originally channeled the chai seed as an abundant and sustainable source of energy! One ounce of Chai Seeds contain 4 grams of protein and 11 grams of fiber. A little goes a long way with this rejuvenated super food.
Nut Butters: Vitamin E, Protein, monounsaturated fats…all amazing things about nut butters that make them a heart healthy and substantial glue to many energy bites.
Blue Agave: While agave nectar is still considered a sweetener and should be used modestly, this naturally super sweet sugar/honey substitute also contains nutrients that positively affect weight loss and cholesterol levels.
Rolled Oats: These old-fashioned carbs are anything but flakey when it comes to healthy benefits. Oats are an amazing source of good carbs and fiber – two things that help maintain good metabolism and weight control.
