Are you on the hunt for yummy, healthy, on-the-go breakfast ideas? These No-Bake Chocolate Energy Balls are easy to take along with you during the morning rush, and they’re filled with tons of nutrients, protein, and most importantly, chocolate!
I made a promise to take better care of myself this year. That doesn’t necessarily mean skimping on foods that make me happy, it just means redefining what foods make me happy, and why. Most junk foods have healthier counterparts that you can substitute with, so you can still keep the yummy but also invest in your health, and feeling better. Clearly, I’ve found a healthy way to get my daily dose of chocolate!
