5 Minute Maca Energy Bites

Have you tried maca root powder yet?  Maca root is a tuber, kind of like a potato.  It is very well known as a natural energy booster.  It can also help with hormonal issues such as menopause and fertility.  Maca is rich in B vitamins as well.  It can be pricey, but I promise that a little goes a long way, so the bag will last a long time.  Kind of like chia seeds.  You may even be able to buy maca powder out of the bulk bins at Whole Foods.  I love putting maca powder in my Chocolate Almond Butter Overnight Oats because it adds a malty flavor that goes well with the chocolate.   These Maca Energy Bites will not only give you a natural energy boost, but also a pretty good protein and fiber boost as well.  If you enjoy my Maca Energy Bars, you will love these!

Simple Roasted Pepitas

Did you know that eating something salty can curb a sweet tooth?  I swear it works.  I keep roasted pepitas on hand all the time for that very reason. If you don’t know what pepitas are, they are the inside part of a pumpkin seed.  Roasted pepitas have such great flavor.  Pepitas are also a great source of magnesium and omega 3 fatty acid.  When made in this fashion, they can be quite addicting.  My kids love them as well.
