Handing out Peanut Butter Energy Balls

I made a second batch of Peanut Butter Energy Balls on Friday. I used the ground flaxseed, which the recipe called for, instead of sesame seeds I used last week.

And I have to say, this second batch is much tastier than the first. I also added a little more peanut butter. I actually made two batches this time around: one with chocolate chips and one with raisins.

I think I like the raisin ones better, crazy, I know. But the raisins are smoother than the hard chocolate chips. Curt and I snacked on them over the  weekend. I think I snacked a little more than he did. 🙂

I found the ground flaxseed at Trader Joe’s in the cereal aisle with the various oatmeals.

I took some into work today for my co-workers.

I handed out a a bunch of Peanut Butter Energy Balls to co-workers today. Of everyone I got feedback from, the energy balls got a thumbs up. (And they could possibly be a cure for Spring Forward exhaustion. OK, maybe not. But they could help, just a little.)

Here’s the recipe again, in case you want to try it yourself:

1 cup regular oatmeal
1/2 cup … Continue reading

Milk+cold congestion=bad idea

Last week I had eaten Honey Nut Cheerios dry. On Friday I wanted them with milk. I wanted cereal so much. I decided to have them with milk. Ugh, bad idea. Soon after my congestion increased for the rest of the day.

Today I wanted Raisin Bran. So I bought soy milk at the grocery. It wasn’t quite the same. But at least I could have some cereal without my congestion increasing.

Today was seriously a day of rest. I napped on and off all day. And I am still tired. I will be happy when I finally kick this cold.

I am loving Fiber One and blueberries

The other night I wasn’t sure what to have for dinner. I was looking in the pantry and I saw that I had some Fiber One Original cereal. I grabbed that and added some blueberries that I had bought to add to my homemade smoothies.

I had that for breakfast yesterday, today and for a snack last night. (I have guitar class on Tuesdays–so I try to eat something at work about 5 p.m. and then eat a light snack around 9 p.m. at home.)

And now I am out of both the cereal and blueberries. Boo! But I will be buying some more at the grocery this weekend.

Yummy and healthy and filling–that is really the most important part.
