Oatmeal Peanut Butter Energy Bites

I’m always searching for an amazing snack that is healthy, delicious, and will keep me full until my next meal.  Typically, I crave salty foods, and I used to reach for a bag of chips or pretzels mid-morning, but that never held me off until lunch.  So I went about searching for recipes to try something new, and I stumbled upon gold!!  Five words – Oatmeal.  Peanut.  Butter.  Energy.  Bites.

Here’s the deal people – these things are AMAZING!  Seriously, they are my absolute favorite snack!  I could eat a hundred of them (although that defeats of whole “healthy” purpose, but you get the gist).  They are packed full of goodness, they taste like dessert, and they keep my belly rumble free.  You HAVE to try them out!

How I Changed My Whole Week In One Sunday Afternoon

If you’re looking to eat healthy, stay on track for your diet, or really just make your life simpler, then meal prep is for you! Especially if you have a little one in the house, meal prep is DEFINITELY for you! By spending just a few hours on Sunday, I’m able to make all of my breakfasts and lunches for the entire week! It honestly makes the week so much smoother, and helps me stick to healthy options. When I find myself starving at work before lunch, I’m able to grab a quick, prepared snack rather than something I’ll regret from the vending machine. If I didn’t have a six month old, having all my breakfasts made would mean I get to sleep in a little bit longer… but what is sleep when you have kids???

How to Stay Healthy and Shop at Aldi (While Saving Money!)

First of all, if you’ve never been to an Aldi, GO! – right now, I mean it.  You are seriously missing out.  But before you toss your phone in your pocket and head out the door, there’s a few things to know:

  1. Bring a quarter if you want to use a shopping cart.  Seems a bit odd, but it’s one of the reasons the food is SO much cheaper!  Plus, when you return your cart at the end of your trip, you get your quarter back.  I totally should have made some football pun with that comment…
  2. You’ll also want to bring your own reusable bags (or you can buy some there).  After you check out, you’ll pack your own groceries in those bags, which is just another way they can offer low prices!

That’s it, that’s all you need to know!  Now you can head out the door, but I recommend reading the rest of this post before doing so!
