Today we’re welcoming back Martina(check out her initial guest post here)! Martina is a wonderful holistic nutritionist here in Ontario, Canada and today she’s sharing a recipe for energy balls!
You may remember Martina from this post on Changes to Focus On When Chasing Health Goals. Since Martina is a holistic nutritionist she focuses on the whole picture and not just one aspect of your lifestyle when making change.
One of the biggest struggles people face is what to eat! As a holistic nutritionist Martina believes in eating good quality food that helps fuel and recharge your body (cough cough.. we have something in common!).
Today Martina is sharing one of her favorite recipes “Magic Energy Balls”.
They are balanced with the proper protein, fat and carbohydrates to give you the perfect boost of energy in times of need, and help you avoid reaching for your go-to craving foods.
