Protein

These protein balls are an easy snack that is packed full of energy. They are great for a busy day when all you can do is grab a couple and run out the door.

As a mother of 3 I understand all too well how quickly a day can go by and I have not had enough to eat.  Unfortunately everyone suffers, not just me.  Yes, I get a little cranky, LOL. On top of a great pick me up snack they are very quick and easy to make, which is perfect for those of us with very little spare time.
