meals for the week: vol. 2

look at this, two weeks in a row--i'm on a a roll.

but seriously, even though i wasn't able to fully stick to the menu last week, it was super helpful at saving me time, brain power, and from being overwhelmed. so, i'm pretty excited.

i made these no-bake energy balls to eat for snacks (thank you, lindsey for the recommendation). i may have eaten them for breakfast a few days, too.
they were so good.

no-bake energy balls
yields about 20; adapted from here.

1 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup nut butter (peanut or almond)
1/2 cup flaxseed meal
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup honey
1 tbsp chia seeds

in a medium mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and mix until wet. set in refrigerator until chilled (at least a half an hour). once chilled, scoop out and shape mix into a ball. i make them so they take about two bites to eat. store in either refrigerator or freezer in an airtight container.

you're welcome.
