I talk to a lot of mammas (and dads too!) and many of them are rushing from place to place without thinking of what they’re going to eat during the day.
We are busier than ever and it’s so (so!) important to make sure that we have time to eat nutrient-dense meals throughout the day so we avoid getting ‘hangry’.
It’s when we’re hangry that we’re more apt to stop at Timmy’s for a glazed donut.
If you want that for a treat, go for it, but if possible we don’t want to be relying on that donut to keep our levels balanced throughout the day.
I’m always thinking about food of course, so I always try to have a snack ready just in case I need it.
Most days I just carry a little glass container with nuts and seeds, but sometimes I manage to make a few of these energy bites to take along with me.
I find one or two helps to stave off the hunger for a bit because they have a good whack of fibre, fat and protein to make it the perfect little snack.
