Yummy (no bake) Protein Bites

I’m always making up some kind of protein bar or bite now that we’re trying to watch our carbs.

And, I’m always trying to find something to sweeten them, so that my hubby will actually eat them and not be tempted to bring home other desserts.

Because neither one of us need those!๐Ÿคช

I’ve made several protein bites before all with a nut base. For sweetening, I often use dried cranberries, honey or dates. Sometimes I add in oats, chocolate or coconut ๐Ÿฅฅ. I just try different nut and seed combos from time to time.

You can really do anything. They’re different everytime I make them.

All the ingredients came from ALDIS by the way.

Score! ๐Ÿ™Œ

There’s no baking, and they literally took maybe 20 minutes to make.

Double score! ๐Ÿ™Œ ๐Ÿ™Œ

So, here’s what I came up with this past Saturday.

Oh, and my hubs loved them btw. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ


Protein Bites

Ingredients:

1 cup pecan halves

1 cup unsalted almonds

1/4 cup chia seeds

2T coconut oil

3/4 cup chopped dates

1t vanilla

Salt to taste

Instructions:

Blend everything really well in a food processor.

Then, roll the mixture into small balls, place on a pan lined with parchment or wax paper and refrigerate.

Makes 21 small balls.

(They can also be frozen for later.)

But there’s no waiting really. You can eat them right away like my hubby did!

He’s already asked me to make a second batch. ๐Ÿค—

Enjoy!

Pathways

You never know whatโ€™s just around the bend (good or bad). Refocus to assure you donโ€™t swerve too far off the chosen path youโ€™ve been asked to travel. .

Have No Regrets!

Do you constantly see things in the news or feel frustrated with hearing issues you wish you could change? ๐Ÿ˜ฟWell, you can… in your own, little corner of the world. Bloom where youโ€™re planted. ๐ŸŒปYou may not be able to help everybody, but you can help that one person.

Do good. ๐ŸŒพ

Even in your own struggle and pain; REACH OUT to others.

Itโ€™s very hard at times, with all that life throws you, but oh so rewarding!

You were designed for a purpose. Donโ€™t leave this earth regretting you didnโ€™t do more to help mankind or to be Godโ€™s hand extended.

Waste no time.

Leave this earth knowing you made it a better place!

What’s UP?

Hey friends!

Some of you have asked where I’ve been as I really haven’t posted much of anything on my website/blog since Thanksgiving, other than an occasional picture to let you know I’m still out here in blog land.๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ

But, I had promised to share pictures from our trip out west to the Grand Canyon, Zion and surrounding sites. (I feel bad as some of you said you โ€œcouldn’t wait to see them”…so sorry. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ )

The deal is, I’ve been battling a lot of worsening health issues for the last 10 years with the last 2 just being unbearable pain. I’ve been trying to find answers for my lack of mobility and constant, daily pain for 2 yrs. now, mainly concentrated in my lower back, legs and arms.

[Basically, walking, sitting, and also doing anything that involved my arms has been excruciating…even at rest; just “being” really.]

Hence, I haven’t felt like typing much…nor can I do much of anything.

AND…to add to that, I have an eye disease that gives me further issues and blogging isn’t always feasible. I’m really not to be on any media/device at length.

Yeah, I’m soon to be 55 and feel 80 sometimes. UGGH!

(Well, some 80 year olds ๐Ÿ‘ณโ€โ™€๏ธ are actually in better shape than me, sadly.)

**Interestingly, this blog was intended to cover health issues initially, because I have researched and tried sooo many things over the last 40 years and have learned so much ranging from hormonal imbalances, to urticaria, edema, resistant asthma, Lyme Disease, insomnia, blepharitis, to skin diseases, to…you name it… my husband and I have even talked about doing YouTube videos to share our experiences.

I’m a little camera shy though. ๐ŸŽฌ๐Ÿ‘€ so, we shall see.๐Ÿค”

But I really really feel the need to help people and have done a ton of research on multiple issues.

I just really want to share any findings/tips and hope for those suffering so horribly.

I’ve read a lot of the same type of stories as mine, people desperate for answers, and my heart goes out to them! So, I still want to get to helping others by providing what knowledge I have acquired.

In fact, if you’re interested with that type of information, being a part of my site here, or if I should add it to a site I already own, typically for health help, please leave me feedback!

I feel I haven’t gone through all of this for nothing and want to help others so badly!โ™ฅ๏ธ #dontwanttowastemysufferings

I’m kind of a health detective ๐Ÿง of sorts, ha ha. No, but for real!

Sooo, I say all that to let you know where I’ve been and what exactly is up. ๐Ÿ˜

I hope to get better as I just had some steroid shots in my neck and am able to type without pain at the present, a first, YAHOO!

I’m trying to stay positive but past procedures have really let me down. I have had some good days for now…a first…so I’ll sure take it!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

I just HATE using steroids (that’s another topic), and had a lot of them these past 2 yrs, but sometimes you just get so desperate!

Anyhow, I hope to be back to doing something on this blog soon!

Fingers crossed!๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ

Hope you’re all doing well!

PS And so sorry I haven’t been visiting your blogs much these past few months, either. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
