In a recent poll within my newsletter, most of you said that cooking was your greatest struggle. Shopping, meal planning, and cooking are tough jobs to keep up with once hectic days start up again.  I hear ya.  Give me 31 days and I’ll give you some fresh, delicious easy recipes every day of August!  Let’s get started, shall we?!

Delicious easy recipes

Energy Bites

Let’s kick Day 1 off with speedy breakfast or snack ideas that can be eaten at home or thrown in a lunchbox with ease (for adults and kids). There are many delicious easy recipes below, so there should be a little something for everyone: no bake, some nutty, some nut-free, some chocolate, etc.

I’ve rounded up ten scrumptious choices that require minimal effort and time – I’m predicting that they will be helpful lifesavers for incredible protein.

  1. Cranberry Almond Energy Bites from The Creative Bite
  2. Banana Chocolate Energy Bites from My Whole Food Life
  3. No-Bake Chocolate Energy Bites from A Cultivated Nest
  4. Cherry Cheesecake Energy Bites from Amanda’s Cookies
  5. Nutella Chia Energy Bites from Baking-Ginger
  6. No Bake Oatmeal Energy Bars from The How-to Guru
  7. One-Bowl Lunchbox Energy Bites (Nut-Free) from Real Food Whole Life
