i am having more meatless days lately… not that i don’t like or don’t want to eat meat… i’m just not in the mood to prepare it…
my not so tasty looking meatless dinner: mashed sweet potato (with skin on), with sautéed garlic, onion and pak choy… delish!

energy bites
i’ve seen so many energy bites on the internet, so i wanted to try them myself. i didn’t want to use any honey or syrup, so i wasn’t sure if it was going to succeed or not. for the first time, it took a bit of effort, but they are completed.
ingredients
(10 servings *) energy bites: 75 gr. (pitted) dates 30 gr. peanut butter20 gr. oats20 gr. sunflower seeds10 gr. pumpkin seeds10 gr. cacao nibs5 tsp bee pollen5 gr. shredded coconut+/- 3 tsp water
* per serving: 83 calories, 7 gr. carbs, 3 gr. fat, 2 gr. protein
instructions
(remove the pits from the dates, then) blend the unpitted dates together with the peanut butter and water until it forms a paste
mix in all the remaining ingredients and blend again (but not into a smooth paste, i kept it a bit chunky)
divide the mixture into 10 and roll into balls.
roll them in the shredded coconut and they are done.
you can keep them for about a week in the fridge, but i am going to freeze them.
enjoy!~
