Moms who read my blog, I anticipate your jealousy over this next sentence. I slept OVER eight hours last night. I was only awoken twice! I am telling you I feel like a new woman!
It’s also friday; which means tonight we are going to see “The Lorax”. I swear I am more excited than the captain. The theatre near my house is selling “truffala trees” aka cotton candy on a pretty stick, and I plan on all of us getting one. It’s too cute not to.
As far as the rest of the crap they sell at the theatre? No way. I simply cannot abide by paying $15 for each ticket, $20 if you want 3D, plus $12 for stale popcorn that has enough salt in it to preserve a dead body, $6 for a small, sugar loaded soda, $6 for TWIZZLERS, I mean, how dare you charge me $6 for twizzlers?!?!? Don’t you know I need that twizzler to use as a straw for my diet coke?? In addition, in NYC you can also get an $8 knish and $4 kosher sour pickle.
Oh how I long for the days my girlfriends and I would go to the movies, bring airplane bottles of vanilla vodka, dump them into our diet cokes, and drink them with our twizzlers while watching sappy movies our boyfriends/husbands had no desire to go see with us. Remember “Waitress???”
So instead of paying $3459873469 for boozeless crap, I’ve got balls. Salty.Chocolate.balls. Pretty much everyone in the healthy living blogosphere has their own ball recipe. Some of my favorites have been Nicole’s goji balls and Gina’s balls. The fact that they’re both NYers is mere coincidence. In case you didn’t know this already, NYers have the biggest balls.
These particular balls have a nice balance of hunger busting protein, complex carbs, and fat. They are also free of refined sugar, white flour, and gluten. Not to mention, they contain honey, which is especially important this time of year, because the propolis in local honey helps protect you from hayfever and seasonal allergies. These simple, no-bake balls will keep you full between meals, and keep your body moving.
