More macro balls! Cinnamon & sweet snickerdoodle macro balls
Macro balls on repeat. I enjoyed my lemon macro balls so much, that I made another variation – snickerdoodle macro balls! They’re sweet, cinnamon-y and full of all the healthy fats and protein. These are perfect for when I’m on the go or after my morning workout.
Friends, I’m not feeling the best. This fall/winter has been brutal in regards to my health. I don’t think I’ve had so many yucky days the last few months. I’m over it. I need some sunshine and warmth. Anybody else feeling this way?
It’s been a challenge to “rest” when I’m not feeling well. I constantly feel like I need to be doing something and filling my time. Which sounds crazy, I know. But it’s hard! My body pretty much has to scream for me to stop (which it is currently). I get super fatigued, muscles start hurting and aching, ears hurt, head hurts and then the onslaught of nose, throat and stomach. Yuck. Bye.
What do you do when you’re not feeling the best? I would love to hear your tips and routines. XO.
Now to the good stuff. Snickerdoodle macro balls – full of cinnamon, coconut sugar and healthy fats and protein.
