Affectionately known as “goth balls” — here’s another spooky Halloween snack. I don’t love energy bites that are date-based, and they all seem to be, so I whipped up my own batch with the jar of black sesame paste I still have yet to finish.
You’ve probably heard the phrase EAT THE RAINBOW! Not to be confused with Skittles’ “Taste the Rainbow” slogan… this is the exact opposite of eating chemical/sugar-laden candies. It’s about having a variety of natural colors in our diet, because the more color means the more phytonutrients, and the more phytonutrients, the better for our bodies!
You know how much I love meal prep, and this recipe is a perfect summer meal to have ready when you come home from a day at the beach! Bonus points if you have a grill to toss the burgers on and really take advantage of the outdoors before the cold eventually creeps in.
This was a recipe I made for my ebook, the 10-Day Energy-Boosting Meal Plan. It was one of the first big things I did with my business and I’m still really proud of it. It was 31 pages! With 20 of my own recipes! And I took all the photos with my phone.

Do you have a morning routine? One that doesn’t involve spraying your hair with dry shampoo and flying out the door with a bagel hanging out of your mouth?

In my past work life, I’d either be running around all day or on the computer all day – better yet, I’d combine the two and work on my phone while in an Uber going to my next client. Meals were not a priority – and having one away from my computer? Please. I loved my job but constantly being on-the-go was eating away at me, I was depressed, tired all the time, moody.
