New Recipe: Almond and Hemp Seed Balls

I need grab and go ALL the TIME.  Nursing, pumping and my increased running mileage has me QUITE hungry these days.  When I did my first round of The 30, I learned that I needed to add more fat and protein to my diet.  Now, I need even more.  I wanted to create an “ball” type snack that I could portion out and eat on the go as a mini meal.  Nuts and seeds are such a great source of healthy fats and you can’t go wrong when you add in hemp seeds!!  These are great and contain natural, whole ingredients and provide a wonderful source of healthy fat!

Please excuse my lack of photography.  As I have mentioned MANY times.  I am not a food photography blogger. I just like to make and eat food.  You will just have to trust me that they taste good!
