There are so many things that can sap our energy – work, school, family, exercise, stress – and in summer, the heat can drain us as well. Before you reach for another cup of coffee or some packaged “energy” drink, stop to think about what you’re doing. Extra caffeine from coffee, soda and those “energy” drinks will just leave you jittery, and that’s not real energy. What about that mid-afternoon candy bar? All that refined sugar will just pick you up and make you crash soon after. When you feel like you need some refueling, reach for a power-packed snack ball instead. Snack balls are healthy snacks with just the right ingredients to boost your energy, and they won’t make you crash later. Energy-packed snack balls are a perfect size – just a bite or two – to fuel you up without weighing you down.

Take a look at these 10 Big, Bad Amazing Vegan Energy Bites, Balls and Bombs and these 7 Nutrient-Dense Energy Balls That Will Power Your Day! As you can see, there are many choices that are healthy and delicious. Also known as bliss balls, protein balls, dough balls, energy balls, protein truffles, and amazeballs, these little treats are perfect any time of the day. Whether you eat them for an energy boost or for just a delicious little snack, you’ll love these 25 snack balls from our Food Monster App!
