Keep them on hand for when hanger strikes.

Do you ever barrel past the point of hungry into "hangry" (hungry + angry) territory? Yeah, not fun. Prevent the pains of hanger with snacks that provide your body with a combination of complex carbs, healthy fat, and protein. These blueberry cashew energy bites perfectly fit the bill. They have oats (a good source of carbs and fiber), and cashew butter and raw cashews for some heart-healthy fats and a bit of protein. The recipe also has hemp hearts for some omega fatty acids and dried blueberries for a hit of antioxidants.

Whip these blueberry energy bites up at the beginning of the week, and keep them around to snack on when you're crazy-busy and need something to hold you over until your next meal. (More: Deliciously Satisfying Energy Balls That Will Keep You Full for Hours)
