Homemade no-bake energy bites

Homemade no-bake energy bites

A few years ago, my mom and her friends roped me into joining their marathon relay team and then assigned me the longest leg of the race, arguing that because I was the youngest, I would also be the fastest. 

I ran my 7.5 miles on an empty stomach, powered only by my insanely competitive nature and the little bit of water that I gulped along the course. When I arrived back at the finish line, I was presented with a bottle of chocolate milk — an excellent exercise recovery drink, I have since learned — and, inexplicably, a slice of pizza. Thankfully, the snack kept me from collapsing while I waited for my team to finish. 

All this to say, I’m not great at remembering to fuel my body appropriately before or after a workout. Especially after. Usually, I just wait until I feel super hungry and then grab whatever is nearest as my post-workout meal. It’s not a great move.
