We have blueberries that are turning blue, and apples in our trees.

What should I do with them?

This morning I was wiped out after my workout; in fact, it was a struggle to get through the entire Shred. (My least favorite part of Shred, by the way? Knee circles in the warm up. No.) I had gone on an extra long walk early with Basil, but that’s not really unusual. I’m not usually tired after my workouts. I’m done, but not tired. I needed energy.

When I was young my mom used to make no bake peanut butter balls. She’d roll them in all kinds of toppings – carob powder was my favorite.

I came up with an energizing recipe inspired by my mom’s peanut butter balls.

I started with one cup peanut butter. I used Adam’s: ingredients = peanuts.

I added 2 scoops chocolate protein powder.

5 tablespoons hemp hearts!

2 tablespoons molasses. Made about three hours away, in Eugene!

Rolled into about 3/4 inch balls, with hemp hats on:


No hemp hearts? Substitute nuts, seeds, oats, oat bran, granola… I’m already thinking of the next ones I’m going to make.

Keep in refrigerator:

They just got a “Mmm – Hmm” and a “NOM” from Jason.


With the 4th of July holiday this weekend, I should be thinking about good old american apple pie. Any other ideas for apples?

American readers, what are your plans for the holiday weekend?

Do you need to laugh so hard that it will concern your dog? Read David Thorne’s blog. Hilarity.

Happy Friday + holiday, everyone!
