I got this note a few weeks back from one of my favorite people in the world, Cathy Theimer Shaw. She is a Renewal Detox and KIC star, and oh, how I adore her! One of the things I like most about Cathy is that she takes action. Even with a busy schedule as a mom and business owner, she still makes time to prepare healthy meals and snacks for herself and loved ones.
“Ok, so I have two words for you – POWER BALLS! I had no idea these would be sooooo good! I threw them together for an after school snack for the kids and need to get out of this house so I don’t eat anymore! Here’s what I have waiting for the kids at 2:30. My husband just came in so three have mysteriously gone missing- you can see the before and after below. How yummy are these?!
We are busy right now with 3 kids, 3 schools and 3 sports teams, but we continue to eat well though – thanks to my stockpile of recipes from you, Lisa. I love to bake so after school snacks are my favorite (healthy ones of course *grin*). But those balls – aaah! – They were loved by all! In fact, my Kate had a friend over who ate at least four of them and was particularly fond of the cinnamon covered ones (I improvised and rolled one row in cinnamon b/c my kids love it and to no surprise, those went first!). “ ~Cathy
