My friend Brooke makes these incredible energy/snack bars. They really do rival anything you can buy at a grocer or at the farmer’s market. And besides, the energy bars they sell at our farmer’s market are $4 each. The ones at the health food store range from $2 to $6 – each! Making your own is a smart way to go.
Late night cravings? No problem!

Oatmeal is a rich source of soluble fiber, which is also found in apples, pears, prunes and barley. Keep in mind that the best way to get all the benefits of oatmeal is through real oats and not the instant stuff, which can be packed with sugar and sodium. To add flavor to your oats without adding tons of extra calories, like Brittany did you can add your favorite healthy mix-ins like fruit, seeds and even dried berries for a touch of sweetness.
TV host and actress, Jenny Wolf submitted this vegan banana vanilla pudding that tastes so much like a frozen pudding! The rich and creamy coconut almond milk compliments the banana’s unique taste perfectly. Spotted and very ripe bananas work best for this recipe.
