Healthy Holidays: Peanut Butter Balls (Recipe)

Tuesday, December 1, 2015

As I sat munching on a piece of whole grain toast and peanut butter this morning, a common breakfast in my world, it occured to me that peanut butter balls would be a super addition to my “30 Recipes in 30 Days” series on healthy holiday eating. After all, these tasty packages can double as either holiday treat or on-the-go snack. They’re perfect for athletes looking for a protein and energy boost, and kids love them, too. Furthermore, this recipe works for gluten-free folks and those with dairy allergies. There are a lot of fun ways to get creative with this recipe, so click here and check it out!

This month I’ll be sharing my “best of” recipes and tips that take me through the holiday season healthfully and happily (and avoiding weight gain). I hope you’ll join me. The menu will feature all of the things that comprise a salubrious diet for both your body and our planet, like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts and beans, and sustainable proteins. In other words, what Cooking & Eating the PK Way looks like in practice during the holidays. (Learn more about my mission here). My philosophy is built upon the basics of healthy eating as shown in Harvard’s Healthy Eating Plate, yet the food-loving PK Way features my flair for global flavors—and a tantalizing taste of moderation. Because healthy food shouldn’t suck.
