A Perfect On-The-Go Snack

Things are often really busy in my life so I am constantly looking for quick snack ideas that I can grab on the go, especially when I’m heading out the door to yoga. I find that having a quick snack about 30 minutes before yoga helps boost my energy for a great class. Date Bliss Balls are one of my favourite snacks because they are easy to make ahead of time, store in the freezer and then grab quickly as I’m running out the door.
