Collagen Infused Sweet Energy Bites

A couple of days ago, I decided to make a snack that satisfies my sweet tooth, and incorporates healthy ingredients. I have made plenty of protein/energy bites in the past, and I knew I wanted to try using my new Organisource protein and collagen powder in them. So I looked over a few recipes and came up with the following:

• 2 cups 100% whole grain old fashioned oats

• 2 tablespoons flax seeds

• 2 tablespoons chia seeds

• 2 cups nut butter

• 2/3 cup 100% maple syrup

• 1 cup granola

• 2 scoops Organisource Chocolate Keto Collagen with MCT Powder

The type of nut butter and granola you use for this recipe is totally up to you. For my energy bites, I chose all natural peanut butter and organic dark chocolate and red berries granola. You can also use any type of protein powder you have on hand!

Making these energy bites is super simple! Just add your ingredients to a large bowl and mix well with a spoon. Be sure your nut butter is evenly dispersed throughout the mixture.

After your ingredients are thoroughly mixed, refrigerate for about 30 minutes. Once chilled, scoop round tablespoons of the mixture out and form into balls. This recipe should make about 30 bites, give or take.

Now your energy bites are ready to enjoy! Be sure to keep any leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge to snack on later.

I love this recipe because it is incredibly simple to make and the energy bites themselves are easy to eat on the go! It is also completely customizable; it’s up to you to choose which nut butter, protein powder, and granola to use! So try it out, and let me know what ingredients you included in your energy bites in the comments below!


Team Organisource

I wanted to introduce you guys to an amazing company that you may not have heard of yet, called Organisource! They offer all natural, high quality supplements, ethically sourced from Mother Nature herself.

I recently teamed up with Organisource in hopes of creating a happier, healthier me. I not only committed to being an ambassador for this amazing brand, I also began a regular exercise routine, working out daily. Which, is a huge deal for me, as I haven’t regularly exercised since my days as a competitive cheerleader in high school (roughly 9ish years ago)!

So I tried out the Chocolate Keto Collagen with MCT Powder (which was surprisingly delicious) to help aid me in my journey into the land of health and wellness.

I chose this protein powder due to the fact that it had so many benefits! The regular use of collagen peptides keeps your skin healthy and hydrated, prevents wrinkles/stretch marks, and supports joint, bone, and ligament vitality. It is also full of amino acids, which helps support lean muscle and prevent injury. MCT Powder contains essential fatty acids, which convert to clean energy and keep you satiated. Plus, unlike many other protein powders, this one is easily digestible and benefits the intestinal lining. It is also sugar-free, gluten-free, and Keto friendly (although I’m not personally a Keto dieter).

After just one use, I can already tell this powder supplies you with amazing energy, and not the jittery kind either! I’m super stoked to see what this protein powder does for me in terms of my hair, skin, and nail health, as well as the effect it has on my achey-breaky joints. So stay tuned to see my results!

Why you should be Livin’ Lively, too

If you follow me on Instagram, you should know I’m a big fan of Lively, a lingerie company specializing in what they call “Leisurée,” or “athleisure for lingerie” according to Stylecaster.

The company has over 60 years of experience in manufacturing lingerie, and they source the highest quality materials they can find for their brand. Lively also owns their own factory, meaning they have control over every detail throughout the production process.

Lively, however, is not only about the products they sell. According to their website:

“it is about a mindset we want to share with women around the world. One that reminds, empowers, and enables us all to live life doing what we love, with the people we love!”

Cool, right? A brand that’s all for empowering women! Lively is also quite inclusive in comparison to some lingerie brands. With a wide array of sizing options and several shades of nudes, there’s something for nearly everyone!

Not only that, but this brand produces some of the comfiest bras, panties, swimwear, and loungewear I’ve ever owned! Seriously, I threw out all of my Victoria’s Secret bras as soon as I discovered Lively.

Not completely sold on the comfort level of Lively’s products? Take my word for it – I suffer from chronic pain due to fibromyalgia, and normally, bras and I don’t get along. They sit on some typically tender spots for me and there’s usually no way I can get through a full day of bra-wearing. Lively’s bralettes have been a game changer, though. I’ve even forgotten I had one on at times, which used to never be a thing!

Lively also offers accessories and apparel like totes and tees! They even have their own signature scent, “Jasmine. Sea. Sun.,” you can buy in your choice of candle or perfume.

The quality and comfort of Lively can’t be beat, and the prices are pretty good as well. They also offer a rewards program, making it easy to earn discounts on future purchases. You get free shipping with every order over $40 and if you don’t care for what you bought, or it does not fit, Lively offers free returns.

Lastly, I would just like to point out that I am not getting paid to write this post – I am just passionate about comfortable undergarments, tbh. So if you haven’t yet, do yourself a favor and try out Lively!
