Vanilla Energy Bars

It’s early in the morning. You’re rushing out the door to get the kids to school, or to get to work. You have your lunch packed, but don’t have anything healthy for your mid-morning or afternoon snack. Often, those are the times where you’ll grab a bag of chips or something sweet to tide you over. Only problem, those little treats can pack very little nutrition, add unwanted calories, and derail all the good you’ve been doing. But when your treats become Shakeology treats, that’s a completely different story.
