Well hey there, all! I hope everyone had an amazing holiday! Clearly, I was rather busy, as I haven’t been writing.

Today, I figured I’d get back in the swing of things, by sharing my vegan energy bites recipe- how apropos! These energy bites were a trial and error concoction, but the end result was fantastic! 

As you know, I come from a big Italian family. As such, I decided to make these energy balls, with an Italian flair ~my family loved them! These outstanding energy bites taste like a almond cookie and granola bar fusion. Delicious. They are simple to make, provide protein, convenient snack or to-go food, and only 2 will fill you up! Nom!

Before we get to making these beauties, I just want to touch on a couple things. First, thank you to all who read the blog. I am touched by the amount of positive feedback I’ve received, and feel grateful for each and every person who likes, reads, and shares my work.

Going forward, I may shift how often I post, as I really want to focus on quality work. Writing the recipes are easy, but the “writing” section (my priority) can’t be forced- especially my poetry. That said, I will be posting around 3-4 times a week between all the sections.

And here I ask for help.

I need support to get my work out there. As I’ve played around with promoting the blog, I’ve found it to be extremely expensive. I don’t think promoting good work, needs to be so costly. But more concerning, many of my readers (on certain social media sites) have told me they don’t always see my new posts.

As such, I’d ask anyone who’s interested in the material on the blog, to please subscribe to the blog (by email). By signing up by email to the blog, you’ll receive a once a week update on articles. The email will come to you on Tuesdays, and give you direct links to new articles. (You won’t get spam or other crap, I promise.)

Anyhow, I’m just looking to make sure the work gets out there to you all. Also, if you share the work/blog, I’d truly appreciate it. As I’ve said before, I’ll never have advertising on my page, so you will all have a clean site to come visit, read, and journey along with ~ thank you, again! 

And finally, my best to you and yours, this holiday season! 
I know the holidays can be difficult, it’s not all rainbows and butterflies. But I’m looking forward to exploring it all (both negative and positive) with you this season ~ It’s life, not a hayride.

Let’s  journey on, together.

Peace, love, and light,
