Also, make sure you combine your grains with healthy fats and protein in order to slow down the carb digestion.

The energy bars is a good solution if you follow an active lifestyle and spend lots of hours away from your house. The chocolate chip bars, I offer you today, are based on oats, nuts, nut butter and other healthy ingredients. So, no cheating on healthy eating 😉

About couple days ago I wanted to make a hummus. I’ve had all the ingredients, except tahini. Without thinking too long, I went to the local fresh market and bought the sesame seeds. Yes, I’ve decided to make my own tahini.
The tahini recipe is really simple and doesn’t take that much time. Besides homemade hummus, you can use tahini in baking the cookies, cooking the noodles, preparing the sauces for meat and vegetables.
