Sometimes, you just need a little pick-me-up in between meals. We all get a little snacky, even when eating three well-rounded meals a day and doing our best to maintain an energetic, active lifestyle! Snacking healthy doesn’t have to taste like cardboard, either. Grab something protein-packed and made with whole, good-for-you ingredients, with just enough sweetness to satisfy your sweet tooth. But why stop there? Make it an essential oil snack while you’re at it so you can get all the benefits of essential oils in one yummy, sustainable bite. Our Wild Orange Power Bites are a tasty snack complete with the bright flavor and aroma of Wild Orange essential oil. The best part about them is that they only take five minutes to make—and they’ll probably be gone just as quickly. SUPPLIES
