Healthy Peanut Butter Energy Bites

Healthy energy bites made from 5 simple ingredients. Perfect for on-the-go! Bites are gluten free if using certified gluten free oats.


yield: 14 BITES




Ingredients:

2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
2 Tablespoons honey (or maple syrup)
1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup ground flax
2 Tablespoons mini chocolate chips
dash of salt to taste (optional)
dash of cinnamon (optional)
cocoa powder, cinnamon sugar, melted chocolate, or toasted coconut for rolling (optional)



Directions:

In a small bowl, melt the peanut butter and honey in the microwave in 10 second increments, stirring after each increment until completely melted and combined. Set aside.
In another small bowl, combine the oats and ground flax. Pour peanut butter/honey mixture over dry ingredients and stir until fully combined. Add more oats if the mixture is too moist. Stir in the chocolate chips, which will slightly melt upon contact.
Add salt and/or cinnamon to the mixture if you prefer. Roll into 14 balls. I rolled the balls into cocoa powder, but that’s optional.
Store the bites in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days. Bites freeze well and are good in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.



*These bites are highly adaptable. Add in you favorite nuts or seeds. Add more oats if the mixture seems too moist and likewise, add more melted peanut butter & honey if the mixture seems too dry and crumbly.

Eternal watermelons for an eternal summerWatermelon Popsicles with Mango and Kiwi (Vegan)

Whenever watermelon is brought into the house, my mind begins buzzing with things to do with it because it is just such a versatile fruit. Watermelon is the perfect fruit for making popsicles, because it’s so watery but naturally sweet and just tastes amazing frozen. The best part is that with watermelon, you don’t need yogurt, or honey or even ice to make the perfect popsicles.

  1. De-seed the Watermelon and puree it in a blender until it forms a liquidy red mixture
  2. Layer the bottom (or what will be the top) of your popsicle containers with diced Mango
  3. Place a coin of cut Kiwi on top of this diced Mango in each popsicle container, and then pour the watermelon puree in
  4. Freeze overnight and you should be good to go with these popsicles for breakfast, afternoon snacks or after-dinner fruit!

I found this gorgeous animated short film, which was directed by Ishida YuYasushi.  The stylization and charm reminds me of Studio Ghibli films or anything made by Mamoru Hosoda, the director of Summer Wars and The Girl who Leapt Through Time.

See THIS is why animation is so amazing. They make you feel for a chair. A CHAIR, PEOPLE. Tears! I’m a weeny and I’m crying, so there.

Daughter of a gun (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧ No idea if such a thing existed but surely there had to be girls born on board in the Age of Sail?

*puts on obnoxious historian hat*
*clears throat*
there were actually tons of women and girls on board ships during the age of sail and it’s really cool history that no one!!! ever!!! talks about!!! 
like captains of merchant ships used to bring their wives and children on board for long voyages all the time (and of course there were plenty of well known female pirate ship captains, and women cross-dressing as men, and prostitutes that more people seem to know of)
there’s actually a really amazing story of one woman, Mary Ann Patten who was the wife of the captain of this ship called Neptune’s Car. Captain Patten decided that he wanted her onboard with him and she was super about this and learned all about navigation and sailing and everything. so this one voyage they’re going around the tip of south america when her husband gets sick and is bed ridden with a fever right as the ship sails into one of the worst storms any of the crew had ever seen and it looks like they might lose the ship or have to stop
so you know who takes over??? the first mate??? 
no.
MARY
she took over the whole crew and sailed that ship through freezing water and pack ice and had it coasting smoothly into the san francisco harbour like it was nothing. and she did this all at age 19. while pregnant.
at one point the first mate tried to get the crew to mutiny against her but they all rallied with her and told him to shut the heck up because she obv knew what she was doing.
there’s a great book about women in the age of sail called ‘female tars’ by suzanne stark that i cannot recommend enough and has way more amazing stories and insights about the myriad roles women and girls played aboard ship during that time period.
(sorry i totally didn’t mean to hijack your post i love all of your art and this is gorgeous i just got over excited sorry sorry sorry)
