When I am hungry, really hungry, I need to eat ASAP. When we get to this point when we absolutely need to eat something, we tend to go for whatever is easiest and closest. This is often when we grab something less than ideal health wise just to satisfy our hunger.
A very common solution while at work is to head over to the vending machine around 3 pm for a little pick me up to get through the rest of the day. I know I used to do this when I worked in an office.
This energy bar recipe or others like it are a great way to avoid falling into that trap. When you are prepared for the hunger you can reach for something healthy that is still delicious! And I promise you that these coconut cashew apricot energy bars are just that.
