Not-so-Naughty Low-FODMAP Bliss Balls

Low-FODMAP Bliss Balls

From one FODMAP-Foodie to the next, when you find a safe (and delicious) protein ball recipe, ultimately you want to share it with the world!  So a few months back as I was trawling Pinterest for some weekly food-prep goodies I stumbled upon Laiken’s blog everydaysimplehealth and her wonderful FODAMAP-friendly & fructose free bliss balls.

IMG_0955Exhausted. This fine Thursday I am simply exhausted. After some sort of mental crash on Monday, a rushed and jam packed Tuesday, a 4.30am start with a 7.30pm finish on my Wednesday and now another early commute today I am shattered.

Now, usually I let my exhaustion get the better of me; I become down and out, struggling to find reasons to smile.
