Not every life change has to be a sweeping new year’s resolution. In fact, the biggest changes you can make to your life are the little things that you do each and every day that add up. If you simply woke up 20 minutes earlier each morning to do yoga, that adds up to over 2 hours of exercise a week! Or if you swap out your daily $5 coffee for coffee made at home, you could save over $1,000 in a year (this stat fully applies to me…).

One of my favorite go-to snacks are protein balls. They are a good homemade alternative to granola bars and can save you money too! I’ve experimented with a few different combinations, since I usually just use what is in my pantry, but this one has been my favorite combination so far!
