Dr. Neela’s Favorite Power Snack

When you need a little extra brain power to get through a busy day (AKA every day), a healthy snack makes all the difference. We asked Dr. Neela to share her favorite snack for packed days in the clinic. When she can only grab a bite to eat in between patients, she prepares The Girl Who Ate Everything‘s energy balls prior to the work day – they include protein, fiber, and a little chocolate.  Full recipe can be found here.  Images are courtesy of The Girl Who Ate Everything, another incredible working mom.
