Maca Coconut Balls

Mothers are busy ladies in a busy world.  It is time for us, moms, to take time for ourselves.  “Me” time is an important lifestyle choice that will make you a happier, more contented person.  For some that might mean reading a book (that’s me), going for a walk, or just doing something you enjoy.  

Before sitting down to put your feet up — make a quick batch of these treats to enjoy with your cup of tea and a book.

Have an awesome Mother’s Day on Sunday!  I know I will — my family is making dinner.
