RECIPE: Apricot and Goat Cheese Balls

Need a delicious high protein snack, a fabulous hors d’oeuvre, or a unique and decadent dessert?

Well, I’ve got ALL 3 in one stylish sphere.

These lil’ balls are blow-your-mind good and so simple, even your ex-boyfriend could make them.

And by the way, don’t be afraid of cheese! We’ve been taught it’s high in fat and therefore “unhealthy”, but we need healthy fats to absorbs vitamins, AND it’s protein and fat that make us feel full all day long!

So enjoy this decadent treat–just don’t eat them all in one sitting.
