Finding simple, healthy energy-packed foods is essential to maintaining high energy. Energy is very important when it comes to keeping yourself active and healthy, because without it you will crash.
If you're like me, then you look for the best options which contain the least amount of chemicals, preservatives, and questionable ingredients. The easiest way to ensure this is to take a little time for yourself and your family, and set up shop in the kitchen!
Most of the dry ingredients can be found in your preferred bulk foods store (Natural Food Pantry, Mother Hubbard's, Bulk Barn, and Rainbow Foods are a great place to start).
If you're not sure where to start looking for such recipes, look no further than Katie from Kitchen Stewardship's fantastic e-book called "Healthy Snacks to Go". In this, contains over 30 simply healthy recipes, which take little time, minimal preparation in some cases, and always result in happy, satisfied kids and parents.

Since cooking with your kids is a great way to bond and create a relationship that lasts through teenagehood, including them in the preparation and assembling stages of each recipe, and possibly even the cooking/baking stage, will make them feel not only an integral part of the family, but they will also be learning about their foods, and what makes them taste so good or feel so good.
If you have any of your own simple easy and healthy recipes that you'd like to share, please leave a comment and let the rest of the world know.
