Food - Energy Bites 2

I have been recently inspired by a book recommendation from my medical doctor:   Superfood Kitchen: Cooking with Nature’s Most Amazing Foods byJulie  Morris

Food - Energy Bites 1

Ground Almonds (could use any nut) 1 C.

Flaxmeal 1/4 C.

Carob powder 1/4 C.

Green mix of spirulina/chlorella – 1/4 C.

Grated coconut – unsweetened – 1/2 C.

Honey – local, raw – 1/4 C.

Applesauce – organic – 1/4 C.

Cherries – dried, tart – 1/2 C.

Whip everything together in the food processor except the cherries.  Add last for just a quick mix-in, not to chop them up.  Make small balls and roll in more unsweetened coconut (or ground nuts).  Freeze.  Enjoy frozen!

I’m pretty amazed at how you can’t taste the spirulina or chlorella at all.  These energy balls taste great and make you feel great too!  This is an important concept of the book.  That is, an eating experience includes the after affects.  When you eat something that you really enjoy and you feel light, energetic and strong afterward that is the best eating experience!  Today I’m off to get some chia seeds.  I can’t wait to use them and report back.
