Everyone needs a little pick-me up here and there. Before you reach for that cup of coffee, try these bad boys and feel that rush of energy the natural way :)
1 cup pitted dates
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup mixture of nuts (I used mostly almonds, a few walnuts and a few pecans)
1/4 cup seeds (pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds)
1/2 cup oats
- Blend all ingredients (minus oats) into a food processor.
- Once all ingredients are blended and the texture is quite sticky - I add whole oats to thicken it up but if you are gluten intolerant, coconut flour can be substituted.
- Once you have desired consistency, roll into granola bar shapes, sprinkle with sesame seeds, coconut or chia seeds and wrap individually.
- Store in the fridge.
Feeling weak, anxious and unconnected to my body lead me to start exercising. I joined a dance class once a week and after every dance class I had a glow about me, and it wasn't just from the sweat that I built up in class, it was something more. I realized it was the endorphins that were being produced from the physical activity I was doing. That was 13 years ago. Since then I have devoted my career life to helping other humans, like yourself, kick butt in their health and fitness goals. If you're looking for a helping hand or not even knowing where you should start... I would be more than honoured to help!
