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. Join me and start moving and feel the difference. Read my blog to get motivation, try the exercises I've posted, contact me for personal training, bootcamps, workout cards or just go for a walk. Any activity is good activity.
