If you missed my VLOG yesterday;
I talked about how I’m including more Plant Based foods into my diet.
16 minutes of me rambling
I’ve loved all of your comments;
isn’t is great to know that we’re not alone when dealing with these situations?
gosh, I love my blogging community
you all rock!
I’m planning on doing 1 VLOG a week to update you on my liiiife;
I’ve got a good one coming up this week for
all about my struggles with my first competition
& how I feel about competing again.
Anyway, today is POWERMEAL A WEEK RECIPE LINK UP!
CARROT CAKE POWERBALLS!
1 cup Soaked Dates
(soaked mine in about 2 cups of water over night
in the fridge & then removed pits)
1/4 Cup Unsweet Coconut Flakes
3 Carrot Sticks (chopped)
1/2 Cup Soaked Nuts
(I used Brazil Nuts –
just soak over night in enough water to cover all nuts in the fridge)
**Nuts are easier to digest when you soak them & they blend better!
Just ask Jill Hanner!
Sprinkle of Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Ginger, & Cloves!
I like spices so I don’t really measure these – sprinkle to taste!
Blend in a food processer until combined
– if it’s too dry, add some of the liquid from your Soaked Dates!
Soaked Date Simple Syrup
The liquid left over from your soaked dates can also be used as a simple syrup!
I used about 2-2.5 cups of water over the 1 cup of dates
and then saved the liquid after wards!
Great natural sweetener for drinks or other recipes!
I ended up adding some back into the recipe to make it stick together more!
Form your sticky dough into POWERBALLS
& then roll in some more coconut!
These were a great pre & post workout treat!!
