    protein power balls

    No Comments

    These snack balls are perfect for a pre work out snack, post work out recovery, lunch box treat, or in my case “need calories for breastfeeding” snack. They are packed with protein (4-5 grams per ball), good fats and minimal natural sugar from the dates which you can certainly omit if you don’t want any sugar. I’ve made these with sunbutter so that they are allergy friendly but you can use whatever nut butter you have on hand (peanut, cashew, almond, etc).

    healthy snacking: kale chips

    No Comments

    I often forget how easy and delicious kale chips are! The big kale chip hype was probably ten years ago but they never get old. They only take about 5 minutes prep and 15 minutes oven time! Also, for those of you who have never had homemade kale chips, don’t knock them until you’ve tried them! They are perfectly airy, crispy and salty and I bet you won’t be able to stop eating them. You can add whatever flavors you choose like Za’Atar seasoning, lemon, tamari or even a cashew “dressing”. The options are endless.

    watermelon currant popsicles

    No Comments

    Happy first day of summer! Today I’m sharing a super simple, four ingredient, guilt-free ice pop recipe with no added sugar (approved by my 20 month old)! I have a Zoku quick pop maker at home which I absolutely love! It makes ice pops in less than ten minutes! This isn’t a sponsored post, I just think this product is great! You can use any pop maker of course, but sometimes you just don’t want to wait five hours for an ice pop!

    Watermelon is a great source of antioxidant lycopene which has been shown to fight cancer. As I’ve mentioned before, berries (including raspberries) also have cancer-fighting antioxidants as well as loads of vitamin C. Currants and limes add even more vitamin C to the mix as well as lots of other nutrients! So you can feel really good about eating one (or two) of these!

    no-bake lemon goji bites

    Today I’m sharing another easy four ingredient snack (or dessert) with you, similar to the raw cacao bites I shared back in August. They are packed with healthy fats, biotin and vitamin E from the almonds and fiber and iron from the dates. Lemon and goji berries lend a nice dose of vitamin C to boost your immune system.

    no-bake cacao bites

    3 Comments

    Lazy chocolate lovers, this post is for you. These easy four-ingredient raw cookies are perfect to snack on or have for dessert. They are packed with healthy fats, biotin and vitamin E from the almonds, fiber and iron from the dates, and antioxidants, magnesium and iron from the cacao. This recipe calls for raw cacao powder because the beans are milled at low temperatures to protect the nutrients and flavor. If you tend to like super sweet desserts, you may want to add an extra date or two.
