ah...we are moving into my favorite times of the year! i personally fare so much better when the weather is warm, the sun is out and little clothing is required! spring babies like myself take advantage of this season as it's fantastic time to clean out the closets, evaluate the progress of the year thus far and freshen up lifestyles.
seasonal change is also good time to freshen up your nutrition and take advantage of the changing weather. the warmer it gets, the less we usually need to eat!
here's a simple recipe for energy bites that provide just the right amount of pleasure and sustenance in your spring snacks. make a batch, pack two for when you need a little boost and store the rest in the fridge. a couple of these little drops of sunshine will certainly ensure a fresh outlook on your day!
4 pitted dates
1 cup walnuts
1/2 macadamia nuts
1/2 shredded carrot
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
pulverize the dates in a food processor until a paste forms (about 40 seconds). add the nuts and blend until finely chopped. while the blade is still running, add the coconut oil and stop as soon as its blended. take the batter into another bowl and mix in carrots and 1/2 of the coconut. form into small gumball sizes and then roll in the rest of the coconut. chill to harden.
