Aloha peeps! I've been finding myself in so many conversations lately on just how much cheaper it is to buy junk food than it is to buy fruits, veggies and healthy snacks for ourselves and our cubs...and it's absolutely true which sucks. So I thought I'd compile a few of my cub's favourites that are so easy to make and not to taxing on a budget, that I even find my 7 year old up on the kitchen bench chucking the stuff into the nutra bullet herself lol.
Oh sweet easy nutrutious bliss balls! How I love thee! Seriously though, I love them. They're mostly raw, using nuts and seeds and sulphite free dried fruits and the best way to pack in some life enhancing goodness and energy without the nasty come down that we have after munching on something with refined sugar. None of that haze, that grumpiness and where if we were at home we'd have to go and curl up in bed for a while to get over it. Yuck. Or we'd eat some more junk and go again. Not sustainable lovelies.
I have clients who come to see me for over eating, junk food addictions, weight concerns and emotional rollercoastering and a lot of the time its their body crying out for nutrients. You could be craving nutrients for a number of reasons; dehydration, heavy metal toxicity, issues with absorption in the small intestine, not eating vitamin C (which aids in absorption especially needed when you're on a plant based diet).... honestly the list could go on and on, but the most common reason is just the fact that we're not eating enough raw, nutritious, chemical free foods that enhance our health with their vitamins, minerals and fats. Bam! Fact.
