Print Friendly 

Description:
This is a perfect energy bar full of nuts, berries and seeds that will curb your hunger and look after any cravings. As it is full of nuts and seeds it is a great protein source and would be a good snack.

Ingredients:
2 C pitted Dates
1/3 C agave nectar
½ C cashew butter
1 C ground almonds
½ C pumpkin seeds
½ C Hemp seeds
¼ C chia seeds
¼ C sesame seeds
½ dried Goji berries
½ C coconut
2/3 C organic chocolate chips or cocoa nibs.


Directions:
Mix all ingredients well in food processor. Spoon into 8 x 8 pan. ( I used a 9 x 13”) Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before cutting. Cut very small as they are filling, and individually wrap.
It filled the food processor, so I ended up processing it in two batches. I added a bit of cocoa powder as well, used hazelnut butter instead of cashew, and added nearly ¼ C warm water to help it mix. Maybe try adding some cayenne? Yum. Could be rolled into balls.

Wellness Tip
Sport drinks?
You just finished an hour-long aerobic workout. You are sweaty, tired, and need an energy lift. Should you grab a sports drink to replace the nutrients lost during your workout? Often the answer is no. For workouts lasting less than 60-90 minutes, simple fluid replacement is usually your goal. However, it's important to drink moderate amounts of water before, during, and after exercise. Then choose nutrient-rich, post-workout meals to keep your body in balance.

Healthy Broccoli Salad
Category: Salads
Description: Cruciferous vegetables are known to have protective effects against cancer. DIM is destroyed by cooking – so getting some raw seems like a good idea. Diindolylmethane (DIM) is being studied at UC Berkeley for its role in cancer therapy. DIM is found in raw cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, cauliflower and kale. There is the popular broccoli salad with mayonnaise, sugar and bacon, but I wanted a healthier version. Here is what I came up with. I love it when healthy habits taste so great.
