Chocolate Coconut Raw Food Energy Bars. ( an alternate to Brownies )
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.
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.
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.

|Adequate Water Intake |
|Adequate water intake prevents your body from overheating. It is also required for normal metabolism. By the time you feel thirsty, you may already have lost 2% or more of your body weight in fluid. At 4%, loss of both strength and endurance can occur. A recent Institute of Medicine report stated that women on average would need just over 11, eight ounce cups of water per day (from both liquids and watery foods), men just under 16 cups. If you are very active or live in a hot or dry climate, you likely need more.|

|Kolach - (Ukrainian Braided Ring-Shaped Bread)|
|Category: Holiday Recipes|
Description: The word for "circle" in Ukrainian is "kolo". This particular bread, sometimes called "kalach" as well, is served at a traditional Ukrainian Christmas Eve Supper or in December. The circle, an ancient symbol of eternity, has also sometimes come to mean a continuity or general well being of the family. This recipe is a simpler version but the end result is both delicious and appealing to the eye.
