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
Size matters!
Don't forget about portion size when dining out. A 3.5 oz. hamburger made with extra lean ground beef, cooked to medium, contains about 250 calories, 16 grams of fat, 6 grams of saturated fat and 82 mg of cholesterol. Upgrade that to a half-pound of meat and you are looking at almost 600 calories, 36 grams of fat, 13 grams of saturated fat and 185 mg of cholesterol. What a whopping difference! Stick with smaller portions of meat. Three ounces is about the size of a deck of cards.

Cous Cous Salad with Tomatoes and Beans
Category: Salads
Description: Cous Cous - So good they had to name it twice. Couscous (pronounced Koose-Koose. Due to its quick preparation and health benefits, the popularity of this dish is quickly growing in other parts of the world as well. Including couscous in your diet provides several health benefits. A 1 cup serving of couscous provides 43 mcg of selenium, or 61% of the 70 mcg daily value. This is a trace mineral that the body needs in small quantities, acting as an antioxidant and protecting healthy cells from the mutating effects of toxins that change the DNA and structural composition, leading to disease and premature aging.
The potassium in couscous provides important functions, such as regulating blood pressure and the heartbeat. Potassium helps control fluid balance, an important factor in blood pressure regulation. It also assists with muscle contractions, and because the heart is a muscle, it requires potassium to prevent arrythmias, or irregularities of the heartbeat. A 1 cup serving of couscous provides 91mg of potassium, or 39% of the 3,500 mg the FDA recommends to get daily.
