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.

|Don't Sweat It|
|Exercisers of all ages are at increased risk for dehydration during these hot summer months. Dehydration can diminish energy, impair performance, and have serious health consequences. Even a 2% loss of body weight through sweat--3 pounds for a 150-pound exerciser--can mean trouble. Maintaining proper hydration is important for all fitness enthusiasts. Weighing yourself, without clothing, just before and after you exercise is one way to measure fluid losses. Each pound lost is equivalent to about 15 ounces of dehydration.|

|The “Lucky You” Factor|
|The “lucky you” factor can be explained by understanding synchronicity. Synchronicity and co-creation are part of the systems of benevolent design that are available to all of us. Synchronicity guides you to meet the people you are supposed to meet, and have the situations unfold that you potentially could have. The result is that your life moves faster, and there is more balance because of it.|
|Butternut Squash Soup with Fresh Cilantro|
Description: Butternut Squash is a member of the Curcurbita moschata family that also includes ponca, pumpkin, waltham, and calabaza. The orange-fleshed winter squash delivers a flavorful dense flesh. The butternut squash provides the most value of any squash, dollar for dollar because it is thin-skinned, has a small cavity with fewer seeds and less waste than with most other squashes. The butternut squash benefits from baking which develops and deepens the flavor.
