Description:
Perhaps you thought about raw food snacks but couldn’t come up with any ideas. Staying satisfied between meals is the secret to succeeding in eating raw. The convenience factor plays a major part in this so, be prepared by making snacks ahead of time and never leave home without packing something for the road. Be sure that you have some raw food snacks available while grocery shopping. Also, carry snacks in your car, your gym bag, your office drawer and in handy packets in the fridge. Here is a great snack to try out...

Goji berries grow on an evergreen shrub found in temperate and subtropical regions in China, Mongolia and in the Himalayas in Tibet. They are in the nightshade (Solonaceae) family. Goji berries are usually found dried. They are shriveled red berries that look like red raisins.


Ingredients:
1 ½ cup almonds (soaked and drained)
2 cups dates (soak for at least one hour)
½ cup sunflower seeds (soak for at least one hour)
½ cup goji berries
½ cup cacao nibs
½ cup almond butter (or Tahini)
1 cup raisins (soaked in 1 cup water for at least 1 hour)*
4 T. flax seeds in 2 T. water (for at least one hour)
3 tsp. carob powder (or cacao powder)
3 tsp. spirulina and Chlorella combined
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
Pinch of cardamom
Coconut to roll balls in



Directions:
Place almonds and dates in a food processor.
Process until small chunks. Add to a large bowl along with sunflower seeds, goji berries, cacao nibs, almond butter, raisins, raisin soak water*, flax seeds, carob powder, spirulina/chlorella powder, cinnamon, and cardamom. Mix well for a couple of minutes. Form into 2” balls, roll in coconut and chill for at least 30 minutes.

*I find that I don’t add all the raisin soak water – the dough gets too sticky for my liking. I just add half of the water and a little more if necessary to form a nice moist, unsticky ball. These balls can be dehydrated at 105 for 12 to 15 hours, but I just like them the way they are.

Wellness Tip
Fiber
There are two main types of fiber, soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber has been associated with lowering blood cholesterol. It is found in oat bran, beans and other legumes, psyllium, prunes, apples and pears. Insoluble fiber, found in fruits, vegetables, dried beans, wheat bran, seeds, popcorn, brown rice, and whole grain products, is typical of the course material we think of as roughage. It helps keep the bowels regular and may also help prevent certain types of cancers. Both types of fiber, when taken with plenty of water, aid in weight control and the regulation of blood pressure.

World is Running out of Antibiotics?
The World Health Organization has released a new report examining the lack of new antibiotics in development to deal with the increasing threat of antimicrobial resistance. At this time, the medicines being developed are modified versions of existing classes of antibiotics and only serve as short-term solutions to antibiotic resistance. Of the 51 new drugs in development, only eight are innovative. In fact, according to the WHO, no major antibiotics have been developed over the last 30 years. There are 13 classes of priority pathogens that are becoming increasingly resistant to available antibiotics. Some of these pathogens cause common infections like...
