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.

Eye Protection During Sports
Do you participate in sports that involve a moving ball, swinging stick, or physical contact? These include sports like hockey, tennis, racquetball or baseball. According to the International Federation of Sports Medicine, the use of protective gear significantly reduces eye injuries in sports. Be safe, not sorry. Buy and use sport appropriate goggles or a facemask. Make eye protection a priority while you play.
