  • 10 pitted organic dates
  • 1 cup abouts of soaked cashews
  • 2 tbs cocoa powder
  • 6-7 blackberries
  • 1 tsp raw local honey
  • 2 tbs coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup or more of shredded organic coconut
  • powdered sugar + shredded coconut to roll them in

All I did was combine all the ingredients and blend with my immersion blender. This would have been WAY easier if I had a food processor….hopefully one will be on its way too me for my birthday next week. Fingers crossed! I rubbed my hands with coconut oil so the mix wouldn’t stick as much to my hands and rolled them up into little balls. Then I rolled them in the powdered sugar and shredded coconut, popped into the freezer and enjoyed after dinner!

I’ve been recently watching a lot of raw foodies on YouTube and have been inspired to incorporate more raw foods into my diet. I’ve gotten to a point, as often happens, when I feel the need to tweak my diet. Lately I’ve just been feeling like poop. Blame it on springs allergies, or an imbalance from a accidental glutination from over a MONTH ago, but I’ve been suffering from headaches and general fatigue. So I decided to try a more raw/vegan diet. It’s certainly not realistic for me to go all out, nor do I think it’s all that healthful to limit myself EVEN more than I have to already. After packing my fridge with a ton of produce and juicing some I noticed that, although I’m not going full out raw/vegan there is little room in my tummy for any other foods. Which is great. The sheer amount of produce fills me up quickly and has been keeping me *ahem* regular. Tis nice. Feels good. Body is working clean and efficient only after a few days. Although my focus is incorporating raw/vegan the shift to mostly produce/plant based has so far alleviated my grossness and allergies, so here’s to health and trying new recipes!
