A healthy start 2021

Welcome 2021! I must say I have never been so happy to greet a new year!

As always, I will be launching the year with a healthy mantra. I have been promoting healthy January, otherwise known as Juice January, for the past 9 years. Can you believe it?

2015-12-01_14-57-40

It was all about juicing for most of those 9 years. We have come a long way baby!

This year will look a little different. I think that eating healthy is the way forward. I will be sharing some recipes and some new rituals I have introduced to my day. I will be sharing what I discovered in 2020. I started a yoga practice and meditation practice. I try to do yoga at least 5 times a week, there are so many choices online so find what’s best for you. However, I found a practice that is perfect for me, it is geared to every type of mood or physical issue. My son who lives in Austin, TX turned me on to Yoga with Adriene  I find her not intimidating which is great, her poses are doable and help me physically as well as mentally.

Additionally, trying new recipes was part of my daily routine. I will be sharing a few juice recipes, but mainly I will be talking about how to introduce calm and patience into your life.

2020 taught me to be much more mindful and to be kinder. I am hoping that the challenges we have been through in 2020 allow us to step back and see how change can be a better way forward. I hope you all tune in to 2021. Wishing a happy healthy 2021 to everyone!  Love you guys.

Raw Food Homemade Energy Bites

Raw-Super-Food-Energy-Bars-with-Cacao-1200x8001

I don’t know about you, but store bought energy bars sort of gross me out. When I need a little something sweet and satisfying these will do the trick. I have amended a recipe from one green planet.

These bars are super good; let me know what you think. I usually store a bunch in the freezer and take them along to snack on during the day.

*Note these are more delicate than store bought energy bars, so place them in a glass sealed container rather than a plastic bag, they will hold and travel better.

Raw Super Food Energy Bars with Dark Chocolate
(note: I have amended the original recipe)
makes 20- 2 inch diameter bites

You will need:

– 1 cup walnuts
– 1/3 cup chia seeds ( *optional they are really rough on the teeth)
– 1/3 cup ground flax seeds
– 3 tablespoons hemp seeds
– 1/4 cup cacao nibs or dark chocolate chips
– 1/4 cup coconut flakes
– 3/4 cup pumpkin seeds
– 1 cup raisins
– 2 cup dates ( remove the pit)
– 1-2 tablespoons melted coconut oil, as needed
– 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips melted

To prepare:

  1. Throw the dry ingredients in your food processor, then add the dates and raisins and process until everything it starts to stick together for at least 5 minutes it needs to resemble a paste. If it’s too dry, add more dates or coconut oil.
  2.  Mix in with your hands, forming rounds balls (note you really need to press together the mix) take the balls and press into a small muffin tin.
  3. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave for 1 minute, whisk to smooth
  4.  Carefully remove the energy bar cups from the tin and top off with melted chocolate  let them cool in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
