Superfood snacks for the go go yogi
a nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being.
One of our favourite tools in the kitchen has to be the food processor, that instrument that allows you to throw it all in, mash it up, keep it raw and get creative. Superfood energy balls are one of the easiest, tastiest and healthiest snacks out there - the more you add to them the better for you they become!
We had a gander through our cupboards and found the following to create these raw, vegan (and mostly organic!) treats:
- cacao nibs
- shredded coconut
- gogi berries
- leftover trail mix
- pitted dates
- pumpkin seed butter
- raw pumpkin seeds
- hemp hearts
- ground chia seeds
The glory of keeping your cupboards stocked with some of these suggestions is that not only do they mash up beautifully into little energy ball snacks, they double as smoothie additions, salad toppings or an extra flare to your stir fry! Here' some other suggestions for a superfood-stocked kitchen. Keep in mind, some work better in energy balls than others! We're just trying to get the wheels turning.
- dried blueberries, cranberries or apricots
- maca powder
- flax seeds
- black garlic
- nutritional yeast
Keep this list on hand as you cruise through the grocery store, adding a few of these nutrient-packed options to your cart each time you shop. Growing the collection is fun and really good for you. Win win!
