Energy Balls 

My friend and I decided to make these hoping that perhaps its ingredients list was enticing enough to make me hungry. Besides, since I’ve been feeling very low on energy too, we thought one energy ball might suffice for the times I totally can’t stand any other food.

Unfortunately, I’m starting on a new batch of medicines today and have some dietary restrictions to follow. Hence, I decided to pack these up and give them away to my friends and family instead.

Really simple ingredients and super easy to make.

Here’s what you need:

  1. Pitted dates (1/3 cup)
  2. Fresh raspberries (1/2 cup)
  3. Shredded coconut (3/4 cup)
  4. Any nut butter of your choice (1/4 cup)
  5. Raw almonds (1/2 cup)

All you have to do is put all these ingredients into a blender, one at a time, give it a nice final blend and that’s it – roll out tiny balls out of this blended mixture, coat them with more shredded coconut and refrigerate for about 30 minutes before serving.

On days when taking it one day at a time seems close to impossible, I look at the day ahead of me and go one hour at a time. Sometimes even a minute at a time. Most often than not, I get through the day and go to bed knowing I gave it my best shot. Like today
