Have you ever had a thought storm? I have. And it, innocently, often leads to choosing high fat, salty or high sweet food to relieve the stress we feel.
Today’s video is all about how to become free of thought storms and as a result be led to healthier choices.
So just let the thoughts flow on by. No need to grab onto those thoughts and add energy to them. And from a relaxed state, we naturally make healthier food choices. It’s our nature.
Today Bill decided to make healthy bars and truffle snacks. They are simple, no cooking, and so delicious. We tried all the top selling snack bars in the health food store and decided we could make one more delicious, healthier and less costly than anything we tried.
Enjoy this easy and delicious recipe.
To Your Amazing Health,
Connie and Bill
Healthy Bars & Truffle Recipe
2 tablespoons chia seeds (soaked in 1/4 cup water for 15 minutes)
1/2 cup raw almonds
4 large Medjool dates pitted
4 tablespoons cacao powder
1 cup cooked whole grain (brown rice with oat groats is our favorite)
1/4 teaspoon stevia
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
If your dates are hard or dry, soak them in boiling water for a few minutes to soften, then drain the water from the dates. Process the nuts and dates in a food processor until crumbly. Add cacao powder, the cooked grain, sea salt and soaked chia, and process until mixture forms a stiff ball.
For bars, spread ball out onto a piece of wax paper and form into a square about 1/2″ thick with the back of a spoon . Cut into the size bars you wish and wrap in cling wrap.
For truffles, simply roll mixture into balls and press into finely chopped almonds.
Store in refrigerator.
