Yum, bliss balls, easy to make and very easy to eat! Once made enjoy them with a peppermint tea.
Here are some benefits of 3 of the ingredients;
Almonds are a source of Vitamin E, Copper, Magnesium and high quality protein, they also contain high levels of healthy unsaturated fatty acids in addition to a lot of bioactive molecules (such as fiber, vitamins, other minerals, and antioxidants) which can help prevent cardiovascular heart diseases.
Raw Cacao Powder is organic chocolate before all the good stuff has been processed out. With 16 times more antioxidants than blueberries, it has never been easier or tastier getting nutrients in your diet. It is great for improved mood and energy levels.
And Rice malt syrup is a great alternative to sugars like white sugar, brown sugar, and honey. Sugars are the fuel of life and sweeteners are something everyone instinctively desires. How we satisfy this craving for sweets can have a significant effect on our health and happiness. The quick energy lift from refined white sugar, brown sugar, fructose, honey, and maple syrup can cause rapid mood shifts on a daily basis. If you are eating a healing diet or if you simply want to enjoy the highest quality sweeteners available, choose naturally malted whole grain sweeteners such as rice or brown rice malt syrup.
