Returning from holidays, consuming copious amounts of carbs, sugary desserts, you name it, I had some serious detoxing to do!
Over 48 hours, the excess weight of 2.2kgs dropped from the scales.
It sounds like I have been starving, or living on lemon juice, or taking pills, right? Wrong.
I don’t believe in any of the fad detoxes, and when I use the word detox, I am referring to stripping my diet back to basics, and only eating and enjoying whole foods.
It is day 3 and I needed a bit of a hit. I have been struggling with jet lag, and trying not to eat excess fruit or sweet ‘alternatives’ but to get through the rest of the day, I knew I needed something that was still nutrient dense, but would help with those sugary cravings.
So I bring you my bliss ball flavour of the week!
- 1 cup raw almonds
- 1 cup raw hazelnuts
- 1/2 cup coconut
- 16 medjool dates, pitted
- 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds (super nutrient dense and high in protein)
- 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
Combine all ingredients in a high powered blender until coming together. Either rolls in coconut and additional hemp seeds or leave as is. Store in refrigerator for up to a week, or freezer for 2-3 weeks.
Makes 19 (depending on size).
