I don’t have access to Planet Organic nor Whole Foods up here, so not only this website offers a great deal of health foods, but you really can’t beat the prices either. I tend to order things to come to my office, and voilà! It’s super easy and you get most things you need in a vegan diet.
2. Raw nuts
To make these energy balls, you’ll need:
1 cup of pitted medjool dates (8-10 dates)
1/2 cup pistachios
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 Tbsp shredded coconut
1 Tbsp almond flour (optional)
Start by pulsing the dates in a food processor, until a big ball forms. Add the rest of the ingredients, and pulse until a thick paste forms. Then make little balls with your hands. This recipe will yield 7 energy balls, which you can keep in your freezer until you need one! Yummy stuff.
In the jar, put the dry ingredients first: the oats, cinnamon and salt. Do not put too much salt. But I do recommend you put a dash of it, as it will make the sweetness stand out even more. More sweet and salt recipes coming soon!
As for myself, I went for the pumpkin with wasabi and avocado dressing, with cashews and spicy salad. It was delicious!
Here is a sneak peak of what I was wearing (forgive my tired eyes, I had woken up at 6 and travelled from Belgium, had class and did many other things haha)
