Energy balls – new recipe

I can’t believe how good these taste the day after making them, so I have to quickly write down the details.

I used 3 Medjool dates, 3-4 tbsp oatflakes, 3 tbsp ground flaxseeds, 3 tsps coconut flakes, 2 tsp sesame seeds, 2-3 tsp raw cacao powder, 2 tsp cacao nibs and 2-3 tsp cashew butter. I also poured a little bit of maple syrup on top so it sticks. Blended on pulse so its a nice chunky  consistency.

Rolled into tiny balls in the freezer for 30 minutes.

I then heated up some vegan chocolate bars to dip the frozen balls in. After melting the bars I added 1 tsp of coconut oil.  Sprinkled them with coconut flakes, cacao nibs or powder. There was not enough chocolate to cover all, but rolling them in raw  cacao powder did the trick.

I did store them at room temperature and they are wonderful! I guess I won’t have to worry about including more flaxseeds now.

Calories!!!

So I am slowly starting to think about strategies to keep my weight. I had stopped counting calories and just ate whenever I wanted. However my weight keeps going down and I want to keep a bit of reserve. So I have to start thinking about making sure I get enough.

I only want to track a day and get a better feeling for it. So … it’s simple: calories burned I got to eat. Now looking at thw numbers I do start to regret walking around in town and going for a run  …

So I improved the lime, flaxseed yoghurt by putting in as many calories as I could find that would taste good.

The result is an impressive yummie 865 kcal super drink.

Do you have any calorie bomb secrets that I could try?

 

Vegan cheesecake drink

I am always excited to find a new taste and I get super excited if I find a sneaky way to integrate some superfoods into my planty life.

You can imagine how intrigued I was to learn about a dish that combined both from Tischcaylor! It combines lime, yoghurt and flaxseeds. Flaxseeds are amazing …

… and it works beautifully!

I used vegan yoghurt (therefore the consistency is more of a smoothie), 2 limes, sweetener and 4 tsps of flaxseeds.

Wonderful! I always was a cheesecake fan and this is a promising direction. I’ll definitely will experiment more with this.
