Need a quick, healthy snack while you are on the go? Chocolate Bliss Balls are one of my go-to snacks for quick energy and a delicious treat.
These raw protein balls are fantastic to eat right before a workout or just a healthy snack. They taste delicious and perfect to cure any chocolate craving.
The coconut provides the medium-chain-fatty-acid (MCFA) that are transported directly to the liver and burned for energy. What that means is the MCFA are burned and used for energy instead of stored on our hips and thighs.
The pumpkin seeds are rich in vitamin E (an antioxidant) and are one of the most alkaline forming seeds. Alkaline foods help the body stay healthy by fighting acidity, which could possibly lead to sickness.
Try replacing your processed food snacks with these Bliss Balls and get the amazing benefits of whole foods.
