Foodie Friday: Raw Cashew Energy Bites!

These bites are EVERYTHING!!!!! So, I have really been cooking up some recipes every single week. Not only am I doing plant-based meal prepping for multiple customers, but I am experimenting in the kitchen with some delicious recipes. To my surprise, my raw cashew energy bits have become a HIT!!! Why I am surprised? Well the most closed minded people actually love them, which is a shock.

Anywho, these bites are packed with energy and deliciousness. It’s super quick and easy to make and has great benefits.

Some of the benefit of the bites:

The dates help the maintain weight, alternative sweetener, and energy booster.

Chia seeds help boost energy and stamina, aid in weight loss, cleanse the colon, reduce inflammation, and strengthen the immune system.
What You Need:

Raw un-roasted, unsalted cashews

4-5 dates

3/4 cup if shredded coconut (unsweetened if possible, but not a deal breaker)

A little less than 1/4 coconut sugar

Pinch of sea salt (to enhance the flavor)

Chia Seeds

What You Do:

In a food processor, put all the ingredients and blend until it creates a dough.

Once you have a dough scoop some of the mixture in your hand and sprinkle a few chia seeds and roll until you get a ball.

Continue doing this until you’ve used all the dough.

Dress with extra shredded coconut or leave bare. Enjoy now or put in the refrigerator to enjoy later.

It’s the perfect snack that keeps you happy and full! Enjoy alone or with a cup of coffee (minus all the creamer and sugar).

Until then, STAY HUSTLIN’!!! Oh and catch me on IG LIVE (@mylifebeingelle and @junkfoodbyelle) every Sunday 9pmEST/6pmPST where I cook and share recipes, and talk about different topics pertaining to living a healthier lifestyle through food, exercise, and self-care.

Foodie Friday: Summer Fruit

Elle here!!! So, summer is quickly approaching and I’m excited, but I’m not excited. Why? Well it gets hot and humid here in NC so that’s a drag. On the bright side of things, I’ll be eating lots and lots of fruit and you should too. Not only is fruit filling, but its full of great benefits and its a food that keeps you cool during the hot summer months.

Some of my go-to fruits are dragon fruit (pitaya), blueberries, raspberries, kiwi, strawberries, mango, jackfruit, and avocado. If you haven’t tried dragon fruit, its a MUST!!! Dragon fruit is packed with vitamin C, which helps keep our immune system strong. Other benefits includes, aiding in digestion, cardiovascular health, and anti-aging. So this summer give your inner body a glowing boost.
Enjoy fruit alone or mixed!
