Ready to make your own wellness a top priority this year? The CCN Difference means health over weight-loss and mindfulness over counting calories.
As always, we will educate! We are talking about how to balance macros, how to self-manage your meal plan, and how to fuel your body intelligently so that you can shine forth as the best YOU.
Many of our unhealthy habits stem from a mental or emotional place that we need to become aware of and heal from. Join Cara in weekly mindfulness exercises during the Fresh Start Healthy Heart Challenge to get to the heart of whatever issues are holding you back from your goals.
Here's a brand new recipe from the challenge - so many great new recipes and meal ideas coming your way!
Lemon Coconut Energy Bites
Makes 28-30 bites
1 cup dates, pitted
1 cup rolled oats
½ cup cashews
2 Tablespoons coconut oil or cashew butter
Juice and zest of 1 large lemon
¼ cup hemp seeds
2 Tablespoons white chia seeds (black is ok too!)
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, plus extra for rolling
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
½ teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse till ingredients are evenly chopped and starting to stick together forming a ball. Transfer to the fridge and chill for 30 minutes. Using a small cookie scoop (or about 1 Tablespoon measuring spoon), portion into balls and roll together with your hands. Pour extra shredded coconut into a small bowl and roll the balls in coconut, coating lightly. Store in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container until ready to eat. Serving size is 2-3 energy bites.
