Ok guys. Put your hands up if you’re feeling;
- Full of a cold
- Run down
- All of the above
If you don’t have your hand up, you’re free to leave. If you do, keep scrolling (you can put your hand down now too).
When it comes to winter, it’s so easy to forget to look after our bodies properly, leading to us feeling all sorts of rubbish and making our immune systems more susceptible to all sorts of nasties.
So we gotta look after ourselves. Which means we have to eat properly. You wouldn’t expect your car to run off water or coffee would you? It needs petrol (or diesel, don’t get them mixed up trust me it’s very expensive) and our bodies are much the same. They need the right fuel; a good balance of carbs, protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals.
These lemon and ginger balls are a fab snack if you’re trying to eat healthily and look after yourself. They’ve got lots of fibre, healthy fats and protein, as well as the amazing anti inflammatory benefits of ginger plus it helps settling tummies (great for morning sickness) and it’s also great for your skin.
So if you’re feeling a bit under the weather (and even if you’re not) swap your lemon and ginger tea for one of these balls – you won’t regret it!
- 1 cup cashews
- 1/2cup dessicated coconut, plus more for rolling
- 1 cup dates
- 1 tbsp grated ginger
- Zest + juice of 1/4 a lemon
Simply blend the ingredients in a food processor for a couple of minutes until they form a sticky mixture. Roll into balls and roll in extra coconut if you want, then store in the fridge or freezer.
Love, Mrs H xx
