Description:
Perhaps you thought about raw food snacks but couldn’t come up with any ideas. Staying satisfied between meals is the secret to succeeding in eating raw. The convenience factor plays a major part in this so, be prepared by making snacks ahead of time and never leave home without packing something for the road. Be sure that you have some raw food snacks available while grocery shopping. Also, carry snacks in your car, your gym bag, your office drawer and in handy packets in the fridge. Here is a great snack to try out...

Goji berries grow on an evergreen shrub found in temperate and subtropical regions in China, Mongolia and in the Himalayas in Tibet. They are in the nightshade (Solonaceae) family. Goji berries are usually found dried. They are shriveled red berries that look like red raisins.


Ingredients:
1 ½ cup almonds (soaked and drained)
2 cups dates (soak for at least one hour)
½ cup sunflower seeds (soak for at least one hour)
½ cup goji berries
½ cup cacao nibs
½ cup almond butter (or Tahini)
1 cup raisins (soaked in 1 cup water for at least 1 hour)*
4 T. flax seeds in 2 T. water (for at least one hour)
3 tsp. carob powder (or cacao powder)
3 tsp. spirulina and Chlorella combined
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
Pinch of cardamom
Coconut to roll balls in



Directions:
Place almonds and dates in a food processor.
Process until small chunks. Add to a large bowl along with sunflower seeds, goji berries, cacao nibs, almond butter, raisins, raisin soak water*, flax seeds, carob powder, spirulina/chlorella powder, cinnamon, and cardamom. Mix well for a couple of minutes. Form into 2” balls, roll in coconut and chill for at least 30 minutes.

*I find that I don’t add all the raisin soak water – the dough gets too sticky for my liking. I just add half of the water and a little more if necessary to form a nice moist, unsticky ball. These balls can be dehydrated at 105 for 12 to 15 hours, but I just like them the way they are.

Wellness Tip
Restless Leg Syndrome
Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is a disorder that has been making big headlines lately. At rest, the sufferer's legs often feel uncomfortable, and he/she may have a very strong urge to move. If you think you may have RLS, see a health care provider; don't diagnose yourself. Once they have ruled out other conditions and diagnosed you with RLS, it can be managed. Techniques include taking a warm bath before bedtime, sleeping on your side with a pillow between your knees, and avoiding both alcohol and caffeine, especially before going to bed.

Description: Holiday Dinner all rolled into one.
There are about 32g of protein in a 4-oz. serving of turkey, making it a very good source of these essential amino acids. Just one serving of turkey provides 65 percent of your recommended daily intake of protein.
Protect Yourself From Cancer. A little-known health benefit of turkey is that it contains trace minerals thought to aid in cancer prevention. Turkey contains selenium, which is essential for the healthy function of the thyroid and immune system. Selenium also has an essential role to play in your antioxidant defense system, helping to eliminate cancer-friendly free radicals in the body. Get Your B Vitamins. Turkey is considered a good source of vitamins B3 and B6, rated because of the density of these vitamins in the meat. A serving of turkey meat has 36 percent of the daily allowance of B3 and 27 percent of your recommended intake of B6. Benefit From Less Saturated Fat. Saturated fat is necessary for biological functions, hormone production, padding for organs and energy. While saturated fat is necessary for a healthy body, most moderately-active people need to avoid overindulging. Turkey has under 12 percent of the recommended daily allowance of saturated fat per 4-oz. serving.
Choose Organic, Pasture-Based Turkey
Grass-fed turkey raised under organic conditions convey the most health benefits. Grass-fed turkeys offer higher nutrition and are superior to birds given antibiotics or raised without access to natural pasture. Consider looking for a local, grass-based poultry farm when shopping for organic turkeys.
