Superhero Balls

 

Do you know what would happen if you took some of the most powerful, nutrient dense, amazing foods available to us on this planet and rolled them all together? You get superhero-worthy balls.

In addition to using Spirulina to turn your bread green and Hulk-like, an easy peezy solution is to roll all this goodness together into spoonfuls of power-packed nutrition. Icing on the cake, or cacao bean on the hemp seed as the case may be, is that they are the best tasting experiment I have come up with in ages. And they're raw raw raw.

This uncooked raw food assemblage was inspired by a recipe in David Wolfe's book, appropriately named Superfoods. You definitely don't have to stick to my recipe as I definitely didn't stick to his. Use the foods you have around.

My balls are slightly nutty tasting thanks to the hemp, a little sweet with the honey and goji, rich and smooth with the ground cacao and unrefined, cold pressed coconut oil, a touch salty with the sea salt and have a crispy, crunchiness with the chia seeds. The vanilla bean is simply gold and the spirulina, well, that carries the energy power of pure sunlight. Seriously, if a superhero had balls for a snack, these would be them...

If I were a superhero, I would be Bowel Betty, keeping people happy and healthy through regularity. Wait a second, I am very busy keeping people happy and healthy through regularity. Just call me Bowel Betty.

Now, as you whip up your Superhero Balls,  finish this sentence: If I were a superhero, I would be________________, and my super-power would be___________________. (And post below if you like)

    I've been visiting the site for a couple of weeks, and just love it! Your insight and refreshing attitude inspires me. On to questions. 1) How long do they go in the freezer? 2)How do you store them? 3)How long do they last? 4) How many can/should (never ask could) you eat at one time? I'm portionally-challenged, so like to know how many is considered a single portion. Thanks again.
  3. Loren: 1) How long do they go in the freezer? Min. 15 minutes. 2)How do you store them? Right now mine are in a glass food storage container in the freezer 3)How long do they last? Frozen? Indefinitely 4) How many can/should (never ask could) you eat at one time? One. They are rich and powerful. One is all you need.

I also have a blog and am really looking to alter around the theme, however am scared to death to mess with it for fear of the search engines punishing me. I am very new to all of this ...so i am just not positive exactly how to try to to it all yet. I'll just keep working on it one day at a time Thanks for any help you can offer here
