rawbarsWho doesn’t love to snack?

It’s not about who loves to snack but more about “is the snack good for you”.

Everyone loves to snack so wouldn’t it be great if you could find snacks that you get excited about eating, look tempting, are satisfying and healthy? That would seem like a tough call but with all the fresh ingredients that are readily available these days returning to the kitchen and creating your own snacks using raw foods is the way to go and it’s easier than ever.

Bottom line is this: home cooking is the best thing you can do for your health. You’re in control from the moment you buy your products to knowing exactly what how they are prepared.

We need to eat foods the way nature intended without the additives: the culprits that have been linked to degenerative diseases and weight gain. You know the ones I am talking about…”bad carbs”, white flour and white sugar and “bad fats”, saturated and trans fats along with a mess of unhealthy chemicals and preservatives.

Eating raw foods eliminates these villains, and as a bonus, you can also eliminate the ancient tradition of baking itself with a totally new way to create traditional tasting cookies, snacks, treats and ice cream as well as candies that taste as good as or better than the original versions.

You’ll start by using unprocessed ingredients, nuts, seeds, coconut, fresh and dried fruits and some vegetables that are combined using only a food processor and turn into the most delicious snacks, treats and desserts.

Quick and easy. For the most part, these desserts are made with only 4-6 ingredients that are chucked into a food processor and whizzed up then turned out into a dish and cut into bars or molded by hand into nutritious balls and snacks to die for.

You’ll not only enjoy exciting nutrient rich desserts and snacks, you’ll enjoy ultimate health while maintaining healthy weight goals. How do you think your female friends will react to that?

It’s definitely a win-win.

Here’s a recipe that will have everyone dipping in for seconds…

RAW BARS and TRUFFLES

Use a ratio of 1:1 for nuts: dates (or other dried fruits. Blend the nuts in the food processor first and then add the other ingredients. Blend until very fine then add just a dash of water (if needed) so the mixture “balls up”. Roll into balls or press and cut into squares and coat with grated coconut, crushed nuts, or cocoa powder. Serve immediately or chill.

Variations:

Apple Pie: Walnuts, dried apples, raisins, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger

Cardamom Delight: Almonds, dates, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger

Peanuts and Chocolate: Peanuts, dates, raisins, oats, cocoa powder, honey

Raw fruits and veggies deliver far greater levels of nutrients to your body than cooked food. Why pay for precious nutrients if they don’t make it to your body where they can work their magic?

I promise once you try these creative snacks and treats you’ll never miss the gluten and white sugar and flour that previously laced your snacks.
