HIGH-PROTEIN GRAB & GO SNACK
Here’s a sweet way to sneak in some extra veggies. These energy bites are packed with deliciousness and nutrition – without any cooking!
CARROTS: These party platter favourites are one of the most nutritious veggies out there as they are loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
They help fight cancer, lower your blood pressure, keep your immune system strong, help your bones stay healthy, AND help protect your vision.
If you eat more than 10 medium-sized carrots a day for a few weeks, you’ll build up too much beta-carotene in your body and develop a condition called carotenemia… and your skin will start to turn orange!
Carrots are great in soups, salads, stews, stir-fries, and casseroles. You can eat them raw, steamed, roasted, baked, and even juiced.

Place the dates, oats, walnuts, and chia seeds in a food processor. Pulse until they are combined. Add the remaining ingredients and process until everything is chopped and the texture is almost smooth.
Please note; if you’re using the protein powder, you might need to add water to get the proper consistency – just a couple of drops at a time!
Create the balls by scooping out 1 tablespoon at a time and rolling until a ball is formed.
These will keep covered in an airtight container in the fridge for about a week, or in the freezer for 3-4 months.
