Energize! No Bake Coconut Date Balls

Energize! No Bake Coconut Date Balls

coconut date balls I made a batch of coconut date balls recently for a friend. She was in need of some energy as she had recently had a baby. I wanted to give her something that was nutritious, easy to eat single  handedly when she was in need of a snack, and something that packs a bit of fuel is a bonus. Welcome, coconut date energy balls! Let’s go!

Raw Summer Squash Salad

Raw Summer Squash Salad

Raw Summer Squash Salad
I would like to share a simple, easy summer salad recipe with you today. This is a no cook recipe which makes it a snap to prepare when the weather is hot and humid outside. The fresh squash pairs nicely with the fresh herbs. There is a tiny kick from the red pepper flakes along with a bit of crunch from a sprinkle of sunflower seeds. Those pieces of parmesan on top add a  bit of decadence. A summer salad done right! Happy weekend, friends!

  • 3 - 4 summer squash, sliced into thin rounds
  • 2 - 3 T. olive oil

  • Handful of sunflower seeds
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Few shavings of good parmesan cheese

  2. Add the squash rounds to a medium sized bowl.
  3. Add to this the olive oil, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, sunflower seeds, and freshly chopped herbs and toss to combine. Grate a few shavings of parmesan cheese over the top.
