Easter can be a challenging time for people who try and avoid sugar and chocolate, so I thought I would share my zesty bliss balls with you. They are really easy to make and packed full of nutrients, so what’s not to like about them?!
Whilst they are devoid of refined sugar, it’s important to remember that dates are still really high in natural sugar, so make sure to only enjoy one at a time (note to self!).
Dates are a good source of fibre, potassium, magnesium, vitamin B6, iron and calcium. I love the combination of dates with Brazil nuts and what’s better still is that Brazil nuts are one of the best sources of selenium that you can find. Selenium supports immune function whilst offering antioxidant properties. Selenium is also an essential mineral needed to make thyroid hormones. I always try and enjoy 3-4 Brazil nuts a day to ensure that I get my daily dose of selenium.
Wishing you all a Happy Easter.
