Hello hello!

How have you all been? I hope you’ve all been doing absolutely amazing because everyone deserves to feel that way even when things seem to be looking bleak.

I try my best to stay positive but my health has been declining lately and it’s been frustrating not getting any answers to my dozens of questions. So I’ve taken my health into my own hands and have been making a conscious effort to fill myself with more nutrients.

When I was living back home it was easy for me to get in all my nutrients because there was a bigger fridge and pantry so there was more to choose from. But now that I’ve been living on my own with a tiny fridge, it’s hard to get through everything quick enough to have a variety in my diet.

Often times, I feel as though I have to choose between purchasing one colour of the rainbow or another when it comes to veggies because I literally don’t have anywhere to store it all. So in hopes to get in all my nutrients, I decided to get myself some superfood powder so I can ensure I’m getting my daily dose of micronutrients.

As much as I would love to say that I love the taste of superfood powder, it tends to be a bit chalky and grassy if you don’t put it in a smoothie of sorts. But being that I’m moving back across the country in a couple of months, I figured that buying a blender probably isn’t the smartest thing so I decided that I had to think of another way to intake the powder.

And thus, these superfood bliss balls were born. If you’ve never had bliss balls before you’re missing out because they’re absolutely amazing. They’re easy to make and you can make dozens of variations of them. Plus they make a great on-the-go snack or pre-workout!

I actually ended up loving these so much that I made 3 batches in one go! I understand that may sound like a little overboard but there’s just so many ways to eat these fellas’ that it never got boring.

Sometimes I would freeze them to have as a frozen treat, others times I’d mix in protein powder so I could have them as a quick post-workout and last but not least, I ADORE breaking them up to have as “rawnola”

Now before I go on to sharing this simple recipe I want to introduce you all to a wonderful new blogger named Susan over at cookthestone. Like me, she created her blog out of her passion for both cooking and blogging. Her blog is full of nutritious recipes accompanied with useful information about each of the ingredients featured. I’ve learned so much from her blog and she recently wrote a post on super foods too! Being that mine is more of a sweet superfood rendition, her post has a great infographic about all the savory superfoods you can add into your daily diet to nourish your body. So please stop by her blog too and show her some support!
