Happy Valentine’s Day! I woke up early this morning to make a special treat for this evening for my sweetheart and special friends. I had a little taste on the spoon to make sure they tasted ok : and decided to share the recipe with my blog readers…
The real beauty of this recipe is the raw, organic ingredients used and more importantly, the health benefits from them! As a fan of superfoods, these yummy organic ‘Bliss Balls’ go well either on their own, or with a nice cup of organic coffee, or a toast of champagne for a really special occasion like Valentine’s Day…..
1 cup raw, organic cashews (or other nuts if preferred)
5-6 pitted fresh dates
2 tbsp raw cacao powder
1 tsp natural organic vanilla essence
1 tbsp agave syrup
1 tsp raw organic coconut oil
dessicated coconut (to coat bliss balls, if desired)
Blend all ingredients, except coconut, together in a food processor.
Roll into balls, coat with coconut if desired. Store in a container, in the refrigerator.
Bliss….healthy and natural……

When you have a cut or bruise on your leg, it usually heals itself quickly - How Amazing!
However, if we are not careful, it can fester, become infected and give us pain.
Pain is our body’s signal to us that it needs help. With a cut leg the course of action is obvious. But what about tiny, invisible wounds that we can’t see, which are happening inside our bodies all the time?
What do YOU do when a subtle message of pain appears?
Too many of us reach for the nearest chemical ‘pain reliever’, when we could be doing something better to support our health and healing. Sadly, because most people do not trust or know how to embrace “Self-Care”, there are internal wounds festering and contributing to the ill health of millions of people around the world. And the vast majority of them will become customers (and victims) of the pharmaceutical industry.
Our bodies are being damaged inside, invisible and mercilessly, by toxic chemical reactions. Toxic chemical additives and hazardous wastes in our air, water and food supplies will continue to pervade our living and working environments. These toxins are returning to us in everything we eat, drink and breathe. Thankfully much of the internal damage they do heals automatically, like that cut on our leg. However when our body is not adequately nourished it can’t neutralise and expel these poisons fast enough. They build up in our body, and so does the invisible damage they do. Toxic build up can severely damage our immune system and lead to disease.
A body that is toxic is like a cut with dirt in it. It is contaminated and may not heal properly. It needs to be cleaned and given the nutrients it needs to detoxify and rebuild and heal itself. Many of us have already recognised the fact of life and have altered our lifestyles to avoid as many chemicals as possible. Some of us have also recognised this fact of health and are being more careful about nutrients that can help our body detox – and rebuild our immune system.
