What Are Superfoods?

What are superfoods? And what makes superfoods so super? It’s a question that I get a lot – and so I went to find some answers.

Check out the video below. And scroll down for the delicious Goji Glow Energy Bite recipe.

Recipe: Goji-Glow Energy Bites

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almonds, soaked
  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds, soaked
  • 1/3 cup dates, figs, raisins or apricots
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon spirulina
  • 1/2 cup goji berries
  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/2 cup cacao nibs

Directions:

Soak almonds and pumpkin seeds for at least 6 hours. Drain and rinse well. Place them in a food processor and process until finely ground. Add dates, cacao and spirulina – and then process into a thick, sticky dough. Add goji berries and pulse some more. Remove from food processor and place into a large bowl. Use your hands to mush and mingle the hemp seeds and cacao nibs. Roll into 1/2 – 1 inch bites. Dust them in some fun stuff like hemp seeds, sesame seeds, goji powder, camu powder, coconut flakes, ground nuts, cacao powder or cacao nibs. Chill for an hour. Freeze any extras.
