casual saturday.

After a recent move I have been finishing up some tasks, I wanted to post before going to bed or else i would have to do a double-day tomorrow – not sure how I feel about that yet.  This evening we made it to the store by 8pm… thrilling to be shopping at Wegman’s for your saturday night activity.  My husband made Mahi-Mahi with lemon juice and sage with a side of potato hash and a simple salad (home-made mustard vinaigrette a top).

I followed with an energy ball creation – I have been seeing many posts for these little treats.  I thought I would give it a try – I was pleasantly delighted with the end product.  I threw some things together, bare with me while I perfect the exact amounts to share with you – all I have right now are approximates.  Recipe below —

Raw Sugar Cookie Dough Bites

1 heaping cup of dates

1 cup walnuts

1/2 cup shredded reduced fat unsweetened coconut

2 tbsp chia seeds

2 tbsp flax seeds

2 tbsp coconut oil

2 tbsp honey

1 tbsp maca powder

1 tbsp vanilla extract

*depending on the consistency you can add more dates if your mixture is not sticking together enough or some coconut oil and honey.  After blending all ingredients in a food processor roll dough into mini balls and place in the refrigerator until they move from a soft texture to a firmer one.  When you bite into these treats you will swear you are eating raw sugar cookie dough!

Seriously is time for bed, hopefully.  I will dream about:

peace. love. paleo.
