Raw Prune Energy Balls
These raw prune energy balls with pecans, goji berries, cacao, cinnamon, and cayenne are super delicious and really easy to throw together in your food processor for a quick dessert or brilliant mid-afternoon snack.
Most energy balls contain dates. But prunes have a lower GI, and so are better for weight loss. Plus, adding the pecans decreases the insulin spike from the sugar hit.
These raw prune energy balls come from Lola Berry, nutritionist and author of The 20/20 Diet.
Lola Berry is one of Australia’s go-to nutritionists. She makes healthy living fun, and will stop at nothing to get the world excited about whole foods. She convinced a TV host to swallow raw wasabi on live TV; she’s dived into dumpsters on the streets of New York and eaten from one; she’s run madly in search of water after daring to eat one of the world’s hottest chillies; and has handed out black-eyed peas to celebs at a ‘Black Eyed Peas’ red carpet event.
The 20/20 Diet
Lola has devised a simple, effective, easy-to-follow diet plan based on her years of struggle with weight issues and dieting, and her wealth of experience as a nutritionist. After making some simple adjustments to her diet, Lola lost 20 kilos in 20 weeks, and you can too!
The 20/20 Diet is based on eating unprocessed foods and steering clear of the grains, dairy and refined sugar that are also common allergens.
This book offers a simple, practical, flexible weight-loss and healthy living regime delivered in an informal, friend-next-door kind of style that makes the book fun and interesting to read.
Lola shares scientific information about the reasons behind weight loss, but shares it in a laid-back, digestible way that is accessible. She strikes a great balance between science, nutritional knowledge, intuition, personal experience, and pure entertainment. At times, the book reads like a chick-lit story.
This book has a ton of tried-and-tested ways to lose weight. Features include: Metabolism-Boosters such as coconut oil, green tea and chile, that will actually help you lose weight at your desk; The Benefits of Sleep and what those zzzzs are doing for your body and mind; Stress-busters to halt that tummy fat; Exercise, Stretching, and Meditation Suggestions; Whole Foods Ingredient and Kitchenware Glossary; Eating Plans; and Delicious Simple and Tasty Recipes that will help you stick with the program and leave you feeling satisfied and nourished.
