Fill U Up Energy/Protien Pucks

Hey there, I know I talked about the Fill U Up Pucks back in November. I hope you signed up for emails to be told when I post things. If not now is a great time to do that. Over in the right hand sidebar. Ok Well Here is what they look like.

The top layer here is the ones I put Greens+ in and the bottom ones are the ones without. I use those for the husband because he does not like green stuff. Ok next up was the ingredients.

Ok and now for the proportions. Which you can play with for things you like and omit stuff you do not. Just by adding cinnamon you get such a change. Change is good, it breaks up the day after day routines we get stuck in sometimes.
So here is a basic mixture. I split in half or in fours and add different stuff for a little pep in my life. Hahaha! Yes sometimes seasoning or flavorings can do that for me. It is nice to have things hum drum.
Ingredients:
1 3/4 C. Dates
1/4 C. Water
1 Tbsp.+ 1 tsp. Coconut oil
1/4 C. nut butter ( Tahini, sunflower, almond, cashew.)
1 C. Almonds
1 C. Mixed Seeds
( I use 1/3 each Sunflower, Pumpkin, & Hemp. But, I have also added 1/3 C of a mix i make half & half Chia + Flax seed, Pine nuts or Sesame seeds)
1/3 C. Coconut flakes
I blend each thing separately until it is course chopped, like other store bought ones.
Depends on how much chewing you want to do.
After each thing is chopped I pour it in a bowl.
The last thing processed because it is sticky and messy I do the dates, water and coconut oil. Add them to the bowl of nuts and seeds, and then mix.
Form into pucks and layer with wax paper.
I store them in snack size bags in the frig. About 6 or 8 to a bag.
Makes about 32 pucks 1 1/2″ round
I carry snack bags of them in my purse for those times. To avoid junk food in check out lines and fast food joints. They last for a month or so.
Hey be sure to leave a comment. If you make them let me know that too. Listen if you do not comment or like I don’t know you came. Kinda sad right… I am praying for you right now and if you are starting a lifestyle change you succeed. No diet ever works, you are loved just the way you are by a mighty God and me. Have a great New Years Weekend and Be healthy this year to come In Jesus Holy Name!!!

Living and well

Wow I did not realize it has been so long.

Here we are… At Church Resurrection Sunday.
But that is not what a came to post today. I am still dropping weight through exercise but I realize the food going in is the problem. I have studied many different lifestyle changes. I wont call them diets because there is none you can do and just go back to eating whatever you want and stay skinny. Back when I first came to Florida I heard about the Ph Miracle on tv. I was 175 or so. After doing the plan and balancing my ph I was able to run a 3k 6 days a week and went down to 135. Now as i said I reverted back to eating whatever and came to Hialeah…Cuban food will do it to you every time! I am starting it all over I re-read both books I have on it and searched the web high and low for all the info again. I used to buy a snack bar at whole foods they were greens+ bars. Which I really liked for a late afternoon pick me up at work, before dinner. They are kinda on the pricey side being 2.50 a bar or so. SO…
I decided to make my own. I have made seed and nut bars before but used sugar and dried fruit and nuts which are mostly forbidden in a PH Balanced lifestyle. So here is my recipe tweeked.

Ready for the refrigerator

Power of Plus Green Seed & nut Energy Bars (adapted from Green Kitchen)
Makes around 16 bars
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup dried shredded coconut
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
4 tbs chia seeds
20 fresh medjool dates, pitted
6 tbsp coconut oil, room temperature
Sprinkle over after blended
1/4 c Almond flour
2 tbsp Greens+ (optional)

1. In a food processor or high speed blender, pulse the dry ingredients quickly. Do not over-process, you want it a little crunchy. Place the mixture in a bowl and set aside. Add half of the dates and the rest of the wet ingredients to the food processor. Run the processor for 30 seconds, then add the rest of the dates one at a time while the machine is running until the mixture is smooth. You might have to help out by stirring around a few times with a fork or add a dash of water.
2. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients, add almond flour and Greens+ and stir until well combined (I used my hands to really get the mixture well combined!). Press the mixture evenly into a 11 x 7-inch baking dish, make sure it becomes quite compact. Place in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Cut into bars. Wrap them in paper and store in an air-tight container. Will keep around a week in the fridge.Can also be stored in the freezer for longer period of time.
And you will get some crumbles good for sprinkling in what you like or even just out of a snack bag!
