FMTV - Lemon Turmeric Energy Balls

Lemon Turmeric Energy Balls

Exclusive on FMTV

Series: Pre & Post Workout Snacks | Episode: 3 | Runtime: 01m 54s | Release date: 2017

This segment features: Rachel Morrow.

Before your afternoon or evening workout, top up your tank with one of these energizing balls.

Why It's Good For You:

During the day you run your tank dry. Most of us often feel sluggish in the afternoon and look for a pick-me-up to give us the boost before our training session. It is important to feed your body carbohydrates before your afternoon workout for a consistent energy release during training. This recipe contains medjool dates and oats for a hit of carbohydrates, fats from almonds and chia seeds to slow down the energy release, and lemon and turmeric as preventative measure against post-workout inflammation.

Featuring:
Rachel Morrow

Hello there, we suggest using Flax seed instead of chia. Also as for coconut here are some examples of alternatives that you can try: for coconut milk you can use yogurt or almond milk, for shredded coconut, you may use grated nuts like almond or brazil nuts. Hope this helps :) ~ Joyce

The same recipe on Foodmatters.com calls for 1/2 cup activated almonds or cashews. This recipe does not mention activating. Does it matter?

Hello Geree. We're sorry for the confusion. It is best to activate nuts and seeds before adding them to your recipes because the substances which block nutrient absorption are disabled, whilst their beneficial nutrients remain intact. We end up with a delicious, nutritious snack that our bodies can easily digest and absorb! :) ~ Karelle
