Quick Energy Balls

DAIRY-FREE, PALEO, and most importantly ANTI-INFLAMMATORY. Another Eat Burn Sleep recipe that delights the tastebuds and heals the body.

These energy balls are so good, so easy to make and are packed with goodness.

Walnuts are great for brain function, full of protein and good fats.

Dates are a natural anti-fungal, so they help fight bad bacteria in the gut.

Raw cacao is full of antioxidants, iron, and magnesium and turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory properties.

These are delicious as a snack at any time of the day. Pre or post-workout.

With a cup of tea or coffee. At home or on the go.
