I was delighted to be asked to make some energy balls for Zoe’s fabulous yin yoga workshops in Leamington this month. I have been attending her classes regularly now and I can’t recommend them enough. (https://www.facebook.com/zogayogacoventry/)
I wasn’t quite sure what to make initially. Its been such a hot summer so I wanted something with a more summery refreshing flavour. After a bit of internet searching I struck gold with this zingy take on an energy ball. To me it is a good example of how we can all find a little bit of what we fancy if we take a moment to explore. I don’t know about you, but I often come back from my holidays wanting to recreate a new dish I have eaten. I am rarely able to replicate a memorable meal, but I can often create something with a hint of it.. So next time you want to cook up something different, why not take a moment to really consider what it is you fancy and see if you can create your own little bit of magic.
In the meantime, if you fancy an energy ball with a little taste of summer, why not try these for starters!
I will be preparing healthy treats for our relax and regenerate day next month. This is now fully booked, but I think there are still a few places on Lisa Valentines fabulous yoga retreat in January.. https://www.facebook.com/events/1644452252320792/ Please do get in touch with Lisa if you’d like to join us!
I am really enjoying preparing food for retreats & workshops and would welcome the opportunity to do this more if you know anyone who might need me!
Thank you! Enjoy the end of the summer everyone. Namaste!
