Super Turmeric Seed Bites

Print

I really try to avoid packaged snacks, especially protein bars, when possible. They’re full of sugar and processed ingredients. This is why I try to make a batch of my own protein-dense snacks each week. I have trouble making things stay in bar form so I usually make a batch of energy balls. They’re pre-portioned, portable, and I fill mine with nutrients! These turmeric ones have the medicinal, anti-inflammatory, immune-boosting powers of turmeric, protein for healthy bones/joints/skin/hair from collagen, tons of healthy fats, and almost no carbs or sugar. Make a batch and let me know what you think!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

These turmeric bites are a great alternative to a processed protein bar and perfect for when you are out and about and need that boost. Turmeric has so many great benefits and it is so easy to add into recipes like this. Its main ingredient is curcumin which has been shown to be anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and may be able to alleviate depressive symptoms. These balls also contain sunflower seeds which have a healthy dose of vitamin E and hemp hearts (which are just another name for shelled hemp seeds) which have a good amount of omega-3 fatty acids which are very important for preventing heart disease.
