I hope everyone is having a lovely day- yet again I am not organised for WIAW, but I have enjoyed seeing what other people have been eating.
A while ago I was sent some lovely little snacks to review for my blog, from Something from Sarah.
Some raw superfood energy balls. These are lovely little balls made with dates, cashews, hemp protein, chia seeds, coconut butter and other lovely ingredients.
The Raw Cacao ones were delicious- they have a short of chewy texture- softer than the CKK’s fudge babies- I think the addition of the coconut butter helps. They are about 10% protein, from the nuts and also from the chia seeds and hemp protein.
The Peruvian Maca ones were lovely too- I liked the slightly unusual flavour- fairly sweet but not too much. Plus the texture was lovely yet again. They recommend one ball per serving, but I had both as the pack was 40g, and I think I had one as a pre run snack, and another as a post run one.
They also make some lovely looking breakfast blends (ground up seeds and nuts to sprinkle on cereal etc) which look tasty, and also very pretty in the little tins. Worth a look anyway.
I went to see my Mum and Dad yesterday, so I am now well stocked with eggs, and I am looking forward to doing some baking this weekend. I saw (on the Pink Whisk blog) that some people are starting to make their Christmas cakes though! I won’t be doing that just yet- I’ll save that for October half term I think.
After work I went out on a short run- I decided to miss the Sweatshop run because it ends up being about 4.5 miles with the run there and back, so I did 3 miles on my own, and my legs felt fine. So I have signed up to do the Brighton Half Marathon next spring 🙂 Fingers crossed I make it this time.
Any races or events coming up? Anyone thinking about Christmas just yet??
