March is National Nutrition Month, so I spend the month celebrating and educating at my place of employment. 🙂 Tomorrow, the department heads are having a “healthy” carry-in for lunch. We’ll see how “healthy” the dishes are… I’ll be the judge. 😉 Normal carry-ins consist of fat-loaded dips, butter & sugar laden baked goods, and enough calories for the entire day… hopefully tomorrow’s is a bit more clean & green. hehe.
I decided to try a new recipe, courtesy of fANNEtastic food: Chocolate Coconut Almond Balls.
Ingredients: (makes about 6 balls)
1. Pour coconut onto a plate and set aside.
2. Place the rest of the ingredients (except coconut) into a food processor. Process about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
3. Wet hands (do this each time before you form the balls – it will help everything stick) and then form mixture into ball shapes. The recipe should yield about 6 balls.
4. Roll balls in coconut mixture.
🙂 Happy National Nutrition Month
