I've been having some fun in the kitchen lately and am excited to share my current favorite: no-bake energy balls full of anti-inflammatory and hormone balancing ingredients!
These will satisfy your sweet tooth while benefiting any inflammation or hormone imbalances you may be experiencing.
I should note that my kitchen was a mess after making these. Your hands will be nice and sticky during the making of these treats, and there's bound to be cacao powder, coconut flakes, and random seeds on your floor, counter tops, and everywhere in between. I think the mess is well worth it though!
These balls are great for hormone balancing because they are full of seeds that support your cycles. I will be posting next all about the science behind seed cycling, but in short- seed cycling is used to boost estrogen in the first phase of your menstrual cycle and boosting progesterone in the second phase. Seed cycling can help relieve PMS, increase fertility, and ease pain from ovarian cysts, endometriosis, PCOS, and more. For my anti-inflammatory and healing tea, check out this post. Since this recipe calls for sunflower seeds, if you're using these energy balls for seed cycling, I recommend you consume them during the second half of your cycle (Day 15-28).
These energy balls will keep you fueled without crashing as there are no refined sugars, no gluten, no dairy, and no grains.
