An incredibly soothing drink, linseed tea (sometimes referred to as flaxseed tea) helps to hydrate the body efficiently and quickly. It has a glutinous texture once prepared which is how it targets hydration and holds the linseed’s Omega 3 properties ready to be dispersed.
Drink 1 mug daily and see the difference to mood and emotion, skin and hair and general well being.

My family adore these energy balls. They are a bite size snack packed with quality protein and give a slow release energy. My husband uses them for cycling while my son eats them between school and his sports clubs for an extra physical boost.
In a food processor (or blender) add -
200g Brazil &/or almond nuts*
(or any quality nut that you prefer. I do not use peanuts)
1 tbsp cacao powder
1 tbsp macca powder
1 tbsp honey (I use raw honey)*
1 tsp coconut oil
1 tsp bee polleen*
With the cutting blade process this mix to a dough consistency.
Roll tsp amounts of dough into balls and roll these in coconut.
Makes approximately 25 to 30 balls.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for approximately 2 weeks.
Can be eaten 20 minutes after refrigeration.
Optional - try other dried fruits or combinations e.g. apricots and dates.
Use more or less of the cacao & the macca powders. To your taste.
Add seeds to your mix
