Whole lot of lovely

Good Morning!
I love hearing from everyone! You are all special and lovely! Take time to do something you love today! Sometimes we can neglect self care, I definitely did in the past to the point of exhaustion, but starting self care can become a habit. Snuggle with your pet, act silly, reach out to someone you haven’t talked to in a while, take a hot bath, meet someone for coffee, watch a rerun of one of your favorite shows, read a book, take a walk, find something to make you laugh, rest when you need to! What are some of your favorite ways of self care? How are you going to do it today?
Today I’m going to go outside and walk in the sunshine (It’s a nice day), and later this evening, I’m doing a fifteen minute yoga stretch while wearing a Perfectly Posh naturally based pampering face mask to feed my skin! You can self care and multi task at the same time!ย 

If you haven’t yet joined my new private Sandra’s Perfectly Posh Health and Beauty VIP Facebook Group where we share things about our lives and encourage each other to be our best, as well as me sharing Perfectly Posh products I use and love, you can join us here!ย

Blueberry Coconut Balls – Nut Free, Paleo, SCD


Dried Blueberry Coconut Balls - Paleo

I love healthy snack balls! They are fun to pop in when you have a craving, or need something small to tide you over before a meal, or are having a snack attack and want it to be good for you, and taste like it isn’t. ๐Ÿ™‚

Coconut Blueberry Balls - Healthy Snacking - Grain Free

Blueberry Coconut Balls for Healthy Snack Attacks

Here’s a recipe for Blueberry Coconut Snack Balls that fits the bill perfectly!

Blueberry Coconut Snack Balls

Ingredients:

1/3 Cup of Coconut Flour

1/3 Cup of Dried Blueberries (I used these)

1/4 Cup of Avocado Oil or Coconut Oil

2 Tablespoons of Honey

1 Tablespoon of Ground Flax

1 Teaspoon of Lemon Juice

1/4 Teaspoon of Sea Salt

1/4 Teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon

1 Cup of Toasted Coconut, Pulverized (I used Dang Coconut Chips that are already toasted, but you can toast your own.)

Directions:

In a medium bowl, add the coconut flour, flax, and salt. Mix with a whisk. In a separate bowl whisk together the honey, oil, vanilla and lemon juice. If using coconut oil, melt it just until runny. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry, and blend with a hand held mixer. Fold in the dried blueberries.

Place your toasted coconut in a mini food processor or use a mortise and pestle to pulverize the coconut flakes.

Now, scoop the dough into seven tablespoon sized balls, and roll in the pulverized toasted coconut.

Refrigerate and enjoy!

Let Me Pamper You

 

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls


Valentine’s Day is coming up soon, and these are a perfect chocolate indulgence if you looooooove chocolate chip cookie dough or chocolate chip cookies like me! They are enrobed in their own little portion size packages of dark chocolate. The recipe is egg free, so no need to be concerned about eating raw egg. They are also free of dairy, nuts, and gluten!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites Dairy Free, Nut Free

You can package these in a pretty little container for gift giving, store them in the freezer, refrigerator or at room temperature. I like them cold. It just depends on how firm you want them. They will be quite firm in the freezer, less firm in the refrigerator and have a soft interior at room temperature.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls - Dairy Free

 

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

Ingredients for Cookie Dough:

1/3 Cup of Coconut Flour (scooped)

1/4 Cup of Avocado Oil

2 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup

1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

1 Tablespoon of Ground Flax

1 Tablespoon of Grass Fed Gelatin

1 Teaspoon of Fresh Lemon Juice

1/4 Teaspoon of Baking Soda

1/4 Teaspoon of Sea Salt

1/3 Cup of Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips

Directions: Sift together the Coconut Flour, Flax, Gelatin, Baking Soda and Sea Salt. In a separate bowl whisk together the Avocado Oil, Maple Syrup, Vanilla and Lemon Juice. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry, and mix with a hand held electric mixer until your dough is well combined. Stir in the Mini Chocolate Chips.

With a tablespoon sized cookie scoop, scoop the dough into round balls with flat bottoms onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Place the dough balls in the freezer for at least an hour.

Chocolate Exterior:

1 Cup of Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Chips

When you are ready to dip the balls in chocolate, melt the chocolate chips over simmering water in a double broiler stirring constantly until all the chips are melted. (I make my own by taking a small saucepan and filling it with an inch of water and putting the chocolate chips into a metal mixing bowl that will fit on top of the saucepan and not touch the water.)

When the chocolate is smooth, dip each ball, one at a time, into the melted chocolate with two forks, coating it quickly. Then, place it back on the parchment lined cookie sheet.

Refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about half an hour.

Winter Health Tips to Fight the Blues!


You Are Beautiful

Welcome February! What are you looking forward to this month? This is the time of year people can become starved for color and suffer from SAD. Try adding a splash of color to your wardrobe each day to boost feel good vibes. A positive thought before your feet even hit the floor in the morning can make a big difference in how your day goes, and it is cumulative! So, the more you put this into practice, the bigger the benefits, because you are literally rewiring your brain.

Deep breathing for a few minutes when you are feeling stressed, by breathing in four, holding for four and exhaling for 8 lowers stress. Try doing ten rounds of this with your eyes closed. It only takes a couple minutes, and finally getting outdoors into the fresh air, especially on sunny days, even for 15 minutes, promotes sleep, raises vitamin D levels, and boosts well being. Feeling happy and relaxed makes you radiate beauty!
