High Protein Tahini Hemp Energy Balls

High Protein Recipe for Tahini Hemp Energy Ball No Bake

With so many Energy Ball recipes available on the internet, what makes these Tahini Hemp Energy Balls different? Tahini is made from roasted sesame seeds, and that’s exactly what it tastes like – some would describe the flavour as nutty or earthy. Energy Balls often use protein powders for added protein, where these ones use pure hemp hearts for protein. I’ve opted not to use dates, as I prefer local unpasteurized honey for sweetness instead. The flavour combination of tahini with honey and toasted coconut is what makes these Tahini Hemp Energy Balls one of my favourites, and comparable to the 100 Calorie Peanut Butter Energy Balls which are one of most popular recipes on my blog.

Best Avocado Chocolate Mousse

Today I’m turning 27. I have a pretty clear memory of all the birthday cakes that helped to get me to this age.

Now, the more health conscious Rachel has opted to forgo the refined carbohydrates, saturated fat and sugar packed desserts and instead…. is having the best chocolate avocado mousse you have ever had!!!!

Artificial Sweeteners – Artificial Goodness?

Sweets in Bruges, Belgium

Sweets in Bruges, Belgium

Recent reports state that Australians have reduced their sugar intake by 30% in recent years. Good for you I hear you say! But at what cost? We haven’t lost our sweet tooth, instead we have replaced sugar with artificial sweeteners which carry no shortage of claims on their ill effects — ranging from Alzheimer’s, cancer, seizures, depression and blindness to name a few. What no one ever mentions is the cost to the environment. Maybe what we need to focus on is not what these sweeteners may be costing our health, but what they are costing our environment.
