If you’re looking for a sweet treat without guilt, these carrot coconut truffles are the perfect solution. Made with grated carrot and shredded coconut, they provide a burst of natural sweetness without using any refined sugars. Not only are they delicious, but carrots are also rich in essential nutrients like Vitamin A and biotin. The addition of coconut adds a hint of tropical flavor while providing healthy fats and fiber. And because they can be stored in the fridge, these truffles make for a convenient snack on the go. This recipe has been a staple in my mother’s cookbook for years. However, owing to the extra pounds we acquired throughout the summer vacations, I modified it slightly to cut down on calories and make it even more of a guilt-free snack. I also changed the technique. Although my mother used to sauté the shredded carrots, making the mixture softer, I prefer raw carrots because they have more flavor and add extra texture to the truffles. These truffles are a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth without sacrificing any other part of the meal. They also freeze well, so you’ll have them on hand for those particularly intense cravings that strike at unexpected times! These carrot coconut treats really do taste delicious - my family can’t get enough of them themselves. Give this recipe a try if you want something healthy but still very satisfying… you won’t be disappointed By the way, if you’re not a fan of carrots or coconut, my Energy Bites with Dates recipe is an excellent alternative with half the calories! Not to mention, they are just as easy to make, and they pack an extra protein punch perfect for a morning boost!

So it’s back to school time again and that means it’s time for some lunch! Whether back-to-school time represents making lunches for yourself or your kids, it’s never a bad thing to get some great ideas. Maybe you’re needing something to take to work or you do meal preps. I’m not really in any of these categories and I still love fun lunches. So while I’m not in school anymore (thank goodness) my youngest sister is going back to school soon. It’s had me thinking about I always seem to miss this opportunity every year to share these kinds of ideas. And that’s what today’s post is. It’s definitely more about the inspiration than a rigid recipe but I have included the links to some of the recipes I’ve used here. Sushi Box: for the sushi I’ve used this recipe and added a little soy sauce. On the side are some carrots, zucchini slices, strawberries, green grapes, and sliced mango. For a small treat I added a peanut butter cup from this recipe. Berries + Granola: for this one I’ve used some homemade muesli (but you can use any cereal or granola you’d like) and the chia pudding from this recipe. Along with that I added some blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and sunshine raspberries. Then I added a little bit of homemade trailmix made from buckinis, cacao nibs, and pepitas. AB+Banana+Strawberry Sandwich: So the sandwich is simply some thinly sliced strawberries and bananas spread with a little bit of almond butter. You can use any nut or seed butter you prefer. On the side I added some kiwis, apples, snap peas, and red bell peppers with some guacamole to dip in. I added some energy bites from this recipe. Now I know kids can be pretty particular so if you’re making these for a young one, definitely feel free to make swaps. I hope you’re getting as excited as I am about the coming season and I hope you got something from these ideas. 🙂
