Lemon Blueberry Bites

Recently I’ve been learning a lot more about the mind-body connection and how our body works as one. Western medicine has taught me for so long to see my brain as one entity and the rest of my biology as another. I mean hey, just look at the different types of practices out there… there are doctors now specialized for all parts of our body, but hardly will you find a practitioner who focuses on us as a whole (such as a naturopathic or functional medicine doctor).

If our body is out of wack (inflamed, gut issues, constipation to name a few), it’s difficult to find alignment, especially with the brain. How can we work on our mind if we’re not maintaining the rest? We work as one. We’re not chopped up beings. One of my current journeys is honing in on my negative thinking and limitations, and as I’ve done my reading, I’ve come to the conclusion that my love for snacking regularly needs to be managed as well. As much as I love to fuel my body, I also can sometimes fuel too much. Overeating can cause brain fog, grogginess, bloat, and isn’t great at all for our digestion.

I’ve found that these bliss bites/raw ball recipes I’ve been making help with my snacking habits. These are packed with superfoods that are filling and dense with nutrients, and because of this, less is more! Trust me, once you dig into these you’ll want to keep snacking on them, but you’ll thank yourself later by storing these away and keeping them handy for the week or when you’re on-the-go.

Happy (intuitive) snacking!
