Making Healthy Energizers is fun and easy!
If you’re a candy-craver, don’t despair. These healthy Energizers can be part of your healthy meal plan. They can be a great addition to breakfast or a mid day snack.
1 cup of your favorite (or mix) raw nuts (Almonds, Walnuts or Pecans)
A little bit of dark unsweetened chocolate(optional)
Dried coconut shreds (optional)
Soak the prunes in hot water, so that they’re easily blended into a soft paste. Put cup of raw almonds and walnuts(or pecans) in a food processor or strong blender and use a pulse function until they’re nicely ground.
Add soaked blended prunes and a little water and mix all together or process on low until the prunes and nuts become a mass. Note that for different types of nuts, you’ll have to adjust the number of prunes.
For some variety, bring out some unsweetened dark chocolate, dried coconut, protein powder, or any of your favorite nuts and dried fruit. Dates and nuts will make a perfect combination as well. Try them and keep the rest in the refrigerator for a few days.
Grill tuna over a high heat until it is cooked through. Be sure to oil the tuna a bit or oil the grill before putting tuna on. Tuna drys out quickly on the grill and if you cook tuna beyond medium rare it will be dry. Grill 6-8 minutes on each side or 4 minutes on each side, if you prefer pink tuna at the center. Season with herbs and spices.
You can also marinade the tuna before cooking in a light marinate: olive oil, herbs, spice and a few drops of lemon juice
Another great marinade consist of garlic, ginger,low sodium soy sauce and sesame seeds.
Delicious cilantro sauce
Mix a little bit of chopped fresh cilantro leaves, 2-4 teaspoons fresh ginger(peeled and grated), 4-5 grated garlic cloves, 2 tbs olive oil, lime juice, a little ammount of low sodium soy sauce and freshly grounded black pepper. Pour cilantro sauce into skillet and cook for a 1 min.
