I am one of those people who panics if I don't know where my next food source comes from.
If we go out for the day, I like to investigate nearby restaurants and cafes.
If we're going on a long trip, I'll pack snacks and also check out restaurants en route. Even hiking involves checking to see if there is a tea room at the end. If there isn't, I'll have a quick picnic.
The last time we went on a family hike, I heated up some remaining baking dough for our food jars, all made with small buckets of grated cheese! What can I say. Eating is living !!
It goes without saying that I'm often looking for ways to make a tasty meal too, so I don't take my clothes off. I suffer from training periods, healthy eating (well, healthier, with weekend treats). It would be the size of a house if it were not.
I have no doubt that I am addicted to food. The people who are not really concerned about what they are eating are not my people. I'm not sure why, but even if we have other things in common, food is an issue.

I once considered hypnotizing myself to reduce my food obsession. But it seems so bad trying to get rid of something you love so much. Can you imagine if it hypnotizes me and it really works?
What if I didn't worry about food anymore?
Here is my blog, my business, most of my hobbies and many of the good times that Chris and I have!
He had some serious stomach problems a couple of years ago that left him hungry for about 3 months. Yes, she lost weight, but OMG, it was a pain in the back.
Preparing a lovely meal for the family and he didn't like it. Go shopping or sightseeing, then order a cup of tea at the amazing bakery. Sit and watch a movie after the kids have gone to bed and don't feed him chunks of my big Milk Milk. It was hard!!
I will always consider myself lucky to have him as my husband, no matter what the future holds, but I must say, when did he start to improve? It was the most enormous relief! I felt like I had it back.
Gosh, that got really fast, didn't it?
Basically I'm saying that all food has to taste great and be nice. Obviously, too much is a problem, but trying to live on a restricted diet would depress me much more than that bun.
Little swaps (like a sugary cereal bar for one of these energy balls!) Here and there, a little more exercise, making sure I get to the hunger stage before eating, that's probably the only 'diet' that it would be realistic. able to follow.
These energy balls still have all the flavor, with banana, chocolate chips, cashew nuts, and coconut, but there are plenty of good things that are good for you, and yet they are satisfied enough not to reach for Lechera Lechera (except on weekends). week, of course, then I'm for all that chocolate).
Try my apricot and white chocolate energy balls too. Super delicious !!
Banana bread energy balls
These unbaked banana bread energy balls are filled with delicious treats. Perfect for breakfast on the run! Gluten free too!
Servings: 25 energy balls
- 110 g cashews
- 150g rolled oats (use certified gluten-free oats if necessary)
- 2 medium ripe bananas

- 3 tablespoons dark chocolate chips
- ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
- 6 tablespoons finely grated unsweetened coconut
- 1 tablespoon of chia seeds

Place the cashews in a food processor and pulse until it turns into a grainy paste. This paste will help the mixture stick together.
Add the rolled oats and press again for a few seconds to break the oats a bit. Add the bananas and pulse again until completely combined.
Add the ground almonds, then add the chocolate chips, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Stir again until combined. It should have a thick, sticky paste that can be rolled into balls. If the mixture is too loose, add an extra tablespoon of oatmeal.
Place the grated coconut and chia seeds in a shallow bowl and mix. Chia seeds will sink to the bottom, okay.
Put a heaping teaspoon of the mixture in your hand and then roll it into a ball. Roll into the coconut mixture, pressing down a bit so that the coconut sticks and some chia seeds also stick together. Place on a plate or tray.
Repeat until all the mixture is used. Eat right away or store in an airtight container at room temperature. Banana balls should be kept for 2-3 days.
