Anti-Inflammatory Bliss Balls: the Health Boost You Need


Do you regularly experience…

Low energy?

Foggy brain?

Tummy trouble?

Breakouts?

Body aches and pains?

Headaches?

These are all indicators of inflammation in the body. Poor dietary choices and unhealthy lifestyles can lead to chronic inflammation. Sugar, gluten, processed foods, soda, and alcohol are common inflammatory foods and drinks that many of us lean toward daily. I have had great success with clients by eliminating these foods from their diets.

When possible, it's essential to stick to a clean whole foods diet. When convenient snacks and shortcuts are needed, I like to recommend bliss balls to my clients as they are healthy, easy to prepare, and delicious!

Bliss balls, also known as protein balls, are among the healthiest snacks to munch on to prevent the late afternoon energy crash. Anti-inflammatory bliss balls are made with superfoods that boost energy levels and help your body fight inflammation.

Let’s recap the many benefits of bliss balls…

  • Bliss balls are loaded with anti-inflammatory superfoods

  • Bliss balls a are great alternative to protein bars with proinflammatory ingredients

  • Bliss balls are an incredible source of healthy carbs, which makes them a great pre-workout snack too.

  • They also contain protein to fend off blood sugar dips between meals.

THE BEST SUPERFOODS FOR ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BLISS BALLS

TURMERIC POWDER

Turmeric comes from the root of the Turmeric Plant, known as Curcuma Longa. Turmeric is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory. It also promotes detoxification and gut health. My favourite way to use turmeric powder is to make a turmeric latte. Yum!


GINGER

Gingerol, the most medicinal compound in ginger, has potent anti-inflammatory benefits. Research shows ginger may hinder the production of the pro-inflammatory cytokines responsible for inflammation in the body.

CACAO

Cacao beans are loaded with flavonoids that help them naturally reduce cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and improve circulation. Cacao beans also have anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants that help protect the body from diseases. They are also a powerful energy resource, something that also allows them to help improve mental health. I love to add cacao powder to smoothies and top my parfaits with cacao nibs.

GOJI BERRIES

Goji berries are considered superfoods because they are loaded with nutrients that help boost your immunity, improve skin health, and give you energy. Goji berries are also anti-inflammatory.

HEMP SEEDS

Hemp seeds make great additions to salads, smoothies, and breakfast cereals. They are packed full of GLA, which reduces symptoms related to cardiovascular issues like high blood pressure and heart disease. GLA is also great for obesity, diabetes, and related issues. Hemp seeds improve digestive health and reduce symptoms of inflammation.

CHIA SEEDS

Chia seeds are an anti-inflammatory powerhouse. You can add chia seeds to smoothies, make chia pudding or sprinkle on your breakfast cereals or yoghurts. Because chia seeds expand when they soak in water, drink plenty of water with them for the best results.
