Cacao-Coconut-Chai Energy Balls
January 04, 2017
Satiate your sweet tooth without compromising your health regimen. Great to eat before and after workouts or when your cravings kick in for that special "sweet" something. By incorporating Kauai-grown herbs; like Cacao, Turmeric, Yellow Ginger, Tulsi, Galangal Ginger, Cinnamon, Allspice, Lemongrass, Ashwagandha and Gotu kola, you are giving your body the energy it needs to perform at its best, while alkalizing and ridding the body of toxins, inflammation, and free radicals that may lead to illness and injury. These are sweet treats; or better said..."treat"ments that will invigorate and re-energize your circulatory, digestive, immune, respiratory, endocrine and nervous system throughout the day when it is much needed.
