One of my favourite snacks at the moment is a good bliss ball.  They curb the sweet cravings, full of nutrients and are easy to make (and eat!).  Most importantly, when I need to eat on the run I place them in a snap lock bag and put them into my MIA pouch. Here is my recipe for the most delicious chocolate bliss balls: 60g almonds 60g cashews (or 120g of nuts of your choice - but I love almonds and cashews) 60g sunflower seeds (or any seed mix really, pepitas work well too) 60g sultanas 120g dates, seed removed 1 tsp vanilla essence or equivalent 2 tablespoons cacao powder Desiccated coconut for rolling Place all ingredients into a food...
