Ginger Energy Balls (Paleo, Vegan)

Hi there!

Thank you again for all the sweet comments and messages I have been getting, you guys really are amazing. I met with the GI doctor yesterday and they want to proceed with a colonoscopy on Thursday. I am a little bummed, but really trying to stick with the whole ‘listen to the experts’ advice. Since I cannot eat all day today, at least it’s one less day to meal prep? Silver lining?! Maybe?!

This weekend when I started getting some energy back, I decided to experiment in the kitchen with some anti-inflammatory ingredients. A restricted diet does not have to be a bland tasting diet! These Ginger Energy Balls turned out amazingly delicious and they did not upset my stomach!

Ginger – an ingredient many people have heard of, but few seem to know the benefits of!

Here is a quick, Ginger 101 for you:

  • Relieves stomach pains such as morning sickness, nausea, colic, and an upset stomach
  • Serves as an anti-inflammatory ingredient
  • Sometimes used to treat sore muscles or arthritis
  • The oil from ginger can also be applied to burns to relieve the pain
  • Often used for cooking, flavoring, and fragrances.

This recipe was incredibly easy! I literally just threw all of the ingredients into a food processor and let it do all the work. As a note – you will have to let it run for about 1 – 2 minutes to get everything nice and mixed in.

Store at room temperature or in the fridge! I prefer in the fridge!

With all my kitchen experimenting going on these days, I’ve started labeling new goodies I put in the fridge with a little descriptor to entice my family to grab one!…unfortunately, this came back to haunt me this time because everyone felt guilty touching my ‘anti-inflammatory’ foods. Guess I have to eat them all.

I’ve been on a major Energy Ball quick lately, here is a quick Energy Ball Recipe Roundup for you!
