Bliss Balls are one of the things you will ALWAYS find in my fridge.
Stored in containers on the top shelf of our fridge, they're there for easy, healthy snacks - or those times where I want something sweet but don't want a sugar rush. 

Usually you'll find these Mint Chocolate Bliss Balls or these Salted Caramel Bliss Balls, but lately there's a new favourite in town.

These Super Seed Bliss Balls are the ultimate healthy snack as they're jam packed with nutrients - and are made with just 5 simple ingredients.

Hemp Seeds pack a protein punch, adding 25 grams of protein to the recipe as well as all nine essential amino acids (making them a complete source of protein - a must if you eat a plant based diet!), omega-3 fatty acids, fibre, vitamin E, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, iron, zinc and b-vitamins. They're also said to boost heart health, support brain health, reduce inflammation and improve skin health as well as reducing the symptoms of PMS and menopause.

Sunflower Seeds are incredible for skin and hair health as they're full of vitamin E, copper and essential fatty acids and are also rich in vitamin C, phytosterols (cholesterol-lowering compounds), fibre and magnesium, making them great for heart health, bone health, digestion and mental health. 

Flaxseeds are full of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium. They're great for heart health, have been found to reduce the risk of some cancers and are great for digestion and blood sugar control. 

Pepitas also known as pumpkin seeds, are super rich in magnesium and zinc as well as dozens of vital nutrients. They're known to be beneficial for heart health, prostate health and protection against certain cancers and their high antioxidant levels can also help to reduce inflammation.

Dates obviously aren't a seed, but they have health benefits too! They're high in fibre and disease-fighting antioxidants, have been found to help control blood sugar and improve bone health and have even been found to improve brain health. 

But enough of the science side - you came for the food, right?

But tell me, 
What's one food you always have in your house? 
For me it's nut butter, chocolate, plain greek yogurt and carrots - you will never enter my house and not find those present 😜 They're also the first things I buy whenever we're travelling and buying groceries, haha.
