Randwick Nutritionist :Healthy Energy Balls

Randwick Nutritionist-This is one of those recipes that I prepare on a Sunday afternoon to kill time with the kids if it’s raining outside. One of my favourite nuts from all time our almonds. ( mainly because of a childhood memory which sits fondly in my mind).

My Healthy  Energy Balls generally have a lot of nutritional health benefits including a good source of protein, which will help you build muscle and curb of hunger cravings.They are high in fibre which will help improve your digestion, thus helping with weight management.

Almonds are also a fantastic source of good fats which is great if your looking to protect your self from getting diabetes or improve hypertension.
