      Nora’s Nut Ball Snacks
      (Thanks to Nora Gedgaudas – author “Paleo Body – Paleo Mind”)
      Should you find yourself hungry between meals and need “a little something” I think you’ll agree that these are wonderful.
      You’ll need:
      One regular-sized jar (approx. 140 grams) of almond butter (or any other nut butter—other than peanut or cashew butter—that you prefer). Stir surface oil in well!
      150-300 grams (an approximation) of organic nuts (almonds, pecans, macadamias, brazil nuts, pistachio’s…etc, preferably pre-soaked and dried). Use a food processor to grind or chop to desired consistency/”chunkiness”.
      Handful of organic sesame seeds and/or chia seeds (great source of mucilaginous fiber to help “keep that train rolling”)
      Organic shredded coconut (as much or as little as you like)
      Vanilla extract, or powdered/crushed vanilla beans
      Approx. 120 grams of coconut oil (room temperature) & approx. 130 grams of organic cacao butter (decidedly “key” ingredients)
      approx. 90 grams organic coconut meal
      approx. 60 grams organic cacao powder (ground cacao nibs)(cacao nibs have roughly 2X the antioxidant content of green tea!)
      approx. 60 grams dried goji berries
      Optional ingredients:
      Whatever floats your boat (and happens to be low carb & paleo compatible))
      Blend the above in a bowl thoroughly, then spoon out into little “balls” onto wax paper on a plate or tray. Refrigerate for a good hour, or until these firm up.
      If you want to take them with you, you might consider placing them in a small portable cooler. You could also individually wrap these in wax paper to secure them (if they can’t be refrigerated) so that they don’t get all over everything if they melt.
      Prepare your taste buds to be dazzled!

      1 bunch of kale
      1-3 tablespoons olive oil (or combine olive and sesame oil)
      1 teaspoon celtic / himalayan salt
      Preheat oven to 175 degrees C. Line a non insulated tray with parchment or wax paper.
      With a knife or kitchen scissors carefully remove the leaves from the thick stems. Wash and thoroughly dry kale. Drizzle kale with olive oil and rub into the kale thoroughly. Then tear into bite size pieces. Place on sheet and sprinkle with salt.
      Bake until the edges brown but are not burnt, 10 to 15 minutes

      For anyone out there eating the Primal Body-Primal Mind way that misses the delightful crunch of popcorn and those other crunchie-munchie snacks, your days of deprivation are O-V-E-R.

Bear Grylls would have sauteed the chair and seasoned it with iron filings before succumbing to temptation, guess I need to harden up.)
