Salted Caramel De-stress Bliss Balls

creative bloggers need to fuel their bright minds with the best nutrients to live a healthy balanced lifestyle. These bliss-balls with coconut and chia are perfect for that!

Do you see the de-stress theme we’ve got going on lately? Rather than pushing through every stressor and ending up with adrenal burnout, I started taking preventative measures to manage my stress daily. Stress is inevitable, especially when you have bright goals you’re working towards, but that doesn’t mean it should overtake our lives and steal our joy.

One way I’ve been conscious of stress-management is through my nutrition. I’ve been researching supplements and natural remedies for de-stressing your body and healing adrenal fatigue. The key ingredients I incorporate daily are healthy fats from nuts and seeds, dates for a natural energy boost, alkalizing greens for balancing acidity in the body, and adaptogenic herbs to lower cortisol (your stress hormone).

Photoshoots, running social media accounts, Facebook, Instagram, add up to  big day of dreams and it is important to relax after!

What better way to get in mood-boosting and stress-reducing superfoods than a sweet + salty treat? Enter ‘bliss balls’ - I discovered this 3pm sugar craving crusher while traveling in Australia. Made from dried fruit and nuts, it’s basically like raw cake rolled into a little heavenly truffle. You guys know how I feel about my raw desserts
