Ojas Bliss Balls
Ojas Bliss Balls- our favorite snack!
Winter has arrived and that means everything Vata reducing. To manage the cool, dry, light and mobile qualities the wind and darkness welcome during the season it is time to incorporate sweet, heavy and unctous (oily) foods into your diet. We get asked frequently for travel tips and ideas for snacks on the go for both children and adults, Ojas Bliss Balls are it!
In an earlier post we shared our Sesame Ojas Bliss Balls which offer a rich and deeply nourishing experience. See the Recipe Video here. Sometimes though we like to keep it sweet and simple and the OG Ojas Bliss Balls are the answer. Coated with coconut they look beautiful shared on the holiday table. If you feel adventurous you could make both recipes creating an Ojas Bliss Ball table spread to bring to your next event.
Best to consume Ojas Bliss Balls when Agni is Balanced
Seriously, these are delicious. However moderation is key to keeping them a support of health and not a cause of imbalance. Be sure you are hungry when consuming heavier foods or sweet treats to allow the digestive system to properly utilize the nutrients so they become healthy tissues and not an accumulation of undigested food. Immediately after a cleanse program these may be hard or heavy to digest; but as agni (digestive fire) increases and stabilizes they make the perfect afternoon snack or breakfast bite to sustain energy, support tissue strength and pack immune boosting rejuvenation for the Winter.
These powerhouse snacks are delightful and welcomed when shared with friends and family. Be sure to make a double batch this holiday season, trust us, they don’t last long.
