“Ketogenic” is a term for a low-carb diet (like the Atkins diet). The idea is for you to get more calories from protein and fat and less from carbohydrates. You cut back most on the carbs that are easy to digest, like sugar, soda, pastries, and white bread.-WebMD
INGREDIENTS for No Bake Keto Pumpkin Energy Balls
6 Medjool Dates, pitted
1⁄2 cup old-fashioned oats, pulse if desired in blender
1⁄3 cup canned pumpkin purée
1⁄3 cup coconut flour, almond flour or ground flax seed
1 scoop (serving) PURUS LABS KETOFEED, SALTED VANILLA CARAMEL
1⁄4 cup natural peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp pumpkin spice seasoning
2 tsp pure maple syrup
1⁄8 tsp salt (if using unsalted cashew butter)
DIRECTIONS for No Bake Keto Pumpkin Energy Balls
First, soak the dates in a bowl of hot water for 5 minutes to soften them; then drain and pat dry.
Combine dates, oats, and pumpkin in a food processor.
Continue to pulse the mixture until the dates are chopped coarsely and the mixture is sticky, scraping down the sides of the cup/bowl as needed.
Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until everything is combined and the dough is a rollable consistency. For easier management of the dough you can place in the refrigerator to chill, the longer you leave it in the fridge the easier it will be to roll!
Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze for at least 1 hour before transferring to a freezer-safe bag or container.
Keep refrigerated or frozen.
Options: roll dough in shredded coconut and/or chopped nuts
I reached 200 pounds after having my children and several things have led me to be healthier for myself and for my family; countless fitness DVDs, a gym membership, leading a weight management class at my church, and a personal trainer telling me I had good symmetry.
My husband and I have competed in several competitions from 2012 to 2015. Every competition brought more information on how to be better and stronger both mentally and physically.
I have learned many things on my fitness journey, but the one thing that I hear over and over no matter what size they are is the self-talk that many women tell themselves regarding the way they see themselves. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have the tools and wisdom of the people around me to help women of all shapes and dynamics to help them on their journey.
