Balancing my third eye has been a way more spiritual practice than physical. Its more to do with focusing consciously on the things we do during the day and also doing meditations that focus on our mind’s eye (the third eye).
In my last blog post, I did mention some foods that will help restore balance to this very sacred energy centre. Cacao being one of the healing spices to do the trick. Here are 2 of my favourite recipes, the one being my raw vegan chocolate (and you can make so many variations by adding in different nuts and spices), and the other one is my secret Ferrero Rocher ball recipe, which is ridiculously yummy and also very healthy.
Just a quick one, how do I determine a healthy treat? I always look at the ingredients in these yummy munchies. I usually make my own but luckily there are some amazing brands who have started developing some totally legal and Suskia approved recipes. Always check your ingredients, the rawer, the better. And by raw, I mean natural. You must be able to read and understand the ingredients in products.
Raw Walnut and Coconut Chocolate:
Healthy Ferrero Rocher Balls:
1 cup dates, pitted and soaked in boiling water for 5 minutes and drained
1/2 cup hazelnuts

1/4 cup dark chocolate, melted
Place dates, cacao, salt, and hazelnuts into a food processor or blender and pulse until combined like a dough
Roll into equal sized balls placing a whole hazelnut into the middle first
Dunk half the ball into the dark chocolate and roll in chopped hazelnuts
