“For years I have craved sugary foods, but didn’t know why. When I saw the local community center was offering a program on Stressed Out Bodies; Cravings, What Are These About I was intrigued to learn more. Michelle Sanderbeck's presentation helped me to understand why my body was craving certain foods and how to give my body the food and nutrients it needs so that I won’t crave the foods that I know that are not good for my health.” Andrew S.

Cashew, Cranberry and Coconut Balls Recipe

 Makes 18 balls


• 1 cup raw cashews
• 1 cup pitted dates
• 1/2 cup dried cranberries
• 1/2 cup vanilla vegan protein powder
• 1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut, plus 2 Tbsp.
• 2 Tbsp. unsweetened almond milk



In a food processor, combine the cashews, dates, cranberries, vanilla protein powder and 1/2 cup shredded coconut and process for 3 minutes, until you have a crumbly, well incorporated consistency. Add 1 tablespoon of the almond milk and process for another 1 to 2 minutes, until the mixture is sticky enough to roll into balls. If the mixture is still too crumbly, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of almond milk and process for another 1 to 2 minutes.

Spread the remaining 2 tablespoons of shredded coconut on a large plate.

Using a tablespoon, scoop the mixture and, with clean wet hands, roll into a ball between your palms. Roll the ball in the coconut to lightly coat and set on a separate plate. Repeat with the remaining mixture until you have 18 balls.

Place the balls in the freezer to set for 1 to 2 hours. Store in the refrigerator until required.
