I've started juicing these past two weeks and my energy levels have definitely improved (mostly feel more alert in the mornings). In terms of snacks it can be pretty tempting when you hit the wall to eat some processed crap just because it's there! My girlfriend and I went about reverse engineering our favourite snack from back in New Zealand which is something we used to buy all the time called "Frooze Balls". Basically, it's a raw vegan mash up of dates, apricots, almonds and cashews rolled in coconut - so delicious! All you need to do is put everything in a food processor until it turns into a sticky mess and just roll them into small tablespoon sized balls then roll them in coconut (unsweetened of course!).
1/2 cup of dates
1/2 cup of dried apricots
1/3 cup of combined almonds and cashews
It works out a whole lot cheaper than buying processed snacks anyway. We're going to make a huge batch of these this weekend after we track down some bulk bins
