Today marks the start of the Waterloo Cleanse. I am really excited about doing this. Last year when I went to the Naturopath, I did a three week cleanse and I felt fabulous after. This time I will only be doing the cleanse for two weeks, but I am anticipating great things.
In tandem with the cleanse, I am have decided to purchase a $40 one month introductory pass to Moksha Yoga. The Moksha Yoga Waterloo studio is one of the sponsors for the Waterloo Cleanse. Moksha Yoga is also hosting an event that started today called Living your Moksha which is a 7 week program with a new challenge every week. One of the reasons I signed up for the Living your Moksha program is because all the proceeds all go to Free the Children.
To start this cleanse off I made No Bake Breakfast Bars – one of the recipes provided by Vibrant Living. I have to say these bars were super fast and easy to make and they tasted awesome! I
think know we will make these again.
These need to chill for at least 1 hr:
2 cup dried puffed rice cereal
1/2 cup almond butter
1/3 cup agave syrup
1/2 cup hempseeds or hempseed protein powder (from Manitoba harvest) I used hemp seeds
1/2 cup organic raisins
Olive oil for coating the pan
Mix puffed rice, hemp seeds or protein and raisins in a large mixing bowl.
In a sauce pan on low heat, combine nut butter with agave and stir until melted. Thoroughly mix the nut butter and agave after it is warmed and add to the mixture.
Stir until all the puffed rice is evenly coated with the nut butter and agave.
Lightly oil a 9 x 9 square pan. Press the mixture into the pan, making sure it is even on all sides. Refrigerate for at least an hour, but preferably longer, so the bars set.
Note: Keep bars refrigerated until ready to eat.
