RECIPE: DEBLOATING CINNAMON + GINGER ENERGY BALLS
Debloating Cinnamon + Ginger Energy Balls
Nutritionist Rebecca Warren suggests this recipe as a great gut-friendly option for when hunger strikes between meals or when you’re on the go: “These little bites are easy to make, tasty, and make a perfect snack or treat. Cinnamon stabilizes blood sugar and is well-known for its anti-diabetic effects, while ginger protects and heals the gut, hastens the movement of food through the gastrointestinal tract, and reduces wind, bloating and cramps.”
Although our serving suggestion for Nue Co.'s Debloat + is with nut milk, smoothies, yoghurt or lattes, there’s nothing to stop you getting creative with how you use it. From porridge to energy balls like these, you’ll still reap the deflating benefits due to the three natural carminatives in the formula: Turmeric, Ginger, and Cinnamon—it has ‘food’ in the name for a reason.
