Bites or Bars? Wild Blueberry Pistachio Power Bites Recipe can be both
Raw Bars or Bites are simply different shapes for the same type of raw, powerful, healthy recipe. Any of these recipes can be pressed into a pan to make bars or rolled into balls to make bites. Any shape you make them, just be sure to put them in an air tight container and then into the fridge! They’ll easily keep for up to a week (if they stay around that long).
Healthy Ingredients in our Wild Blueberry Pistachio Power Bites Recipe
- Oats- I prefer to use whole grain oats because they hold up better that quick oats for baking. Did you know that oats in any form help to lower bad cholesterol, are rich in antioxidants, and a great source of fiber?
- Chia Seeds- Despite their small size, chia seeds are full of important nutrients. They are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium. Omega-3 fatty acids help raise HDL cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke.
- Milled flaxseed- is also a great source of lignans, which are a powerful antioxidant that helps your body maintain a healthy blood cholesterol level, high in Omega 3 Fatty Acids, high in dietary fiber, helps reduce blood pressure, and improves cholesterol.
- Blueberries- The fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin C, vitamin B6, and phytonutrient content in blueberries supports heart health. The absence of cholesterol from blueberries is also beneficial to the heart. Fiber content helps to reduce the total amount of cholesterol in the blood and decrease the risk of heart disease.
- Pistachios- are a great source of healthy fats, fiber, protein, antioxidants, and various nutrients, including vitamin B6 and thiamine. Their health effects may include weight loss benefits, lower cholesterol and blood sugar, and improved gut, eye, and blood vessel health.
- Sea Salt- is mostly composed of sodium chloride, a compound that helps regulate fluid balance and blood pressure in the body. Since it’s minimally processed, it contains some minerals, including potassium, iron, and calcium.
- Almond Butter- is a good source of the healthy monounsaturated fats our bodies need. These fats are associated with lowering the risk of heart disease. Eating almonds offers antioxidant action from Vitamin E and helps lower cholesterol.

Happy Day its Fit Friday!
This next week I am presenting to a group about Healthy Living. In preparing I went back to the most basic question, why? What is the point in living a healthy life, why should it be a priority? I came across this quote by Plato that struck a chord;
There are four key elements to being physically healthy. Over the next four weeks I will hit each one of these in more detail.
