Meatless Monday: Plant Balls

by Planet Umoja November 20, 2017

 

These days preparing and cooking a home-made meal after working all day,  keeping up with social media, and trying to be the best friend, mother, uncle, teacher, etc. might sound like just more work. Driving through a drive thru or popping something in the microwave might be your usual tradition. However, studies are showing that processed foods are filled with chemicals your body cannot recognize making your body work harder and depleting you of your energy and your ability to be your greatest version!

 

(side note, throw away your microwave)

 

Evolution is here, allow me to introduce to you the PLANT ball! Eco friendly and easy on the body.  Made with ingredients you CAN PRONOUNCE! My daughter and I have a saying “If you can’t read it, don’t eat it!”
