Wheatgrass Tahini Balls
Wonderful wheatgrass! Rich in chlorophyll - about 60-70% - wheatgrass is a great blood builder, increasing oxygen levels, nutrients and vitamins in the blood. This chlorophyll helps to decrease likelihood of infection and sickness. Its high protein content is ideal for smart snacking and muscle building.

This one’s pretty easy: Add all the ingredients except the sesame seeds to a blender or food processor then blitz until smooth. If you don’t have either, put some elbow grease into it and mix with a wooden spoon in a bowl.
Roll into small palm-sized balls, then roll in the seeds to give an even coating. You can store them in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
Our friends at Pollen and Grace wrote this blog for us all about those green heroes, Spirulina and Wheatgrass. Look out for some amazing recipes from them on how you can use both in the kitchen starting next week!
