Start from where you are... even it is one step forward, two steps back, you will eventually make the progress you desire. Don’t try to change too much at once; tackle challenges in realistic increments, and be okay with that.

Cashew Citrus Mounds

1 c RAW cashews (un-soaked)

2 T Dried goji berries

3/4 T Unsweetened shredded coconut

2 T Fresh lemon juice

1 T Fresh lemon zest

1 T Agave nectar

Process the cashew in a food processer until resembling a coarse flour.

Add the gogi berries and coconut and process again until very well combined.

Next, add in the lemon juice, zest and agave. Process until well mixed and the dough starts to clump together.

Form the cookies. You can use a good quality ice cream scoop ( a small one!) or as I prefer, you can scoop into rounded tablespoons, packing tightly. Gently tap the spoon on a plate to release the cookie.
