Therefore, this natural product is a substantial source of essential nutrients for the human body. People who have a pollen allergy cannot take it, but it is generally appropriate for people of all ages. Recipes: - Fruit salad - Energy balls - Green salad

Balances the pH of the blood It is revitalizing It is a great anticancer Pollen is a super energetic food As I explained at the beginning It has small beads collected by the bees that are the pollen of the flowers themselves

It is hardened but we can also find it fresh and you have to be very careful If you were allergic to pollen in spring through breathing, forbidden to take it

I'm sorry So check it before you take a spoonful because you can really have a bad time

If that's not the case Welcome to the wonderful world of pollen it really eats by simple spoonfuls Now you have to be very careful because it has so much energy that if you overdo it, it can have a similar effect

Like coffee or any other exciting For children one or two teaspoons a day maximum For adults two and even three if you have a lot of physical wear, if you do sports

or if you are in the study season I'll give you some ideas to include the delicious pollen into your diet, first a fruit salad for breakfast

Super easy you can do it with all the fruits that you like but I propose today green apples to which we are going to add pear which is an autumn season fruit To which we will add banana, which always provides potassium

And finally grapes Grapes Generally peeled is softer and you can take it unpeeled

As long as it is organic, otherwise No peeled fruit What we are going to leave are the pips because it is the seed of the grape that has the tannin and besides giving you the tannin, we are going to leave the pips

A crunchy touch What you're going to get It's really going to bring a lot to the body, we put grapes in

and we add orange juice, not apple juice, the apple is already inside, and we go there

With the orange juice What's the special touch The pollen As we are adults here Let's put 4 scoops Small besides being decorative because it looks super nice now you will see it It's also crunchy three and four And this combination is ideal For the mornings or why not for an energetic afternoon snack? The temptation to try it is all There are more ways to take pollen I'm going to give you a delicious recipe of perfect energy balls For when you do a lot of sport if you're going to spend many hours away from home and do not have time to eat you need to satiate your appetite These are the pellets you need We are going to use Pumpkin seeds You put them in a frying pan because you have to toast them first

we also add sunflower seeds

Be careful with the fire temperature Do not burn them, you have to revolver almost immediately let's stir now because this is done super fast Then we add sesame seeds and the pollen stays there for the moment Resting We only buy energy bars in herbalist, in the pharmacy and even in the supermarket because they sell them already Thinking it's something How hard to make, but you can actually make them homemade yourself and they're fabulous

Don't be afraid of the smoke, you can hear the little popping sound this is done in a moment I have it at six

but I'm almost going to take it down Even one more and give it a spin, you'll see it take on a golden color

almost, almost immediately and they smell, a little smell Super rich well, that's it, we already have the golden seeds So that they don't burn, they are removed from the fire

we add honey It depends a little bit on the texture that we want, we add One, two or three or even four we're going to be looking at Why we put them back on the fire Important it is only for heating and mixing

Why Because if we cook honey it loses its properties Although today we are talking about pollen why not learn more about other foods, and mixtures, mixtures

it's evaporating a little bit The seeds are already well smeared and we take them out of the fire Why we don't need it at all and once it's all well mixed we're going to let it cool for a few minutes But not completely because we are going to make the little balls you notice that as soon as it cools down it gets thicker and thicker

While you let the mixture cool You take the opportunity to go and get your hands wet because Because if you don't, you're going to get all the honey and all the seeds and it's going to be a disaster

And what we want is just the opposite is to make some little balls Great which also last a lot and you can take them in a tupperware to work

or you can give them to the kids Tiny little balls that you put on the side of the little plate that you have with pollen let's make a few of them maybe it burns a little bit and it depends on whether You are very sensitive to heat or not if the honey hasn't cooled down, it will melt right away What you do is just wait a little longer and this one's coming apart on me a little bit, but Patience and it is catching you have to go tightening them

So that the seed sticking, sticking that is let's go with a little bit more to do a few

Because what do we do next with the pollen Rebozar As if it were breadcrumbs and we are going to have some energetic dumplings Great it's getting cooler and they are hitting better now They don't look nice and perfect They are a little bit irregular, but that's the fun too

and let's do at least two more it burns me some more honey can take a lot of heat Look, it's sticking to us and it's cooling down quickly Success and let's do one last one it's a super easy recipe and when you try it you are going to subscribe to these little balls energetic a little more and we already have five probably the others have gone cold But not completely So we will be able to pass them Because of the pollen, this one is a little bit off

tightening and this is going to be the first that we go to rebozala, totally The taste of pollen I have a nugget inside, sorry it matches super well with the seeds Here we have one When they harden up completely No nugget of pollen is going to fall off And after five minutes Kneading, wetting hands, kneading again, letting it cool down, making little balls Here is the result of the pollen croquettes as meatballs, as a friend of mine says they are delicious another unusual thing that you can do with pollen is to add it to salads

It combines especially well in those salads that have fruit

and it's like if you put poppy seeds but with more sweetness with more texture I propose you one Recipe Cabbage which is a fabulous food You're going to add spinach a good leafy green with a lot of vitamin C

To combine The amount of one or the other depends on your taste

we add delicious green manzanita, fiber And finally Beet which is pure glucose Color makes a lot of salad happy we throw it all out so we're going to make a pretty sweet salad

You can add whatever vinaigrette you like

I made a super simple honey and lemon and sesame vinaigrette

and we are going to put almost all of it The sesame is also a seed that will give texture to the salad

Stir Mix well that's the big secret secret of the salads, that's the big secret of the salads

stir, stir, stir The beet will give it a lot of color and once you have the mixture The final touch, we give it with the pollen To taste here we have pollen and one or two little handfuls scattering which also decorates a lot but this intense orange color and we have a salad Fabulous energetic, healthy and light And so far these three ideas to use the pollen In the kitchen The energy pellets Add it to fruit salad Or also green salads And you can also use pollen, I don't know how simple things like adding it to your breakfast, to your cereals

you can add it to fruit smoothies or you can put it in yogurt, there are many ways to eat it
