Nutritionist, Amanda Hamilton's Superfood Snack Balls

Amanda Hamilton, a renowned nutritional expert and one of the UK’s top five "Super-Nutritionists," is also a seasoned professional speaker and author of leading books on nutrition. Her philosophy revolves around advocating for a diet rich in fiber and protein to provide our bodies with essential nutrition. In our fast-paced lives, having a nutrient-packed snack readily available is crucial for sustaining energy levels and maintaining balance.

Amanda shares her recipe for her superfood snack balls, designed to be a high-fiber, energy-boosting snack on the go. These delicious treats are not only convenient but also contain a range of plant-based whole foods to enhance your diet. Prepare them in batches and keep them chilled for those moments when you need a quick and nutritious bite.

This recipe includes one of Doctor Seaweed's Capsules opened and emptied to add a nutritional punch of energy-boosting iodine. Our organic Scottish seaweed offers the only plant-based and sustainable source of iodine to support the thyroid,  metabolism and lift energy levels. We recommend our Pure Seaweed Capsules but our Immunity+ and Menopause+ capsules also work really well!

Doctor Seaweed asks Amanda Hamilton -

How do seaweed supplements help promote wellbeing, including factors like diet, exercise, and lifestyle?

“Our nutritional needs change according to age. So, for example, during perimenopause and menopause, women often require more support. Iodine is so important to so many of your body’s functions. As your body doesn’t make iodine, you need to make sure you’re getting adequate levels from your diet, along with supplements when needed, so that your thyroid has the most basic building blocks to make its key hormones.”

50g rolled oats (gluten-free if required)
Two tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
One capsule of Doctor Seaweed’s Supplements opened
Two tablespoons flax seeds
Two tablespoons chia seeds
One tablespoon maple syrup
Two tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
One tablespoon sesame seeds for coating

Place all the ingredients (except the sesame seeds) in a food processor and blend into a dough. Spread the sesame seeds on a plate. Use a spoon to shape the dough into balls about 2cm wide. Roll the balls in the seeds to coat—place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to harden. Store in the fridge until ready to serve.
